This is the last installment in the dating series, unless I do polls on Instagram.
I repeat again I am not a dating expert, but find these questions are very good to be asked on a first date.

And I did a podcast episode on this topic, in my humoursome way.
So let’s get into the questions not to be asked on a first date.
DON’T ASK ABOUT THE PARENTS
I think with this question, it might be good to ask about parents at a later date. The focus of the date should be with the person you’re on a date with. Not anything else. Especially if you don’t really know the person you’re on a date with the relationship status with their parents, or they have lost parents or be adopted. Putting a not so good flowing vibe on conversations after this question has been ask. Unless they have spoken about their parents previously.
Well we all know politics is not the best subject in normal time. And even worse going through a pandemic. Unless it is a good story to tell, maybe avoid political talk. Unless you both have political minds, no political talk on a first date, just my advice.
DON’T PLAY THE NUMBERS GAME
In other words, don’t play the nosey game, trying to figure out the number of past relationships. Unless the person you’re on a date wants to disclose that information. But don’t guess numbers in your head, what has happened in the past, stays in the past. And whether they are still on dating sites and how many matches are they messaging on the app right now.
NEVER BRING UP THE EX
Even though you might be curious about the EX and what happened in the relationship for it to end. It might not be a good thing to ask about the EX on the first date. Just enjoy starting to get to know about each other. Ask at your own risk. The previous relationship is most likely to of ended on bad terms and was not a good breakup. Bringing up unwanted feeling to the date. EXs can be spoken about at a later date.
Avoid bringing or being negative on a first date. Their is so much sad news in the world right now. But being on the date is not supposed to be a sad or bad experience. Bear this in mind when it comes to talking about certain topics.
AVOID USING THESE WORDS
Yes, avoid using these words in conversations –
Try to be more direct with your answers, and try to use as much words as you can. It will help to keep the conversations flowing. Using the three words about may come off that you’re not fully invested in the date. And interested in the conversations to give full answers.
