Single Brits warned that mentioning mum or dad on first dates could be a turn-off

Mentioning your mum or dad on a first date could scupper your chances of ­finding love, a survey found.

But while a third of men say hearing their date talk about her mother would be a turn-off, only one in five women would hate to be told about his dad.

The biggest mood killer for both sexes is the word “moist” – with half of women and four in 10 men saying it would spoil a romantic evening.
