But IRL, first dates can be so much more surprising and unexpected than that. He sat NEXT to me like a creep when it was clearly a two-person-facing table (he’s since explained that it was a tip he’d read in a dating book so forced himself to do it).
Once I got over the initial weirdness, it was all going OK. Until I caught him checking out my legs, and his recovery was laughable: “Are those shorts Chanel, too? ” Then, as we were getting ready to pay the bill he said, “Oh, I should get it.” I said, “Oh, no, I will,” and he replied, “Oh really? ” And just like that, I was paying for our entire meal.
And look, I seriously ummed and ahed; FFS – I’d IRONED MY CLOTHES for this guy and all he did was leave me standing out the front of my house, looking/feeling like fresh-pressed idiot. Turns out, this guy was/still is the hummus to my tabouleh – and has been for four years now. *Mark may or may not have said this but, still, he stood me up, so whatevs.
Well, call it stupidity (or serendipity) but I ended up giving this guy another shot (not tequila – ) and our second-first date was amazing. I was on a big night out with some friends when I met a really nice guy at the bar. The next day he texted me asking me out to dinner, but due to my huge night I had completely forgotten his name.
First dates are always the weirdest, and it’s only after a couple more dates that you truly get to find out that maybe they’re not a dick after all or, hell, they bloody are.
Almost a decade on, here we are, laughing at how his level of dickhead peaked on our first date – and never have I seen it make an appearance again.When we arrived I was shocked to find out the new 'restaurant' was in fact a new car-wash cafe!After we had a laugh – my boyfriend (a struggling student at the time) explained he had booked after seeing a two-for-one dinner deal on a pamphlet – we decided to go ahead and eat there.When she asked for a name I said I wasn't sure, and asked if I could go for a look instead.She was really confused and I couldn't blame her. I had the most random first date with a friend of a friend.It was such a fun/funny night and we went on our second date the next week.I met my boyfriend on exchange in the US; we were staying in the same dorm.What he didn’t tell me was that his mate needed the restaurant to be full because It was probably the most awkward date I’ve ever been on, especially because the producer came over as we were eating our starters and asked if it was our first date – she then proceeded to ask if he’d take me on a second date on camera! Thankfully that footage ended up on the cutting room floor – and the second date was our last! ”But before I could get mad (well, madder) he said “Oh, no. Suffice to say it made a funny best man speech at our wedding!!My first date with my now-husband was kinda memorable for all the wrong reasons! For our first date, my boyfriend told me he was taking me out to a restaurant opening called ' Elegance'. Love them, hate them or get blind-drunk just to get yourself through them - there's no denying there's no one-size-fits-all formula.Whether it's a Tinder match or a blind date that your work wife engineered, The Law Of Rom-Coms would have us believe that the all-important first date is either a heart-exploding, one-way ticket to Marriage Town – or – slapstick comedy level tragic. But some of the greatest, rom-com-worthy loves My husband Andrew and I had a pretty memorable (read: shitty) first date.
