We all know not to say “I love you” on the first date. Right? Learn from relationship expert Kathy Dawson the anatomy of “I Love You” on Good Company WKYC TV-3.
Here are 4 things you should never say on a first date:
1. “I’m not quite over my ex.” Who wants to fall for someone who is still attached to someone else and not even trying to hide it? By saying this, you’re basically holding a big red sign that reads, “drama.”
2. “I did the craziest thing last weekend!” Listen, we all do crazy things … drunken, stupid, crazy things, and while there is a chance your date will laugh at your weekend exploits, there’s also a chance he will judge you based on the crazy stories you tell. That’s what people do on first dates – judge! Don’t hand the ammunition right over to him. Read More: Texting Your Way To Love
3. “I want to be married by the beginning of next year, and pregnant by next summer.” Life goals are great, but sharing the timeline you’ve created for yourself in regards to dating, marriage, and children only succeeds in scaring men off, even before you’ve had dessert. When he hears this, he can’t tell if you’re interested in him, or just in a rush to meet your personal deadline and just need a warm body.
4. “This year has been really tough; let me tell you why.” In some way or another, life can be tough on all of us. But, if your hardships and struggles are your first choice of topics of conversation, you’re not sharing your life – you’re sharing your negativity. Nobody wants to date someone who drags them down or seems unstable emotionally.
