..... and that is it, I have a date! We are going out for Sunday lunch.

Will u wear a dress or jeans and a top?

What do I do? I haven't done this for so long, my ex never took me out, so I am nervous as hell!

Any advice please xx

I'm in the south and it's scorching hot so I'd wear a dress and flat sandals/nice flip flops. Only if you're comfortable in a dress though. If not, jeans. You have to be comfortable.

Can you take photos of the options?

Also, how exciting! How did this come about?

Wear whatever you are most comfortable in! Just be yourself. I was super nervous on my first date after my break up but it turned out fine. Have fun hope it goes well x

And if it is hot where you are, keep the makeup minimal and go for the sunkissed look instead. Maybe even hair up?
Nothing worse than sweat beads to wreck a good contour!

Dress definitely

Yeah I have like a yellow type dress from Boohoo, I had a lovely black dress on last night when I was out with work, but he's seen me in that.

I am in the North, we got talking on FB as I know his brother, he's 4 years younger too!

It is scorching here. I have a feeling I might not go, so I am forcing myself to go.
It's only lunch

You have to go, you already have the yellow dress.

Oh of course go 👏👏👏

The yellow dress! And go! Not going would be not fair on him or you.

And jeans will be far to hot.

Correction: Too hot. I can’t type.

Do not put pressure on yourself,
Look at it as possibly making a new friend.
Good luck

I have asked if he fancies going to the beach instead, it's too nice to sit in 😍

Nice dress. Beach. Sounds fab - have a great time

gingerface40 Sun 18-Jul-21 13:18:24

Well he's text this morning to say where and when replied and haven't heard anything. Suppose to be meeting at 4. Is this the brush off?

What was his excuse?

gingerface40 Sun 18-Jul-21 16:47:54

Haven't even got on! It's the good old ghost again!

Christ he was all over it last night! Probably scared!

What an arse!!! Why oh why do people do this, i know are taking it in good spirits but i think it's completely shit!!

Blossomandbee Sun 18-Jul-21 17:08:22

Are you sure he's not just gone to the place you said without replying to confirm?

Workinghardeveryday Sun 18-Jul-21 17:14:17

@gingerface40 lucky escape!! How very rude to not even txt!
Roll on Mr Right 😁, he will be there before you know it xx

gingerface40 Sun 18-Jul-21 17:22:03

Eeeh I've had a lad I was seeing about 6 month do the same, but he had an avoidant personality and I think some sort of cocaine addiction.

Christ i pick them! Is there any sites where people are actually normal?
