Going on a first date can be nerve-wracking. What do you say? How should you act?

You can ask your friends, or you can ask experts. But you could also look to shows like The Bachelor for tips.

The show now has a Japanese edition (which will air in Singapore!), and the first-ever Japanese Bachelor, Hirotake Kubo, had the tall task of meeting 20 women in one night, getting to know them over the course of several weeks and trying to decipher who his one true love could be.


So if anyone knows what great first dates look like, it would probably be Hirotake.

Here are several tips we’ve gleaned from the show on what not to do during your first dates.

The Bachelor Japan premieres on TLC (SingTel TV Channel 254) on 19 September, 9pm.
