Top 5 Things You Should Never Say on a First Date

{Thanks Jess at City Girls World!!}

Here are 5 things we at CityGirlsWorld do NOT want to hear on a first date. You may scoff while reading these lines. You may laugh. You may roll your eyes. But count yourself lucky because these are all true stories of why dating is not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach….

1. Can I use your bathroom?

Please don’t make up strange excuses to invite yourself into my home. If you’re welcome, you’ll be invited. And since it’s a first date, you’re probably NOT invited (unless I’m drunk but that invokes an entirely different set of rules).

2. How do you think this is going?

Can’t we just evaluate this date based on laughs, smiles, and witty banter? You know what I find really sexy and attractive? Confidence. If you don’t have it, fake it. A confident person doesn’t ask how it’s going. They know.

3.  This is definitely just a cold sore. Not herpes. I think.

Thanks for sharing! As a general rule, I prefer not to know too much about your bodily functions (please don’t make me list more examples) on our first date. If there is something gross on your mouth, either reschedule or find some liquid foundation. It’s not that women are vain shallow bitches. But perhaps you’ve heard —you only get one shot at a first impression.

4. Can I kiss you?

Please re-read points 2 and 3. If you want to kiss me, test me out by touching my arm or brushing my hand. If I reciprocate, you probably have the green light. If I pull back, you probably don’t. And if you DO decide to go for it? Lean in without hesitation and show me how its done. We have a word for that. It’s called “Throw Down” (please refer to every romance novel in stock at K-Mart) and we want more of it.

5. I collect… (insert something odd)

Some collections are ok –for example watches, cars, and houses. But otherwise, collections are a very iffy topic for a first date. Wait until I’ve learned that you’re a normal, handsome, witty guy before you confide in me about the miniature Dungeons and Dragons empire you’ve built in your basement. If I’m in love with you, I might just find it cute.
