I have so much secondhand embarrassment right now. 🙃

    That's 100% fine no matter where we are. I don't expect someone to go all-out on a first date.

    Totally depends on the atmosphere of the date.

    Seriously? Don't show up in flip-flops under ANY circumstances, except if we're going to the beach.

    I really don't mind. They probably mean it as a compliment.

    As long as it's not a comparison to their mom's appearance, I probably don't care.

    Yikes, no. Dealbreaker. Do not do this.

    How loud are they singing? Why do they keep singing if they don't know the words? Are they singing over our conversation? This feels weird. Bye.

    Gross and tasteless. If we don't have a rapport with each other already, these comments aren't welcome on a first date.

    It depends how and why they're mentioning their ex. This can go either way.

    Nah, three times is too many in any situation. This isn't gonna work.
