Our resident relationship expert, Kevin Carr, was kind enough to give us a few tips for our dating game. Here’s a look at Kevin’s list of first date mistakes to avoid.
- No job interviews: “Where do you work?” “How much do you make?” “What are your future plans?” No one likes to be interrogated on a first date. Cultivating conversation and listening intently will reveal everything that you need to know about him. Give it time.
- Ditch the attitude: Believe it or not, men are often nervous on first dates too. Smile and be approachable. He is busy trying to make a good first impression with you, so throw him a bone. [Unless, of course, he’s a dog and then he had it coming.]
- Location, location, location: Absolutely no first dates in the living room — yours or his. This sends the wrong message to a man. It tells him that you are entirely too comfortable too soon. If you spend the first date on his couch, where will you spend the second?
