What to Never Say to a Woman You Just Met

Meeting women is hard – no doubt about that. So once you meet them, you don’t want to send them running for the hills as soon as you open your mouth. Navigating those first few conversations and interactions can be tough, and there are no end of opportunities for you to put your foot in your mouth.

So how do you know what to say to a woman you just met? Mostly you want to seem interested in her and mature enough for a relationship (whether that’s what you’re looking for or not). Sounds simple enough, right? But we all know it’s not that easy.

That’s because the real challenge when you’re trying to get to know a woman can be figuring out what not to say. Women want so many contradictory things from a man that it’s pretty much guaranteed you’ll make a mistake (at least from her point of view), but there are certain mistakes that will cut you off at the knees before you even get in the door. To try and help you keep the conversation going, here are a couple of things you should never say to a woman you just met.

Kids and Marriage

This is a topic to steer clear of at all costs. It may very well be what she’s looking for, but any guy who blurts out that he wants to marry a woman and have ten kids is going to get shot down real fast. There’s really no good way to talk about this early on in a relationship so it’s best just to stay away from it completely.

Nothing Serious

Whether you want a serious relationship or not, don’t ever let on that you’ve never been in one. If a woman thinks you’re not relationship material, you’ll be out with the trash before you know what hit you.

Mommy Dearest

Moms, both yours and hers, can be crazy subjects to try and navigate. The very last thing you ever want to do is compare her to her mother. Those mother-daughter relationships are pretty intense and so complicated that you’ll never find your way out of that one.

Also, you might think that talking about your mom makes you seem sensitive, but it really will probably just make you look like a mama’s boy, and that’s not gonna get you many second dates. After all, no woman wants to think she’ll be competing with your mommy for your affections.
