The first date is something that we all want to remember throughout our life. But, the fact is that most of us do not know exactly what to do and what not to while our first date so that it is worth remembering.
When you are going on a first date with someone, you are surely nervous because you are not sure about how he or she might turn out to be, and the most important thing is that you are not sure about how may he or she think about you.
So, it is important that you should act perfectly when you are meeting that special one for the very first time. Here are some of the important things that you should actually avoid on your first date.
Never ever talk about your ex
Maybe you have a rough path with your ex, or maybe you loved him or her too much, but this does not mean that you will express your such emotions in front of the person with whom you have gone for your first date. If you are talking about your ex, it brings a thought in the person in front of you that whether you are ready for a new relationship or not. So, if you do not wish to ruin things in one go then avoid talking about your ex on your first date.
Never ever get over drunk
It is always a great idea to avoid alcohol on your first date. But in case you are raising a toast also, then be aware of consuming not more than what you can handle. Getting drunk can always lead you to situations that can become problematic for you later on such as you may end up spending a night with a person who actually is not worth.
Avoid talking about marriage
It is your first date, and you cannot judge a person on the first date or first meeting. The first sight love looks good in movies and books, but in real life, you need to think and reason before you decide something. So, on the first date avoid questions on marriage rather you can ask him or her about family and other things to know more personal details about the person.
Stop advertising yourself
There are many people who love talking about themselves. It is okay to describe your hobbies and your likings, but it is always good to leave the part of knowing about your personality on the person sitting in front of you. You are on a date so that you can know each other well, so do not spoil the situation by advertising yourself too much.
Avoid phone for the moment
It is understandable that nowadays you cannot stay away from your phone. But you are on a date to know a person and decide many things about life. If you are busy in your phone world, then you will not be able to know and judge the person well sitting at the other end of the table. Again the person may also feel that you are not giving him or her attention, so, never ever make this mistake.
Avoid revealing apparel
Looking good is the most important thing that you should take care of while you are on your first date. But looking good does not mean exposing your skin too much. That may actually put a bad impression sometimes on the person opposite to you. Dress elegantly that may suit you.
Do not decide about visiting each other’s place
It is your first date and exposing each and every personal detail can be actually dangerous. You don’t know how the person is, and hence it can be really risky if you are either taking the chance to go to his or her house or taking him or her at your place.
The first date is not about getting intimate
This is your first date, and it is important for you to know and judge the person. Getting intimate on the first date may lead you to such problems from where it may become difficult for you to come out later on.
Don’t fake yourself
Many people in order to impress their partners fake themselves on the first date. But this will actually not work because later on when the actual personality is revealed your partner is left out with no other option apart from dumping you.
Stop being controversial
There can be an endless number of topics to talk about. Do not even try to pick up a topic that is controversial and on which you both do not agree on the same way. This will ultimately lead to a quarrel, spoiling your first date.
