9 Red Flags To Look For During First Dates In The Duluth Area
It doesn't have to be Valentine's day to have love in the air. Dating can be hard, especially when trying to find "the one". However, watch out for these first date red flags in the Duluth area.
Not all dates are doomed from the very beginning, you just have to know what to look for. Also dating can be scary, especially first dates. Sometimes it's hard see those blaring red signs, don't worry you're not blind and I'm here to help. Some of our listeners even shared some red flags they've experienced.
Check out these red flags to watch out for in the Northland:
Watch What You Say
One listener submitted a very scary story: "I went on a date once and he took me and his dog way out in the woods and then told me he could do anything he wanted to me and nobody would ever know. I booked it home." I would've ran faster than I would while playing a game of Duck, Duck, Gray Duck.
Is A Plus One Okay?
No, a plus one is not okay on a date. It's meant to get to know each other. Please don't bring a friend or your parent with you (which apparently has happened to a few listeners).
Hopefully They Aren't Already In A Relationship
Could you imagine? You're having a great time on your date, they are checking every box and then ope, their significant other shows up.
Make Sure Their Downstairs Neighbor Is Not Their Ex
Another wild story from a listener has her bringing pizza to a guys house to play video games. As soon as she gets there, he puts the pizza in the fridge and says “I ate before you came”. The next 15 minutes included his roommate and joining them wearing nothing but boxers and a Darth Vader mask asking if he could eat the pizza she brought. If there's no red flags popping up yet, here's what happens next: the guy's ex girlfriend who lives downstairs walks into the apartment and says “I felt I should get to know you before you meet our kids”. That was the end of that date.
Don't Be This Amount Of Weird
It's okay to let your freak flag fly, we're all a little weird. However, this is just pushing it. One listener experienced this: "When the guy grabbed me by my face told me if I was a man that he would punch me in the face and then looked at my chin for chin hairs also he tried to kiss me and drooled all over my shirt."
When They Wear The Enemies Colors
Listen, I get it. People will like what they want to like, but here in Minnesota. This is Vikings country. SKOL!
Bringing Up The Ex
Oh cripes, that's not an okay thing to do. If your date starts bringing up the old roster, it's time to go. Perhaps they're not fully moved on yet.
Already Checking The Dating App
Holy buckets, you ever happened to look over and your date is messaging other people on the dating app? Big yikes.
Together or Separate Bills?
Uffda, when at of the many wonderful restaurants in the area it's definitely a weird feeling when one shouts out "separate". I think it should be talked about beforehand what's happening with the bill so it's not a surprise.
Happy dating out there and hopefully there are no red flags on your next date. Check out this pickup lines that only Duluth-Superior residents will understand:
