50 Dumb Things Guys Do On First Dates

35. Don’t take a girl you hardly know to a secluded spot.

β€œMy wife tells a great long-ago story of a first date where the guy was really into rock climbing. He asked her to meet him at the place, and she didn’t know what she was in for. My wife does not like heights…

Long story short, buddy shames her into trying rock climbing when she’d rather be sipping a cool drink and chatting. She agrees so as not be rude and has a terrible time. He proceeds to scurry about the rocks showing off and leaving her on the ground.

Moral of the story: no adventure dates where you care more about impressing the girl than getting to know her.

Also: don’t take a girl you hardly know to a secluded spot. She doesn’t know you aren’t a creep yet.”
