Romantic dating stories
We met for brunch, which is the best first date idea for someone you already kind of know.I actually wasn't sure if we were on a date until he offered to pay for the meal.The best first dates don’t have to end up with a relationship or even in bed — they stand on their own as awesome experiences that you can recount for years after.So if you love first dates as much as I do, keep reading for some awesome first date stories.He took me to the Google place to fly kites and it was windy and there were lots of drones and it smelled a bit marshy, like sulfur.But it was really sexy to fly a kite, kind of like in the movies when the dude teaches the preppy girl to play golf, like “It's all in the hips.”Then we went back to downtown Mountain View and I bought a journal at a bookstore (which felt like a good omen, like the start of something new) and ate Mongolian BBQ which was kind of gross and def not romantic.We had SO much to talk about on the walk home, what with comparing notes on what freaked us out the most, etc, and since it was a beautiful night and we were both hungry, we ate Chipotle outside on the edge of a fountain.
Our brunch date turned into a day-long excursion around Brooklyn, just talking and enjoying each other's company. We met at a park in Mountain View on Sunday, two days after we first met.
I highly recommend leaving your comfort zone on first dates for instant connecting! Basically if you wore the school colors you were entered into the raffle.
I was in charge of randomly picking the winners but I had a huge crush on this boy at the time (I was 14 he was 15) and rigged the raffle so he would win! I rigged it just so we could have some sort of interaction when I handed him the prize but he asked me to go to Dairy Queen with him! When we got there he only ordered the one Blizzard (the free one...) and being a super shy teenager I agreed to any flavor he wanted. We've been dating ever since (and now I choose all the flavors we order)!
Then we made out and cuddled in the gazebo for hours! He came into my life like a flashbulb — all at once, brightly and instantaneously present —he wore his hair in a vertical curly pile on top of his head.
We met at a cafe called Mojo, where we sat next to each other and started talking. (I was a half hour late that day after getting lost chatting it up outside of Mojo.)We met up for a show that same night.
