5 Topics Not to Bring Up On Your First Dateby Aly Walansky

No one wants to hear your “how he done me wrong” story on a first date, especially if you’re still bitter and hurt about it. He also doesn’t want to hear about the wonderful guy in your past you’re still hung up on and are certain to compare him to.
Whatever is stressing you out, keep it to yourself. You don’t want to download your issues on a new guy on the critical first date. Let him think you’re fun and carefree – and most importantly drama free. Guys hate conflict and drama.

In retrospect though, I wish I had brought up the topic for her. Look at the items below and see which ones you need to bring up with your kids.

This’ll probably upset my female friends, not to mention my mother (considering I’m going home to visit her this weekend), but I feel I have to get on my soapbox about this topic: the vilification of heterosexual men.
