Going on a first date with a potential romantic partner is always fun and exciting, but sometimes that's only before you go on it. Watch as young men and women from around the world get together and share their experiences of what immediately caused red flags for them when they went out with someone that just wasn't for them.

It's always interesting to see people from different countries and cultures share their life experiences because no matter how far apart we may live from each other and regardless of the sometimes vastly different social norms and standards, we all deal with the same basic wants and needs; and of course, the dating game is all about that. 

The YouTube channel Dating Without Borders got together young men from Italy, Germany, Brazil, France, Canada, and China as well as women from China, Russia, Germany, Cameroon, Taiwan/Japan, and Venezuela to share with the world the deal breakers they encountered and the red flags that would go up if anyone did this on a first date with them. Most of the time, they all agree, as certain behavior is not cool not matter where you're from. But we're all a little bit different, which makes diversity so cool. When the young Chinese man explains his disdain for women who smoke a cigarette in front of him and blow the fumes in his face, the French dude says, "It's not a red flag. It means . . . "

Anyway, without further ado, here are what constitutes red flags on first dates for men and women from around the world. Anything you'd add if you took part in this video?
