10 Things You Hear on a First Date and What They Really Mean

If you’re in your 20s and 30s, single and living in Cairo, then you’re living in the dating jungle we all play in, meeting various people and starting relationships with that hope to find “the one”.

After a while, you start to understand more and more about human behavior. Some lines that might have worked on you when you were just a beginner won’t work on you after you’ve gained the experience of the jungle.

To help you out, here’s a collection of experiences from people in my circle that will make you a mind reader on that first date.


1. Who are you texting?

I have trust issues.



2. I consider myself pretty open minded.

I’m a person who expects everybody around me to accept me; on the other hand, I never accept anybody different than me.



3. I’m kind of between jobs.

I’ve been unemployed for a while and I may want you to pay the check for me.



4. I love traveling to Taba and Neweiba3 to see the ‘real’ Egypt.

I go there for the weed, drinking and the chance to try and hook up with some girls.

Checking out the view… Oh yea, and the beach is nice, too.


5. I think love is sacred and doesn’t come easy.

I have commitment issues.



6. I don’t care what people think.

I probably left my house wearing a long, baggy skirt and changed in the car into these hot shorts.



7. Let’s not talk about past relationships.

I screwed up horribly and I’m probably not over my ex – AKA you’re just a rebound.



8. What’s your impression of me?

I have low self-esteem and I’m kind of an attention seeker.



9. What are you doing later tonight?

I’m in it for a one night thing and you will probably never hear from me again.



10. Do you wanna do this again?

I think I liked you, but I also think I screwed up and you hate me.



Now you’re armed. Next time you’re in the jungle, don’t take any BS from any one!


WE SAID THIS: Good luck out there!
