Date etiquette needs work

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?

What is the best way to deal with a date that has shown they have no dating etiquette? that’s easy, don’t date them again.

It’s not just poor dating etiquette, it’s just poor etiquette period. If you can’t be disconnected from the world for what ever reason for a few hours then stay at home. With this internet, (blog) world we live in now, I can see someone being rude to others, because most of us think that our opinions matters, and don’t realize it only matter to us, which unless asked for that’s where it should be kept.

GOOD Monday Morning MIA!!! :-)

Have you ever been on a date and someone surprised you with their rudeness or impolite behavior? No, I haven’t experienced that. However, if I had that would be the last date with that person. I choose not to subject myself to rude behavior from another. When you have a choice ultimately it’s up to you as to whether or not you’re going to continue to deal with that behavior. You can either work with them on their etiquette or leave them alone and move on.

Thank God I haven’t….i’ve been blessed with dating some decent, well-mannered guys.

I must say, after being off for the last 4 days and running amuck for my cousin’s wedding, i’m really not here today. I could’ve used another day or two off to relax but i’m just going to try to make the best of it.

MissMoni – The wedding was very nice especially with an open bar :lol: The only thing I’d change is me being in more pics…I was running around helping out so I didn’t get a lot of photo opportunities. Oh and my sister ended up drinking too much and threw up in the bridal suite on the floor. After it was over, we all went back to hotel and partied some more but left the sis in the car to sleep it off. On another note, I was really proud of my niece (the flower girl) at how well she did.

Have you ever been on a date and someone surprised you with their rudeness or impolite behavior? yes, he was loud, rude to the waitress (kept talking over her) and kept telling me to try a certian type of food item that I don’t eat. Bad thing about it, he didn’t realise that he was being rude and obnoxious. He kept asking me “what’s the problem”? After what was supposed to be a date, I got in my car and edited his name to DNA and never talked to him again. I was totally surprised by his manners. I knew he was a high sprung guy but I didn’t expect that type of behavior.

Not yet. If it does happen, he will not get another date. I agree with Single- if people are rude on a date, they are likely rude period and have poor etiquette over all, not just when dating.

Etiquette is not absolute. There are many versions of etiquette, and they are always changing. So, what you consider poor etiquette might not be so to someone else. I think the real question is whether their ideas about personal interactions align with yours. If so, then go all in, full steam ahead. If not, then find someone more compatible.

Roll call – Present.

I don’t recall ever being on a date where he was rude. I’ve been out where someone else’s date was rude by trying to make convo w/me, slip me their number, compliment me in an inappropriate way.

When on a date, I don’t answer my phone (unless it’s my child or mother) and I certainly do not text or answer text. If my family members call and it’s a non-emergency, I will say I will call them back later, but ignoring a call from them is not an option.

Button Depends on your definition of etiquette. There are several versions of the Book of Etiquette, which are revised and updated every year. So do you mean etiquette in that sense? Are you defining etiquette as those “rules” that are governed by your spiritual/moral/ethical beliefs? Is etiquette to you simply being polite? If etiquette is “acceptable” social behavior, then it necessarily changes as the social dynamics of the times change. Is etiquette the same in America as it is in China? Etiquette in America dictates that you eat with a fork in your left hand and a knife in your right. This wouldn’t apply if you live in a society that eats with chopsticks.

Morning All!

I’ve never really had a guy show bad manners on a date. I think that may be due to my selections! They all may have had other issues, but lack of hometraining was not one of them.

The last time the subject of texting/phone calls on a date came up on here, there was much discussion when it came to one’s children or aged parents/sick family members. It was taken as if there was a blanket rule to not take calls or texts on a date. Or that if someone had a problem with such, they were being insecure and unreasonable. To me that’s where “common sense” should kick in. I don’t think any sane, responsible, reasonable person would object to a person responding to a call/text from someone you have a responsibility for. But if it’s not anything pressing and you are focused on text/calling them like you would a buddy, then maybe you should have stayed home and scheduled the date for another time when you are free.

Dreams – I would think Wise’s topic is pertaining to dating etiquette, which to me stands on being polite and couteous. Of course there are many avenues of etiquette such as eating, driving, etc etc but it all boils down to being polite and courteous to others around you. You are required to set a certian standards when in the presence of others. When it comes to eating whether you’re eating with chopsticks or with your fingers, there is a proper way to do it. Btw eating with chopsticks in China is a culture thing not an etiquette thing. I don’t know how to use chopsticks so if I were to dine in China I would ask for a fork and knife just as I do when I eat a restaurant in china town in Chamblee.

Durty ~ I think most people with “game” are hiding from something. I wouldn’t necessarily say disco has game, but more being herself and upfront with her weak suitors. If you’re upfront with the person and they comply, it’s on them. But to go out with someone you’re simply out with so you don’t be bored at home then discard them until you’re bored again is not a good look But again, if the person recognizes it for what it is and complies, shame on them.

It’s like that new song out “all I want to do is touch it….” Some men don’t mind being used because they desperately want to be in that woman’s company. They try their best to not come off that way, but some can be smelled a mile away!!!

On the topic of dating etiquette, someone should organize a seminar for women who date husbands.
If you don’t have married man etiquette, don’t apply for the position. Reckless text messages, public displays of affection, and unexpected, ill-timed phone calls are all indicative of a mistress without manners. That type of blatant rudeness and misbehavior has been the detriment of many unions.

many years ago – like close to 20 – this guy didn’t tell me about his live in girlfriend. months go by so he’s both our man. lol. she got my number and called me. during the conversation she told me that they had a daughter and asked if I cared about her daughter. you know I wasn’t even trying to be funny when I told her “no, I don’t care about your daughter. does he care about your daughter”. lol. needless to say she was livid.

my Sunday dinner was leftovers from Saturday dinner. meatloaf, mashed potatoes, corn cut off the cob. my downfall yesterday was I grabbed a handful of cookies every time I went in the kitchen. it was nothing nice. lol.

slim – I watched it the other day. (not premier night but one of the re-run nights)

slim – I enjoyed it but they setting old girl (gabrielle union) up to be another sucker. looks like she’s going to cave in to the demands of her family and looks like she doesn’t have the strength to give old married dude the boot. we’ll see.

disco – What did you think about when she approached the married dude’s wife in the store? (wife’s response that is)

slim – wife, as far as I’m concerned, didn’t owe old girl an explanation as to why she was going to keep/stay with her husband. she was too polite/civil for my taste. a chick gone step to you and tell you about your husband the least you can do is tell her something back. asking the jumpoff if she had any diseases. she should have told her that she (the wife) had one. that would’ve have worried her for awhile. lol.

2CP.. Disco only deals with the aged.. That is 65 yrs old and up… They must have a 401k, pension plan, a credit card and a car…lol

The ladies are tapped out financially, so men do not expect gifts they have maxed out on the house they wanted, the car they wanted and the clothes they wanted that is why they need you to plan the vacation….

Women lie more than men…They tell little white lies in their mind that does not count as a lie! Now that is some brainwashing going on with the little white lie words….
