Zoo

We all associate zoos with happy memories of childhood, ice cream and our favourite animals. But let’s just leave this place back in the childhood, shall we? Zoos are for children young enough to appreciate animals and not think of them all as creatures who live quite a sad life in the cage for the rest of their days. And they kinda smell. Wait until you have some babies for this one.

Shopping Mall

First of all, having first date in the shopping mall is a sign of your shallow personality. Sitting on a bench outside Forever 21 is a special punishment reserved for fathers and long-term boyfriends. Please save yourself from absolutely ruining the first impression your date will have and avoid this emotionless place.

Netflix and Chill

We all know that Netflix and Chill is more of a booty call that a date. You can always tell how a relationship is going to end by the way that it starts in the beginning. In this case, there would probably be no real respect or courtship throughout the relationship since there was not even an effort to make a real first date. Do put some more effort in the very beginning. You will enjoy your “netflix and chill” when the time comes.

Your Birthday Dinner

Although bringing your date to your Birthday might seem like a great opportunity to shine bright and create a great first impression. Having all your best friends and being in the center of everyone’s attention might really attract your date, but on the other hand, having too many friends at your birthday who’ll want to spend quality time with you will detach you from deep, bonding conversations with your date. When everyone is focusing on you, the last thing you’ll want to do is babysit a person you barely know.

Noisy dance club

First of all, you probably won’t be able to hear each other over the yells of ‘shots, shots, shots’ and thumping house music. You can only rely on having fun while dancing, and even in this case, unless you’re a Shakira or Beyonce, Drake or Timberlake you can’t be 100% confident in your moves. And let’s be honest, they might as well be a huge turn-off for your date.
