On your first date, you don’t want to get into an in-depth conversation about why you don’t enjoy your job, or other issues you’ve been having. Yes you do have to be serious sometimes, but in the early stages of dating, have some fun! Avoid the ‘ex’ conversation Talking about your ex is dangerous territory.

If you’re a little shy, practice beforehand by talking to people you don’t know.
