People Break Down Which Questions You Should Never Ask On A First Date

Dating during a pandemic is a little awkward. Some people have tried dating over zoom, other have tried going on dates outdoors.

Though one thing that still remains are topics and questions that should just be avoided on a first date.

Not everyone is comfortable talking about intimate details in their life when they're just starting to get to know someone. Opening up too quickly could set off a red flag.

Redditor koyanggi6563 asked:

"What's something that should never be asked on a first date?"

Let's see what people had to say.

The hard hitting questions.

"On a first date, my date asked me what percent of women I had sex with on first dates."

- nyle2

"Percentage???? Were they a statistician???"

- Designer_Ant8543

"60% of the time it works every time."

- Redditor

"What's your body count?"

- godfatherdoh

"'You mean as my hobby or for my job?'"

- LowFatWaterBottle

"'83 confirmed kills. Why?'"

- Dahns

Financial questions.

"How much money I have."

"Before I was married, I went on a date with a woman who asked me on the first date, how financially comfortable I was."

"We had known each other for a few weeks (mutual friend). I think she asked because she deducted that I lived alone in a house I owned, at age 25, and it probably appeared that I didn't work (was self employed)."

"As soon as she asked, it was obvious why she pushed us to try dating because she saw money."

"She ended up marrying for money, but not mine. It's obvious there's a prenup, because she's miserable, and not leaving him."

- FinestTreesInDa7Seas

"Ask me about my job... we're fine. Specific questions about my salary or savings... I nope out."

- ghost882

A little oversharing.

"I had a girl once talk about how her period was so bad this month it caused her chest to break out in hives. She then wanted to show a diner....full of families and sh*t. I did not ask."

- bybeardandthrone

Probably shouldn't ask this either:

"U on ur period?"

- poopmanpoopmouse

Or this:

"Have been asked my bra size on multiple first dates."

- GreatBigWhore

Very concerning.

"I had a first date ask me my favorite genocide, and then went on to talk about various historical genocides for the rest of the date. I was really creeped out..."

What a weird way of putting it.

"I had a guy ask how far I could run without stopping."

"Why? Are you going to chase after me????"

- Designer_Ant8543

"Probably interested to see if you are physically active or not, but asking it in a strange way."

- btax1

"Yes more than likely. He was an odd duck. He was a federal agent."

- Designer_Ant8543

Moving a little too fast.

"Can I introduce you to my friends as my man?"

"Like chill girl, we don't even know each other..."

- expertvirtuoso

"Where should I put my suitcase till my furniture arrives?"

- SharkForce_12

Hope they knew about her before this came up.

"Is it ok if I bring my wife on our next date?"

- The_rotten_pineapple

Not everyone agrees that it's inappropriate to bring up money, sex life, or exercise routines on the first date.

However, if you find those things important to know before a second date maybe it's best to get it out of the way first.

It's probably best to steer clear of the chloroform questions though.

When you gotta go, you go.

That should be a mantra for getting rid of the toxic people in our lives.

Not every relationship is meant to last forever.

Some people don't know how to be friends.

They are awfully good at pretending though.

Be vigilant of the signs and red flags.

Toxic people are crafty.

And once you're free, never look back.

There's nothing quite like the drama that can arise at a wedding or in the days leading up to it.

But the moment people don't necessarily think about is the moment when the audience can choose to object if they so choose, and surprisingly, some people take advantage of this opportunity. It often doesn't go well.

Financially speaking, most of us could benefit greatly from having extra money each month.

But where someone might assume that the extra money would just be wasted, most people would apply these funds to very practical purposes and expenditures.

When love is on the rocks and there's no salvaging a relationship, it's better for a couple to call it splits.

Sometimes the reason for a breakup is obvious.

Other times, it's more complicated.

But the people involved going their separate ways is better than staying in an unhealthy relationship.
