So it's better to talk less and listen more, especially on the first date.
It's a convenient as well as a safe option because; just in case the guy turns out to be a creep, you would have shared minimal personal information about yourself!
These things are very important as they are bound to cause friction in later days, if both of you ever decide to take things further.
Is he chivalrous, does he treat you with respect, is he attentive towards you, and not easily distracted by other females in the vicinity? Has he strived hard in his career and has dreams of making something more of himself?
Do not wear dresses that will give him the wrong impression about you.
