is the first date always awkward
especially if you dont know the person
Not always. But usually!
Pretty much... but I think after the first hour or 2, it gets better.
Not always, if it is awkward then I would think maybe something isn't right, I think you should always click with someone who could be a potential mate right from the start. It should never be awkward with them, not even on the first date.
ill stay single for life.
Most of the time, unless you've been friends for a while.
