I am proficient in Mandarin Chinese. On some past dates, I have gone to Chinese restaurants and ordered in Mandarin to try to show off to my date.
Anyway, my friend who knows I do that told me that it's a turn-off and that it just "makes me look like an idiot." Since I've gone on both successful and unsuccessful dates where I have shown off my Chinese skills to my date, I am not sure whether it's a turn on or a turn off. What do you think?

If you're doing it to show off, it's a turnoff for sure. It's a cool skill, I'm impressed by anyone who is fluent in more than one language, but I'd rather have it randomly come up, I wouldn't like it to be 'shown off' to impress me. Plus, it's not like it's a romantic language, like French or Spanish. You probably do look a little silly speaking Chinese lol. :)4
