Whether you met online or through a friend, a first date can be nerve-wracking, but the last thing you want to do is screw things up. Bustle has a few things that you can do that will guarantee you won't get a second date. So here is what you should definitely avoid.

  • Drinking too much can solidify that this date will be your last with this person because while you thought a shot or two would help your nerves, inebriating yourself is not attractive no matter what the reason.
  • Credit card malfunction which may not necessarily your fault (or maybe you spent too much earlier in the date), but getting your credit card declined can be a real mood-ruiner.
  • Controlling the conversation and bragging about yourself without any end in sight, which is not only a date ruining behavior, it is just plain rude!

A lot can go wrong on a date, but so much can go right as well. Just be yourself, share the conversation and try to get to know your date as much as they are trying to get to know you. You got this!
