First dates are always super nerve wracking. It’s okay to be nervous, it’s normal! But if you want to have hope for a second date, you need these tips for what not to do on a first date. It’s ok to embarrass yourself a little, we’ve all been there, after all.
1. Act like you stalked them on social media.
Even though you 100% did stalk the shit out of them, don’t reveal that you know his mother’s second cousins’ goldfish. That just screams “crazy!”
2. Be on your phone.
A quick text is okay, but don’t be on it for an amount of time where you look uninterested.
3. Talk about yourself the whole time.
Boring af for the other person! You have to ask them questions about themselves… Don’t you want to learn more about them?
4. Get the most expensive thing on the menu.
At least wait until the second date!
5. Get too drunk.
Drinking is a fun time until your date has to hold your hair the first time they meet you! Keep it to one drink, two max. Keep it classy.
6. Talk about your ex.
Your break up trilogy story is not the best first date topic. Seriously, that’s a huge red flag right there. Your date will automatically think you’re not over your ex, even if you are.
7. Order a messy meal.
It will be so hard to look decent with buffalo sauces smeared everywhere. Unless you’re super confident in your abilities to eat neatly, then just don’t
8. Discuss controversial things.
Politics is a no go! Need I say more?
