If you have any dos or don'ts to add, please feel free to share them with us in the comments below!

Do Don't
  • Do keep an open mind.
  • Do be yourself — remember, he liked you for a reason the first time you met!
  • Do dress to impress.
  • Do listen intently, and make sure to ask questions that will help you get to know him better.
  • Do order foods that agree with you.
  • Do end the night with a kiss — if you like him, of course!
  • Don't let your nerves get the best of you.
  • Don't overdress, show too much cleavage, or wear something too tight or too short.
  • Don't spend too much time (if any at all) talking about your past relationships.
  • Don't use or check your cell phone — just be in the moment.
  • Don't forget your manners.
  • Don't drink too much!
