Relationship Advice – First Date Mistakes Many Men Make

Couple Holding HandsYou’ve just met an incredible woman and you have your first date scheduled. This is your opportunity to either impress her or repel her. Obviously, you want to accomplish the first one – impress her. But be careful… there are some things that are a no-no on a first date and will more than likely ensure there isn’t a second one.

Mistake No. 1 – Alcohol. You might be an occasional drinker, a social drinker or even a raging alcoholic, but does she really need to immediately see that part of you? If you can’t seem to make it through one date without booze, then you might need to put the relationship on hold while you check yourself into a treatment center.

For social drinkers, ask her in passing if she drinks. Chances are she does like an occasional drink in the right setting. If she does, then plan that down the road. But the same warning goes for your date. If she jumps in the car and asks you to stop by the liquor store before the date begins, it doesn’t bode well for the evening.

Mistake No. 2 – Introducing friends. Friends are great. But like alcohol, they are a part of your life that should be introduced at the right time. Let the first date be a time where the two of you find out if you even have anything in common. Get to know one another and then trickle the friends in later.

Mistake No. 3 – Going overboard. Your first date needs to be casual and laid back so you can focus on her, and likewise. Filling the evening with extravagant entertainment and one dramatic display after another might make time pass quickly, but it doesn’t allow you the opportunity to see if you even have anything in common. Besides, if you do all of the flamboyance on date number one, date number two is going to be REALLY boring.

Mistake No. 4 – Talking about marriage and babies. You might as well hang a sign around your neck saying you have a contagious disease. This is a sure way to stop a relationship before it ever has a chance. Marriage and children are great topics – at the right time. Which, in a new relationship means a long ways off.

Mistake No. 5 – Baggage. Recounting lost relationships is disastrous. The only time you should be dealing with baggage is if you are boarding a plane. Bringing it up on a first date makes you look desperate. Women run from desperate.
