Some Lies That Are Acceptable to Make during First Dates

Some Lies That Are Acceptable to Make during First Dates

There’s no hard and fast rule that tells you not to lie in your first date. In fact, there are instances when lying is the best thing to do. But of course, you can’t just lie about everything. Some lies are simply outright unacceptable while there are lies which are pretty safe to make, especially during first dates. Here’s my list:

1. It is acceptable to tell your date that he/she caught your attention the first time you saw him/her. This might not be true, but it is not bad to lie about this. We all love to be flattered and to be told that we stood out from the rest is something that is really flattering. Of course, no one would want to hear you say that somebody else got your attention but since that person is already not available, you are forced to choose your date instead. That’s very harsh and awkward right?

2. It is acceptable to say that your life is alright even when you are downright wrong! You can’t dump on your date all the worries and problems that you have right now. You can tell your date that your job is fine even though you hate it so much; you can also say that your family is alright when in fact, you have not talked to your mom for weeks. Personal stuff that can potentially complicate your situation may be skipped over. You can’t expect your date to understand you anyway — especially on your first day. If your date hears nothing from you but complains, you might not have the chance to have a second date with him or her.

3. It is acceptable to pretend that you are interested of the things that interest your date, even though you aren’t. If your date is fascinated with the zombie apocalypse, just go with it. Say that you also believe in what they believe. Make the discussion more interesting for him or for her. This simple lie can help you loosen up and get to know your date a little more. Tell your date that you also like the same movie they like. Or maybe, that you share the same hobbies or interest; anything that can help him or her open up to you more.

4. It is acceptable to tell you date that you enjoyed their company, even though you didn’t. Call it courtesy, but it is really rude for you say bad things to your date. You don’t have to sugar-coat everything, you just need to nice to them before you bid goodbye.

Honesty is not our license to hurt the feelings of other people. Sometimes, we need to lie just to help others feel good about them. However, it is still better if we will be able to do this without having to lie. In the end, we will still be accountable for the lie that we make. If you happen to have another chance to date the person, you’d better start making things right to avoid problems in the future.
