On the day of the date The Single Man’s Manual advises you to watch or listen to the news, look up general interesting stories on the internet – at least then you have some prepared topics of conversation. This will help to make the woman feel comfortable if you talk about third party external topics and events, subjects that are not related to either of you. Save asking more personal questions for later if you are both getting on.
When dating again steer clear of religious or political topics until you get to know them better. Many people feel very passionate about these subjects which can lead to heated conversations – not a great start on a first date.
Other topics to steer clear of are your ex-girlfriend, ex-wives, ex-mistress, in fact – all ex’s. If you hear yourself starting to say something like – ‘oh! my ex used to do/say/wear that . . . . ‘and the other person just listens, this does not mean a permission slip has been granted to continue talking about your ex. It just means that this woman is too kind to scream at the top of her voice “FOR GOD’S SAKE DON’T TALK TO ME ABOUT YOUR PREVIOUS PARTNERS”. Instead she is likely to finish the date as soon as possible call her girlfriend’s straight afterwards and say “Yep – another one bites the dust – talked about his EX! BORED!”
From the research compiled for The Single Man’s Manual talking about your ex is the number one turn off.
