    You want to make it a night you love to remember, not a night you love to forget. Or a night you couldn't remember if you wanted. Look, just pace yourself, and remember you've got nothing to prove and you're trying to have fun. So, sure have a few to take the edge off.

    There's a simple rule for life, relationships and first dates, "If the bad out weighs the good, do something else." It's a first date, don't force it if the two of you don't have a connection, there is no reason to stick it out. Even if it seems a bit rude, at least you won't be wasting the rest of either of your evenings.
