We all get nervous on first dates; it's a natural part of the dating process.

If your relationship is strong enough, it will breeze right past the small stuff, but sometimes even the strongest relationships will find themselves at a point of no return.
Those tell-tale signs that your relationship is taking a turn for the worse, that for some reason you haven't seemed to notice?
