We’ve all seen cringe-worthy movies where people amusingly mess up their dates, and some of us will have been there, done that ourselves. We’ve put together a list of things you should never say on your first date…or second, or third, or fourth…

Bad Date

They may make you smile, but the key thing to remember is to not be too extreme. Unless you’ve spoken extensively about your dual love for politics or religion, don’t even think about venturing there. As for bringing up exes or talking about your sex life, just don’t do it. And even if you are a little cuckoo, they don’t need to know that yet!
