    This discussion is to be kept clean. What are some turn offs for you on a first date? Call me old fashioned, but I find messing about with a cell phone in the midst of conversation incredibly rude, especially on a first date. Also, using the phrases " I'm an old soul" or " I consider myself a smart person" is a huge turn off and bound to elicit me laughing in their face.

    I dunno, I would find that hilarious. Then again, maybe not on a first date.

    My sister once went on a first date with a guy who came straight from doing yardwork, and apparently stank to high heaven. He was genuinely surprised she wasn't interested in seeing him again.

    Cheap people.. Where its just obvious.
    Lame dates like.. going for coffee...
    Those who make kissing at the end of the date extremely awkward
    and I don't want to say it.. but drinking too much.. where the person starts screaming and hooting loudly.

    - Obnoxious/loud personality
    - Too nervous or intense.
    - Poor conversationalist.
    - People who talk about their friends or family members by name as if you know them.
    - Blatant signs she's dumb as a rock.
    - Any signs of drama (crazy roommates, ex-b/f still in the picture, unaccepting parents, etc.)
    - If she uses the word "like" in every sentence every few words. Drives me nuts!
    - Infusing a ton of inside jokes from her cliques of friends or references I have no way of knowing.
    - Poor topic selection (had a girl describe to me her period... on a 1st date!).

    * Party lifestyle -- I loved it years ago, but now I'm looking to settle down
    * Ever present phone -- you're on a date with me, not whoever is texting you
    * Living in the past -- people that won't shut up about their college days. Move on.
