I've just plucked up the courage to do internet dating after 4 years of being single.

I have a date tomorrow supposedly but he hasn't made any arrangements re a time just a suggestion of where we go and what we do.

I don't want to push it in case he isn't interested so do I just leave it and wait to see if he contacts me?

I hate this!

Sorry I have just seen this! Have you been texting him / talking? Just say something like, "so are we still on for tomorrow? What time do you want to meet?"

Ooh I'm excited on your behalf, I can't remember the last date I went on! Let me know how it goes!

I agree with silly

deerkitty Wed 16-Apr-14 21:36:46

No online. Will do it now and if I don't hear back then it's a no go.

deerkitty Wed 16-Apr-14 21:49:43

Shit ok it's on! What do I wear?

sillymillyb Wed 16-Apr-14 21:54:51


Jeans, nice top and heels?

Depends where you are going and what kind of time?

Minime85 Wed 16-Apr-14 22:22:45

yep, jeans heels and a nice top. if just a drink maybe more of a casual top than dressy. good luck smile

Pub after work so work clothes.

Bananasandnutella Wed 16-Apr-14 22:58:47

Well I'd maybe spruce lips and eye lashes after work and maybe change a piece of clothing? If it's literally just a drink straight from work you might feel too dressy in nice heels? But then if it's a night is still young....who knows wink

Make sure you smell nice (with perfume I mean). Guysalways comment on perfume.
Just try to relax and be yourself. Im excited for you :0)

Ok am wearing:

Dress that falls just above knee by itself is quite dressy but in wearing a little black cardigan on top buttoned up so it looks more like a skirt .

Black tights, ankle boots with a heel.

Perfume check
Make up bag check
Clean pants check

Will keep you updated via live feed tonight xx

Clean pants grin Oh aye wink

Have a great time - let us know how it goes.

deerkitty Thu 17-Apr-14 22:42:37

Hmm on way home. Sober..

Cupid5tunt Thu 17-Apr-14 22:57:27

The clean pants jinxed you! I'm assuming it wasn't great?

Minime85 Thu 17-Apr-14 23:09:20

not good then?

deerkitty Thu 17-Apr-14 23:13:38

It was fine and pleasant. I don't know what I was expecting.

Practice maybe?

deerkitty Thu 17-Apr-14 23:14:02


That's the word I was looking for.

Cupid5tunt Thu 17-Apr-14 23:22:30

Definitely a practice date. Could be worse, I met a guy couple of weeks ago seemed lovely, we arranged a date for next week and he's gone borderline stalker! So now no date, call screening and text avoidance grin
