The first thing to recognize is that these snafus can happen and it's not going to make or break your date.You can also try using acceptance to deal with embarrassment.), you can simply accept that it's okay to have occurred. Another example is that if you like the person, don't be afraid to say you had a good time.
You worry that you might spill or drop something (I personally have a penchant for dropping forks when I'm nervous), have an awkward silence, or encounter an embarrassing situation (like running into an ex or tripping).Instead, you can change your reaction to it when it occurs. My now-husband made it clear to me that our first date was his treat.Rather than push your emotions away (or want to hide! This is an example of how you can eliminate some uncertainties to make your date go more smoothly.Uncertainty doesn't always have to be scary; the unknown can facilitate excitement, fun, and romance.Acceptance is the idea that you can't change what is already there; you acknowledge that you'll have many experiences as you go through dating -- some fun, others anxiety provoking, and yet others embarrassing. For me, when I was single and dating, I had major anxiety about paying the bill.
And you can't control or prevent your emotions from happening. I knew most guys would offer to pay, but I didn't want to offend them by not offering to split the check.
