If you've got a hot date this weekend, the relationship website YourTango has a list of five ways you could RUIN it if you're not careful.
#1.) You're Late. Make sure you're on time when you meet up, and don't change plans at the last minute. A date is like a mini-commitment, and if you can't handle THAT, it might mean you can't handle a REAL commitment.
#2.) You're Distracted. If you get caught staring at someone else at dinner, that AUTOMATICALLY makes you a bad date. (--Unless the other person's a fan of the "3-Second Rule".)
--Also, don't check your phone or start texting. It's rude pretty much anytime, but especially when you're on a date.
#3.) You're Depressing. Don't spend too much time talking about your problems or how stressed out you are. It'll bring the mood down, and your date will think you're pessimistic in general.
#4.) You're Lazy. Don't make THEM plan everything. And don't ONLY use text messages to communicate. When you're figuring out where to go, you should actually CALL them and talk about it.
#5.) You're Too Self-Centered. Make sure you don't talk about yourself the whole time. It's definitely important to come across as interesting. But make sure they know you're interested in THEM too.
--You do it by being an "active listener" and asking a lot of questions . . . then asking follow-up questions too. (YourTango)
