Make sure that you choose someone who is respectful and who is an outright gentleman
My first teenage date was going out to dinner. My date and I went to Cheddars restaurant. We talked and asked each other questions to get to know each other better.
We laughed and had a really good time. He was the perfect gentleman and very respectful. We ended up becoming high school sweethearts and maintained a relationship for seven years from the time we were in tenth grade.
