We all know there are just some little red flags that go up on a first date to let you know things are getting bad. (They start staring off into space vacantly etc etc) What I want to know is are there some signs that are universal or do they tend to vary a bit?
What are some red flags you have seen on a First Date?
Do you notice what red flags you give off? What are they?
How many red flags does it take for you to drop the date and give up on it collectively?

I think most signs of a bad date are pretty universal. Staring off into space (as you’ve stated), not contributing much to the conversation, texting, and awkward silences are all clear indicators of a bad date. Another major sign is if one person has completely different intentions than the other. For example, if a guy starts asking you sexual questions or invites you back to his place during the date, you’re going to see that as a red flag and probably be very disappointed if you’re looking for a serious relationship.
No matter how bad the date is going, I try my best to stay polite. Like, I’ll never pick up my phone and text, as that’s extremely rude and annoying for the other person. But if the conversation is literally going nowhere, I usually tend to just stop trying. The only reason I would actually end the date early is if I felt extremely uncomfortable (like if the guy started asking me sexual questions). Otherwise, I’d just try my best to get through it.
