Never empty your glass – You might be shaking like a leaf and nothing would settle your nerves more than to knock back the glass of wine on your table, but trust me, it’s not worth it.
If you want to stay in control of the date and keep him interested then take it easy and don’t overindulge.

This is not to say that you can’t ever reach out to a man you’re dating, but let him do the asking out — at least in the early stages. You deserve someone who wants to reach out to you, call you, and ask you out. Words are helpful, and you should use them sometimes. Try something like, “You know, I’d really like not to see other people. ” If he gives you an answer you aren’t looking for, buh-bye.
