In this day and age, dating has become more difficult than ever, well with all the games that people play and the stipulations for the potentialities of the dates themselves. Some people are hopeful while others bear all on chance, luck and booze. But if you ask me, no matter how dry your well is or how hot your crotch may be, there should still be some limitations on what should and shouldn’t be considered acceptable “dating” behavior, especially when referring to the dreaded first date.
Today we are not going to focus on all the right things that should take place during a first date. It’s too mushy and not as much as fun as pin-pointing all the wrong and bad sh!t that can and more often than not goes wrong. We’ve discussed first date rules before, however during my course of eavesdropping on conversations at a few dine-in establishments over the last few weeks, I’ve concluded that a ball park figure of about five gazillion daters need to be reminded of what not to do on a first date. I understand that there may be some that asks who am I say? Quite frankly, responding in my best Rick James voice, “I’m Hottywood, bitch!”
Rule #1: Don’t show up for a first date showing too much. I’m not going to spend too much time focusing on this because I’m sure all you bright citizens (and illegal aliens – the rules of dating apply to all who ultimately wants to get laid one day or one way or another) know what the hell I mean.
Ladies, don’t show too much cleavage (that includes back cleavage), legs (especially if your date is the size of Professor Clump, because he may mistake them for drum sticks and may possibly try to eat you using a pitch fork, a butter knife and the nearest bottle of hot sauce), forehead zits (for obvious reasons) or wear too much makeup (think Ronald McDonald or the creepy little puppet from all the Saw movies. Your bad makeup job will be the first thing your date sees and the last thing they remember, causing you to be the punch line of all their jokes as they tell their friends what a disaster you were your date was). Doing any of these things will change your date’s perspective of you, causing him/her to think you’re cheap, horny, greasy, a piece of meat or an extra in a rural area carnival side show. Don’t get me wrong, ladies. By all means, please tease! You want to give your date something to look forward to. Just be careful not to serve it all on a platter before time of the main course. Everyone knows all things don’t taste as good as they smell.
Fellas, don’t show too much chest hair (old school pimp status), man boobs (no chick wants a man who has to buy and wear more bras than she does), ding ding prints (proves that your pants are too tight and may result in your Johnson not working right and causes your manhood to stink like rotten ketchup), belly button rings, tongue piercings or toe rings (are all gay and looks stupid on a man and if you wear them you should have a drink thrown in your face and never be allowed to date again).
Rule #2: Lose the cell phone for a while. It’s not a good look to give the illusion that you are more important than you are, especially when the person you’re breaking bread with doesn’t know enough about you to care. It makes you look like you’re eager to show that you have friends or overly proud that you just bought a new cell phone. It’s also rude and indicates that the person you’re communicating with over the phone warrants your attention more than the person you’re communicating with over the table. If that’s the case then you made the date with the wrong person and you need to take your ass back home and try again and hope like hell they don’t do the same thing to you. Also cell phone frequencies slowly causes cancer and makes your appetizer course taste funny.
Rule #3: Tongue kissing on a first date is a no-no! Let’s be honest, nobody knows where the hell your lips have been, much less your tongue. Halitosis may be an issue. Gum disease could be a problem. You wouldn’t get punched in the teeth for forgetting your dentures, obviously but you could still get decked some place else unless you forget your false stomach or your silicone forehead. Try a kiss on a cheek (the face, not the ass). It’s safer. You even want to be careful kissing someone on their hand because if no one ever told you, people do some strange things with their hands.
Rule #4: Don’t reveal too much personal information. Under any circumstances do you ever want to reveal too much about yourself too soon. Very rarely do you get a second chance to make a first impression. Do not bring up your money problems because they imply that you are either cheap, broke, a closeted bank robber or an excessive gambler. Don’t talk about any past relationships because it will lead your date down a path of searching for reasons [through your words and actions during the remaining moments of your get-together] of why your ass is single now. Don’t talk about your sex life. That’s an instant buzz kill simply because there are so many red flags attached. For example, when you talk about your past love life, you look horny, desperate, prostitutish, and often times not hot enough for anyone to believe that you’ve gotten the ass you’re boasting about. If you must bore your potential companion with a serious case of TMI, make sure it isn’t until the liquor bottle is half empty, that way you can blame your diarrhea of the mouth on the booze and your date will more likely appreciate being drunk so they don’t have to comprehend what you’re actually saying.
Rule #5: Last but not least, don’t spend any time blatantly advertising how attractive you are. Let your date do that, otherwise you might as well strap a full length body mirror to the vacant seat at your dinner table. Truth be told, anyone who thinks that much of their self isn’t worth thinking much about.
