Further, there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to get married, get remarried, have children or have children.
However, future marriage plans and reproductive goals are not appropriate first-date conversation topics.
Playful flirting suggests that you are attracted to one another.
Graphic descriptions of sexual scenarios in which you would like to engage immediately after meeting someone suggests that you drive a windowless van without license plates.
You do not want your date feeling as though they are going to be dragged to a jewelry store after knowing you for all of two hours.
And a side note to the gentlemen: Guys, this may seem obvious but **Don't discuss personal finances; either yours or theirs: Talking about the current state of the national or world economy is fine and certainly a timely subject.
**Don't engage in overtly sexual discussion: Playful flirting is fun; it's part of the dating process and it makes us feel good.
Even though this is one of the most common dating questions that I receive, I am instead sharing something far more important...what to talk about on the first date: **Don't discuss wanting to get married or have children: Obviously, if you have previously been married and/or if you have children, this is going to be a topic of discussion.), we discussed what never to do on a first date (with a few additional great suggestions from readers).This month's Dating Faux Pas Prevention continues with another subject of concern to many; what are the two of you going to talk about on that first date?However, discussing personal financial situations should remain off limits.
In fact, I believe that until an exclusive relationship is established, finances should remain private.
