You could even be a bit cheeky and use the information to suggest a date, for example “There’s a great food festival in Edinburgh soon that I’m planning to head to”. ’ pages on Muddy Matches to see if anyone you fancy is going to a particular event and say in your message “I spotted that you’re going to the Henley Regatta too, maybe we’ll bump into each other”.
Comments like these make it easy for someone to say “yes it would be great to meet up at the event”.
Sitting in silence - The Four Seasons may have proclaimed that , but on a first date it’s not the best way to bond.
