What not to say on a date

The last few years I've been blessed to go on some really great dates. However, that wasn't always the case. Back in my days of dating, post high school I went on some horrendous dates. I mean really bad dates! Here's an example of one:
My 3rd year of college, I had met this really nice guy in one of my classes. We ended up being in multiple classes together throughout the year and actually became friends. The school year ended and over the summer we continued to stay in contact. When my 4th year of college started, we were still talking non stop. We decided to actually go out on a date. It was actually really nice. 
I had moved into a new place with some fellow sorority sisters and decided to invite him over to watch a movie and hang out. By this point we had gone on a few dates and it felt like we were "dating". 
He came over to the apartment and we ended up watching the movie 8 mile. Haha, yes I know, very bad movie choice. During the whole movie I could tell he was trying to make little moves but didn't really know if he should. At the end of the movie we ended up talking. During our conversation the frustration of not knowing what we were came out: "I need to know what we're doing because I have other options!"

Um...boys and girls. Never, ever say that to someone. That's a date killer and a relationship ender. Wouldn't you agree?

Okay so first off 8 mile takes me back. That is the movie I watched the night I met my husband! LOL we talked through the whole movie and had to rewatch it!

Other than that... I would say "options" not a correct word placement! LOL, makes you wonder where and Einstein is now...

Awful. But a guy actually said something like that to me ("I just don't know if I'm ready to date you exclusively") and then I ended up dating him 3 years and surprise surprise, it didn't work out. Men are so dumb sometimes!
