It's 2016, and the world is joyously reaping the benefits of a reality promised in bygone movies like Back to the Future Part II. Aside from the fact that the hoverboards depicted in the film tend to -- um -- explode a lot, the future isn't half bad. However, there are still some conventions of life that will never evolve or go away: like the first date.
It’s tough reading body language, pheromones aren’t overtly smelly, and there's always the chance that your date will leave dinner early to meet up with a Tinder match for a night of impossibly hot sex with... not you. The first date is, by all accounts, really hard.
Still, there's no reason to abandon your judgment when testing the waters of a potential new relationship. If you're doing any of these things during a first date, you should immediately stop, re-examine your life, and perhaps quit dating all together. Hey, we’re pretty close to developing sex robots, so that could be promising?
