Girl Talk: First Date Etiquette

Monday, July 28, 2014
We are in the last week of July! That's crazy right? Today, we will be talking about that magical first date. I know must of you are like "seriously , dating is obsolete , we don't do that anymore , we simply post a half naked picture on Instagram , then whoever we attract .. that's who we link up with". 



This post is to help those who are still into relationships and are looking for something more substantial. Here are a few tips to help.

1. Check your Date: If you met the person on Social Media ... do a thorough search. Check for pictures , videos and even Police Records. We live in a veeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry strange and messed up world where people are going around "catfishing" each other. I also recommend going with a friend and having that friend stay close just in case your date turns out to be a total psycho.

2. Less is more: This goes for the way you dress and what you say. As it relates to dressing , I'm not saying you should be scantily clad and have your reproductive organs on display. A 6 inch heel , tight dress/skirt, noisy jewelry might be a bit much. Tone it down a bit and give just a little exposure of skin. Also, a first date is not a therapy session, don't go telling the person every detail of your life.

3. Be Decisive: You have to know what you want ladies ( and gentlemen) If your date is asking what you would like to eat or drink ... please don't say "I don't know" or "It's up to you", you have to know! This already tells the person that if they are to have a serious relationship with you, you will be terrible at making decisions.

4. Don't Have Sex:  Sure Chrissy Teigan slept with John Legend then went on to have a 5 year relationship , and is now married. However "Puss and dog don't have the same luck". There are some guys out there who might think that since she puts out on the first date, she's not looking for anything serious.


5. Eat like a Normal Person: Ladies why must you do this to yourself and the guy? You order a full salad and only eat half of it, then your stomach makes those weird growling sounds all night( did this once and regretted it ..lol) Guys like a girl who actually eats like a normal person. If it is that you are not used to eating with knife and fork, just ask your date to please excuse you as you are not in the mood to do so ... then eat.

First dates are usually weird tricky and completely awkward. After all, you are taking a chance meeting a stranger or a person you know very little about. I'm sure that with these tips , things are sure to go smoother.

  5. Totally agree with your tips! I'd also like to add to give the full name and phone number of your date to your best friend just in case. Also never order spaghetti or pasta el nero or black squid ink pasta.

  7. I love #3! I hate being with someone and being like, "uh, what do you want to do?" -- "Uh, what do you want to do?" Nothing is more of a turn off! I feel like who asked for the date should BE DECISIVE, and have something planned they'd like to share with the other. Show the person you're with who you are, what you like, what makes you tick!!
