You generally find out what you can about your date from friends and social media, so you can have plenty of things to talk about. Therefore, many of the ways that you discuss things with your date, and the way you present yourself can be directly applied to many of the ways you communicate in business situations where you have performed the correct amount of research.
Dating often involves negotiation. When trying to decide where to go for dinner, or when discussing what to do after a movie, there is often the element of give and take that usually involves compromise and a certain amount of deal making.
