A little earpiece, hardly more than an unobtrusive earring, wirelessly connected to a cell-phone sized unit on your belt. As the date goes on, touch the earpiece to get suggested smalltalk/romantic innuendo/excuses to your heart's desire, selected by operators standing by.
Your feelings about
the date can be relayed to the operators by secret signals - tap your wrist for romantic interest, tap your leg for a need to get away, and so on. The belt unit monitors heart rate, blood pressure, etc.

||If you've managed to get a date then you probably don't need any more help. It's trying to get the date in the first place that's difficult. What's really needed is a Groundhog Day Effect Generator so you can just keep trying until you get it right.
||Done on Sabrina The Teenage Witch. Sabrina took over Hilda, controlling her voice and actions, and made her speak to get her to chat up a teacher to make him nicer to her. But Sabrina's mate came along, and started talking to her. With hilarious consequences, natch. I'm really really sorry I know that.
||Also almost baked on the BBC TV show "Would Like To Meet", where they watch a dinner date and after the starter, the dater goes into the toilet where he/she gets advice from Lowri Turner and a team of experts. I kid you not.
