If you have a looming date to stare at art for an indeterminate amount of time with a person you intend on wooing, then you should know about the etiquette expectations that will make or cripple your romantic festivities. For those that emerge, validated, from the museum’s exit, the spoils of a successful date await. But without the prerequisite knowledge, you may find that the love you hoped to detect in the air has been replaced with the bitter smell of revolt.

Here’s what you’ll need to do to get a second date:

No matter how knowledgeable you may be about art, never force your opinion onto your date. A first date is no place to unleash a disparaging volley on romanticism or Picasso, especially if your date holds an opposing stance.

Perhaps you are the uninitiated one. In this case, you’ll want to be inquisitive and open to learning. Don’t forget that you’re on a date, though, and not in art class — don’t interrogate your date to get every last boring detail.

Get comfortable with your date and forget about the art. In the end, you need to remember you’re at the art museum to meet another person. If you’re uncomfortable or too focused on what’s around you, you’ll miss what’s right in front of you.

Happy Dating!
