1. Your Ex
You may have an ex to top all over exes. And no doubt you have some stories to tell about him and the crazy relationship you had. Your first date with a new guy is not the time to do that. If you end up in a committed relationship from this first date then you might consider sharing some things about your ex if you feel it’s appropriate. Until then, focus on getting to know about each other.
2. Your Sexual History
This’s something you’ll probably want to share at some point. But it’s not a topic for first date conversation. Wait until the subject comes up between you. At that point, it’s natural to share about your sexual history. You’re more open-minded after you’ve gotten to know one another which can be helpful when discussing topics like this one.
3. Your Bad Habits
Ladies, keep this one mum. Now and forevermore! We all have bad habits and that’s just part of being human. But the guy in your life will discover them soon enough without you telling him. No need to ‘fess up to the fact that you bite your nails, are a tad messy or whatever other bad habits you may have.

You rarely go through life without experiencing at least a few problems with friends or family members. It’s frustrating and upsetting when that happens. And you do need someone to talk to about it. But your first time date is not the person for that job! You need to at least be headed into a serious relationship before you start spilling the dirt on people in your life.
6. Financial Problems
Rare is the person who never faces a financial problem. But it’s still not a good topic for a first date. You don’t really want to talk about your credit card debt or the fact that you’re late on your car payment, do you? It doesn’t make for fun conversation. Focus on the handsome guy you’re out with and all the fun you’re having right now. Financial problems should be talked about when the relationship becomes serious and definitely before you combine finances.
7. How Many Kids You Want
Of course this’s a serious topic that you want to discuss with the man you’re going to have a future with. But you don’t know if the guy you’re going on a first date with is going to be
