    Is this a bizarre topic for a first date? Should I stay away?

    So I recently went on a first date with a guy that seems great but he made a weird comment should I stay away?
    Basically, he told me right off the bat that he has hearing loss and I was ok with it but then when I saw him in person he went on a rant about how his doctors say that he has noise induced hearing loss but he feels that his hearing loss was actually caused by harmful medications/chemicals that they (his doctors) gave him? I didn’t know how to respond so I just awkwardly said well maybe you have both noise induced hearing loss and hearing loss from the harmful medications/chemicals?
    I don’t know…it was just weird for a first date right? Should I stay away?

    Move on!
    The purpose of date is for both people to get to know each other better.
    If one person is simply talking about himself especially on a first date that’s a “red flag”. (Possibly narcissistic)
    Most people also don’t want to talk about their “problems” or “challenges” when they’re looking to impress someone.
    Anyone going on a “rant” during a first date is probably not very romantic or they’re not romantically interested in (you).
