The first date is an age old tradition that can either go really well or horribly wrong. Now, in order to get another date with the potential guy a few don’ts are a must to avoid.
Here are a few first date don’ts to stay away from on that first date!
Don’t Over Think It
A lot of women are thinking about that biological time clock, to make it simple just don’t when on a first date. First dates are meant to be enjoyed, not time to plan a marriage and a baby with someone you don’t know much about.
“On the first date, you don’t want to be an “open book.” Save your personal information for later when the foundations of trust and intimacy have been established,” according to Eharmony.com.
If the overall goal is to become a “we” just try and take it one day at a time before jumping the gun.
Don’t Be Surprised If He Google’d You
Social media is everywhere these days and finding out about someone just takes a click of a mouse. If your date brings up something that he has found on Facebook or Twitter that happened years ago that isn’t the most flattering just take it in stride and explain the circumstances before getting defensive.
Most likely you yourself are going to Google your date, because it’s only fair.
“But if you start in on his alma mater, favorite bands and how his hair looked in 2004 (that was found thanks to your mad skills at image searching), you are going to creep him out. Big-time,” according to Glamour.com.
The biggest piece advice to one with information on social media that you don’t want anyone to see is simple– delete it.
Don’t Forget To Dress Up
A good impression is a lasting impression and a lot of the times that starts with the outer appearance. Dressing up for a date show that you are excited to be out and took time to put the effort into it.
“Just because you don’t think he’s the man of your dreams right away doesn’t mean he can’t sweep you off your feet. And when he does, the last thing you want to think is, “Darn, I wish I had worn something a little nicer,” according to DrPhil.com.
