    What are things that people do on a first date that just make you get totally put off?

    Got any stories to share?

    Now I haven't been on a date myself (cue violins playing), but I'd say the following would put me off..

    - Being late
    - Texting and ignoring me

    No manners, definitely. Some people treat waiters like shite and on a date, that would be so embarrassing.

    Also, being loud. Like, loud for no reason.

    Ahh that's something we can agree on then! It's rude when someone is texting and you wanna talk to them, sometimes my friends do it but on a date? It's bye Felicia :rofl: (if that's her name)
