The Top Five Things Not to Do On a First Date

Written by Robin Shack, Friday, September 2nd, 2016 in Dating Columns, Sex & Dating

blind-datesHave you ever gone on a first date and left with no doubt there would be a second?  Did the conversation flow naturally, with no awkward silences?  Was there a mutual attraction, flirty moments and maybe even a lovely kiss goodnight?  If you’re nodding yes to all of these questions, but shaking your head in confusion as to why she never returned your post-first-date call, continue reading for some answers.  Below are five of the biggest, albeit innocent, mistakes guys make on a first date.

  1. You talked about your ex too much. Mentioning her in passing, briefly, is not a deal breaker.  Talking about her at length, including the broken heart she left you with and her unrivaled beauty, is a big no-no.
  2. Expecting your date to pay/split the bill. Some might disagree, but I am old-school and I think the man picking up the tab on date number one is the gentlemanly thing to do.
  3. Speaking of the bill, please do not ask your date how much you should leave for the tip. This happened to me multiple times when I was in the dating world.  It’s a turn off.  Be the man that you are and figure it out!
  4. Trying to get too far too fast. Sure, when the attraction is there and hormones are doing their thing, it’s easy to get carried away.  Just make sure you are respectful and don’t push the envelope.  If you both like each other and continue to date, things will progress naturally.
  5. Don’t see a movie! I always find it amusing when I hear about first dates that involved sitting in silence for a solid two hours, while staring at the movie screen.  How the heck are two people supposed to get to know each other when there is no communication?  Save it for any date but the first!

Now that you know what not to do on a first date, you might be wondering which things are on the to-do list.  Stay tuned for my next article—The Top Five Things to Do On a First Date.
