6 Things You Shouldn't Talk About On A First Date

May 20, 2019

First impressions are everything, so it’s important to make sure you make a positive impact on that first date so it doesn’t end up being your last one.

Popsugar put together a list of things you shouldn’t talk about on a first date: 

Family Issues
Unless the conversation naturally drifts toward you two revealing the deep, dark parts of your family history, it’s best to not dump that emotional burden on your first date.

Your Ex
This is the number one rule you should always follow...never talk about your ex, and also avoid trying to throw them under the bus. The way you talk about an ex says more about you than them!

Longtime Crushes
Why on earth would you go out on a date with someone, just to tell them that you’ve had a crush on someone else for forever?

Bedroom Stuff
Unless you both know that this is a hookup (or leading up to one), it’s best to keep your kinky desires to yourself until you’re more acquainted.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Wanna scare someone off? Casually drop into the conversation that you have an STD. There’s absolutely a time and place to have that very honest conversation...during dinner on a first date isn’t one of them.

Your Future Together
Want to get married? Have kids? Grow old together? That’s great, but it’s also A LOT of pressure to put on someone that you’re going out with for the first time, especially if you’re the type of person who wants all of those things by a certain age.
