What we say on a first date and what we’re really thinking
A hilarious new video demonstrates how important it is to just be yourself on a first date – it can save all kinds of misunderstandings.
As we all know, first dates can be very nerve-racking and you want to show yourself in the best possible light in order to make a good first impression – or at least what you think is a good first impression!
For all we know our ‘bending of the truth’ during a date could be having the opposite effect to the one we were hoping for.
We could have more in common with our date than we realise if only we had the courage to be ourselves.
That is the case in a great new video from her.ie. In which a young Irish couple are sat in a restaurant on their first date.
We can hear the thoughts of both the man and the woman before they speak, saying the opposite of what they were actually thinking.
They are both working hard to appear sophisticated and interesting. It leads to some hilarious misunderstandings even to the point where they’re ordering food and drink that they don’t actually like.
If only they could have both been themselves they might have got on great!
