First-Date Deal Breakers

by Sabrina Cohen

The deal breaker threshold is different for everyone. We recently polled a group of single ladies and shared their first-date deal breakers below. Consider them before heading out on your next first MeetMoi encounter, and stay tuned for the male version!

OH MY MAMMA’S BOY Good men love their mammas. Mentioning her incessantly, particularly on a first date, is a turnoff. Women equate the way a guy treats his mother to the way he’ll treat them, so respect is great. Unhealthy attachment is just plain unattractive.

TMI We’d all love to speed up the process of getting to know each other, but sharing every detail of your last heartbreak, your childhood traumas, or anything sexual on a first date is just NOT sexy. Be open and honest, but save a little something for future dates.

THE PANTING DOG We women love to be flattered… in moderation. Eyeing us like a piece of prime rib you’d like to devour is a different story. Be careful not to cross the line from complimentary to Creepsterville. Once you arrive, there’s no turning back!

GOING DUTCH While many dating rules have changed over time, it seems that this old school rule is here to stay. Most women are sympathetic to men when it comes to splitting the bill in the long term. On a first date, however, there’s just no way around this one. If you take a woman to dinner, plan to pay. Sorry fellas.

Have you ever been convicted of one of these dating death sentences? Share your thoughts below.
