What not to say on a First Date
First dates are often exciting for anyone, most especially for a first timer. It can be really easy to screw up the date by saying or doing the wrong thing. If you want to make them say “aww” instead of “ugh,” here are 5 things you definitely shouldn’t say on a first date:
I had the worst relationship
There’s really no need of you talking about your last relationship when you are already on the verge of what could be your next one. Restrain yourself from dwelling on what went wronged, what they did, or what you did to someone else. This not only makes you look immature and selfish because you’re talking nonstop about you, but also prevents you from enjoying this date.
I still love my ex.
You might think You're being honest, but you’re really saying that you’re not ready for a new relationship. Take enough time to get over your last relationship first before you ask someone else out.
So, want to go back to my place?
This may seem like an innocent question, but it’s only a first date, you know. Asking only implies you want to have sex, which puts your date in an awkward position.
I’ve never told anyone this before…
Keep the conversation light instead of disclosing everything about yourself. It’s a first date, and even if you’ve known this person for a while, it’s never a good idea to tell them such a personal secret. No matter what kind of connection you feel, give your date time to prove how trustworthy they really are.
I really want to get married.
The whole point of dating is to see how compatible you are with someone. You might think it shows you’re someone interested in a committed relationship, but it can scare them off. Again, keep it light!
