When you finally do land the all-important first date, you'll probably spend a lot of time wondering if you're saying the "right" stuff or if the other person thinks you're as awkward as you feel.
Quite frankly, it's a miracle that any of us actually end up in serious relationships with all the hassle it takes to get there. But what should you know before you date someone? Whether you're gearing up for your first date with someone or preparing to take things to the next level with a person you've been seeing for a while, it's always good to ask yourself what you really want out of this. Maybe you're looking for your soulmate , or maybe you're just hoping for a quality fling, but either way, you should always look for someone who is, at the very least, a decent person with whom you're reasonably compatible.

Their Current Relationships With Their Exes The obvious reason for this is that you don't want to be involved with someone who is still hung up on someone else. The less obvious one is that how a person describes the people they've previously dated says a lot about them.
Occasionally, people do have really bad luck with relationships, but more often than not, when a person describes all their exes as being "psychos" or "bitches," the exes weren't really the problematic ones in the relationships. If your person of interest says something like "They're a good person, just not for me," or, "This one cheated on me, but I'm actually still on decent terms with that one," then it's a good sign that they're mature and are emotionally ready to start dating again.

There are some couples who do really well with only seeing each other for an hour every week, and there are others who would prefer to spend every waking moment with their S. Just make sure you know what you want before committing to anything serious.
