Planning your wardrobe for a first date is frustrating, even a little scary. You want to make a good impression, and in your desire to do so, it's not uncommon to choose clothing that you really shouldn't be wearing.

Of all the clothes to not wear on a first date, shirts – especially tee shirts – with messages on them are probably the first verboten choice. Whether it's a funny message or a political message, you want to avoid advertising either your beliefs or your sense of humor on your clothing.
