I am the type of guy who wears a hat in the street but not wearing a hat while sitting in the lobby would only mean youre normal, because youre sitting with some one for 2 hours. most people I know take their hat off by dates. look around a typical lobby where there are a few dates and most are not wearing hats.

Take off once you’re sitting down

Try to find a shadchan whom you know to have a relationship/past experience with the boy, explain why you think it’s a terrific idea, and many shadchanim would be willing to suggest it as a “shidduch suggested by a friend who’d like to remain anonymous”. Hatzlacha!
