    When you go out for dinner and they don't eat/only get a starter because they're too embarrassed to eat in front of you. Grow up.

    Has that actually happened to you?



    The thing is I've never heard of people being rude to waiters on a date, this is a new thing? :lol:



    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)



    Just name a few though? We're all a bit picky



    Instant dump...

    Really? I had a friend who told me that they didn't like going to a restaurant on a first date because he had enough of girls being so insecure and fake when trying to eat :lol:

    Finding out they don't want the same things in life I do e.g, they want kids and I don't

    They talk about their ex constantly

    They are late (unless it's was outwith their control)

    If they bring themselves down a lot or big themselves up too much

    And the worst for last, if they aren't a cat person :eek:

    Can't remember when I had a date. I think more than 3 years back. Also can't remember when I spoke to a girl last time.

    - No engagement in conversation.

    The worst date is when it's no more a date and more of an examination.

    Where do I begin? Being two-faced (being rude to waiters but nice to you, stuff like that). Not being interested in the conversation. Not putting any effort into looking decent. Blaming your rude behaviour on something that happened to you ("Sorry I'm not usually like this, someone did blahblah to me so I'm in a bad mood.") Not being able to take a damn joke. Being butt-hurt in general, because if you can't handle me on our first date, you won't last a second one. Being rude in general, because if you don't have common courtesy on our first date, you don't deserve a second one.
