CountessDraculaPI Fri 31-Aug-07 15:56:16

i KNOW where you are going
you are maaaaaaaaaaad

zippitippitoes Fri 31-Aug-07 15:59:47

i don't know

i turned down the first offer which was dinner in "the west end" and a romantic evening in place x

and have made it change to the london eye and not posh food maybe a drink and home..i said i was going to wear jeans for this

but he is going to turn up in a suit straight from work and he has smuggled back in that maybe i could bring a posh frock just in case

i've said no but i think he is going to try for this dinner posh frock scenario again.

being underdressed is far far far worse than being overdressed imo
what about a trouser and jacket thingy?
smar t but not ott

zippitippitoes Fri 31-Aug-07 16:01:15

what is the london eye a bad idea? is it rubbish?

zippitippitoes Fri 31-Aug-07 16:02:39

another good reason to miss need to go out never mind worry about clothes and stuff

Tigana Fri 31-Aug-07 16:02:49

If he wants you to wear a posh frock make him fricking buy it!

Jeans and a nice posh-like top as compromise?

nailpolish Fri 31-Aug-07 16:02:52

does the london eye not take An Hour to go round? what do you do the whole time? esp if raining/foggy
take a crossword book zippi grin

CountessDraculaPI Fri 31-Aug-07 16:03:29

If you wear a dress on the eye the people in teh next pod will loook up your skirt

It is perfectly acceptable to go out for dinner in london in jeans I do it all the time just wear smart ones and a nice top

nailpolish Fri 31-Aug-07 16:03:48

do not under any circumstances wear jeans
i forbid you
get dolled up - you will feel fab! it gives yuou confidence

CountessDraculaPI Fri 31-Aug-07 16:04:16

You know what
this bloke doesn't sound nice
he sounds like he is pressuring you
i would bin him

zippitippitoes Fri 31-Aug-07 16:04:18

i thought it was about twenty minutes, but my dd told me it was 2 hoours so ilooked on the website and it said 30 mins if i can't stand him for 30 minutes then i'll go home

nailpolish Fri 31-Aug-07 16:04:31

cant go wrong

CountessDraculaPI Fri 31-Aug-07 16:05:17

wtf is a breek?

zippitippitoes Fri 31-Aug-07 16:05:49

i'll see how he pans out i can wear a dress to the meet up if i get one

the last one i agreed to meet got the heave ho between cup and lip

zippitippitoes Fri 31-Aug-07 16:06:27

cd what is the london eye like at least it's public

Pinkchampagne Fri 31-Aug-07 16:07:19

A posh frock ma be a bit dressy for the London eye etc.
How about a nice pair of trousers and a nice little top?

Pinkchampagne Fri 31-Aug-07 16:07:55

Sorry about my typing - my keyboard keeps sticking!

zippitippitoes Fri 31-Aug-07 16:08:34

oh i think he thinks i'm going to change into this the back of his car? in a toilet?

Tigana Fri 31-Aug-07 16:09:09

Does he want to meet you or look at your dress?

Yes..I may have lurked on the 'first date..apartment' thread - just a little M'Lud.

nailpolish Fri 31-Aug-07 16:09:11

Pinkchampagne Fri 31-Aug-07 16:09:13
