Wanting someone, doing everything to get a first date with that person, getting that date, and wanting to do well at all costs. All this gives a dose of stage fright that can ruin everything. When a person has stage fright, they panic and may say anything and come across as uninteresting, which is often not the case. To avoid this, we present you the 10 topics of conversation to avoid during your first date.
1. TALK ABOUT YOUR EX
Unless asked directly, avoid monologues about your ex. It will only make it look like you haven’t moved on. If the question is asked, be as brief as possible, try to change the subject politely.
2. TALK ABOUT YOUR IDEAL PARTNER
The problem with this topic is that it usually comes across as a must-have list that most people can’t match, even if you think of this list or qualities as cool to have and not obligatory. It can easily turn the other person off.
Never discuss money. Don’t talk about how much you earn. Talking about money may sound boastful. Just don’t do it.
Don’t say how ready you are to have kids or get married. This will scare the person talking to you. This is something you can only talk about after a while.
5. TALKING TOO MUCH ABOUT YOURSELF
6. USE TERMS OF AFFECTION
Even when the date is going incredibly well and you feel like it’s mutual, avoid calling her baby or darling. It’s just too much familiarity and too soon, and some people don’t like it despite good intentions.
7. MAKE JOKES ABOUT HOW BAD YOU ARE AS A COUPLE
Telling someone on a first date that you are a bad partner is like the director coming before the movie to say that he is not that great. It kills all of the other person’s interest or motivation.
8. TALK ABOUT DIVISIVE ISSUES
There’s a reason you shouldn’t discuss politics or religion on a first date: When you have strong opinions or beliefs, it’s very easy to get a little over-excited and monopolize the discussion. . Be careful when discussing these topics and make sure you don’t overwhelm your interviewer.
9. FAMILY HISTORY
You may have had a terrible family education. Perhaps you had an abusive father or an alcoholic mother. Either way, you just have to avoid bringing up these stories on a first date. It might look more like a therapy session.
10. UNNECESSARY MEDICAL HISTORY
No one wants to hear about your colonoscopy on the first, second, third, or fourth appointment. Save your medical history for the future.
