1. Don’t Talk About Your Ex
Nobody wants to hear that shit.
2. Don’t Talk About Money
Never brag about having money or complain about not having money. Your finances are your business and your business only. Never ask someone how much money they make, how much rent they pay, or much credit card debt they have. Never complain about the price of a bill or about how you don’t have money to go on vacations, etc. If you are majorly in debt, seek counsel from people you find sexually irrelevant and work your ass off to pay that debt down immediately! But never talk about money on a date. People who talk about money suck.
3. Don’t Talk About Your Medical Issues
Nobody needs to know about your high cholesterol, your suspicious moles, your overactive bladder or anything else that is wrong with you. Even if you have a condition that may impact your future with this person, there is no point in bringing it up until you actually HAVE A FUTURE together.
4. Don’t Talk About Your Job
Unless you really love your job. Complaining about your job is a major turnoff. Find something you love about your life and talk about that instead. Keep the conversation sexy by talking about future travel plans, a creative project you’re working on, or a show or cultural event you want to attend.
5. Don’t Talk Shit About Anyone
Gossip is immature and unattractive. If you don’t have anything nice to say, keep your damn mouth shut. Cultivate positivity and generosity. Be nice to waiters, bartenders, cab drivers and bums. And if you’re the one paying, tip generously.
