We’ve known each other since I was like 10 or 11 and we dated long distance when I was in high school, but I don’t think we ever went on a “date”. So I am going to say our first official outing that we refer to as a date, was when he took me to the Twin Cities for a baseball game. My favorite team is Arizona Diamondbacks and his is the Minnesota Twins, and somehow by the grace of God, they played each other that year, AND in Minneapolis (we lived in NE and SD). He booked a room at the downtown Hilton for the weekend, bought tickets to the entire series, and drove me out there. It was really sweet. AND he didn’t even try to make a move on me because he wanted to prove that he was a gentleman. The funniest thing was is that when I am hungry, I get grumpy, so I was kind of a beyotch a lot of the time (I get hungry a lot) but HE still treated me like a princess. I don’t know what he saw/sees in me, but I’m glad he did/does!

Our first date was going to a bar and watching the 2008 BCS football game – go OSU Buckeyes!  We had known each other for about a year before we went on our first date.  I remember I had French Fries and a Bud Light.  When the game was over, Fiance walked me to my car and we kissed, but he was being a wuss about it being cold outside (we live in Cleveland – of course it is going to be cold in Jan.!)  I also remember Fiance being embarrassed about his winter beater car (he drove a beater in the winter and a 03 Mustang Cobra in the summer months), so he waited until I drove off to get into his car.  Awww πŸ™‚

We actually didn’t go on an real date until a month or two into our relationship. We met at a party, hung out twice after that at more parties, and then had a pseudo-date when we became official that involved 10 other people and a bonfire. Our first real date was going out for lunch and then to a movie.

We were 22 and had just met at an off-site training for our first jobs. He took me to a japanese BYOB called Poke on the upper east side, right below his apartment. Back then it was a super low key tiny unknown restaurant, now it’s expanded and impossible to get a table. But we had a great time, we shared a sushi entree b/c we were so poor and brought a magnum of pinot grigiot. I remember being self conscious about eating in front of him, I liked him so much I was nervous!

We were long-distance, I lived in the prairies and he lived near the mountains.

Our first date wasn’t exactly meant to be a date- but I drove out there to go skiing and he and I were the only ones with the weekend off.

SO, first date was a four-day ski weekend!

@moderndaisy: I was self-conscious eating in front of him, too! πŸ™‚

He took me to an Indian restaurant. We’d met and talked a few times before the date, so it isn’t like it was a blind date or anything, but I was super nervous!! I remember staring at him and smiling and him staring at me and smiling periodically throughout dinner. Oh, and I remember thinking how hot he looked in the black shirt he was wearing. πŸ™‚  I just remember being so nervous. The funny thing is I’m super outgoing and generally not shy. But that night I was!!  Oh, and after dinner? Whoa….now that was good stuff!! πŸ™‚

Ha! Too fun, it was actually Valentine’s Day, so our dating anniv is looming!

We met the previous Friday in Ottawa (in a bar), about 4 hours from the GTA, had a great night, exchanged numbers and planned to meet again and go on a date instead of screaming in each other’s ears.

On the Wednesday following (so Feb 11) he called and with our crazy schedules day by day went through what we had and when we could fit something in. Evenings were booked solid until the 20th and that was the day before my birthday, and I didn’t want to wait that long! So we planned a 4pm date for that Saturday, he coached hockey so it was before his game, we felt 60 for planning a 4pm dinner date, but when you’re busy, we had to make it work.

Hung up the phone and started to call/text friends and let them know and all I kept getting back was “Valentine’s Day” I’m thinking, ohhhh crap, NO!

The day came and we called from our parked cars and found each other mid way through this huge parking lot and headed toward the restaurant, he said “I forgot to turn my satellite radio off in my car, can we run back” I said sure, and the liar pulled out a single rose and wanted to acknowledge vday, but not made a big deal of it, he got the “Valentines Day?” questions from his buddies as well, it was a great ice breaker to laugh about how we were chirped!

