Eight signs your date is not going well


We’ve all been there – when you’ve got your hopes sky high about a hot date only to have them dashed by the end of the evening. How did we get it so wrong?! Here are ten signs that your date is not the Prince Charming you expected.

He’s late
Great! Now you get to sit in the pub or restaurant by yourself, worrying about whether or not he’s going to turn up at all!

He doesn’t offer to buy you a drink
It’s just good manners to offer to buy your date a drink, whether you’re a guy or a girl. If he doesn’t? He’s not worth holding on to.

Something insignificant drives you MAD
His shoes are dirty, his belt is too tight, his shirt is buttoned up too far, the way he laughs, the way he eats, the way he slurps his pint. These are all totally insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but if something like this is already grating on your nerves, how are you going to cope when he does something that’s ACTUALLY annoying?

He talks about his ex-girlfriend
Exes are NOT first date conversation starters. No. Not ever.

The conversation is totes awkward
He could be the loveliest man in the world, but you just have nothing to say to one another. Such a tragedy.

You’re weirded out by him
He seemed TOTALLY normal at 2am last Friday night, but now? He gives you the creeps. Mark it down to experience.

He’s constantly texting
Talk about rude! Is he texting the date he has lined up for tomorrow, or is it his mammy? Either way, it’s not on.

It’s all me, me, me
If all he’s doing is talking about himself, then you can be fairly sure he won’t make a lovely, attentive boyfriend. Next please.
