Nairobi - There are some things to NEVER do on a first date.
Always checking your
It annoys everyone even if they are not on a date with you
because they are trying to have a conversation with you but you are somewhere
It is even ruder when all you are doing is checking all your
social media pages showing that they are more interesting unlike your present
company. You might be attractive but no one wants to spend their free time with
a juvenile. If it is an important call or text you are waiting for let’s say
for a job; ask your company if they would mind if you put your ringer on alert
because you are waiting for something important.
Dominating the whole
Talking about yourself, not bad; talking about your life and
going on and on about it, bad. You need to give room for the other person to
also talk and you also need to give room for a little bit of silence. Too much
and you will end up spacing the other person because you will sound like a
distant noise in their background.
Looking around you but
not at your partner
You are paying attention to other people rather than the
person you are with. No one wants to go on any more dates with someone who is
communicating to them that they are boring. If you wind up not being interested
after the first drink then continue what you are doing but if you really are
interested then try to focus on your partner and the conversation you are
Avoid sex topics
Do not be the first to mention a sex topic, do not bring up
the ex and do not go on and on about the ex. Just let the first date be about
knowing the other person and feeling them out if they would be a god candidate
for a good time. You want to be in a relationship with someone you can have fun
with. Sex can be less than ten minutes, if that is what you are about, you are
signing yourself up for sex partner and nothing more.
