There are literally thousands of different topics you can discuss on a first date. And there are just as many that you shouldn’t. Well, you shouldn’t unless you’re trying to piss her off. Although, I’m not sure why you’d want to piss off your date. Anyway, first date conversations should include discussions about future goals, common interests, favorite sports teams, and funny but non-offensive jokes. Topics you should not discuss include…
Never bring up an ex-girlfriend on a first date. It’s okay to talk about ex-girlfriends once you get to know each other. But for now, keep them out of the discussion. By talking about an ex– even if you insult the ex – she might wonder if you still have a thing for her. You want to give your date the impression that you don’t have your mind on any other women.
The exception to this rule is if she asks you about your past relationships. In this case, don’t directly answer the question. Don’t lie about anything. But try to answer it with as little information given as possible. For example, if she asks you when your last relationship was, just tell her how long ago it ended. Don’t mention who it was with or why you broke up.
Religion and Politics
Nothing kills a conversation quite like religion and politics. Chances are you don’t know her beliefs (political or religious) yet. These are the two most sensitive subjects for most people. Nearly everyone is sensitive about their beliefs with both of these topics. Many a date has ended abruptly because one person offended the other one with comments made in regards to his/her religious and/or political beliefs. Keep them out of the conversation at all costs.
How Much You Hate Your Job
First date conversation should be upbeat. This is very important. The goal of the date should be to impress her by convincing her you’re a fun, easy going, happy go-lucky kind of guy. Nothing says, “I hate my life”, quite like crying about your lousy job. It makes you seem like a whiner and a Debbie Downer. I don’t care if your boss makes you work Saturday’s and gets on your case every time you don’t have those TPS Reports completed on time. Complaining about your job is a no-no. In fact, don’t even talk about your job much even if you like it. If you have a great job and you ramble on about it, you’ll come off as arrogant.
