You'll learn even more about your date, and be more relaxed. Also, learn to respond appropriately. Avoid vileness, faithlessness, perversity, slander, evil, pride, deceit, and lying. No matter how excited, turned on or thrilled you may be about this date, listening to what your date says, watching what your date does and understanding how your date feels are still your primary objectives. If someone who warms your heart-cockles remembers your favorite song which you mentioned in passing 6 months earlier , it's sweet.
