7 things that just shouldn’t happen on a first date

22 July 2014, 10:41Bronwyn McKay

Cape Town – We’ve all been through that 'awkward first date' and lets face it, no one has mastered the art of making it through the night without at least one dumb move.

We compiled a list of the 7 absolute worst things that you can do on a first date.

Read and be warned:

1) The wondering eye

Don’t go on a date, just to find another date, on that date.

(Reaction GIFs)

2) Don’t act dumb

If you are going to make a sweet gesture, don’t mess it up.


3) Taking the munchies too far

When you finish your popcorn and your date hasn’t, DO NOT offer to finish it off for them.

4) Talking to a brick

When you’re trying to make conversation, but everything is being shot down. Be as interested as you are interesting.

5) Never talk about the ex

You’ve broken up, it’s over. Move on already! You’re on a date for goodness sake!

6) The friend-zone

The night is going well you think you’ve made a good impression, and then you get a message at the end of the night: "I had so much fun, I love making new friends"

7) Never invite yourself in for coffee

If they want you to come in they will make a move, otherwise back it up and take yourself home!
