Pls i need you guys to read this abeg cos it would help you, if you know what i mean. I am just a very nice person and i want to advice you people so READ AND HELP YAH SEF!!!!!!
Its a first date and you don’t want to ruin it, because most times it determines if other dates would come up. Listed here are 10 things you shouldn’t do on a first date
10. Do Not Take Alcohol
You don’t want to get drunk and get diarrhoeae during your date. That would be a big slap to your face.
9. Don’t wear something inappropriate
Men, don t wear anything that could potentially embarrass your date, like scruffy trainers or an offensive t-shirt. And ladies, this applies to you too. A good rule is: don t wear anything you wouldn t wear to work. Unless you wear a uniform to work. Don t wear a uniform on the first date it s too early for that.
8. Don’t Talk about your ex
Or anyone you ve slept with. Just don t go there under any circumstances. Even if your ex walks into your date venue and the sheer coincidence of it all makes you want to call them over. Even if they choose to sit down next to you and start talking to you and they say your name in front of your date and it s perfectly obvious you know each other. DON T ACKNOWLEDGE THE EX.
7. Don’t interview your date
Please don t ask your date where they see themselves in five years time, or what motivates them. It s supposed to be a date; not an excruciating work appraisal meeting.
6. Don’t over eat
You don’t want to look like a glutton!
5. Don’t come over too keen
Flirting is one thing, but don t wander into I ve never felt this way about anyone before territory on the very first date. Equally, talk of marriage, babies, how all your friends are settling down and you feel left out etc. etc. is off the cards. Stay cool.
4. Don’t come over too aloof
Oh, but it s a fine line we first daters must tread. If you find yourself looking at your watch during the date, or saying, Meh, if you want, when the subject of a second meeting comes up, you re probably playing it too cool.
3. Don’t talk about s*x
The old rules that stipulate you mustn t talk about politics and religion are out, but you should still avoid talking about s*x. This is because it will only serve to remind your date that there have been lovers before them, which rightly or wrongly feels a tiny bit icky on a first date. So no s*x chat.
2. Don’t expect your date to foot the bill
Always, always go Dutch. Let this be the bill that sets the tone for the relationship and let this relationship be an equal one.
1. Dont bring along a friend
No, no, no, no, no!
