You get seated without escorting your date to her seat first.

You suck! Drag that chair and make sure she’s seated before you do.

2) Indecisive with the selection of food.

You don’t know what to order, she’s probably waiting for you to make the choices. But you ask her what she wants when she is not sure either.

You suck! It’s best to know what cuisine you want and make quick decisions. Don’t look uncertain, take control.

3) Try to impress the cute waitress.

Indulging your food when hers hasn’t arrived is not acceptable.

You suck! Just wait, even if your food gets slightly colder.

6) Exaggeration during conversations.

Some girls may think it’s funny, but too much of King Kong and Ultraman talk isn’t an impressive thing to do.

You suck! Keep the moderation, and be modest.

7) Distracted and not attentive.

During the dinner date, your attention swerves to something else. Whatever she is saying to you, you’re not listening properly.

You suck! Pay attention to her, she’s the main attraction of the night.

8) Play the iPad.

  2. Agree, especially with “staring at screens” thing, be it iPad ke, iPhone ke, whatever. Anything that distracts you from F2F interaction is bad. You have plenty of time to play later! Impression on a date? Only ONCE!

  4. hahaha! but those are the basics that a guy should know la. not doing those is just normal while some might need to do some little extra to make the girl happy! so perhaps you could write those extra one like “how to make your girl feel sweet in a dinner date!” XD

  5. now we know why you’re still single >.< and I agree with no usage of iPads, iPhones, android phones, whatever phones when you're out on a dinner date. MUST pay attention to her!!! xD
