Top 5 First Date Questions Singles in Fort Worth Must Avoid Asking
Whether you’re a dating newbie or a dating pro, you’ve probably heard that there are a few things you should never ask on a first date. Often times, singles in Dallas slip up and ask questions they shouldn’t ask on a first date—questions that should’ve been saved for later—in some cases, way later!
To help you out, our Fort Worth matchmakers here at DFW Singles Dating Service have put together a list of the worst five questions to ask on a first date.
1. Do you believe in God?
As a general rule, several topics are off limits on a first date—religion, sex, politics, abortion, and other ridiculous hyped up things you shouldn’t be asking on a first date. The thing is, people become very emotional when they’re asked about their religious beliefs, especially if they feel very strongly about them. And the other reason is because first dates are all about having fun. You shouldn’t be having a heated debate or getting involved in a conflict over religion—or any other hot topic—on a first date. Keep it lighthearted and fun.
2. Will you marry me?
Wait, what? Does this really happen? It absolutely does. Sometimes when singles haven’t dated in a while and they think they found someone who fits the criteria of their future husband or wife, they ask their date if they will marry them. Some people develop feelings very quickly. Haven’t you heard of people falling in love with their pen pal? Now, we know you probably don’t feel this way about your date, but just in case, never ask anything as ridiculous as this. In fact, even if you think they’re perfect for you, keep it to yourself for now. The last thing you want to do is scare them away.
3. How much money do you make?
Asking about your date’s salary will definitely give out the wrong impression of you and make your date think you only have one thing in mind… $$$. Asking someone what they do for a living is one thing, but asking specifics about how much money they make is just plain nosy. Make sure you never ask your date anything about their financial status. No matter how innocent you are, this question is always better left unasked.
4. Are you still friends with your ex?
Forget about the fact that you’re never supposed to talk about an ex on a first date, because it makes you look like you’re still hung up on them or that you still obsess about the breakup. Asking your date about their ex implies that you might be jealous and territorial. And if there’s one thing we know it’s that people don’t want to date someone who is jealous and possessive. Keep the ex talk off the table on first dates.
5. You don’t have a car?
No one wants to be judged, especially by a complete stranger on a first date. Many people come from different walks of life, and not everyone is compatible with each other—obviously. Being blatantly rude to someone based on your own selfish and materialistic ways is not a good idea. Maybe they don’t have a car because they want to save the environment and take the bus to work every day, or maybe they’re saving for a newer, better car. A question like this will definitely offend your date.
We know that first dates are full of awkwardness, so don’t make them any more awkward by asking the wrong things. Remember to keep things fun and lighthearted on a first date.
