You are about to have a first date with this guy you have been digging for awhile now, and boy are you nervous! And it's totally understandable. First dates can be absolutely nerve-wracking because you are afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing and looking ridiculous. Drinking on a first date can increase your chances of doing or saying something stupid. Here are three reasons why you should not drink on a first date.
You could bring up your ex-boyfriend
When you are drinking alcohol, it is not out of the ordinary to start talking about an ex-boyfriend. Bringing up your ex on a first date is a definite mood killer and will have the guy you are with thinking, 'Why me?' When you start babbling on about how much you miss your ex or what a great guy he is, your date will just want to leave.
You could start cussing a lot
Drinking alcohol can make you cuss a lot more than you usually do. Once you've had a couple of mixed drinks, there is no telling what kind of naughty words you might say on your date. Believe it or not, guys really don't like it when a woman cusses too much. They think it makes her sound very trashy.
You could end up hooking up too soon
If you have had too many drinks, you are more likely to do something you regret on a first date like hooking up too soon. Alcohol lowers you inhibitions, making you do things that you wouldn't normally do sober. You could end up spending the night with the guy on the first date and ruin any chances of having a relationship with him in the future.
The bottom line is, don't drink on a first date. It is just not a good idea. You want to make a good impression on a first date and drinking alcohol will not help you do that.
