“You seem nervous.”

As a general courtesy to you and your date, you’re both probably nervous so don’t call them out with this line! It’s the first date and generally being nervous means you care what the person thinks and you want that if you’re potentially going to date someone. Plus, if someone tells you, you seem nervous it will make you more nervous.

“How many dates are you going on this week?”

So you want the tea but don’t ask on the first date. That puts someone on the defensive and a first date does not mean commitment and that everyone else is off limits.

“You look so different in person.”

This is a backhanded compliment! You look good in person but not so much in your pictures. Any picture you look at on social media is generally what the person felt they looked best in so even if you think they do…don’t tell them they look better in person.

“I’m not looking for anything serious.”

So stop talking because now it sounds like you just want to hook up and you don’t even know how to initiate that. It also sounds like a waste of time. Going on dates but not wanting a serious relationship… Why?! Clarify this before the date so it’s not a waste of time.
