So, I get set up with this girl (via a girl I went to grad school with).

I suggest a small intimate bar/restaurant.

I beat the girl there.

Walk in...the first person I see in this tiny restaurant...is a girl I used to date...who is on a date.

Awesome.

Seriously?

Good thing I had a couple of drinks beforehand (by good thing I mean...stupid).

This girl turns out to be really f'ing hot (she's a reporter for NBC).

Way beyond my league. But super cool and a lot of fun.

But really...little unnerving to be sharing the same bar/restaurant with an ex.

Anyone else have any good/bad/terrible first date stories?

I picked a girl up from her parents house, back in the day.

I met the mother for a second, and she says to me: "we just changed her medication, so she should be fine now"


That was our second, and last date.


Also, why is she out of your league?

did you get another date?
Who knows. She left me with a "you should call/email me" type closure.

Then I get an email from the other girl..."wouldn't you rather be f'ing me" (this being crazy redhead, as pictured in sno drift thread)

Sometimes I long for the normalcy/boriningness of being in a committed relationship.

my blind date guide to success:
1. blind dates only acceptable from people your age who will talk you up like nobody's business.
2. talk on the phone extensively (gets 'em all restless to finally meet you)
3. when she keeps dropping hints to finally meet, make her wait a couple of more days still.
4. never a lunch date. drinks after dinner. avoids paying for dinner, darkness is our friend, and liquor is plentiful.

Six years older. Hot. Has her shit together.

Never talked to her on the phone. Exchanged two emails. Her good friend talked me up...apparently.

But I had fun, so I guess that is all that matters.

She also told me I had nice jeans. :mrgreen:

blind dates are inherently composed of needy women. she is not out of your league. she's as needy as the rest of them. just avoid putting her on a pedestal.

That was the thing. She wasn't need at all! Which I totally expected. Really had her shit together.

If I had my shit together, I would totally pursue her.

Ouch, blind dates are tough, they either go great and the next morning your looking for your other sock or you wish she was a mute before the appetizer arrives.

I suggest a small intimate bar/restaurant.
Fail. Knowing you, you picked place that only serves beer and wine.

I beat the girl there.
Also fail, depending on several factors.

Walk in...the first person I see in this tiny restaurant...is a girl I used to date...who is on a date.
Hopefully your date is hotter than your ex, although you got their first so you already look like a tool regardless of your blind dates potential hotness.

No, not at all.

Seriously?

Well played, always pregame and have few beforehand for "social lubrication."

Win, make sure to make eye contact with your ex.

Way beyond my league. But super cool and a lot of fun.
Don't forget your arrogant and have a cast on your foot.

But really...little unnerving to be sharing the same bar/restaurant with an ex.
Yes, but your date is hotter, get over it. (never saw it coming)

Anyone else have any good/bad/terrible first date stories?
No, I am a closer.

F'ing dying at adouglas's post.


Coffee is for closers. I am having no coffee.


We went to the Sample Room. Big win. You can't deny that place.

adouglas great post!

i approach all dates as a negotiation. keep analyzing what she needs to hear. this is great advice given to me by my bro-in-law the litigator.

sometimes, i have to drop the fact that i posed nude in art college in nyc. usually gets em by surprise and very curious.

does she know that you're an underwear model?
