We’re a finicky bunch, Londoners, but thankfully LondonNet has your tips on keeping all-things-dating smooth and successful…

Dating in LondonGo into the first date expecting nothing more than a quick kiss or snog. Most people won’t hop into bed on the first night.

Avoid talking about exes, politics, marriage, money and other touchy subjects – keep the conversation light and fun in the beginning.

Go Dutch. Offer to pay your tab even if you know your date will grab the bill.

Inform a friend of your evening’s plans. It’s always better to be overly cautious when spending time with new people.

Be on time – just like a job interview, your date is scoping you out, and showing up on the dot is a sign of respect.

Ask plenty of questions. Show that you’re interested by listening and making insightful comments.

Use an uncomfortable silence to your advantage. First dates are full of awkward moments – just take a drink, change the subject or make a joke out of them.

Be honest and confident from the beginning – if the relationship goes far, you’ll be happy you were straight-forward.
