Single dating guru reveals one of the things men and women should NEVER say on a first date – and why it put her off straight away
- Jana Hocking went on a second date with a man because he was ‘hot’
- The radio host said everything was going well until he brought up his arrests
- She grilled him on the charges and he admitted to ‘accidental’ kidnapping
- Another arrest was for something even ‘darker’ that Jana did not disclose
- The experience left her wondering if there are some things better left unsaid
An unlucky-in-love radio producer believes it is better to keep past experiences that no longer represent who you are as a person to yourself in the early days of dating.
‘Perennially single’ Jana Hocking recently recounted her second date with an attractive man which quickly turned sour when he revealed he had been arrested – twice.
When the 36-year-old, who works at Sydney’s Triple M station, grilled her date about the charges, he admitted he to ‘accidentally’ kidnapping someone and another more sinister offence that Jana preferred not to disclose.
She said the experience left her wondering if there are some things better left unsaid until you get to know someone on a level deeper than small talk.

In her latest column for news.com.au, Jana revealed she had only agreed to a second date because the man was ‘hot’.
She said all was going ‘swimmingly’ until he brought up his recent arrests.
The man explained he had been mistakenly booked for kidnapping while walking home from a costume party, dressed as a commando with a fake gun and a real knife.
Following an argument with a man waiting at a bus stop, Jana’s date said he ‘jokingly’ grabbed the commuter around the neck and dragged him around the corner ‘to spook him’.

He said a police car was waiting for him when he got home and he was taken to spend a night in a cell. But the criminal revelations didn’t stop there.
‘As I looked at him with a slightly mortified look, he chuckled and goes “yeah so that was the first time”,’ Jana recalled.
She said the second incident is ‘slightly darker’ and did not disclose any further details.

While Jana said she was glad her date had told her about his indiscretions so she could avoid wasting any more time on him, she couldn’t help but wonder if there are some things you should keep to yourself.
‘Without doubt I have done some mighty dumb things in my life, but do I want to put it on a notice board and parade it about for everyone to see?’ she wrote.
Jana encouraged singles to learn a lesson from her story.
Sure, you may be having a great conversation and feel comfortable to share some of your life experiences. However, some silly things we’ve done in the past should stay exactly there. In the past,’ she said.
