Dating can be fun and casual, but it can also bring so much anxiety. Depending on where you are in life and what your goals and values are, you might want something a little more serious than a fling. And that's okay.

Those who are looking for longterm relationships, it's understandable why they experience a lot of pressure when it comes to finding The One—and it all starts with the first date. PlentyOfFish, a dating app, surveyed 400 former users who ended up marrying their matches. From August 16 to 20, 2018, they found that the best type of date is the kind that encourages couples to have real conversations.

Dating expert Kate MacLean told Bustle, "Dates that foster conversation will help you get to know someone better and will determine whether or not date #2 is in your future."

Another tip that works is setting the date in a place you go to often so you're comfortable enough: "When you’re at ease on a first date, there’s less room for any awkward interactions."

Remember this when you decide to jump back in to the dating scene.
