I’ve got a cold again that is now in the coughing stage. As such, do I reschedule my first date currently with IT Guy currently slated for tomorrow? Or do I keep the commitment as it stands?

  1. You wouldn’t want to have a bad time just because you are under the weather. I’d reschedule (“Terrible cold – how about Tuesday instead?). If you pick a day to commit I’m sure he’ll be fine with it.

  2. I suggest that you call him, inform him that you’e still recovering from a cold and that you wouldn’t want it to make for an uncomfortable first date. Offer to reschedule, but you can leave the door open to still go on the date if he insists.
    It’s just that if you are still coughing, it would make the “first date kiss” portion of the evening especially awkward, and you might not enjoy the date as much.

  3. I feel your pain. I just spent the weekend with my sweetie that I hadn’t seen in 4 months. I let him know that I was sick and told him that I’d understand if he wanted to back out. He said there was no way that would happen and we still had a wonderful weekend together.
    Just tell him you have a cold and let him make the decision whether to reschedule or go ahead and go.
    Good luck!
