I realized that I have never gone on a date like this before...
I dated one guy in high school. It was a long distance relationship. We didn't hang out like normal HS couples because when he came to town or I went to see him, we wanted the time filled with fun things.
In college, I dated R. (my ex) and then I married him. We did a lot of hanging out in the dorms because we were too poor to do anything else.
Since my divorce, I have gone on a lot of dates... but what I realized last night is that they have all been with guys I met online or kinda already knew.
So before I went out with them, I already knew a lot about them!
I know very little about this guy, besides the fact that he is related to one of my son's teammates and that he works at the college I attended. I mean, I know that is what dating is all about - to get to know the other person, but I will really be starting at square one here!
Also... we are going to dinner and a movie. I realized that I have never done this on a first date before! I've gone for a lot of coffee ...and lunches ...and even a few dinners. But never dinner and a movie. I don't know what is expected of me in the movie!!!
Is it strange that I am worried about that???
I, of course, have tried on every outfit in my closet.... and then I went shopping, just to make the decision that much harder.
I know things will go fine... and if they don't, I have a feeling it will have something to do with the white skirt I am planning on wearing. (yes, I can be a mess sometimes...but the skirt is cute!!)
So any advice??? Cause for some reason I feel like I am in uncharted territory here.
This Is Not Okay
