5 First Date Do’s and Don’ts for Men & Women

Dating really isn’t difficult, however most people are not aware of how they sabotage themselves on the first date.

A first date should be treated as such, casual with no expectations.  Do not discuss serious topics like careers, politics, past relationships, or religion.  We assume we need to know this information from minute one so we can decide if we are interested in meeting again.  This is the wrong approach.  Just show up and have fun.  Keep topics of conversation light and carefree.  In reality, the vast majority of “important topics” will not be deal breakers if we genuinely like the person.  It’s amazing how flexible we become for the RIGHT person.

Below is a simple chart of the top things men and women need to do and not do while on the first date.
