Many of us have had our share of dating and know what we do and don't like. However those likes and dislikes are different for everyone. Some people love that you blow your nose into your napkin at dinner and let's just say, other's would prefer that you don't. Knowing what to and what not to do on a date may be helpful to some. Nobody has all the answers, but every once in a while some advice can help your dating/love life.
What would you rather not see on a date or what annoys you on a date? Most of the time the things that you can't stand are the ones that you need to make sure that you are not doing on a date. There is and can be a long list of things that people should or should not do on a date. Having your cellphone out on a date if you're having dinner or appetizers somewhere, can come off very rude and uninterested.
To most people, men and women, having your phone out sends a nonverbal message that you care more about what is on your phone screen rather than the lovely person in front of you. Put the electronics away! Seriously, if you can't go without your phone for an hour or so, we need to have an intervention. With your phone in your face, how are you supposed to get to know the person, who could possibly be "the one", at all? Oh that's right you won't, so put it down. Other things that could or maybe distracting to yourself on a date, should be put away or left at home. Give your date the attention they deserve.
Everybody loves posting pictures of what they are doing, or posting statuses to let people know how they are being active. However this should be limited when you are just getting to know the person. You maybe very interested in this person that you have been on one date with. The second time that you both go out, you decide to take pictures with your date. Make sure that they are okay with this. No one wants to embarrass the other and say don't take a picture of me. That basically says I don't want to be associated with you quite yet. So to avoid anybody feeling embarrassed or uncomfortable, ask them to get mutual consent, this will show respect to the other person.
There are also other things that should not be discussed or done on a first date or when getting to know someone, that were not mentioned, but basically use common sense when getting to know someone. If you don't want to hear or see something from someone else, do not do it yourself. As always comment, share, and let us know what you'd like to hear next!
