    find out if he has a brother. living in ny state.

    and don't check to see if you have something stuck in your teeth at the dinner table. saw this on the dating story once. very unattractive.

    Why wear underwear at all? Just gets in the way.

    I think she should go shopping here

    It's been many years since I had a date, let me try to remember.
    l. Eat a raw onion, that will keep him a safe distance away.

    2. Meet in a mutually agreed upon place, in public with lots of people around (shouldn't be too hard in Las Vegas)

    3. Bring enough money to pay for your own dinner and transportation home if needed.

    4. Get all your bad habbits out of the way early, if they don't scare him away, he may have potential. (i.e. picking teeth, burping, etc...)

    5. Ask to see his drivers license, if you have a friend in the police station it wouldn't be a bad idea to run a check on him for any criminal records.

    6. Ask about his relationship with his mother, if he treats his mother good he will be good to you (or so they say)

    7. Find out if he has any children, if he is divorced does he pay alimony and stay involved in his childrens lives

    Oh, hell, I'm flying out there to supervise, I will bring my walkie talkies so I know what is going on I don't want to miss anything.

    Wear a pager and have a friend page you half way through the date. This way, you have an excuse to leave in case his dental work doesn't meet your expectations. Course, I havent dated in 20 years and I'm petrified to do so. Take my advice because I'm certainly not using it.

    Check out his shoes...men's shoes can provide a few clues.
    NB AVOID MEN WHO WEAR THOSE GIRLY SLIP-ON TYPE SHOES...you know, those ones that are worn without socks.

    Check out his clothing and general appearance...did he spend more time getting ready than you did? IMHO too much attention to detail is a bad sign................like beautifully manicured nails on a guy. For me, gold jewelry on a guy isn't good...but I do realise that there are exceptions.

    It's good if he likes and respects his mother...........but TOO MUCH ATTACHMENT TO HER IS A BAD SIGN

    Watch how he treats the waiters etc

    Does he try too hard to please you? Is he trying to be someone that he has worked out that you want?

    Look for guys that are always wiping their noses.

    Ask lots of open ended questions without being obvious

    And if he passes my test...have fun, Zig.

    Don't take your eyes off your drink for a second!
    Do not leave the table until you have drank and eaten everything you plan on consuming he might slip you one of those date rape drugs.
    Only meet him for lunch on the first few dates and nothing more.
    Keep yourself SAFE! The gift wrapping may look good but you don't know what's brewing on the inside...

    Good advice, Giuseppe.

    Also, if I can add...

    Look out for guys that want to meet you in UNFAMILIAR territory [you know...where they are unlikely to run into friends and WIFE]

    Always pays with cash...doesn't want clues on credit card statements

    And, IMHO... guys that slick their hair back with oil...can't trust them [hoping I don't offend anybody but that is my observation]
