Been a while since you ventured into the big bad world of dating? We tell you how to avoid a nightmare.

That uncomfortable dress: You might be going on a date after years, but that too-tight, uncomfy dress will not make your case stronger. There’s nothing wrong in flaunting your hot figure, but don’t overdress on your first outing. Be yourself and keep that septum piercings intact and don’t hide the tattoo — they define you perfectly.

Your farmhouse in the hills: We understand that your daddy might have a sprawling place in the hills, but this is not the right time to talk about it. Your date loves nothing more than your self-made credentials, so rather than listing out your royal ancestry, focus on you. Of course, too much self talk can be annoying, so keep it balanced.

IOS 7 and its awesomeness: Your iPhone might be the hottest property in town, but please stop obsessing over that new operating system. Gadget talk might be sexy for some, but how many times have you had this conversation with ALL your friends?

The one that got away: First date after a long relationship? Make sure you don’t say out aloud whatever is going on in your head. And under no circumstances should you discuss the context of your breakup. Before you kick off with “she was so clingy,” and “I think he had a thing for his colleague,” and end with “but first love is always special,” — please stop.

Listen to the beatles: Listen to The Beatles as they tell you to just let it be! You don’t need conversation start cards or hours of pre-planning — just go with the flow.