We had a wonderful dinner (at a Sports bar, ha!), we figured out the age difference, I remember that being a first moment of “is this going to be ok” as we’re 7 years apart, but I act older and he has a baby face :p My favourite NHL team was playing his fave team that night so we even got into some good banter. He had to get to his game, and I was going to head home to watch that NHL game when he asked if I’d like to come to his game with him. I said sure! He drove me into and across Toronto for the game, then back to our meeting spot, I was head over heals from that moment. Next date was the 20th the night before my birthday, date #3 was a Leafs game!

I had a very painful breakup with a live-in bf of almost 5 years and was still trying to get my life together. I signed up for eHarmony after seeing a commercial and a few weeks in Fiance contacted me. I did not really like his profile, he seemed boring, but I figured that it wouldn’t hurt meeting him. On the day of the date I really did not want to go. It was raining and I was feeling miserable. We met at a pub and I couldn’t even remember how he looked from his profile page. We had tea and talked for about an hour and a half and it was first time in my life when I actually felt “the sparks” even though I still did not like him (odd, I know) πŸ™‚ I got home and I already had a message from him waiting asking me on a second date – I had nothing better to do, so I agreed to that… The rest is history πŸ™‚ I was never happier than I am now πŸ™‚

Rewind to May 2009. I was 22, he was 28.

We met online so our first date was our actual meeting and it was the absolute BEST first date I have ever had. We met at a baseball game. (Now, in Fort Wayne, it was a single A team, so no huge crowds, but still safe enough to make an escape if he was a total creeper.) We met and I couldn’t help but smile. He was SOOO stinkin’ cute! So we went to our seats and as the game went on we made conversation, I acted a fool like I usually do and we started holding hands. Then came the Kiss Cam. So our first kiss was in front of 3000 people. Lovely.

Then we went to dinner at his favorite restaurant and made more conversation. And then to a movie. We saw “Angels and Demons” and I pretended that I knew who the bad guy was the whole time despite not knowing and constantly changing my mind. So that is a running joke. I’m really good at predicting things after they already happen.

After that, we went to karaoke. I failed miserably at it and he rocked. So he drove me back to my car and followed me home. You see, he lived across. the. street. Ah, the Internet bringing everyone together, even if they live 500 feet apart. πŸ˜€

My first date with my SO was actually the first time I met him. We had met online and he was living in Oregon while I was in Chicago. We chatted casually at first and then started composing long emails, texting all day, long phone calls at night. He came to stay with me for a week (I know, I got really lucky that he wasn’t a serial killer or something) in September 2008 and our first date was me picking him up from the airport and going to my blues band practice, if you can call that a date. In some sense, we never really had a first date since it was a mesh of the whole week, but I’m totally okay with that. It was great. πŸ™‚

We were really good (platonic) friends.  We wanted to hand out and do something together, but because we both worked a lot, never seemed to find the time.

One weekend, I was free, but he had a guys night out that he was attending out of town,  He decided to take me out to lunch before he left.  I don’t know what was different this time, but we sat in that restaurant for about 3 hours because neither wanted to leave.  Then we went out to his car and just sat in the car and talked….and talked.  About 9 p.m. he realized he wasn’t going to his guy’s night out.  He came back to my place to hang out and watch a movie instead. 

When he left, I just got our normal hug and kiss on the cheek.  But he called the next morning and said we needed to do that again…soon.  By the end of that week, he kissed me and we realized we were no longer just friends anymore.

Our first date was when I flew out to Florida after meeting Darling Husband online and talking for 3 weeks on the phone.  Once I landed at the airport we drove to Daytona Beach and walked on the beach, then went to dinner and then went to see a late movie!  Then we got up really early that next morning and headed back to KS in a uhaul!  So our first date seemed to last several days:)

On what I guess I would call our first date, Fiance came over to my dorm room and brought movies for us to watch. We watched “Baseketball” and “Orgazmo,” and talked all night. We were both super nervous the entire time, but it went well.
