50 Dumb Things Guys Do On First Dates

38. Donโ€™t tell her sheโ€™s your soul mate.

โ€œInsist that we’re made for one another and that you’ll be patient and wait for me to be ready. Seriously, I really liked the guy, and was completely put off by his insistence that I was his future.

We’d had dinner, not a date, before this where he was charming, confident funny, and even found a way to tactfully ask if I dated men (there was quite a bit of doubt/confusion in my social group on my preferences). I was really excited when he asked me out too, and then bam, apparently we’re soul mates.

I also found out he’d told everyone we were a couple, and even got a stern talking to from him about โ€˜breaking upโ€™ with him via Facebook and embarrassing him in front of his friends. All I said was I didn’t want to go out again when he asked and confirmed that we were never a couple when it came up with other people.

I will say, in his defense, a couple of months later he apologized for his behavior, and for coming on too strong. He claims he took some awful advice. We eventually became friends.โ€
