Straight from the Men’s Magazines, we discovered sixteen mistakes that you could make on the first date that are absolute no’s.

First dates are tough. Not only are you meeting a stranger but you have to carry a conversation, do everything right, and try to leave a good impression in hopes of securing a second date. You don’t want to come on too strong or even worse, look desperate. As a result of all the stress going on a first date causes some people, a new survey by activity-planning site Vimbly identified the top turnoffs for women on first dates.

  • Keep your hands to yourself
  • Speak up
  • Don’t be cheap
  • Don’t be uptight about splitting the bill
  • Make it a two-way conversation
  • Handle your liquor
  • Ditch the heavy talk
  • Don’t drop the F-bombs
  • Leave your Rolodex¬†at home
  • Be a gentleman
  • Curb your (excess) enthusiasm
  • Go for non-offensive jokes
  • Skip the money talk
  • Resist bringing your resume
  • Don’t be a schlub
  • Offer a polite compliment

Do all of those things and we’d say it’s pretty hard not to get a second date!
