Don’t be THAT girl …. mind your manners!

Don’t be THAT girl …. mind your manners!

When you are on a date one of the biggest mistakes you can make is being THAT girl … you know, the girl who hates on others. Why would you not mind your manners on a date? What’s wrong with you?

A good friend of mine was on a date with a girl he thought was absolutely perfect in every way. That was, until the end of the meal, she turns her head and says something bitchy. She made a nasty comment about another girl in the restaurant and what the girl was wearing. My friend was immediately turned off by this girl, he otherwise really liked. By talking smack about some other random girl she became bitchy and men don’t tend to like that. Cattiness is never an attractive quality. As my grandmother used to say …

If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say a damn thing.


No, seriously … When you are on a date you should be putting your best foot forward. What is the point of showing some guy you just met that you are a judgmental bitch? What kind of person judges others they don’t even know based on such superficial things in the first place? Did your mother not teach you better manners than that?

What you say speaks volumes about you and will make a guy run for the hills faster than you know.

When you are on a date, always remember your manners. Say thank you and let him know you appreciate him. But also remember your other manners. Don’t gossip, don’t talk bad about others and always go out of your way to be extra nice to your waiter or waitress.

Speaking of your waiter or waitress, watch how your date treats them as well. If a person doesn’t treat their servers well, that also speaks volumes about his character and how in the long run he’ll treat you.
