What Not To Mention On A First Date (Even If It's The Truth)

There's something involving pigs.

Let’s face it: no one likes a first date. 

While there are many reasons, one of the biggest concerns is not knowing what the perimeters are: how much to reveal and not reveal. 

Here, Redditors reveal some fairly universal things they wouldn’t reveal about themselves on a first date (mainly because it went down like a lead balloon the first time they said it).
