(#PrincessSophia) How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Paramount Pictures

Dating can be hard. Dating in New York City can be even harder. Due to obsessive societal fixation on (conscious) coupling and uncoupling you may find your single self at a loss. But have no fear because social media always pulls through! Save your money and go without that millionaire matchmaker! Simply search #FiveWordsToRuinADate on Twitter and absorb the wisdom of the general public. Not exactly the advice you’d get from Steve Wilkos, but it will do.

Word to the wise, when picking the location for a date, opt for something soothing to the stomach on a date to ensure that these five little words never need to be said. Are you a fan of Indian food? Too bad.

Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 12.47.34 PM3. Not five words, but ok. You may have stalked your date on Instagram before meeting IRL. In our modern, techy world, social media plays a huge part in the dating scene. A filter can go a long way, and if the person you’re sitting across from looks a little less Valencia than you thought, keep your mouth shut.

Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 12.44.29 PM5. It is very important not to comment on your date’s eating habits. Just because you don’t like mayo does not mean they don’t! The person you’re going on a date with is not expecting to go on a date with a nutritionist (even if you are one, ain’t nobody got time for that).
