True story (context: this is a gay date) : I went on a date with a guy who blasted Christian techno music in the car (who knew that was a thing?) when he picked me up. Ok, I thought, I can be open minded and not reject s guy just because he is un-ironically shouting "praise Jesus" to an oontz-oontz best. Then it turned out he was carrying a gun (just in case, he said). Then while on the day he was wicked jealous and paranoid     Asking if I had farked whatever guy he thought my eyes had lingers on. No, I didn't fark the waiter and if I had so what?

Anyways finally the date was at an and and we went back to his place where I had parked my car. He said he had to walk his dog and then when he let his dog out the dog was hyper and barking  from being cooped up all day and this asshole started kicking it and yelling at it to shut up.

I got out of there as fast as I could. He called the next day and I made up some baloney excuse about not being able to date  because I was not over my ex. Then a couple weeks later I called animal control to anonymously report the animal abuse.

Moral of the story: beware of Christian techno fans.

Back in my dating days, I discovered that Gay Christian = Flake. I admit the possibility that that's not always the case, but I have yet to personally run across an exception.

No discussing politics?  

Sorry, politics are, for me, a test balloon and a serious part of whether I'm going to consider a second date.  Religion too.  You don't have to believe just like me, but you have to be in the ballpark.  If you are a Trump supporter that's a disqualifier for me.  If you don't believe in equal rights (male/female, race, sexual orientation, religion, nation of origin) that's a no go for me.  Religiously you have to be okay with me not being religious and with at least the tolerant forms of all the major religions.  (You don't have to be okay with Isis, in fact that would be a deal breaker, as would being a fan of Pat Robertson).  No Republicans or libertarians need apply.

Divisive activities...well, if your passion is rock climbing, and you're looking for someone who shares your interests, then having your first date be at a rock-climbing gym would be a useful screen, methinks.

Also:  don't be rude to the waitstaff.  Everyone knows that someone who's nice to you but rude to the waitress is a horrible person.

Hmm - never thought about it in that context, but ones I've met (as a straight guy so more limited interaction but still) have indeed been flaky as hell.  I always figured it was just a coincidence.  Perhaps not.

The worst situations I've been in, and witnessed, is when a girl brings her friend along on a date or when her 'date' is asking you to come hang out with her and her friends. I understand concerns about safety, but being forcibly interjected into someone's social circle as a first date is insanely awkward and makes it seem like you're the third wheel.

There are a few topics that you should never discuss on a date: politics, religion

You should probably know these things about the person as soon as possible, and if not before the first date, then the first date is the place to do it.
I wouldn't want to talk about them for very long, but knowing where you and your date stands on these things is a pretty good idea.

First I was sad that these "common sense" articles exist.

Then I was sad that trying a new sushi place is a "divisive" activity. I'm not a huge sushi fan, but it's such a normal thing these days, and even in Japan you can get other things at a sushi place.

Do you believe that's because they are stil wrestling with their sexual identity and that causes them to be flaky? I similarly don't mess around with deeply religious women. If you're not into premarital sex and we aren't ever getting married, where does that leave us? Let's not waste each other's time, I have no interest in conning, tricking, conjoling or emotional blackmailing anyone to get what I want out of a situation so let's just not.

Met up with someone who wore sweats to our first (and only) date. Nothing says "I don't give a shiat" like showing up in what you would wear on laundry day. They then complained about the food and were rude to the waitress. Really uncomfortable. Thankfully that was as bad as it got.

My two biggest all-time doozies in that department were:

1) The guy who started the date by showing me the picture of Jesus he kept in his wallet. Later that night I awoke to find him in the process of taking the credit cards from my wallet.

2) The guy who wanted to have unprotected sex because it was "more natural," and assured me he was HIV- because he had done something called "approaching the throne of Gabriel" and said archangel had told him that God would protect him from getting infected.
