10 Things Guys Shouldn't Do On A First Date
Sure first dates are nerve wracking at the best of times, but with Valentine's Day fast approaching we dish the dirt on what guys should DEFINITELY not do...
Keep your iPhone on the table & leave Tinder notifications on...
Or being on your phone full stop. Surely your social life can wait an hour or so, after all, we ARE on a date.
Ask you if you want children

Out of all of the conversations to bring up, this is not one of them... Sure I may want a boy first, followed by a girl called Rosie, but that doesn't mean I want to share this info with you.

We get it, your nerves are probably all over the place but avoid getting plastered - we're not on a bar crawl. And how are we meant to get to know the 'real you' after 10 beers?
Turn up late
On a first date, first impressions really count. So arrive on time or early, and if you are running late (for hopefully a good reason), let the other person know.
Forcibly hold your hand
Via Lizi Legge
Physical contact on a first date is a little strange, even more so when it's not asked for #JUSTSAYING
Talk about exes
Unless prompted and okay-d by both parties, this is another topic to not talk about on date numero one.
Bringing the boys as back up
If we don't realise, fair enough, but we're on a date with you - not your squad.
Whether that's to us, fellow people or the waiter, as MAGIC! famously sung 'Why you gotta be so rude?' It's not big, it's certainly not clever and it won't bag you a second date that's for sure...
Talk constantly about themselves
Whilst it's key to keep the conversation flowing, let your date get a word in edgeways.
Checking out other girls
Yes, the blonde in the white bodycon dress looks #FLAWLESS but don't make it obvious. It makes us uncomfortable and you are meant to be on a date with US.
