It’s your big night – your hot date. You’re likely to be nervous, and for some, this means non-stop chattering. What issues should you guard against mentioning during your time together?
* I think we’re going to be great friends
Unless you discover you have no attraction for your date, uttering this phrase will put you in the friend zone forever. There are people who use online dating services to meet friends, but it’s really not the point.
* I’m still in love with my ex
You may think you are being honest, but the reality is you are posting a giant red flag with a comment like this. Plus, you probably shouldn’t even be dating if this statement is true.
* Do you want to come back to my place
You might not use these exact words, but any kind of heavy sexual come-on is a terrible first date idea. In fact, sex on a first date is a typically a big mistake, if for no other reason, because of its power to affect your decision making skills.
* I hate my job
Keep the negativity to a minimum – no one wants to be around or get to know a pessimistic person. Having a sense of humor about life and positive outlook is what 98% of people rate as a definite must have.
* I did want to tell you a dark secret
This may seem obvious, but you cannot trust someone you just met with really personal information. Give them time to prove their trustworthiness, and keep it light on that first encounter. There is no ‘full disclosure’ rule in effect on a first date. You have the right to withhold almost every unflattering fact until it is established that you like each other and want to pursue things.
