In a weird way, first dates are kind of like interviews: You’re trying to put your awesome self out there, but your nerves can sometimes get the best of you, resulting in unfortunate word-vomit. It happens. So the next time you have one of the thoughts below (you will…don’t lie), just make sure to keep it to yourself.
“Did you know there are a lot of Scott Thomsons on Google?”Well, I mean, there are. Good thing he isn’t the balding car salesman you saw on page three. Just try not to let on how much you Internet stalked him, even if you did check out his Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook pages.
So who did you vote for?” And do you support Hillary 2016? Because if not, then this is not happening. We get that sharing the same views is important, but come on, it’s a first date. Stay away from touchy topics and keep things light and breezy.
“Wow, this place is really lame.” Even if he takes you to an un-ironic bowling alley, you don’t want bash the poor soul’s plan. Save your complaints for your post-date recap with your best friend.
“What’s your policy on sex on the first date?” Sure, you may be thinking it and he may be thinking it, but this is one thing that’s better left unsaid.
