    • Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House

    As a high school senior, I asked my crush, Mr. MagPie (then a junior) to my senior prom.  It was at the Bellevue in Center City Philadelphia — and is also where he proposed!  So yeah, for sentimental reasons, we go back to "visit" the ballroom from time to time.

    We were both too young to drive at the time we started "dating" (if you can even call it that). I’m not sure the High school cafeteria really counts! So our dates started long after we were together ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it would be cool to have a spot where you could go to on anniversaries and such where you can say "and that is where I was too nervous to eat…"

    What a weird coincidence that the two first comments are related to Boston (where I live now) and Philly (where I grew up). ๐Ÿ™‚

    Our first date was a movie at a theater that shows a lot of indie/artsy/limited-release films (Kendall Sq. Cinema, for the Bostonians).  Neither of us goes to this particular theater much, and when we left it that night, we made a wrong turn and got lost.  We wandered aimlessly for more than an hour trying to find our way back to the subway.  It was actually really funny and cute (especially since he’s lived here all his life and still wholehearedly admitted that we were lost). We go there occasionally now, whenever a movie we want to see isn’t playing anywhere closer.

    The second half of that first date (after the aimless wandering) was spent sitting outside in Harvard Square, drinking tea and listening to a street musician play and sing several oddly perfect songs.  We rarely go back there together, but I go there often for various reasons and it always makes me smile.

    Our first unofficial date was to see Wedding Crashers but a couple of weeks later we went to a Red Sox game. That date became our official anniversary and we’ve tried to catch a game on that date every year since!

    • Wedding: April 2009

    We met online and because we were working such different schedules, we had our first date at my house.  We played Wii until very very late (or early).  It was the best time.  So technically we are always were we had our first date.  Our first date out side of the house happened on Christmas Evening at the movies.  We went back this year and it was so sweet.  Oh, and we still tell people that it is okay to play with his Wii on the first day.

    • Wedding: June 2010

    My fiance and I met in college while taking a course during summer session (his last class before he officially graduated).  Since we were placed in the same group, we had been talking to each other a lot.  We realized that we were both the shy type and needed to get out more often to make new friends.  He decided that we should hang out together as a start to breaking out of our shells, and we went to a sushi restaurant on our first date.  At the time I had no idea it was a date.. I thought we were just friends going out for a bite to eat.  He was a total gentleman, and he brought me to Old New Castle after dinner to walk on the dock and even witness a pirate ship.

    Fast forward 2.5 years later to the day he asked me to marry him.  He recreated our first date and proposed to me on the dock at Old New Castle.  It was perfect!  I didn’t even have a clue that he would propose, mainly because he made it seem like I had chosen the restaurant.

    Like Yin, I proposed to Bee in the same restaurant as our first date!

    When we lived in Jersey we went back to the place of our first date all the time- it was a diner (quite typical for Jersey).  Now that we live in Boston, we are constantly lamenting the lack of a great diner in close proximity to our home.

    our first date included laser tag and dinner at one of my favorite chinese restaurants, pretty far from where we went to school, and where I now live.  I sincerely doubt we’ll be able to return there anytime soon, as we’ll both live across the county from our first date location(s)!

    It was a magical night, though.  I think I’ll always remember it!

    Our first date was at a nice Chinese restaurant.  We love the place and will go there from time to time, but we have done so many nice things together, that it is just a restaurant now.

    We went to a Korean barbecue restaurant and then dancing to our favorite local band for our first date. We are not Korean and had no idea what was going on with the food! We have never been back to that restaurant. But he proposed at another dance when our same favorite band was playing again. So we think of it as "our" band.

    Our first date was… wait for it….

    at TGIFridays! Oh, it is horrible but true.  It was Valentine’s Day 3 years ago, and it was the only non-sketchy restaurant on a scary street in Salt Lake City.  I’m the queen of non-cheesy non-chain restaurants, and here I was at the cheesiest chain restaurant I could ever imagine.  On Valentine’s Day!

    I thought it was inconsequential and no one would ever know, because I thought I’d never go for a second date with this guy… but now it’s gone down in history.  Just for kicks we might go back for Valentine’s Day this year ๐Ÿ˜‰
