4 things NEVER to do on a first date

29 December 2015, 14:44 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - There are some things to NEVER do on a first date.

Always checking your phone

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 else.

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 conversation

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 having.

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.
