10 Things You Should Avoid on a First Date

First date drink

BuzzFeed recently asked its readers to share their first-date deal breakers. Here are 10 responses to keep in mind for your future meetups:

  • "Badly treating the service staff/waiters/basically bad manners. 
  • If anyone treats minimum-wage workers like they’re less than humans, it’s a major red flag." 
  • "If someone makes you watch a YouTube video or listen to a song or something on their phone in public without headphones." 
  • "Such a deal breaker for me is talking about the future on a first date! Obviously we all have plans and goals, but for the time being let’s try not to include me in them when I can barely remember your last name!" 
  • "Don't assume that because I'm female I will sip water and nibble salad. Don't judge me for ordering a big burger." 
  • "Being on their phone! As selfish as it may sound, if they can’t give me attention and respect while they’re first trying to learn about me and get to know me, they won’t give me attention and respect down the line when they’ve already gotten used to me." 
  • "When they don’t dress nicely, or wear a T-shirt on a date. Like, try to impress me."
  • "I once went on a date with a guy who called his sister a b**ch. He also made some weird comments about his female coworkers. While he was completely polite to me, the derogatory terms he used for the other women in his life raised some red flags." 
  • "Trying to show off or play it ‘cool.'" 
  • "I went to dinner with this guy once, and he was such a loud talker. He didn't have hearing loss or anything, just practically yelled when we were trying to have a normal conversation. It was so awkward having everyone stare, and I would ask him to talk lower and he would be like, 'WHAT DO YOU MEAN? AM I TOO LOUD?'"
