The internet is full of advice on what to do, what to say, what to wear and where to go, but there is very little on what NOT to say. We spoke to a selection of Ukrainian ladies to find out what the worst topics of conversion on a first date are.
Everyone knows that politics is one of those conversations that you don’t bring up. There are too many varying opinions. Too much passion and what started out as a simple passing comment could easily escalate into an argument of epic proportions. When speaking with Ukrainian and Russian women, you need to pace yourself. It is important to understand that their countries have suffered years of political and social turmoil and bringing up your opinion on a leader, policy, or political viewpoint could be construed as highly and deeply offensive.
Let us be honest; sex is a fundamental aspect of any relationship, and on a basic level, it is what we as humans are programmed to do. That does not mean that it is appropriate to bring it up on a first date. No woman wants to know the ins and outs of your sexual history. Nor does she want to be informed of the extent of your colourful imagination. Be polite and respectful at all times and if you cannot keep your mind out of the gutter, ensure your lips remain sealed.
Religion is a tricky subject and one that can cause deep offence and irreparable damage to a person with just one slip of the tongue. An individual’s religious beliefs are something inherently personal to them. They often are a direct reflection of their moral code, upbringing and family history. Be aware that if you disagree with her, or rubbish her religious view, you aren’t only insulting your date, but potentially her whole family as well.
So there you have it, the top three worst topics of conversation for a first date. They may seem like interesting, thought provoking and controversial conversation starters. However, we highly recommend waiting until you know each other a bit more before broaching them.
