#4: The ex. We all have them. If you talk about your past relationships on a first date with someone new and exciting, it will only signal to them that you still have feelings invested in the past and aren’t ready to move forward. If that’s the case, you shouldn’t be on the date—take some time to heal before you put yourself out there again. No one wants to feel irrelevant, which is what will happen if you make this mistake, so show your date that you are focused on him and not on others who came before him.
#5: Sex. Sure it might be on your mind but if you bring up sex you are doing nothing but initiating your own demise. When you talk about your sexual prowess or past conquests, in most cases it will be a huge turn off for your date and you shouldn’t expect to get lucky at the end of the night. Should the two of you hit it off and decide to explore the idea of a serious relationship down the road, there will be plenty of time and better opportunities to cover the subject.
#6: Money. Whatever your situation is, whether you’re rolling in the dough or if the date you’re on is going to overdraw your bank account, do not bring up money. Sure there are some money hungry people out there, but for the most part, the ones interested in you for the right reasons will be unimpressed when you brag about how much your bonus was this month. If they really are interested in you as a match, then they will care less about your bank account and more about your winning personality!
