As you all know, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and that means love is in the air. Well, maybe not for you… But, here’s some advice just in case you’re considering taking that special someone out on February 14th.

There are many things to avoid on the first date to help you snag your special someone.Things such as getting intoxicated, flirting with the waiter, and talking about past relationships are obvious things to avoid, but we’re going to look at some more.

Other advice for dates:

  • Don’t gripe about your family/their family
  • Don’t comment on their weight
  • Don’t bring up marriage/kids
  • Don’t go on and on about yourself
  • Don’t do drugs/sell drugs (definitely should avoid)
  • Don’t bring a friend (third wheel). IT ONLY MAKES THINGS MORE AWKWARD
  • Don’t overuse cologne/perfume
  • Don’t make paying for the meal an awkward thing
  • Don’t be rude to the waiter
  • Don’t get on your phone too much
  • Don’t bring up controversial topics
  • Don’t mention medication you’re taking
  • Don’t bring them to your friend’s house
  • Don’t make self-deprecating jokes
  • Don’t be late/show up like 73 hours early
