Cupid’s Advice:

If a dinner date has you panicked with thoughts of stuffy restaurants and a laundry list of table etiquette to remember, a laid-back afternoon coffee date may be right up your alley:

1. Keep it casual: Coffee dates are notoriously casual.  You don’t have to dress up, and you aren’t pressured to order a smaller size with non-fat milk instead of your usual venti with a double shot of espresso.

2. You have an out: By scheduling a coffee date in the afternoon, you eliminate the awkward “end of the night kiss” scenario.  You have the opportunity to arrive and leave separately, and the stiff car conversation will never take place.

3. Price point: If nothing else, grabbing a cup of joe to-go is a lot cheaper than dinner for two.  So if you’d like to impress on a budget, schedule an afternoon caffeine break coupled with a stroll in the park — the perfect fall date.
