During a guy or lady’s first date, whatever impression one leaves with one’s partner is almost certain to last forever. What either of the duo thinks about the other will go a long way in determining how long the ‘relationship’ will last.
There are so many red lights when starting a relationship, whether romantic or platonic, but whichever way the relationship will go is determined by the first date.
Therefore, one has to go the extra mile, just for the sake of the relationship, irrespective of the motive.
For the guys, here are 10 things you should not do when you are having a date with a lady for the very first time:
1. Don’t complain about her family
As a guy, when going on a date for the first time, refrain from complaining about your family. No lady would want to listen to you whining about family issues when you first meet.
2. Don’t ask too many questions
Please guys, don’t badger your date with so many questions. A date should be enjoyed, so don’t irritate the lady.
3. Don’t talk about sex
Talking about sex when you first meet your date can be a turn off for most people. Some ladies would want to get to know you before getting to that stage, even if there has to be anything like that in your relationship.
4. Don’t flirt with her
Guys is very important not to behave as if you are attracted to someone when you are not just for amusement. Don’t lead your date on when you clearly don’t have feelings.
5. Don’t fidget
As a guy fidgeting when you first meet your date sometimes shows that your man enough. Ladies like and appreciate guys who are confident about themselves.
6. Don’t pick your nose
It’s bad manners to pick your nose in public especially in front of a lady.
7. Do not talk about your wealth or earning
Bragging about your wealth or earnings the first time you meet a lady is turn off for most ladies. As a guy it shows how vain you can be and doesn’t show maturity.
8. Don’t let her pay
It is very wrong to allow a lady to pay the bill when you are out on a date with her for the first time. It doesn’t make you as a guy look serious.
9. Don’t ask for her age
When you first meet your date don’t ask for her age. Ladies get very sensitive when they meet a guy for the first time and they are asked their age.
10. Don’t be too quick to post joint picture on social media
No rush, wait for two-three dates.
