So how many times, or have you ever been in the supermarket, out doing grocery shopping or just making a stop at a shopping plaza and someone comes up and starts small talk? The conversation is light and friendly, and then the question is asked, “So, are you single?” And then you know where the conversation is going. You have encountered an Accidental Date.
Meeting An Accidental Date
Meeting an accidental date by chance, inadvertently, or coincidentally is still possible. If you are the one who gets asked the question, it shows that you have something to spark an initial attraction. And if you are the one who initiates and eventually asks the question, it also shows that you have an attractive quality because you managed to attract and capture the attention of a stranger.
After getting that initial attention, if there’s still interest, then you’ll certainly be inspired in trying to arrange a first date with your accidental date. That first date may even be the same location where you both had that first chance encounter. It would however be a somewhat unusual date as it would be geared toward whatever activity you both were doing at the time of the first meeting.
So for example, if it were grocery shopping where you encountered your accidental date, then you could both agree to meet at the store at around the same time maybe the next week, or whatever time is convenient for both of you. Agreeing to meet at a public location for a routine activity is best because you both are total strangers to each other. The way you and your accidental date met would have been different from other situations where you would have gotten at least some chance to know a little about the person, or to get some knowledge from someone else who knows the person.
It’s not impossible however, for there to be such an infatuation at that first meeting that you both immediately agree to go elsewhere for a real first date. If that’s the case, then some caution needs to be taken. You have to remember that as an accidental date, you really don’t know the person, and so your personal safety should be utmost in your mind.
That first date should be a very public place, such as a restaurant, Movie Theater, or other venue with many people around. It’s unwise for it to be at a park or for you to venture to a secluded area even while you may have gone to a very public place for the first date. For example, the parking lots of some establishments are poorly lit and an assault could take place in a matter of minutes without anyone knowing.
And while the date may be planned for a public location, attention needs to also be given about how you will get to the location. If your accidental date offers to pick you up, you need to exercise caution to make sure there are no potentially dangerous spots along the way where your accidental date could make a detour.
It is also important to note that the above-mentioned precautions apply whether you are male or female. If you are a male for example, you may not be intimidated by a female, especially if she appears to be far less physically strong than you are. But what if she has accomplices and they all set up to rob or assault you?
For all the reasons mentioned, it’s also preferable that the first date with your accidental date not take place at someone’s residence.
Among the pluses of meeting someone an accidental date is that it’s very exciting to meet a new person whom you know nothing about. That will cause a lot of anticipation and you’ll be very motivated to find out more about your accidental date, which is what dating is all about.
