Lets travel down memory lane

  1. I was thinking about vegas and her new adventure with dating and I thought it might be fun to recall our first date memories.

    Maybe even our worst date memories, ok just dating memories.

    I'll start. His name was Charles, the quarterback, I was the cheerleader, perfect!!!!!I thought he was sooooooo cute, he asked me to go out for pizza, I accepted. He picked me up in his parents Impala. He asked my parent permission, told them where we'd be and what time I'd be home. Those were the days. He was wearing corduroy jeans, they were tan. So was I, Mine were brown. OOOhhhhh! something in common.
    We had pizza, we talked, we laughed, then we went to the park, played on the swings and in the car. It was fun!!!!!:kiss
    I fell asleep with him on my mind and in my heart.:zzzzz

    Believe it or not, I do have a best date memory.

    It was my birthday, tall very deep deep voiced man. We were looking quite fetching that evening. He took me to my favorite restaurant for dinner, to my surprise, he had the waiters/waitresses sing "Happy Birthday" over a hot fudge brownie with vanilla ice cream. We left there and went dancing! Great live band playing Motown hits. Had an absolute ball! The band sang "Happy Birthday" to me. Went back to his place, he gave me a very beautiful birthday card and a wrapped gift - a gold necklace.

    Just the most wonderful birthday I had as an adult.

    This may sound like a bunch of bull, but I honestly do not have a wonderful date memory. I sat here and thought about it before I started typing and I can't think of a single good memory. I can't even think of a date, at least nothing like Vegas and Ursula describe. That's kinda sad.

    MollyMo, That is sad

    Hope that feeling doesn't last long, can you share a funny date, an unusual date, a terrible date? As long as it doesn't make you sad ((((((:kiss ))))))

    When did you last date?

    MollyMo - don't feel bad. The date I described was 2 years ago from a male friend at church. Wasn't a big sweeping romance, just one very nice date, best nice date I'd ever had. Much older guy (53 years old).

    I don't date. Never have.... probably never will. I do meet at movies and share some popcorn or let them come to the house and I ride with them someplace to have dinner but it is never a date. Call it a date and things get all weird. If guys get real nice and send flowers and stuff it freaks me out- can't take it. Guys can hang out with me we can be all comfy but anything that gets to seem like a permanent plan and he's outta there. Yes, I've had therapy and the poor psychiatrist kept trying but he never got through to me.

    Mattigan,

    Now tell me this then, what constitutes a date?


    I have argued this wil a male friend, who say they don't date. But getting together, dinner, movies, yadayadayada, sounds like a date to me.

    I do not have a normal dating life! Here's the story of the last 2 men who asked me out:

    Guy #1 Met him in the evenings hanging out by the pool. He asked me out after several evenings of chatting, but he was about 15 yrs. younger than me. Been there, done that, not gonna do that again, so, didn't go, but kept chatting at the pool in the evenings.

    Guy #2 Also met at the pool, but in the morning, after work, doing my morning laps. Talked a few times, went out to dinner a couple of times, he's a better age, in mid 50's. We got to talking about our families and.......


    You guessed it - he's the first guy's father!
    My life will never be normal!

    The really sad part is - that's not the strangest or worst - I'll post some others later. Good thing I have a well developed sense of humor.

    Ursula- I don't really know execpt that a "date" forbodes things to come and committment and being exclusively dependent and giving up control over my life and giving up power. I am never going to give a man that kind of power over me and it seems to all start with "just a date" so I won't do it. I had a horrible role model for this as a child and an equally bad experience as an adult ( and we didn't date, either - so that kinda puts a hole in my reasoning there). It might be a date to someone but if I think of it as a date- I can't go, just can't make myself do it. Too much pressure and it's not fun. I want to go throw up.

    I can't do date stuff. I cannot flirt , I can't even make myself wear red underwear- it's an image I don't feel I can live up to.

    I heard someone say that to them dating was hope overcoming experiences and I guess I have no hope and a lot of bad experiences.
