For some reason first dates make us reminisce of our past relationships…and it’s gross. Here are a few trigger words to avoid on a date (share to save date from flopping):
i. My ex used to do that..
ii. You remind me so much of this guy I used to date
iii. So why did you and your ex break up…
iv. Hold on a sec, my ex just posted a status…
No seriously…we’ve got to do better
Ok…this needs to be said, do NOT talk about marriage and what your future children will look like on the first date. That laugh he’s doing in response to those statements is a nervous one! He’s literally looking for an escape route as you name the hobbies of your future grandchildren!
Yall a first date is not a game of 20 questions! Lol stop interviewing guys when you first meet them! They didn’t bring their resume and cover letter, so relax! Let the conversation flow so you can get to know them without scaring them!
Yall…this is not lifetime. *shakes head* Do NOT share your entire life with a guy that you just met. And if for some reason the Caesar Salad being served reminds you of your commitment issues….then please fight the urge! Lol I’m not saying to hide who you are, I’m just saying save a little for a second date. We all have baggage, but don’t expect him to carry yours on the first date.
So I used to do this all the time! *Kanye shrugs* If I was on a boring date, I would pull out my phone and Tinder swipe at the table! Lol and I know that is horrible, but I couldn’t help it. If you’re on date with guy and there’s no chemistry, but he’s respectful, then at least leave the date before you explore other options. Unless….you see the future love of your life passing by. Because that’s fate, and fate is never rude! #divineintervention hahaha
So I have a friend, let’s call her baby doll, who transforms herself into a bimbo whenever she meets a guy. I literally do not understand what happens! It’s like her inner bimbo can sense testosterone and flips a switch. Her voice gets higher, her cleavage suddenly appears, and worst of all…her I.Q. drops! So this one night, we went on a double blind-date, and her guy was a lowkey genius! He started a conversation about Astronomy, and I’m no Einstein but I know that has to do with stars…baby doll must’ve gotten confused because she started to explain that Athena was her favorite astrological character. *sighs into a face palm* #nogirl You don’t have to dumb yourself down to impress a date. And you don’t want a guy that is attracted to idiots! *snaps in Z formation*
Thou shalt not lie…unless you’re trying to impress a cute date right? Lol awhile back I was out with a guy that was super adventurous and loved outdoorsy things. Now I’m adventurous….but there’s a difference between a real thrill seeker, and I’m gonna be adventurous for this Instagram pic person. Lol I’m the latter. But anyways, we decided to go paddle boarding! He was on the lake all the time….and the opportunity never presented itself for me to share the fact that I couldn’t paddle board, had no balance, and that I’m a weak swimmer. #awkward Lol so we get on the river, and at first it’s fine, until I had to get up. I decided to take a steady approach on the board, so I got on all fours first…and I was stuck on all fours for the entire date! Lol I couldn’t catch my balance and I didn’t want to risk falling in! So there I was…in the middle of a lake…on all fours…trying not to fall in! *face palms! Lol yall don’t lie to your dates!
So I have a friend who loves to snoops, we’ll call her Harriet the Spy. Well, Harriet was on a date and it was going so well! Conversation was flowing and she pulled her phone out to show him an old Instagram post. She must’ve forgotten that she was snooping before she arrived at the date because when she opened the app, it was on his ex-girlfriends page…and ex-girlfriend that she’s never met and he’s never mentioned before! Hahaha If you’re going to stalk a guy before your first date, then cover your tracks!
If you hate all guys because your ex was a horrible person that cheated, then I don’t think you’re ready to date. *sips margarita* You can’t go on a first date with your guard up and expect to click! #girlstop Let your guard down (only a little, people are crazy!) and be nice to this man! Flirt a little! *twirls*
So a new friend of mine was telling me about a first date she had awhile back. The guy was great…but the liquor hit her a little too hard! By the end of the night, she was dancing and dropped her purse in the middle of the floor. Now luckily, he was a gentleman and took her! But it could’ve been a lot worse. So be careful, don’t get “turn down for what” wasted on a first date…you don’t know that man! Lol
