Dating can be quite nerve-wracking and exciting, especially if it’s the first date. There are a lot of things to keep in mind if you want to make sure it goes well. Questions linger in your head. Well, I would say that the key thing to dating is being yourself. If the person likes who you are, well then buddy, you’re on the right track. Even though, we end up doing common mistakes that could’ve been avoided.
Here are the common mistakes that people make on the first date:
Well, the last thing you want to be is gross, picking your nose or belching in front of your date. You might feel comfortable with them, but it’s actually grossing them away from you.
2. Make sure you don’t have a bad breath!
Do not eat anything that could make your mouth smell (garlic for instance). Remember there will be a lot of talking, so you should keep that in mind.
3. Ordering messy food
First dates can make you really nervous. You wouldn’t want to add to your troubles by ordering something that could make your side of the table clumsy.
4.Talking about your past relationships
Talking about your exes just shows that you haven’t moved on. Also, it will give your date an idea to how you will treat them in future. A very important mistake!
5.Talking about sex
This is the obvious advice but does not talk about sex to your first date (unless sex is what you’re looking for). If you want to build up a long lasting relationship, sex is not the way to go.
6.Talking about your problems
Your date is looking for a confident personality and talking about your problems just proves that you’re not tackling them well.
7.Going in late
Time is valuable. Make sure you make your date feel that it is important to you as it is for them.
8.Cancelling at the last minute
Your date might be looking up for this day, you don’t want to start on a negative note, do you?
9.Wearing dirty clothes
Though it sounds pretty obvious, people do land up on making this mistake. Wear the best that you’ve, especially if it’s the first date.
10.Making sure that your date reaches home safe
For all the men out there.
After all, she’ll be your responsibility in future.
11.Flirting with others
Make sure you make them feel special and that you’re there for them. Do not insult them!
12.Talking about your date’s exes
There’s a time and place for everything but to talk about your date’s exes on a first date, isn’t. It’ll make them feel uncomfortable.
13.Talking about yourself endlessly
Give them some time to express themselves.
14.Confessing your love on the first date
It is crazy to tell somebody that you love them on the first date. Even if you believe in love at first sight, these are very powerful words that carry a lot of expectations. Such words should only be mentioned when the relationship is official. Please don’t make this mistake.
15.Do not appear too desperate to give compliments
It’s okay to compliment her but to overdo it, is what you should avoid.
16.Do not be shy
Try to get away from that shyness from you. Be yourself and enjoy!!
So that’s pretty much it. Good luck and I hope you have good first fellas if you avoid such common mistakes!
