7 Things Women Do To Ruin A First Date


We knew the ladies would have a lot to say about the first date don'ts they won't stand for — but we were pretty surprised to hear the things that these 8 guys listed as first date dealbreakers!

Read on to find out what caused them to permanently lose their date's number.

1. Smoking
"If I find out she's a smoker, I'm out of there! I'll just tell her to call me when she quits smoking." -Sasha, 35

"I went on a first date with a nurse. Ten minutes into it, she pulls out a joint and starts smoking (and she's a nurse!). A few minutes later looks me up and down and says, 'Nah, I won't _____ you' (yes, the f-bomb). Wasn't my first date objective anyway." -Louis, 49

2. Tardiness
"Being late. Once in a while it happens, but on a first date when you're trying to make a good impression on someone? It shows her poor planning, and disregard for my schedule." -Darren, 25

3. Not Offering
"Girls who don't at least offer to pay. No decent guy will actually take you up on it, but it's nice to offer anyway." -Armol, 28

4. Staying Glued To Your Cell Phone
"Cell phone use. If she's texting, facebooking, snapchatting or whatever it's a conversation killer, and really just makes the guy feel unappreciated." -Sean, 22

5. Unappealing Footwear
"I picked up a woman on a first date to go to dinner, and she was wearing SNEAKERS! I don't expect you to be dressed to the nines, but unless your first date is to the gym, leave the athletic footwear at home!" -Chris, 32

6. Being Rude To The Wait Staff
"I took a girl out to dinner, and she got into an argument with the waiter for not serving pepsi and it got really nasty. We didn't make it past the entree." -Jason, 25

7. Hating The Unimaginable
"A girl once told me that she HATED The Price Is Right. Not was indifferent towards, not hadn't heard of it, not simply didn't watch it...but HATED it. That is just plainly un-American." -Eric, 34
