Everyone gets nervous on a first date. But, if you're looking to the longer term, you also need to be astute. There are some signs that can be seen on the first date that are highly indicative of how they'll behave in the future. For example, if someone speaks poorly of past partners, only talks about themselves, or treats service staff (such as wait staff) badly, then these are all warning signs that should send you far away, and quickly!
- A first data can be exciting, but it can also be a good chance to get some important signs about the individual.
- There are some specific red flags that first date participants should keep a close eye out for.
- These include overly self-directed behavior, poor treatment of service staff, and speaking badly of former partners.
“Who is your date spending most time and energy focusing on? If they’re talking only about themselves, that may be a sign that they’re self-absorbed or even narcissistic.”
