Proper etiquette on dating

If, hypothetically, you showed up 20 minutes after you were supposed to, a gentleman should say, "No, I made the reservation too early." I like this piece of etiquette.

If you switch eye contact and begin to stare into their right eye, it means you aren't enjoying the conversation.

It's rude to keep anyone waiting, especially your date.

If you know you will be running behind, let your date know ahead of time.

Dates are supposed to be enjoyable, not uncomfortable.

You should also be polite to the other people you encounter on your date, including servers.

Apparently the proper way to cross your legs is at your ankles. Meier suggests carrying a clutch so you can hold it on your lap or in front of you if you like to have something to do with your hands.

Your knees and your ankles should be pressed together at all times. Here's something new I learned: A "gentleman" would never let you think that you are late to a date.

(I've never gotten past texting; I actually have no idea what real dating is like.) Trust me on this.
