Are you a boring date?

boring date

First dates have to be one of the most nerve-wracking experiences ever, even if you’ve already gone on a million of them. Getting over the asking them out part is tough, but then you have to do… everything else. So, you finally asked out your crush, picked out the cutest outfit, and decided where to go. Everything feels so ~magical~. And then, you get there and a few minutes into the date you realize… maybe this isn’t very fun. There are some awkward silences and it’s a bit uncomfortable, and you begin to regret ever going on this date. You might think,‘”wow, this person is super boring,” but have you ever stopped to think maybe it was you who was making the date bad? It’s not something you really want to think about, but sometimes, you might not realize that you are being a boring date.

There are a lot of factors that can make your date seem bad. Sometimes, it isn’t you. Your date might be boring or annoying and it has nothing to do with you! But other times, you might be the one who is boring your date (and yourself) to tears, and maybe you just don’t even realize it.
