9 Dumb Things Not to Do on a First Date

Dumb First Date Move #5 – Dinner and a movie
This one won’t completely kill you, but it’s really not ideal. Dinner-and-a-movie dates are very conventional and will remind her of every other first date she’s been on instead of revealing your uniqueness.

Both parts of a dinner-movie night are bad for first dates. First date dinners can be awkward--you can’t touch, and there’s little external source of entertainment. Movies provide almost no opportunity to get to know each other.

Instead, take her somewhere more fun and interactive, like a comedy club or bowling alley. You can talk, touch, have fun, and be entertained. And she’ll probably love you for it.

Dumb First Date Move #6 – Argue about facts or logic
It’s okay to disagree with her. In fact, it’s good to do so a couple times, to show her that you’re your own man and not hung up on someone’s approval. But this is best done over subjective topics, where there is no right answer. She says he likes oranges; I say oranges are disgusting and apples are the bomb. And keep it playful.

What you don’t want to do is argue about whether global warming is real, or who invented the telescope. Even if you know she’s wrong, even if you can prove she’s wrong by browsing your phone, even if it’s completely common sense, let it go. If you see her again and develop something with her, there will be plenty of time to show her the truth later.
