Get a taxi and down a few snifters of vodka

How exciting!!

I know it feels very scary though. I went on my first date since the other week, and I was very very nervous, but I felt more comfortable once we were out & I had a few drinks inside me!

You will be fine! Where is he taking you?

zippitippitoes Wed 22-Aug-07 18:26:37

which one is it..from the other thread?

i am fascinated by people's dating stories... and what are you doing with him?

RGPargy Wed 22-Aug-07 18:27:47

She shouldn't be doing ANYTHING on a first date!!

zippitippitoes Wed 22-Aug-07 18:32:30

no of course not

..i am having a virtual only relationship we are already in bed so i am forgetting

snowwonder Wed 22-Aug-07 18:42:26

oh i am not sure where we will be going i have got to txt him back when i find a moment to txt (keep him waiting for a bit)

he has asked me where i would like to go,

so what do people do on first dates, is cocktails down the river thames out the question?

zippitippitoes Wed 22-Aug-07 18:43:49

I've no idea

something where you have some potential distraction to talk about, cocktails sounds good

lifebeginstoday Wed 22-Aug-07 18:44:02

yaaayyy....I'm ridiculously excited for you! When are you going?

lifebeginstoday Wed 22-Aug-07 18:44:38

I mean, is it Saturday, the day your ex gets remarried?

TheMoistWorldOfSeptimusQuench Wed 22-Aug-07 18:46:37

Ooh exciting! Where did you meet him? What's he like?

Details, we need details...

snowwonder Wed 22-Aug-07 18:46:59

trouble is i am not in london, thats is just in my dreams..... we have a canal in milton keynes....

we are going sat night, i need to let him know a time and a place and he will be there..

i will be hunting for an outfit all day sat, so advice re outfit would be good,
i bought a lovely jacket in moonsoon sale which might actually make it out the bag for the occasion

snowwonder Wed 22-Aug-07 18:49:01

34 i am 31.....

last relationship was 9 years and his ex had children although not his, (dont know why they split)

he has the most adorably dog (although i dont really like dogs but his is stunning dog.. (if thats possible?????)

I went out for a drink & something to eat on my first date the other week, but he now wants to take me to the cinema, which isn't ideal as you don't really get a chance to talk to each other.

Where did you meet him? What's he like? Tell us more!

Pinkchampagne Wed 22-Aug-07 18:51:39

X posted! He sounds nice!

snowwonder Wed 22-Aug-07 18:54:28

i dont really know much about him apart from what i have just said.....

but i will tell you more after saturday...??

oh god thats if i make it and the b=nerves dont get the better of me...

PC i think cinema is fine for a second date not really for a first... where did you meet?

TheMoistWorldOfSeptimusQuench Wed 22-Aug-07 18:56:45

Lush sounds good!

So what's this jacket like?

I think you need to keep it casual (don't look as if you've made a lot of effort), but perhaps accentuate your best bits without being too obvious. The last thing you want is to feel uncomfortable or too exposed. What's the jacket like? Could you wear it with jeans, a pretty top & some wedges / nice boots?

snowwonder Wed 22-Aug-07 19:02:59

i need to get new jeans on saturday,

the jacket is the short style, light green linen with big white flowers embrioded(sp) all over, it is very nice and my first purchase in moonsoon for myself, I was walking through to the girls dept and spotted it,

was going to go to M&s to get a new white top to wear with it, and brown heel boots...? sound ok or not

TheMoistWorldOfSeptimusQuench Wed 22-Aug-07 19:07:18

Sounds lovely. I'm sure you'll look irresistable

Will you have time to do your nails and generally have a bit of a grooming session? Not that he'll notice, but I tend to feel more scrumptious if I know I've put a bit of legwork in, appearance-wise, before a date.

snowwonder Wed 22-Aug-07 19:09:38

have made an appt to get my eyebrows mowed on fri morning... as that always makes me feel tons better...

i have loads to do on sat as me and girls are going on hols on sunday and i also wanted to lay a new bathroom floor... and put wood chippings under the trampoline but i guess that can wait...

Pinkchampagne Wed 22-Aug-07 19:10:15

We met in the bar of a hotel in town, and we stayed there all night.

I couldn't even remember exactually what he looked like because I only met him once before, back in December, and I had a few drinks in my system at the time! (I was in contact with him via text, but wanted to wait until I had moved out before meeting up with him) So I was extra nervous before hand!

I went quite casual for the date. I wore jeans, a halter neck top & wedge shoes.

Where did you meet this lush man?

Pinkchampagne Wed 22-Aug-07 19:11:10

Your outfit sounds perfect!

snowwonder Wed 22-Aug-07 19:15:37

oh good thanks that is one thing less to worry about, He was at a bbq a few weeks ago that i was at but i didnt speak to him then... but he got my number and we have been txting emailing etc.....

I think things have just happened at the right time, i also went on a dating site and spoke to some guys and it gave me so much confidence about myself which has been severly laking since ex left me,,

lifebeginstoday Wed 22-Aug-07 19:22:19

Was it smouldering glances across the burgers?

Pinkchampagne Wed 22-Aug-07 19:23:25

It all sounds good! Go & enjoy yourself!
