Tak­ing a date to the work Christ­mas party

The Courier-Mail - Career One - - News -

Make sure the of­fice Christ­mas party isn’t your first date. Go out at least once be­fore­hand to get to know each other.

Work out prior how you met be­cause ev­ery­one will ask. Many are com­fort­able say­ing they were in­tro­duced through a dat­ing agency, but some aren’t.

Make sure the other per­son is con­fi­dent about the sit­u­a­tion. Is the per­son you’re tak­ing com­fort­able with mix­ing on their own?

Limit al­co­hol to three drinks or less. You could em­bar­rass your­self, and if you end up in bed to­gether at the end of the night, you’re likely to blow your chances of a long-term re­la­tion­ship.

If you don’t have a ro­man­tic con­nec­tion with any­one, think about tak­ing some­one you sim­ply get along with well.

In­tro­duce your date as your friend.

Have fun and be your­self. If you try to be some­one dif­fer­ent, you will be found out.
