The date Congratulations, you've managed to hold your matches attention and you've secured a date. You're under no obligation to do something you just don't want to do, date or not. But, following etiquette guidelines doesn't mean that you have to be stuffy or feel like you're not yourself.
When you find yourself in the middle of a pregnant silence simply saying something like, "Wow. Never ever bring up exes, marriage or kids. And really, that's what you'd hope any potential romantic partner would put forth too, right? You will probably scare them off, and be left wondering what went wrong. Take A Stand If Things Get Weird If your date crosses one of your person boundaries or does anything else to make you realize they might just be the antichrist, don't be afraid to tell them so.
