For fun: what words or phrases would you not use on a date?

Asked by janbb (63035points) December 10th, 2015

That is to say, definitely off-putting. I was thinking “post-nasal drip” is probably one of the most unromantic phrases in the English language.

“My biggest problem with my ex…..” would be at the top of the list along with blow by blow accounts of your recent health problems :)

Calling your mother “Mommy” is unwise. Also, do not discuss your STDs.

Or advertise the lack thereof. Seems to raise suspicion.

CWOTUS's avatar

“that bitch”
references to “chicks”, “broads” and “hos”
“What happened to your hair?”
“Where did you get that dress?” Or even better, “How long have you had that dress?”
“Are you color-blind?”

“You don’t look at all like your photo,” unless that is followed up immediately and unmistakably by “You look so much better! And it was a good photo, too!” (I actually got away with that once, but you really do need to make the juxtaposition quick and unambiguous.)

I had the best poop this morning.

@longgone I disagree. I ask about STDs before I meet the man. It is vitally important.

“I’ll order for you.”

@longgone Just a half an hour ago I wrote on Facebook I still call my mother Mommy sometimes. Lol. There is a show in America called DC Cupcakes about two Greek-American sisters who own a very successful cupcake business and they call their mom Mommy, and I was watching it earlier this evening.

How’d you like to meet my mother? She lives in that old two-story house back up there behind our motel.

My first baby was born butt first, and the second I was in labor 56 hours. You’d think with all that trouble I would at least get an orgasm once trying to make them.

@JLeslie

Somehow a woman calling her mother Mommy isn’t nearly as off-putting as a man doing it.

Think Ronald Reagan and Nancy :)

JLeslie's avatar

@Buttonstc I guess that’s true. Although, if a man used mommy to his mom when talking to her, or more specifically answering her, it wouldn’t be very weird necessarily, but in conversation about her it would be. I could see my husband reassuring his mom about something she is worried about and using mommy. I can’t really think whether he actually does it or not, but with me he sometimes uses my nickname with a y (my name shortened) when he’s trying to slow me down when I’m worked up. Only about 6 people in the world ever have used my name shortened like that, I don’t go by it. I know my exboyfriend sometimes used popi when talking to his dad. It wasn’t odd at all, but it was when talking directly to him.

The only women I know who use mommy are Jewish and now these Greek girls on TV. Maybe other people do too, but it seems to be an ethnic thing possibly. If I think about it more I use it when I’m talking to other family members, to my mom directly, but not friends or strangers. Maybe a lot of people do that and I’m not aware of it, because I’m not family. I do have one specific girlfriend who talks about her mom to me and says mommy, but no other friends do.

Here2_4's avatar

I can’t wait for you to meet my family. My mother will love you. I have eight brothers, well, two brothers, and six half brothers. Mother had three boys when she was married to her second husband, two boys and a girl with this marriage. Daddy has three kids with his new wife, one boy and two girls. We are all a big happy family. Funny, all three of my mother’s husbands are cops. They didn’t know each other before she met them, but they have a lot in common, and now they are all friends. You will love all of us getting together. You will fit right in. It always feels so safe, with all those cops around. My family thinks I should marry a cop, but I think what you do is fine.

longgone's avatar

@Hawaii_Jake I agree it needs to be discussed, but the topic does tend to be off-putting. I wouldn’t raise it over dinner in a nice restaurant.

No offense, but…

Those people that claim to have peanut allergies are just full of bullshi*t! Wah, wah, wah! They’re just a buncha whiners.

Do you mind if we stop by my buddy’s house before we eat? I gotta pick up some (fill in the blank mood enhancer here____).

Can you sign this receipt? I’m gonna write this dinner off on my taxes. Otherwise, I’da just taken you to McDonalds.

I don’t eat any fruits or vegetables.

You’re not one of those crazy cat people are ya?

I don’t tip. I think people should earn a living wage. If the waiter isn’t doing his job, he’s not going to get a raise. That’s not my fault.

I don’t care where we eat as long as it’s not one of those places that serves that tofu crap.

Do you mind if we stop at the gas station before we eat? I gotta take a dump and get some Skoll.
