My H and I were talking about our first date the other day( it has been 10years). It got me to thinking what other's first date was like.
Our first date was at The Dead Goat Saloon for an Inflames show. We spent the time listening to the band and hanging out with a few friends. I think it was exciting for me because I never went to small bars and had no idea at the time who Inflames was, now I am a fan, and actually like seeing small shows. I do wish that there had been that one on one romantic date ideal but I would not change it for a thing.
Where was your first date with your s/so and what do you think about it now??
I was picking up my car from the service center. He was my service adviser and my car had ISSUES that month. SO...I went to get my car, he asked what i was doing that night, I said, "hanging out with you." and he said he was off at 7 Almost poetic how that happened. I'd liked him for a couple months..all from taking my car in.
We met after his work at a pub and had a drink or two...talked for two hours and it went so well, he asked if I wanted to get dinner up the street at a mexican place. We ate and talked until 2am. Holy crap. We didn't want to go home.
He dropped me off (I had taken my car home and took the bus back to santa monica ..5 minute ride) and dind't kiss me LOL He later said he wanted to take it slow because he really liked me. We had our second date the next night...and hung out every night since.
I look back and smile. It was just an awesome night. Meeting him changed my life.
We still talk about our first date. I remember well. He took me to a chain restaurant known for its ribs. I didn't want to get all messy in front of him eating baby back ribs on our first date so I ordered their grilled southwestern chicken fillet.
Afterwards we went to see a movie but we were late because we spent so much time talking at the restaurant. He told me later he was wondering why I would go with him to a rib joint to eat chicken breast. He still tells me, when you go to a well known rib chain you order what they're known for.
H and I met at a bar that's inside a restaurant. We were both there alone, ended up sitting next to each other and talking the whole night. I noticed how nice his hands were (strong, meaty, the working-with-hands type - very masculine). I also noticed his calf muscles when he went to the bathroom! I was very attracted to him so say the least. Towards the end of the evening (this was on a Wednesday night), he asked if he could cook dinner for me on Friday night. At the end of the night, was our first kiss and it was awesome!
Our first date was at a jack in the box we met out there during our lunch hour. I remember ordering food and we were so nervous we couldn't eat. Then as we sat across from each other we texted back and forth for some reason we were too nervous to talk to each other LOL.
Then as we left his car overheated and I helped him fix it so he could get to work. He had mentioned something about dating rules and how he wasn't suppose to call me the night he got my number but that he didn't want to wait 3 days, so I walked up to him and we kissed. He texted me the minute he got back to work.
We go back to our pub often. The kids know we had our first date there. I still remember sitting at the bar, wondering if I could get closer.
After he dropped me off, we texted a bit before bed and randomly he texted, 'BTW, ur F'in HOT!" Never had a guy say that before.
Hmm... It takes me a little thinking to remember the first "together" event that rightly would be called a date. We met in college and spent quite a few years in each other's regular company, but perhaps the first really date-like outing was a school-sponsored formal dinner/dance event we went to together. We talked and danced together, but we were both quite shy about each other, so we just shared a big hug at the end. Our first kiss was later, over a chemistry study session in my dorm room (lol, seriously).
Remember it well. We were just teenagers at the time. We went to see Steel Magnolias and had dinner afterwards at a local steakhouse. It was fairly short because we were instructed by her mom to get home as soon as we were done eating.
