Perhaps you used a dating website that boasts a complicated algorithm to pick potential partners. You've selected a venue, or your date has, factoring in a number of variables will there be candlelight, seclusion, are you likely to be rushed by the waiters?
You've chosen an outfit, no doubt giving some thought to what your clothes say about you. Will you be a fashionable five minutes late? Have you got your small talk prepared? Have you considered who will pay the bill? If you believe the research, then the decisions you make — even the little ones — all have the potential to increase your chances of getting a second date. Some of the larger dating sites pride themselves on their scientific approach to matchmaking.
It seems it's no longer enough to rely on the possibility that you and your date will just "click". You've got to trust in the science of attraction.

But what do we really know about creating chemistry between two people? Then there are the physical factors that influence attractiveness — we tend to select a partner who we judge to be as good-looking as we see ourselves.
Beyond that, it all gets a little silly — and sexist. Researchers at the University of Westminster found that when men were hungry, they were more likely to be attracted to women with higher BMIs. A separate study revealed that women consistently rated the same man more attractive when he was pictured behind the wheel of a Bentley convertible, rather than a Ford Fiesta.
No doubt you've heard that wearing red is meant to signal sexual availability, but did you know that having a facial scar can enhance a man's attractiveness? Oh, and researchers in Texas believe that "a positive correlation of function-word [personal pronouns, articles and conjunctions] similarity" signals the likelihood of a good match.
However, this only applies when the activities remind us of our hunter-gatherer ancestry. So driving without a seatbelt or not bothering to update antivirus software doesn't count. This is all great trivia, but unlikely to have much bearing on your real experiences of dating unless you're going on some very unusual dates. It's also worth remembering that studies such as the ones above are, more often than not, based on a sample of volunteer students in the psychology department.
Some of the principles identified in heterosexual research may carry across, but until more research is done we won't know for sure. Are they worth paying attention to? But crucially, this is when you perform these behaviours in a natural way without too much conscious effort. Once you start deliberately mimicking the other person, forcing your laughter, and carefully planning an arm touch, the chances are that you'll end up seeming odd.
But still, there's something very seductive about the idea that we may be able to change our fate with the right choice of outfit or a well-timed joke. And then if it all goes wrong, we can blame the experts, rather than ourselves.
What have we learned? Beware the waiter or waitress — they may be your competition.
Alamy So, nearly dates later, what can we glean from the experiences of the Guardian's Blind Daters? Not one, not two, but three dates were derailed by bits of flying lobster, so it's best to play safe and avoid altogether. If we sent you to a seafood restaurant, we're very sorry. And if your date has just told you she's allergic to shellfish, it's probably best not to order the prawns and the crab, Archie.
You might think you're on safe ground with a fellow Guardian reader, but you'd be wrong.
Perhaps just remember to ask your date one or two polite questions, rather than launch into a monologue about your childhood. A cup of tea is a euphemism for "I do not want to see this person again, but I am too polite to say so.
Think about your compliments. Followed by 'don't worry, I love my sister'," said Andrew. Unsurprisingly, Catherine wasn't all that sure she wanted to see him again. Serving staff are the enemy. Not really, your waiter or waitress is probably very nice but you may be in competition with them for your date's affections.
Although you wouldn't know it from some of our Blind Dates. Others, though, have a better philosophy. That made the whole thing easier. It should really go without saying — however, more than one of our Blind Daters appeared to be suspiciously attached. At least some were big enough to own up. I realise this makes me sound a bastard.
