It may be easier to find a person you are attracted to, but going on a first date with them is a different kind of a stressor. We all want to impress our potential lover and can make many blunders while trying.
Every time you put yourself out there and expect that your date will pick up what you are putting forward on the table, there is a risk. While it’s a risk worth taking, the nervousness can make you do things you wouldn’t normally do.
Even the best of us fail when meeting new people. These individuals share the don’ts of a first date. If you repeat these first date mistakes, you will not win a second date with them.
One golden rule of dating is not to bring up politics and religion on your first date. The problem is you’re just meeting a new person, and the chances are you will not agree with each other. The easy-breezy date that you expected will get ruined. It’s not that you can never talk about those things. When you feel you are getting to know each other, it’s the right time to test the waters. Ultimately, compatibility is all that matters if you want something long-term with them.
Consent is everything. If your date only wants to chit-chat with you over coffee or dinner, you should respect the decision. Most of us remain in a shroud that we have permanent consent if someone is dating us. It doesn’t work that way. Consent is essential at every point of your engagement. You just wouldn’t want to make your potential partner feel unsafe and get called a creep. Don’t take out your weapons as yet and ask the person what they want from you.
Farts don’t sound like yelling, and your screams will not hide what you just did. Hence, this will never work. You can excuse yourself for a toilet trip and fart there in peace, rather than embarrassing yourself. Farting on every first date can rightly earn you the title of “master of winds.” The comfort of breaking winds comes when you have known each other well and are now ready to pull down all the guards because almost everyone farts, yells, and poops. But it’s not a great idea on your first date, just don’t do it, please.
