So have a date shortly, met on tinder and been chatting lots since Saturday (figured it's best to meet fast before you get emotionally attached) so far we get on great similar sense of humour he has be doubled over laughing so all sounding positive.

Haven't been on date for ages, what tips, advise have you got and also what's the red flags I should know?

Also what type of things should be spoken about on first date and what shouldn't, I don't want to bring up the wrong things... But if they do should you just go with it?

Be yourself. I think not talking about Ex's is always great on both sides is greatsmile

I guess, someone who listens to you, is interested in you at the same time shares but does not talk non stop about themselves is also positive.

Have a lovely time and remember to report back.

Argh, found this thread too late. I think you still owe us an update, although we'll forgive you for not making it one from the loo.

UPDATE!!!! not from the loo but back home tucked up with a cuppa

Ok so it went well, we got on and we laughed a lot, we spoke about second date.

Not sure what I'm meant to feel like though, def got and and def liked him but none of that fireworks other talk about. We had a good time and I would hall it see him again

How dies all that sound? Should it be like that or should I feel sparks?

Oh he must if just got home to whatsapp just came through x

MarkRuffaloCrumble Tue 15-Mar-16 23:32:38

ooh whats the whatsapp say?

CiaoVerona Tue 15-Mar-16 23:37:25

Well,its your date we can't really say if its right for you it sounds like you got along.

Actually, I guess we need to know what the text said.

Good job I didn't find this earlier as DP and I talked about all sorts on our first date, including class A drugs, prostitute, anal sex (all of which were a "god no, that's not a first date topic, we'll save that for our 4th date!")

We did mention exes but not going into it in depth, just a kind of "how long have you been single?" type of thing.

Glad your date went well and hope he doesn't dick you around!
