something interesting....

Ok people. Worst date ever, best date ever stories...anyone want to share?

I'll start. Let's see I once went out with a guy who took me to Alien 3 - this was a while ago - and grossed me out. Then we got in the care and I think "She shook me all night long" by ACDC was on and I was like 14 so that freaked me out.

Best date ever. Hmmm. I don't think I've had one yet. What does that mean? LOL.

Your turn.....

Hmmm...for once I don't really have an answer. Not really something I know much about. Going out on a date is what you do when you are trying to woo someone. Once you're a couple I don't consider it a date anymore. I've never really had many dates then. Always seemed like one day I was friends with someone and next day we were a couple and I was left with no idea of how it happened.

I do recall one time though that I could kind of say might have been my best and worst all rolled into one. Was down in Florida working at Disney. Typhoon Lagoon was closed for a month for maintenance so I was working at the Magic Kingdom. It was my first day there so they were showing me around and I came up to one of the outside carts that I was going to be working at. I was amazed to see the girl working there was someone I had met a year before when I'd worked at Disney on the college program for the summer. What was more amazing was she was roommates with a girl I was working with at Typhoon Lagoon who I found interesting although hadn't really considered asking her out.

I come home from work and get a phone call. It was the girl I worked with at Typhoon Lagoon and she was wanted to know if I wanted to go out with her and her roommates. I said sure...what the heck. Drive over to her apartment and ride with them out. What made the date so bad? Well I'd left the sunroof open in my Toyota Celica and it started to pour down rain while we were out. It was Florida afterall. I spent most of the night just thinking about my car being filled with water.

What made it such a great night? Well one point during the night the girl pointed to some guy and said he was the best friend of her just recent ex-bf. She started hanging all over me and claimed it was because she wanted this other guy to see and go tell her ex. I of course had fun pushing her away and pretending like I didn't want her hanging all over me. I kept saying she was drunk and I wasn't that way. When we got back to her apartment, sure enough my car was soaked. She didn't want me to drive home in the rain so she told me to stay there. No nothing happened(only because I didn't want it too. She turned out to be a wild girl that I didn't know). We watched movies until she fell asleep. We were pretty much together for the next 2 years. Course looking back, the entire date seems like the worst date ever since I don't have happy thoughts of her anymore.

hey rabbit, ou know i have read these kinds of questions before and always been stumped, and here i am reading your post and i'm still stumped. coming from a small town, we never really 'dated' but instead mutually decided , after much drinking, that we should fuck. ahh small town living. anyway, i guess i never really got into the dating thing, more like pick ups that turned into girlfriends. the few 'dates' i have had were generally ok but nothing special...i think its probobly pretty rare to have a great first date...wait, i take that back, i once had a first date that let me give her a pearl necklace..i can't believe i almost forgot that, but its true.

maybe we should change from best date ever to "what's the best date you've had."

I'd have to say the best date I had turned 180 degrees. I was fresh out of highschool (summer after) and ran into this girl I used to chase all through highschool. She had a boyfriend who was in the military and always gone; I was friends with the guy.. Well I'll just say I had nothing against him.

Anyway, we sat and talked and stuff. I could see the sparkle in her eye, as I'm sure she could have seen the sparkle in mine. I asked if I could take her on a friendly date sometime that week. She said sure, but she was still with Kevin and would talk to him about it.

He said sure, so I picked her up from her house later that week. It was completely pleutonic, no hand holding or anything, just 2 friends together. On our way to Orange Park, FL, we passed a few businesses on hwy 17 that we made jokes about and stuff. We ate at Red Lobster and then went to the OP mall and watched a movie (don't recall what it was). It was dark and we had flipped up the arm rest between us so we could be more comfortable.

I moved my arm to do something and I grazed across her upper thigh (she was wearing a skirt) and I apologized and she smiled and said it was ok, and grabbed my hand to hold it. I was a little confused at the time, but I went along. Later on in the movie, the sly little fox, she worked her way sidways until she was laying against me.

After the movie we were arm and arm back to the truck to go back to town to take her home. We made more jokes about those businesses and you could tell we were getting a little more physical/touchy-feely.

Anyway, skip ahead. When we got back to her road, she pulled out these breath mints and asked if I wanted one, I said no. I waited a few seconds and said that I would like one of those mints. She reached for her purse and I said no, I'd like the one you already have out.

She giggled and spoke as if she was very interested, but never said no. Anyway, we pull up in her driveway and talked a little. I did have respect for her boyfriend Kevin, but I couldn't help it; I was crazy for this girl, always had been. I told her something to the effect of "I am not trying to start something, because I know you have a boyfriend, but I aim to get that mint." and we shared our very first kiss. My blood pressure jumped up 50x.

For other reasons, she soon left her boyfriend and we became official. Over the 3 years we were together we still made the same jokes about the businesses we passed on our first date. We are separated now and I am still crazy for that girl. I would go back to her in a heartbeat. Everytime I pass those businesses, I cant help but think of her.

