How to Avoid Common First Date Disasters


We all hate them, but we all have to go on them. No, I’m not talking about antibiotics, though they sure can do a number on your stomach. Nope, I’m talking about first dates.

No doubt you have a list of first date horror stories. You know, when you show up and the person looks NOTHING like their photo, or after the first 5 minutes of pleasantries you find you have NOTHING to talk about.

First dates can be great, but only if you know how to avoid the most common first date disasters.

Be Normal

There’s the normal version of you and then the version that you show to your best guy friends. Maybe you’re the one in your group that can burp Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody or make his stomach look like it’s singing. And while your buds may love your talents, your potential love interest will most likely find you very weird.

Be yourself, just not your FULL self. Stick to normal for date one and introduce her to your belching and other talents later.

Don’t Be Late

What’s the best way to start off on the wrong foot and give someone a bad first impression of you? Show up late. Showing up late tells the other person they don’t matter. If that’s your initial message, why on Earth would your date want to give you their time or attention?

Dress the Part

Don’t show up looking like a bum. Now you don’t have to show up in a suit if you are meeting at a casual Mexican restaurant, but you should care about your appearance. Shower – put some clean clothes on – make an effort. In other words, look your absolute best.

Stay Off Your Phone

Do not spend the entire first date texting other people or checking sports scores. Unless you are absolutely expecting an important work text or call, turn your phone off and keep it out of sight.

Don’t Talk About Your Ex

“My wife was a piece of work. She stopped shaving her legs years ago and was often just bitchy.”

That is not a great opening line. If that is your opening line, it will also be your closing line.

Keep all talk of your exes out of the conversation.


Chances are before your first date you and your potential new romance have emailed or texted back and forth and you’ve gotten to know a little bit about her: what she likes, does as a hobby, TV shows she watches, etc. Treat your date, which could lead to something awesome, as you would an important job interview and do some research.

If she LOVES a band or a TV show you don’t really know, check it out. Is she into throwing pottery? Learn a bit about it. By learning more about what she likes, you are already sending signals that you are caring and she is important to you. Plus, the conversation will be easy!

If you follow these tips, you’ll be able to show up to your date and be fun, attentive and someone she’ll want to get to know better. This will of course lead to a second date and potentially more, and then… who knows?
