    @sesame:  It reminds me of the old tradition of “parking”, and I would think he was just waiting for things to get physical. Yuck! On the other hand, if he wanted to go for a walk and talk, totally fine.

    Once you’ve been seeing each other for a couple of months, and you like each other, and you had planned to go to the park and feed the ducks but at the last minute it started pouring with rain so you ended up sitting in the car beside the lake and talking and enjoying the picnic basket that you were originally going to eat sitting in the park… sure.  That sounds nice.  As a first, second, or third date, when you’re still getting to know each other, and there’s no picnic basket involved, just driving somewhere with the sole intention being to sit in the car and talk for the entire date… no.

    As a stand alone event…

    Uh, no.

    Sitting in the car talking as part of a bigger date…

    Such as happening after Dinner, the Movie… etc

    Ya, pretty normal IMO

    Be it in College, Uni or even Post Divorce in my 40s, men would often times sit and talk to me somewheres in their car (often my Driveway, if I wasn’t comfy quite yet enough to invite them in)

    Lol, spent HOURS of my life sitting in my Parent’s Drive having great talks with propsective suitors.

    Honestly sometimes I’d sit out there with a Boyfriend or Best Friend for 1 or 2 Hours after the Date talking.

    No harm in that if you ask me.

    That is very weird. If he wanted to make it less formal, then meet at a coffee shop or go for a walk at a local park. Those are cheap dates, but you’re actually doing something, instead of just sitting in a car and staring at one another.

    If it’s just sitting in the car, no way.

    @JulietFoxtrot:  + 1

    Otherwise, just sitting in a car is no sort of date at all. It rates as highly on that front as standing at a bus stop and having a conversation would. In other words, it doesn’t count as a date, regardless of whether the purpose is just to get to know each other. 

    Dates don’t have to be expensive or require complicated arrangements. A walk in the park and a cup of coffee is fine, But heck, some sort of effort needs to be demonstrated! Right now it sounds as if what you’ve got to know about this guy is that he can’t be bothered to make even the slightest effort. Not a great impression to create!
