So, I had a first date last night, chemistry was great and a second date was mentioned. April Fool's today so I thought I would send him a prank text this morning... maybe declaring my undying love and intentions to move in together next week? wink Any better ideas?!

Er I wouldn't play an April fool's joke on someoni had just met. But I hate being the butt of someone's joke, which is why I dislike April fools.

Not after one date. If I were him I'd have a sense of humour failure I'm afraid...

Yeah, do that OP I think that's a great idea, it'll be so funny.

And then come and tell us how there no second date...

A joke is fine, but NOT that!
I'd think, crazy clingy woman hiding behind a joke. It's just not funny, because some people are that psycho!!!

Definitely do it by text, not face-to-face.

Mmm.. really? I thought it would be so outlandish and ridiculous after just one date that no one could possibly take it seriously! Good thing I posted here first hmm

Shit! Just got taken in for the second time this morning and that's just in MNhmmconfused

I wouldn't. It sounds like an unhinged person masquerading as a joker.

I know you are joking but the seeds of doubt could make it backfire.

'Always a grain of truth in a "joke"' could be his reaction.

I cringed reading it, sorry OP.

Go for it, it shows what a wacky, zany kinda person you are.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Tue 01-Apr-14 08:28:22

Oh FFS, so is it a joke or not <confused>.

Aknowinggrin Tue 01-Apr-14 08:36:45

Well Drink it WAS a joke .... to him wink but thinking I'll refrain!

A lot of people don't like "pranks". It would be a bit risky, after one date.

SisterEmily Tue 01-Apr-14 09:35:28

I wouldn't, he might think you're being serious and assume you're a bunny boiler and then pretending it's an april fool joke to save face.

Aknowinggrin Tue 01-Apr-14 09:51:14

Thank you all. Definitely NOT sending anything to him!

Saved by MM.... wink

I hate pranks so if a guy I had had one date with tried a prank I'd bin him off immediately.
