7 Stupid Things Men Should Not Do On Dates
Dating someone new is always a mix of emotions ranging from nervousness, anxiety and sometimes even fear. Things get worse when your date actually does nothing to make things better, and half way through makes you sincerely wish that you were better off at home watching re-runs of FRIENDS. So, guys, if you really want to impress a girl and make her glad to be with you, then here is a list of things men should not do on dates.
Don't Be Engrossed In Your Phone
Somehow, in modern times, this has become the number one "don't" to avoid on dates. When you are with her just keep your phone away and only ever look at it when you get a genuinely important call. It doesn't matter then if you are texting your pal or checking the scores, being engrossed in your phone hints to her that she is not interesting enough for you to hold a conversation with her.
Don't Talk ONLY About Yourself
Don't be a narcissist. You might be a hot and fabulous model or maybe even the world's best surgeon, but you and your job and your life shouldn't be the only topic of discussion on your date. Listen to her as well; let her tell you more about herself too. Keep the balance in the conversation. Nothing puts off a girl faster than a guy who only talks about himself.
Don't Get Too Handsy
This has to be a no brainer. Unless the girl wants it too, don't get all handsy with her; she will write you off as a desperate weirdo if you do. Also, control your tongue with those sexual innuendos. A little bit of flirting is all right, but having something dirty to say after every second sentence is plain creepy. Don't do it!

Don't Give Her Mushy Nicknames
You are on a date with someone you are still in the process of knowing. As such, refer to her only by her first name or a nickname that she is commonly known by. Don't go ahead and give her a nickname of your choice, especially if it is on the lines of baby, honey, sweety, love etc. It is a little too much a little too soon. Understand you guys are only dating, and aren't in a relationship yet.
Don't Check Out Other Chicks
There might be a totally hot girl passing by, probably someone who is hotter than your date. Now I won't say don't look at her; but please don't check her out top to bottom, that too very evidently in front of your date. Imagine how you would feel if she would do the same if a hot guy passes by. Not too good for your confidence, right? So checking out a chick other than your date, on a date, is a complete no-no.
Don't Talk About The Ex
Your ex might be a complete b***h who broke your heart, or a complete angel with whom things just didn't work out. Either way, your ex is not a topic you should discuss when out on a date with someone new. The more you talk of her, the more your date is going to assume you aren't over her; and trust me, no girl wants to date a guy who isn't over his ex and is carrying all that baggage around with him.

Don't Correct And Point Out Her Flaws
When you are in a relationship you can calmly and nicely tell your girl when she makes a mistake or says something wrong, but when you are in the dating phase it's a different ball game altogether. You might be a self proclaimed grammar Nazi, but please refrain from correcting her every mistake, she will not appreciate. Or maybe her hair doesn't look nice the way they are done, shut up about it. Leave all these talks to when she is more comfortable with you and when she is ready for your constructive criticism.
All this talk about the things men should not do on dates is coming from a girl; so it will do you good if you actually pay some heed to it, boys :D
