if you're in a get to know each other stage how would you act to avoid giving an impression of boredom? well we cannot hide the fact that even first dates sometimes turn into a not so good experience, sometimes the person you're dating to is a bencher and a boring person who can not enliven the date. in one way or another we all experience being on a date, but what if our date really bore us to death. what will you do to avoid offending him/her? would you still go on with the date and pretend you are enjoying or would you immediately call it a night pretending you suddenly felt sick.

If I didn't enjoy and I don't like him, I will not let him hope for something, I will be telling him that I am not interested anymore to go out not because he is boring or whatever, but because I want him to find another woman.It maybe sound so straight but it will be unfair also to myself if I will be pretending.To avoid boredom in a date, I prefer to go for playing any sport that we both enjoy rather than sitting in the park and talking.I have tried those types of dates and I sometimes regret because of the boredom..LOL

Go to a movie you both want to see. This will give you something to talk about after. And it is a good ice breaker. If that doesn't work and the person just doesn't enliven the date, you don't have to go again.

Before saying anything on your discussion, dear Marion, I'd like to know about dating.Dating as such is not a well known custom in our culture or may be not there at all.And there is one called 'petting'. Are both of them permitted by the culture? When is used for what ? PS: Sorry, if I trouble you.
