What are some first date rules? I haven't dated in 9 years and I am going on a first date with a man tonight. So, what are some things that should and shouldn't happen on the first date?

Meet in a public place and make sure someone knows where you are going and who you are meeting.

Don't be clingy.

Don't spill your life story.

Don't act aggressive.

Don't let him meet your kids.

Have him meet you somewhere in public.

No sex on the first date.

I had sex on the first date and now I'm happily married - LOL I wouldn't reccomend it though. My husband was supossed to be a one night stand

Um - I don't know, I never was any good at dating - as you can tell since I had sex on the first date lol

If you have a good vibe and want to have a good night kiss, fine.  But I was more of a handshake on a first date type.  Or a quick kiss on the cheek.

Take my advice with a grain of salt because I started dating my dh at 18 and that was my last first date, 9 years ago. lol 

I think general rules are:

Don't talk about exes.

Don't talk about the 3 big no nos (aka religion, politics, and money).

I have heard from some male friends that they like a women to at least offer to buy her own meal. (Idk why, but they say that they don't like to feel that they are expected to foot the bill for the entire night even though they fully intend to do so...) 

Maybe keep talk about children to a minimum, unless they ask.

Basically I would say keep conversation on the "light" side just to get the feel for each other and save the in depth stuff for later on if you continue to see each other.
