Getting to know someone on a first date is fun.

Anything is possible and exciting when the individuals involved are starting off with a clean slate and asking each other fun questions.

The usual suspects often include specifics not listed on a profile, like "what's your favorite movie?", "what's your go-to dish?", and "have you ever been convicted of a federal crime?"

Wait, what?

Yes, there are some inquiries that are better left asking on a second date if there is one.

Curious to hear from strangers on their opinion about proper dating etiquette Redditor Hazefromda6 asked:

"What is the worst question to ask on a first date?"

Redditors took an opportunity to go wild with their suggestions.

Many of these amateur comedians contributed their raunchiest one-liners, but with so many single people out there looking to make a connection, I wouldn't put it past them to ask some mind-boggling first-date questions due to their lack complete self-awareness.

There's a reason why certain individuals are still single.

With their lack of social graces, they're just not ready to mingle.

But hey, there's someone for everyone, right?

People Break Down What Absolutely Ruins A Good Burger For Them

Most people love a good burger, and many, many American restaurants serve them, but not all burgers are created equal.

Super tall burgers that are hard to eat, way too much sauce (or only a tiny bit of sauce on the middle of the bun), soggy lettuce — there are lots of ways to ruin a burger.

We've all had experiences which left us sad or despondent.

A friend moving away, the loss of a pet, missing out on a promotion.

While these experiences often result in our feeling the need to drown out our feelings in some capacity, we know deep down that we'll eventually bounce back.

Some experiences, however, take a bit longer to recover from, if we manage to recover from them at all.

The sort of experiences which, for lack of a better term, break us.

Flirting is always a delicate balance.

While an obvious way to get someone's attention, and let them know they find them attractive and (hopefully), are interested in dating them, it's not always appreciated.

As some people find flirting to be little more than thinly veiled sexual harassment, particularly when intentions are less than honorable.

While some people flirt with colleagues for little more than harmless fun, others take flirting in the workspace much more seriously.

Whether they're the ones doing the flirting, or the ones being flirted to.

We want to believe the world is a good place, and it can be. However, there are still those who seek to deceive us.

They prey on the innocent and naïve and run scams that take advantage of us and our assets.

Some of these scams are as old as time itself, and most people have wised up. They can recognize the tricks and protect themselves. However, every now and then, someone still falls for one of those stupid scams.

Redditors identified some of these scams and are ready to share.
