Things You Shouldn’t Do When You Go On Your First Date! Ladies Especially

(This page may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

When it comes to a first date, awkward conversations, bringing up ex-partners and poor chemistry are often listed as deal-breakers.
But according to a survey of singles, there are a number of other unlikely turn-offs that also make the cut.


Dating site Elite Singles surveyed a number of men and women who agree that wearing too much jewellery is one of five 'unexpected first date deal-breakers'.


'Wearing ornate jewellery is considered even more of a fashion faux pas than turning up in active-wear,' they said.

And overdoing it seems to be a recurring trend in  'suggesting a "fancy" first date idea' turns off 88 per cent of singles.


'That means you’re best off finding a top spot for a get-know-you coffee instead of going all out.

Taking photos are also deemed inappropriate for the first date, with both taking pictures of a meal and getting a selfie stick out listed as top deal-breakers.


40 per cent of singles admitted that they would be turned off by someone who was 'too attached' to their phone while one in five men said that mid-date selfies were considered 'worse than being late.'

In a bizarre twist, it was also revealed that more than 70 per cent of the singles would prefer someone talk 'too much' throughout the date rather than someone who listened too much.


70 per cent of people revealed they were turned off by those who lied about smoking, many considering this worse than lying about weight, age and height.

Additionally, 51 per cent of women said that sex was a 'taboo subject' on the first date but just 19 per cent of men agreed.
