Millionaire matchmaker dating tips
Here are the top seven “don’ts” on a first date: 1.
Don’t Mention the Ex Or how many other people you’re dating. Or which Patriots quarterback you’re lusting after.
Don’t Get Wasted Anyone who’s watched Jersey Shore knows the deep and profound wisdom inherent in rule No. If only Vinnie had heeded this rule, he might not have ended up in bed with the Staten Island Dump.
“Do not drink past two glasses of wine or two cocktails,” Stanger warns. Do not think that you can do a third because you’re an Irish Catholic and your dad can drink your mother under the table. (Ladies Only:) Don’t Bring Up Marriage or Kids Yes, it seems very 1950s to say that men can broach the subject of matrimony and children but women have to avoid these topics like the plague.
Face it, being drunk and slurring your words just isn't attractive. Thou Shalt Not be a Gold Digger Do not ever ask for anything of monetary value.

Thou Shall Return Calls in a Timely Manner Always return a potential love interest's call within 48 hours during the week (72 hours over the weekend).

Be courteous...you're not living in the movie Swingers where you're supposed to wait X amount of days to call back. If you weren't interested in him, you should have never agreed to go out. Thou Shall Let the Man Take the Lead I know it sounds old-fashioned, but it's embedded in their DNA—men need to feel like the hunter. That also means no baggage dumping, previous health issue talk or discussing any skeletons in your closet. Answer his questions with energy and genuine enthusiasm.
“Never bring up religion and politics,” says Stanger.
“You’ll get into a heated argument; most people do not generally agree, and when you go down that road you end up leaving the date quicker than not.” So if you’re jonesing for Jesus, or cuckoo for Christine O’Donnell, or outraged at Obama, Stanger advises to keep it to yourself, at least in the beginning.3. Negative Nelly.” Your date doesn’t need to hear about your former life as a coke-sniffing prostitute.
