7 Things You Should Not Do Before a Date

Most people hope date night turns out perfect or at least expect to have a good time. We all dread making a huge blunder of ourselves ruining it and ending the night early. However, the most frequent mistakes some of us make are before we go on a date.

Here are 7 things you should not do before going out:

1. Cover too much. A turtle neck sweater is not advisable, not even in winter. A fuzzy sweater with a v-neck would be more suitable. Be your date’s eye candy but know where to draw the line. Too much skin can send the wrong message. There’s a difference between classy and slutty. Show some leg, arms and shoulder leaving the rest to imagination.

2. Overdo it with perfume. I know you caught that sale and got the entire gift set of lotion, perfume and body wash. Here’s a tip: Only use body wash and lotion or body wash and perfume – a dab will do ya. Don’t use all 3. You don’t want to seem as if you bathed in perfume for a week. Most men prefer a ladies’ natural clean scent over artificial.

3. Assume he will pay for everything. There are a lot of good guys out there that wouldn’t dare let a lady pay and then there’s……well, the jack in the box. Make sure you bring cash for an emergency to at least cover your own expenses.

4. Wear a bunch of jewelry. Earrings and a necklace is all that is necessary. If you wear too much diamonds and pearls your guy is going to think you are all about the material things and might be turned off.

5. Drink before going out. I know you want to calm your nerves but you really want to be clear headed so you can decide if this guy is worth a second date or not. Also you don’t want to be so tipsy you end up making the wrong decisions about what is going to happen after the date especially when its only your first time going out.

6. Plan on keeping your friends or social media updated every 5 to 10 minutes on how the date is going by text. You can’t see me right now, but I have one eyebrow up. Cellphones should be on only if you have kids other than that no texting and definitely no browsing your newsfeed. How rude.

7. Take a friend with you. For those of you who are shaking your head, I’ve seen it done. Unless you have planned ahead with your date to bring someone else, don’t do it.

These 7 tips will help you avoid an embarrassing situation on your next date and also keep your guy’s interest.
