First dates are like the covers of the books and don’t hit me with that don’t judge a book by its cover because nobody really wants to go through the entire book on the first date. And so it’s very important to know what to do and what not do especially if you seek to have a second date…
so here’s a few things men should avoid doing on a first date.
Women feel sometimes men burden them with the labor of going through a lot in their life on first dates and it’s not supposed to be. So know it’s the first date and just talk little details about yourself.Be authentic and real. You are asking (and anticipating) honesty and some level of transparency from your date, to which you should offer the same. This does not, however, mean you must share your darkest secrets.
2. Be intelligent
Women generally hate it when men on dates do not know basic things, so if possible, do some digging about your date and get to know her.To be on the safe side, if you don’t know it, don’t assume.
3. No Sex
Men need to understand that not all first dates end in sex and as thus, remove all the thoughts from your head. Every damn thing. It’ll make the date go fine and would lead to the probability of a second date.
4. Avoid being the comedian
A lot of men know women like funny men and as such come prepared to turn everything into laugh fest and this is totally wrong. Forget all the ideas in your head and resist the temptation to make crass and tasteless jokes, and more importantly, prevent your date from the struggle to laugh or blush at your jokes.
5. Avoid weird touches
A lot of women love their space and so they hate it when men touch them discreetly on the first date.“You don’t know her too well and that’s clearly an invasion of space”. So don’t do it.
6. Don’t stare for too long
People in the past have gotten dumped at the first date because they were over staring, either at the ladies boobs or ass or even another lady. So, don’t over stare or don’t stare at all.
7. No phones
No phones at dates, because it’s rude. What this means is forget the world, forget your twitter fam, forget Facebook fam, forget to Instagram that picture? It’s the first date and it won’t kill you if you don’t post it okay? Very good. turn off the technology and live the life..
8. No friends
Men, don’t try it. and women stop bringing your friends to dates, it shows how dependent you are. It’s wrong and won’t allow for communication between both parties, which the date is supposed to do.
9. Reveal your strengths, not your weaknesses.
People want to see what’s good about a potential partner, so make sure you do yourself justice. It’s okay to sell your positives, so long as you don’t seem boastful. Be polite and considerate. Nothing kills a date faster than rudeness. Remember, if you’re expecting your date to conduct themselves in a certain manner, you should exhibit that same behavior in return
10. Do not talk about your ex(es).
It is best not to resurrect the wrongs of your past relationships because you can inadvertently reflect light on possible previous mistakes. Besides, you are looking to move forward, not back.
