Even if you have met a great woman on an international dating site, and gotten to know her well online, there’s still a chance that your first date could turn out badly. Some dates are just okay, but nothing exciting. After this type of date with a woman, it is only fair to give her another chance. However, if the date is worse then, while you should still probably go on another date with her, you may have to proceed with caution. When you are going on dates with European women, there are a few red flags that you should watch out for. These red flags can help you to determine any future problems that you may have in the relationship, if you are to continue dating. If she exhibits any of them, then you may want to rethink the relationship.
Top Five Red Flags to Watch out for On The First Date
Talking about an Ex
One of the worst things that a person can do is talk about an ex excessively. If she mentions her ex throughout the conversation, it can be a clear sign that she is still interested in him. You do not want to be with a person that is still romantically interested in someone else. It is also a pretty boring subject for you to hear about. Overall, it is a topic of conversation that should always be avoided on a first date.
Concentrating on her Phone rather than You
If she is on her phone a lot and constantly checking her text messages and emails, it is not only rude, but it can also be a sign that she is more interested in her own life than she is in you. If she can’t put her phone down during your date, then she is likely not the type of woman who would be an attentive partner.
If she is constantly pessimistic, it can bring the whole tone of the date down. It can turn what could have been a good date, into a dreary and depressing date. If she constantly sees the negative in everything and puts herself down at all times, then she is most likely a pessimistic person, who won’t be fun to be around. She could also be insecure about herself. This is most likely not the type of person that you want to form a relationship with.
She Doesn’t say Thank You
If you notice that your date doesn’t say thank you when you hold doors open for her, when you take her coat for her, or when a waiter brings your food to the table, it could be a sign that she isn’t a grateful person. While this may seem like something small, it can become a problem later in a relationship. If she doesn’t thank people now and just expects people to do things for her, without giving people a simple recognition by saying thank you, then this can become a frustrating aspect later on in your relationship.
When you go on a date with European women, always remember that it will be a nerve-wracking experience for both of you. If she’s really nervous, it could cause her to act differently. This is why it is important to give your date a second chance. If she displays some of these red flags on your first date, then still go on a second date with her, but if they happen again, then you may need to proceed with caution.
