What can turn a potentially good date into a horrible experience?

Nairobi - What can turn a potentially good date into a horrible experience?

When the wife shows up as well

Today I was listening to the radio and these days’ people are not leaving anything to chance. You can now hire a private investigator to check on your spouse especially when they are going around acting like they are single. What can ruin a good date? An angry dramatic spouse showing up to inform you, your potential beau isn’t as single as he or she claims to be. This is good thing because at least you did not waste too much time on them making plans. It is only a con when it is embarrassing and they are irate.

When they let you know you owe them money after the lunch

People are not playing around with their money anymore. Equality has made sure that everybody pays for their share to avoid confusion. Good thing for some people, some people do not like the idea at all. But the worst is when someone takes out and pays for the meal only to inform you how much you owe them to the exact amount even before you leave the venue.

Thinking you know someone and reading them on it

You have just had a conversation; don’t stereotype your date by telling them what you think of them and who they are. Even if you are right and what you want to say is true; keep it to yourself because they will be defensive about it.

Bringing kids, nephews or just your small people

On the initial dates; just don’t bring the kids along unless they invite themselves to the circus while you have the kids. If you are going to meet them, don’t bring kids. They are too honest, too open and forward and now your date has to watch them while you go to the bathroom or take a call.
