Unless Cupid is flying in your favor, first dates can be rocky. But you're in luck, fellas, because Love Broker's Lori Zaslow is here to smooth out the top three mistakes men make during these initial get-to-know-you encounters. Ready for your blooper reel? 

First, step away from the iPhone and nobody gets dumped. "They're on their Blackberry, or they're thinking about work, or thinking about a past relationship, rather than just being in the moment," Lori tells Celebuzz about the distraction no-nos.

Next, break man law and keep an open mind throughout the date. "Men really do work outside in and they're much more visual creatures, which is fine and fair," adds the matchmaker and Project Soulmate co-founder. "But I think sometimes, they don't give a second chance like a woman would. They cut it off right then and there."

Harsh, guys, harsh. Finally, go ahead and put yourselves out there. With big risk comes big reward, right? "[Men are] so much more afraid of rejection that they don't always respond with their emotions," Lori continues. "They might not let a girl back."
