Online Dating South Africa and Avoiding First Dates From Hell

Many women who try online dating South Africa make certain avoidable mistakes on their first dates. These include:

Behaving as if the Date is Inconvenient
You should manage your time so you are mentally prepared for your date. If you are late arriving and have a rushed demeanour, your date will think that he is not important to you.

Acting Dis-interested
It is offensive if you are elsewhere in your thoughts when your date is speaking to you. This will be obvious to your date immediately, and he will be resentful.

Taking Text Messages and Telephone Calls
Taking “important” texts or calls whilst on your date is rude and inexcusable. Your date will become justifiably irritated because he has set aside the time, money and effort to devote to you.

Asking Inappropriate Questions
Online dating South Africa websites let you get to know your date before meeting up. Don’t interrogate him about past relationships, or ask if he has a criminal record on a first date. Should you suspect this, then you can always research him on the web.

Criticising the ex
Do not subject your date to a bitter rant about the hardship you encountered during your previous relationship. He will assume that, if you speak that way about your ex, then you will also speak about him in a similar vein.

Speaking too Much
If there are any conversation lulls, encourage your date to talk about himself. Men like doing this and you will discover things about him that you would never have otherwise known!


Don’t attempt to psychoanalyse your date. This is off putting and can kill any possibility for romance.

Avoiding all of these dating faux pas’ will give you every chance of success when online dating South Africa, so don’t miss out on meeting ‘Mr Right’ unnecessarily!
