Having confidence and pride in your abilities is essential to surviving in the dating world. Sometimes though, when we tell a girl certain things, we’re really showing her a deuce seven hand even though we think we’re winning the game with a pair of aces. The following four self absorbed subjects are off limits for first dates.
I.How much you can drink..
When talking with your male friends, brag away about the barrel of beer you pounded in a half hour your first night on campus, but when with a woman, it’s best to bury these things under the table. Here’s why. If you disclose the abnormal amount you drank on one occasion, she could immediately write you off as an alcoholic and wash you out of her dateable database.
II.Your accomplishments at the gym
Yes, it’s quite a physical feat if you can dead lift 500lbs, or curl 100lbs, but what does this add up to when you’re rambling on about this to your latest date? A perception from her that you’re too hung up on yourself to give her the attention that she may want in a future mate. The end product of this equation is her hanging up on you when you call to plan date #2.
III.Your car or other material possessions
There’s a slight minority of women who will be with a guy based on the car he drives. The key word there is minority, as most women decide to date a certain man because of his personality, not his personal possessions. By talking up about your restored late 80s Camaro, or your collection of the original GI Joes, you’re emphasizing your value too much on your valuables, and talking your way out of the chance of a relationship with her.
IV.Skills between the sheets
During a first date, bringing up your bedroom experience is a prime example of the death blow of a date dealt by overdisclosure. Communicating this information will communicate to her that your interest is solely focused on finding yourself between her legs.
If you have a habit of telling too much about yourself, think of your first date as a job interview. When she asks you to talk about yourself, before answering ask yourself, Would I tell this to a potential supervisor? Screening your answers in this manner can secure your success for future dates.
