First dates can be weird—take it from the bartenders who have seen them all. Now, between all of the normal worries like dressing appropriately and not saying something awkward, you also have to think about your drink order, according to a survey by a dating app called Trueview.
The survey found that if you do nothing else, make sure you don’t order a shot on the first date. More than 25 percent of people found it the most unattractive drink someone could order, giving you a one in four chance of sinking a first impression right off the bat. After that order, the worst was a pint of beer or cider. Things you should consider ordering? Wine, cocktails and Highballs.
Trueview is a dating app based in the U.K. that bills itself as an alternative to the shallow profiles on other dating apps. While it’s based across the pond, the 1,000-person survey had some similar findings as Supercall’s own questioning of first date drinking faux pas.
