Dating Don't #248
Don't discuss all your former relationships on a first date.
Oh my gosh, you're so sweet- Not at all like my ex-boyfriend, Dan. Ugh, Dan was the most jealous boyfriend ever. We went out for three years and he would like call me up if I was five minutes late and would be like, "What's your deal?" And I'd be all, "Nothing. I'm just a few minutes behind." And he'd be like, "Who are you with?" And I was all, "Just with Kristin." And he'd be like, "Are you sure you're not with another dude?" And I was all, "Ugh. Whatever, Dan" You know? I am so glad that we're not together anymore, you know? But that's nothing compared to Billy. OMG, Billy was so into himself I couldn't even handle it. No, literally, I couldn't even handle it for a second. He like wanted to marry me, too. Can you believe that? But I was like, "No way, Billy. You should just like marry yourself. Because you're completely obsessed with yourself." He used like five pounds of product in his hair. His hair was brown and spiked up, though, not like yours. You have pretty hair, though. Have you ever tried Paul Mitchell hair products? It would totally work for you hair. Oh my gosh, that totally reminds me of Brad, this dude that I dated before Billy. He's in prison now....
Instead, ask thoughtful questions to get to know your date and make him or her feel valued.
