Who still needs to get a lousy date story these days? For anyone trying (and failing) to get their head around dating apps or online dating, these constant nightmare scenarios can feel like a sick joke some evil witch is playing on you.
To stop us all from becoming everything we hate (a.k.a. The Date From Hell), let me give some tips on what you should and never do on your first date.

Talk About Your Ex
Like bumholes, everyone's got them. Refrain from blathering about them, though; it makes people feel weird and on edge. If you munch on about how awful your ex was, it screams NOT OVER IT. And if you're bigging them up, it's like get back with them then?
Being Under or Overdressed
It would help if you considered how you look after taking care of punctuality. Your timing may impress your date, but if your attire is inappropriate for the occasion, your date may not be. Some men overdo it when it comes to dressing, going overboard with flashy, trendy items to "Impress" the woman.
Constantly Checking Your Phone
A date aids increased knowledge about the other person through conversation in a most relaxed space. Sadly, many people ruin their first dates by being engrossed with their phones while others expect to connect with them.
Refrain from bringing up marriage or kids.
On a first date, you are unsurewondering if you want to share a dessert, let alone a future. It also makes some people feel like they're rushing the relationship. According to licensed psychologist Kimber Shelton, "If marriage and kids are important to you, there are general questions that can give you an idea of someone's desire or feelings toward having a family, such as, 'Tell me about your family?' or 'What's your family like?'"
