When on a first date with someone you are really getting to know, you don't have to spill everything about yourself but that doesn't mean you should be fake or be uncomfortable. Since both sexes are seeking to impress each other  on that date, it is easy to fall out of line and be phony about so many things.

Julia Austin of Madame Noire lists these ways you could be showing off your fake side in a bid to make a love connection.

  1. Arguing about something you aren't passionate about: When your date brings up a hot topic in politics or just something going on in the world, you take a very passionate stance on the matter. In reality, you really haven’t been following it. In fact, you do a quick Google search on your phone when your date is in the bathroom so you have something to say.

  2. Pretending you care about partying: He’s telling you crazy stories about his penchant for partying. You don’t want to seem boring so you pull out some old wild story about a night you had too much to drink. But truthfully, you only have that one story to tell because you don’t really like partying that much.

  3. Acting financially stable: Your date is going so well that the two of you start planning other dates. He talks about planning a group ski trip with your friends and his. You say you’re all in, but really, you’re kind of broke and you know you can’t afford all that.

  4. Being totally agreeable: Your date says something you find a little egotistical, rude, or something you just don’t agree with. You laugh it off because you don’t want to be argumentative on a first date.
