I was going through my files and I came across these tips. My note says these are “First Date Conversation No-No’s” given by people on the front lines of dating and excerpted from “Dating: A Survival Guide from the Frontlines” by Josey Vogels.

What not to talk about on a first date:

• “Diseases or illnesses, obsessive behavior, friends in jail.”
• “Exes.”
• “Medical problems that mean you can’t have children.”
• “Bodily functions.”
• “Details about failed personal relationships.”
• “How much you hate your family.”
• “How you were dumped by all your former girl/boyfriends.”
• “Politics, religion or sexuality.”
• “Family problems.”
• “Your favorite sexual positions.”
• “Dead cats, negative ideas.”
• “Cars. (Unless you’re date is a car freak too, car talk is boring!)
• “How much money you make or spend.”
• “Financial difficulties.”
• “How I should run my life, according to you!”

What do you think? Do you agree or disagree? Anybody want to confess a “Oh no, you went there” moment?
