Dating can feel a little daunting especially if you’re new to the game, so this is a pretty smart dating tip to keep yourself safe when you meet up for the first, second, or third time. Hopefully, you’ve already chosen where you’re going to have the date, so now you can show up early and talk to the server or bartender. By filling them in on your date and giving them a codeword or phrase such as ‘can I get a strong coffee’, you can quickly alert someone if you feel unsure about how your date is going. When you say your secret message, they could say a friend is asking for you at another table, or you need to come to the front desk for a moment.
