There is nothing more off-putting than an arrogant, know-it-all who shoots their mouth off about money, achievements, and material trappings. Another red flag is bad table manners, and how they treat the waiter or waitress is a good indication of their overall vibe.

The truth is that first dates are risky, so many things could go wrong or right. You might not like the person from the beginning but are forced to be polite and keep going, or you might get ghosted... or something worse! You have to take a chance, or you will never know.

  4. They are rude to the waiter
