What To Avoid Doing On a First Date

October 15th, 2012 · No Comments

When going on a date, there are several things you should avoid. Follow these tips to help your first date go smoothly and hopefully help you score a second one.

Be selective in the personal details you share with your date. Don’t give out too many personal details on a first date, as this may scare some people away, but sharing basic information about yourself, such as where you grew up, what you like to do in your spare time, etc., is perfectly acceptable. Don’t, however, talk about past relationships or bring up very personal information. Additionally, you don’t want to brag, as this may also turn people away. Try to be modest in the way you talk with your date and make sure you both share the conversation equally rather than one of you doing all the talking.

Do not fiddle with your phone. This will make it look like you aren’t interested in the date at all and it is very disrespectful. It is okay to leave you phone on in case of an emergency, but you should not be texting other people or taking unnecessary phone calls when you are sharing the night with your date.

Do not lie for any reason. If you are looking to go on a second date and hope that this relationship may potentially get serious, then lying on the first date can cause complications later in the relationship. Try to be completely honest with your date.

Don’t do anything to make your date uncomfortable, such as touching them in certain areas, asking personal questions, etc. This may compromise your chances of having a second date.