    Quoting rm_rabbit8747:
    LOL....great answers. smiles. funny how so many people get stumped with this question - me included....guess we all need to work better at romance. I agree that most of my relationship - Jeep boy - have been more impromptu. Mutual attraction - friendship - sex - and WHAM your a couple. crazy how that happens.

    on another note I just got invited to my first threesome. don't know why but it struck me as strange. I was like - huh. really? don't know what I think about that - but it is intriguing. don't think it fits me though.
Huh? You mean there was suppose to be sex in between friendship and couple? Dammit I knew I was missing something!! Sonofa...

Boo to cupid guard or whateve the hell it's called that keeps people from sending emails

Worst date ... a few years ago I agreed to be a participant in a bachelor's auction that benefitted Hospice Care ... sounded fun and it was for a good cause. To my surprise I was "bought" by an attractive young lady ... cool. It was her responsibility to set up the date and she asked if dinner and then out to a club sounded ok and I said that sounded good. We had a good dinner ... good conversation ... everything going along just fine except that I thought she was putting away the wine rather quickly. She didn't seem to be as inebriated as I would have thought one would be after drinking at least 4 glasses of wine over dinner ... but ... ok, no problem. We decided that I would drive to a jazz club that she liked since I had not been drinking as heavily and that was fine with me. We get to the club and it was nice ... good music, nice atmosphere and not too loud that we couldn't talk. So, in the course of a few hours at the club I noticed that this girl could put away the alchohol and it was now beginning to show. People were starting to get annoyed with her and I was trying to convince her as politely as I could that it was time to leave ... keep in mind that this was our first date. She somehow got into an argument with a table full of guys at the table next to us and it wasn't long before I was reluctantly but inevitably drawn into the argument ... I'll spare you the details but it ended up that we were "forced" to leave the bar and now I had a torn shirt. OK ... now I'm not a happy camper ... lol ... so I mostly carry her to the car and am trying to not let her pass out or anything because I'm in a strange town, unfamiliar how to get her home safely because I'm definitely not taking her back to her car so that she can drive. About 5 minutes later she says ... "I feel sick so you better pull over" ... I say ... "open your window please and try not to throw up in the car". I had just gotten a new car that week ... a sports car that I had covetted for some time. Just as I was finding a good place to pull over she throws up ... half in the car and half out of it ... NICE. Now I have to figure out how to clean up a bucket full of puke ... being a new car there's not a thing in the trunk ... no loose rags or t-shirts thrown in the back seat from a recent workout ... nothing. I DO have my torn shirt though ... so I take my shirt off and clean up the puke as best I could and then throw the damn shirt away. Finally I get her home ... say my rapid good-byes ... don't call me, I'll call you ... and leave for home.

The next day I drive my car to a car wash and have it washed ... ok, the funny part ... about a month later I get the car out again and now it's warmer so I decide to put the top down and put the windows down ... no problem ... go do my thing, wind blowing in my hair enjoying the whole driving experience, right? I get home and put the top back up and then the windows ... CHUNKS came up out of the bowels of the window well and I almost chucked my cookies right then ... lol. I was always half scared that chunks would come up out of the window well while I had that car ... funny, huh?

You show me not w/ your true word
You are as flighty as a bird

You say you want to meet
You've never given me the greet

To you, is this is a game?
Is it to gain some fame?

Stop all of the talk
You better not balk

Let me hold your precious hand
together, we can walk through the sands...

...of time.

The worst date that I've had was the one that never took place w/ you... The best date will be the one that I do have w/ you when you decide to pick up the phone... Until then, cheers to you!

I did get that... I liked the idea of trading stories over wine better. You also said, last week, that we would get together this week one night. Oh well. I knew I should've put a in my comment. My pathetic attempt at poetry was supposed to be taken light heartedly.

In reviewing my life love history, I see that very few of them involved dating per se...most (but not all) were either just hanging out socially and enjoying each others company or friendships that
turned into more.

Some of the more memorable dates/non-dates/experiences include:
*Dinner dates with a very special woman. First dinner date she wore a black dress with cherries. On other dates, she wore grey sweat pants and a loose fitting top. Every date with her felt like a first date - the adrenaline rush of new love - every time.
*A dinner date with a single mom and her two daugthers - 8 months and 4 years old. I had a beauty and two cuties on that date.
*A neighbor. She was a single mom and I was a single dad. We developed a friendship that grew closer over time. We both had been celibate for a while. One day, I was feeling froggy, so I handed her a sealed envelope with some polaroids my ex-wife had taken. She knocked on my door that night...WOO HOO!!!
*Apparently I am just plain clueless when it comes to subtle
hints...because one date led me by the hand to my bedroom...the
non-subtle hints work better for me...LOL
*While not a member of the mile high club (yet), I am a member of the greyhound (bus) club...LOL
*Crusing the mall parking lot (in my younger days, that was the
thing to do in our little podunk town). There were a car full of
wild women in car and one of them yelled out "wanna get lucky"?
And I did!!! We dated for a little least until I
ran into my older sister at a party that my date invited me to.
My older sister proceeded to inform me that she was a third cousin.
So we only dated a few more times after that...LOL

Some of the less memorable dates include:
*Taking my date to a local bar of her choice. When we stepped into
the bar, about 3 or 4 guys started barking at my date. Needless to
say her beauty was inside and did not manifest itself physically.
