    First I would suggest taking a deep breath (or several thousand :)). Dates should be about having fun, sadly they're often really stressful. But one way to rid yourself of the stress is to remember that whomever your meeting probably has the same tension.

    You can go easy with just a coffee or you can go for the whole event and food deal. The important thing is for you to feel comfortable. And since its the first date you have a high chance of not liking the other person, so just have fun with it.

    No matter what happens they can't hurt you. I'd focus on a mantra saying," It's just anxiety. It's just anxiety."

    After all, drinking yourself silly before a date is Sooo last year.
