Some individuals make the mistake of dominating the conversation with their own stories and interests, leaving little room to learn about their date.
Sharing deeply personal or sensitive information too soon can make the other person uncomfortable or overwhelmed.
Focusing on phones, looking around, or not actively listening can convey disinterest and leave a negative impression.
Bringing up topics like marriage and long-term commitment too early can scare off a potential partner.
Failing to display courtesy, like arriving late or being impolite to waitstaff, can create a negative impression and undermine the date's success.
