If someone would teach a class in dating etiquette, I wonder if anyone would bother to show up. It seems that some people really don’t know any better, so they continue to subject their dates to poor etiquette on a date.
I know some things seem like common sense, but those are the same behaviors that prevent a second or third date. I have heard countless people complain about others texting throughout the date or not focusing on the conversation on a date. What if your dating etiquette needs work?
It’s not even an age thing, either. Young and mature people can exhibit poor dating etiquette. When you are impolite, rude, or inconsiderate on a date, it’s no surprise when you can’t manage to get a real connection with anybody. Can you blame them, though?
I remember a young lady telling me about her date making extremely rude comments to the people at a nearby table. She said she overlooked that incident, but it wasn’t long before that attitude was directed her. I believe you should take it as a red flag when someone shows poor taste or impolite behavior in a social setting.
Have you ever been on a date and someone surprised you with their rudeness or impolite behavior? How did you handle it? What is the best way to deal with a date that has shown they have no dating etiquette?
