Dating is weird. It's basically a job interview where you're both interviewing the other for the position of long-term (or short-term) boning. And, similar to a job interview, there are questions that are appropriate to ask and questions that aren't. "Where are you from?" and "what do you do for work?" and "do you own a MAGA hat?" are pretty standard for a first date. But then there are questions that are straight-up inappropriate for someone you've only just met. Questions like "how much money do you make?" and "oh, you make six figures and regularly donate to Planned Parenthood—will you marry me?" should be avoided, as difficult as that may be. There are rules about first date etiquette. But not everyone follows them.
Let these first date faux pas be a lesson to us alll.
