Everyone Thinks These Unexpected First Date Questions Were Harmless
Examine your dating life carefully. One of the main reasons why a potential date might not be replying to you anymore, or why you’re not getting any further than first dates, is because of how you interact. It’s likely that you may be asking questions that you, first, though were harmless:
1. Do you think I’m good-looking?
Never put your date on the spot with this question. Besides, it’s seems pretty conceited of you to ask. It’s like you’re fishing for compliments, which is a total turn-off.
2. What are your strong and weak points?
Remember that you are on your first date to get to know the person you’re with. You are not on it for a job interview. This is a pretty valid question, but this is too formal. The way you’re constructing your questions sounds like you’re basing everything off of a person’s CV.
3. Who was this guy/girl on your social media?
Never tell your date that you stalked him or her on social media. Even though you did, you have to play it cool. Just don’t mention that you went through all of his or her posts, until 2010. Your date is definitely going to be weirded out because this move seems stalker-like.
