A few months ago, I wrote a blog post about dating tips for men, so I thought it would only be fair to write a follow up post of advice for women. Don’t Talk Politics on the First Date I typically don’t like to talk about controversial topics until at least the 3 date when I’m sure that I really like someone. I went out on a date with this guy who I knew was trouble even before we met. We met for tea because he didn’t drink alcohol and we made small talk about our hobbies and swapped stories about our dogs.
Especially when you are first getting to know someone, give the poor man some slack.
The rationale is that men get nervous and often times aren’t really themselves on the first date.
