Cafes have evolved. Now they are spaces for meetings, work, hanging out, dating, live music, poetry slams, and art exhibitions. However, the first coffee shop is a place for middle /upper-class people to meet and discuss ideas, political aspirations, and agreements.
There are many reasons for having a coffee conversation. Unlike conversations at dinner, coffee conversations show relaxed conversations without pressure, quick meetings. They are good for the first meeting. Coffee conversations show how long the interaction will take place. This can provide a quick connection with someone without a commitment to a longer meeting.
Coffee is a great way to facilitate relationships, whether it’s platonic, romantic, or to work. It’s also much easier, more efficient, more affordable, and less impressive to invite someone to drink coffee than dinner.
The first meeting
With online dating, meeting first in public places such as coffee shops is widely considered the safest idea. It’s also popular because most people enjoy good coffee.
Because coffee increases energy and concentration, that’s another good reason to meet at a coffee shop. If you feel nervous, it might be wise to arrive early, get your coffee first, and feel comfortable, so you feel the benefits of your coffee when your date arrives.
Some people suggest that you should not choose your favourite store in your neighbourhood, who knows the date is not going well. You may feel challenged to face your favourite baristas and anyone who knows you next.
But on the plus side, coffee conversations can be as short or as long as needed. Depending on how you think the date, you can finish your glass and leave, or you can order another to extend the meeting.
If you have a first date at a restaurant, on the other hand, you have to wait for your food to be prepared, wait for your date to eat, and then pay the bill afterwards, which can seem like forever if you find that you don’t match!
It seems that there have been more divisions over the text lately. However, for traditionalists who feel the conversation is the best, coffee conversations can work well.
Again, it can be longer or shorter depending on what needs to be said and how the conversation takes place. Breaking up is rarely easy, but when both parties respect each other and can have calm conversations, it’s best for everyone to get closed.
Technology influences coffee conversations like this also referred to as ‘breaking dates.’ Even though millennials like their communication tools, sometimes you need to look at someone’s face and say what you need to say.
You have to play this one by one. It might be better to break up with someone personally than with text, but no one wants to feel very vulnerable and their emotions are displayed in a busy place too. As you choose your beans, choose moment, words and method carefully at least.
