    A guy I just met had just gone on a game show that I will be going on in a month and our conversation goes like this:

    I say - I've never been on a game show and it looks like so much fun so I can't wait to experience it.

    He says - Yeah, I had/have never been either. But it was definitely fun.

    Shouldn't it be had since he's already went on?

    Yes, it should be "had".

    I had never been on one before either.

    If he said "I have never been on one either", he would be lying because he has been on a game show.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
