First Tinder Dates To Avoid
Your Own Party
Now? It’s an absolutely terrible first date option. Let’s run through a sped-up version of the night:
- Hi, nice to meet you!
- *Buys tickets*
- *Sits in silence next to each other for 2 hours*
- Nice to meet you, bye!
Give her some things to remember about you, not just the movie.
Ice Skating/Rollerblading/Action Sports
First of all, if she can’t skate, you’re in for a long night. Secondly, I would say collectively we could all agree that we don’t want our match to get hurt. Yes, it would be a pretty memorable Tinder date in the back of an ambulance, but that’s not the sort of memorable you should aim for.
Big Deal Like A Wedding/Family Dinner
Anything Overnight – Camping, Getaway Etc
Even if you have the best intentions as well, your date could think you’re being a sleazebag who has strategically planned a date that involves an overnight stay. Stay clear until at least date number 4, preferably longer.
It’s fantastic that you believe so strongly in something, but why does your match have to be completely immersed in that world on day 1? Slow right down, get to know them first and then maybe it’s time to talk the heavy stuff.
Unless your match is on the same religious level as you, then do not invite them to any sort of religious event. Not only could your match feel quite awkward whilst singing hymns, but dude, I’m telling you right now, it’s a little weird…
Stop. Before you suggest something like that, imagine yourself on the very first date sitting outside her favorite store waiting for her. This date is the stuff that people do when they have been together for months or years, don’t push for it now! Getting to know each other rather than the latest deals at forever 21 is probably the way to go.
Also, it’s not very original… You can do better.
You Performing/Competing In Anything
I recently spoke to a female friend who was invited to a comedy club by her date. The joke really was on her, because she had no idea her date was actually the one performing.
Now I’m not making any assumptions about whatever it is that you perform, or how good you are, but this guy sucked… She explained that even if he was much better, it still would have been a fairly awkward date, as she was sat there alone while all of her, and 30 other peoples attention, was on him.
It seems self-obsessive as well.
