Survey shows that men and women agree on the worst thing that anyone can do on a first date
It's just rude.
First dates can be a tricky thing to navigate because for every person that you manage to 'lob the gob' on and get a second date, there's always those horrible moments when it feels like you might as well be talking to the wall.
I'm sure that you're all slick, smooth and sultry around those people that you fancy however there's no denying that we all have our own horror stories when it comes to the dating world.
The websiteWhatsYourPrice.com have a few interesting pointers though because they have surveyed over 100,00 people and discovered the 5 main 'no-no's' when it comes to that first meeting.
I'm absolutely delighted to see that men and women agree on the most annoying thing. It seriously bugs me.
If you're a man then the crux of the research is to try and avoid being a miserable drunk that spends all of your time on the phone while simultaneously hurling abuse at the staff. A valuable life lesson.
