Top 10 Things Girls Shouldn’t Do On Their First Date (Guy’s Perspective)

First date

First date

I asked my guy friends to come up with 10 things girls shouldn’t do on their first date.  This is what they came up with.

  1. Don’t be late. Show up on time.  Nothing looks worse than arriving late for a 1st date.  At the very least, call/text to let us know you’ll be late.
  2. Don’t discuss ex-boyfriends.  We don’t care and we don’t want to hear it.
  3. Don’t do all the talking.  When you see us nodding our heads without saying a word for 10 minutes, it means we’re bored as shit.
  4. Quit answering your phone and texting during the meal.   Seriously, put that thing on vibrate and take it to the bathroom if you want.
  5. Don’t brag about all of your personal accomplishments.  It makes you look petty and shallow.
  6. Don’t overly complain about the restaurant, meal, my outfit, etc.  It’s best not to look like a complainer right off the bat. Save it for the 2nd date.
  7. Don’t talk shit about all of your girlfriends. If you do enough of that, we’ll basically just think you’re a terrible person that talks shit about everyone around you.
  8. Please don’t complain about being fat or not having the time to get to the gym during the meal.   I understand that you may be looking for some positive male reinforcement to make you feel better about yourself, but honestly, we don’t really care that much. Just a little tidbit, guys never think you are as fat as you and all of your “girlfriends” think you are.
  9. Don’t order the most expensive items on the menu as if you are aware that this is a free meal.
  10. When the check comes, at least make a motion for your purse.  A slight body twitch will work. Anything. This is a big one, as I know many men who will eliminate a woman from consideration if she doesn’t at least motion for her purse. When a woman doesn’t even try to make a move, it says to us, “Wow, this girl could really be a money grubbing, stuck-up biatch”.   If you want to play it right, make a playful offer to split the check.   If the guy is really that big of a douche and accepts your offer to split the check, it’s probably for the best that you pay your share right there on the spot just to get rid of this idiot.

These are my boys top 10. Do you have anymore? Just comment on this entry. Thanks.

    wow, i’ve read alot of your posts and they all seem very honest and insightful.. you have a pretty damn good idea what a man wants in a woman.. and your segment about booty calls was hilarious, but eerily accurate… but as long as girls know what they are getting into, they can make a more responsible decision for what they want…..

    and what happened to your penis size segment? i was looking forward to it!
