The embryonic stage of your courtship, relationship or whatever you call it when you first start dating is quintessentially the most important time. While you’re excited to have met someone new or actually moving on to a new part of your life, it’s a time where you have to make sure you don’t ruin things by getting too far ahead of yourself. There’s nothing that anyone can do about what goes on in your head about your new dating adventure, but the goal is to keep those things from coming out. Once those thoughts turn into actions, things go awry.
Here are the Things You Should Never Do When You First Start Dating:
1. Poor Manners.
You’re sitting at the table with an attractive date. The conversation is flowing well, and each of you feels intrigued by the other. You’re thinking, “This is a person I would love having in my life.” Then suddenly, one of the following things occur:
He utters a few curse words to punctuate a story he’s sharing.
She picks food from her teeth with her fingers.
He begins dominating the conversation and oversharing.
She takes a cell phone call, responds to a text, beginning a conversation with someone else on her electronic device.
