Are you making this mistake on your first date?

Women say no to a second date for many reasons but here are top seven mistakes that a turn off and keep them away from a man for good.
Talking about money: This conversation should take place after two people are together for a very long time. No one likes a show off and nor does anyone want to know how dear money is to you.
Spending too much time on the phone: This is the worst thing men can do if they’re on a first date or even with a group of friends. Spending time on the phone means that you don’t care about the other person’s presence and this never goes down well with a potential girlfriend.
Talking about the ex: If you’re on a first date, chances are that you want a fresh start. So why cling to the past? Women often feel insecure when men bring up their ex and they feel like they're better without it.
Showing up badly dressed: Men could get away with tardy clothes in their teenage but women do look for well dressed men as they grow older. There’s no excuse for turning up badly dressed when it takes less than 5 minutes to groom yourself.
Not having a plan: Men who show up for the first date without a plan can be a big turn off. Traditionally, men take charge of the date, offer to pick up the girl, pay the bill and make an initiative. It’s not like women want to be dominated, but these gestures show a man is interested in making an impression. If a guy doesn’t do any of this, women walk away because they think he’s lazy and nonchalant.
Introducing controversial topics as conversation starters: No one wants to discuss religion, politics or Apple versus Samsung. Men who keep the conversation very geeky and don’t ask a girl about her life may not find themselves sealing a second date.
