10 Things You Should NEVER Do On a First Date

Don’t ruin your first date by getting drunk, being late or talking about past relationships


A first date can be nerve-wracking. You spend too much time deciding what to wear and thinking of intelligent things to say; ultimately, you want to make a good impression. Don’t ruin it by getting drunk, being late or talking about past relationships.

No one wants to feel like he or she is being interviewed; your first date should be comfortable, you should feel relaxed and at ease. You don’t need to fill in the silence every time; refrain from asking too many questions, especially personal ones.

If you are looking for a serious relationship, don’t have sex on the first date; better yet, don’t even talk about it. It’s a personal topic for many; you will have plenty of time to discuss it if the relationship persists.

Make sure that you choose your meal carefully. This means avoiding messy foods, but also eating normally. Don’t order ribs, unless you want to embarrass yourself with sauce all over your face; and if you do order the garden salad, don’t be too shy to actually eat it.

Dress for the occasion, research the restaurant you’re going to and wear the appropriate attire. Make sure you shower before your date, don’t overshare about your personal life, and whatever you do, do not show up late. Here are 10 things you should never do on a first date.
