Ten Things Not to Say on a First Date
In what seems to be a world where meeting women is becoming a real serious business, sometimes I think a little bit of humor needs to be thrown into the mix. This article is for enjoyment purpose only and should not be taken as stuff that has happened in real life. It would just be funny if it did…
10. “Gotta be back earlyish as my mom is tucking me in.”
Girls are really attracted to guys who are confident and independent. Saying things like this will only make you sound like you’re a bit of a mummy’s boy. Not the biggest turn on for her.
9. “Oops… I seem to have left my wallet in my other jeans.”
They might not admit it, but the girl you’re with will automatically think that you did this on purpose and will assume that you’re a cheapskate. Especially if you’ve decided to go to a fancy restaurant. How convenient …
8. “I really feel that I’ve grown as a person in the past few years. Used to be, I wouldn’t have given someone like you a second look.”
It’s good to hear you have grown and made changes in your life. It’s not good to hear that you’re only considering her because you have ‘lowered your standards.’ Instead, focus on what about her attracted you to her in the first place. Maybe she has a nice personality?
7. “What are you drinking? I’m having a gin and tonic.”
What’s with the camp drink? Not all women will openly say this, but they love a ‘man’s man.’ Ordering what is considered a ‘ladies drink’ can get her a bit suspicious about you and your sexuality.
6. “My hero is Hitler, how about you?”
Only do this if she has blonde hair and blue eyes. NOT REALLY!!! What are you thinking!? She’s only going to think that you’re some kind of psycho. Nothing turns a girl off faster than the creepiness factor.
5. “I’m going to spoil you rotten, which one you fancy McDonalds or KFC?”
Though this could work if delivered right, more than likely she’ll think you have no taste. At least try to show her you have a bit of class and want something better than fried chicken in a bucket.
4. “You seem nice. In the same way my mom is.”
If she’s really into you, she would want you to picture her as ‘girlfriend’ material, not imagining her as a second mom to you! How awkward would that be for her if she ends up back at your place. Would you want to think of her as your mom then?
3. “Hang on, just going to request they play ‘Uptown Girl.’ Billy Joel is my idol.”
Nothing wrong with a bit of self-deprecating humor, but if you’re serious, let’s hope she agrees with your music taste. There are a lot of songs out there that both girls and guys will find too embarrassing to listen to (well, at least in public anyway). Keep your ABBA collection a secret for her to discover at a later time.
2. “I’ll miss you, until I go out and buy some porn.”
Not the most brilliant thing to say to say to a girl. Two things can happen here: Firstly, she’s going to think that you don’t find her attractive enough to escalate into something physical (or that you have no balls). Secondly, she’s going to think you’re some shallow jerk who is just obsessed with looks. The only way you escape this particular hole is if she likes porn herself. There are girls that do, but don’t bank on it.
1. “My ex loved it when we went for an Indian on our first date.”
It’s bad enough bringing your ex up on the first date out of the blue. But to make it sound like you preferred the first date with her is not good. Not good at all…
There you have it. 10 things not to say to a girl on a first date. Not that you would be foolish enough to say one of these. Well, hopefully not.
