Worst Date Wednesday

I am hoping to feature reader’s worst date stories every Wednesday. If you have one please contact us here at talk.date.love.

My worst date story is short: I was in high school and extremely excited to have been asked out by an older guy. He invited me to go see a movie and when we arrived at the theater his friends were there saving us seats… not cool. I was very embarrassed even though it was his fail for inviting friends on our date. Needless to say no relationship occurred. I don’t remember anything else about the date at all. Lame.

This blog is not limited to any age. No matter if you are in high school or the nursing home. We can all help each other work through our dating and relationship issues.

This blog is not a negative zone.  But if you say that you got the name of a person you have only been on one date with tattooed on your butt… yeah we are going to make fun of that.

This blog is not a wedding blog. But I’m totally down for proposal stories. And after marriage relationship issues. And engagement relationship issues. But not wedding planning, etc.

What would you like to see this blog discuss?

Ask her out.

I want to challenge all the single men out there to ask a girl out on a date for this coming weekend. Drinks. Dinner. Ice Skating (If it happens to be  frozen where you are.) Just make sure it is an activity where you can talk. Movies are not an option for the first through third date.

It is my personal opinion that men are not asking women out on dates enough. Talking via technology is not a way to start a relationship. The only technology that should be used is your phone to call and ask for the date and arrange plans. Save the talking for in person. (No asking someone on a date via Texting. That is lame.)

It is also my personal opinion that women should say yes to every first date they are asked on. You never know when the right guy will come along.  So be a nice, classy lady and say yes. Go on the date. If you don’t feel sparks flying then don’t agree for a second date. It is that simple. And you might even get a free meal out of the deal. That is very economical, right?

Go forth and conquer the dating world. Anyone going to take my advice? or have thoughts on my thoughts?

Anything else you want to know about me? Otherwise this will have to suffice and we will get back to the subject at hand.

My POV on Dating

It is my mission to get people out there dating again.

My philosophy: Get out there and meet people. You see a cute guy or gal – go introduce yourself. Talk to them and decide if you enjoy them. If so… ask the other one out on a Date. Coffee or dinner or an activity where you can continue to talk. There are only 2 outcomes after a date 1) you want to spend more time with the person or 2) you don’t. Make the choice and don’t look back. Then get out there and introduce yourself to the next cute guy or gal who comes your way. Eventually you will find Love.

We need to spend more time dating people. Not dating as we know it now… dating as it used to be. Lunch with one person. Dinner with another person. Dinner the next night with another person. Taking the time to meet a lot of people until you finally find one to make it exclusive with. Everyone is always looking for the next relationship they can jump into. We define ourselves based on if we are in a long-term relationship. But why just jump into one to say you have a girlfriend/boyfriend. Date. Don’t only explore one option at a time.

It seems that we have deemed people who go out with multiple people “players” or “sluts,” but that is also because we assume everyone is going to go to dinner and then to bed together. That needs to stop. We need to start dating to date. Then eventually you will find someone who is worth being the only one you date.

My dream for this blog is to be an open forum on dating and love life. We all need to chip in and help each other out. Whether you are single, in a relationship or married – We need to hear everyone’s advice and input on the topics proposed. This will allow people to make educated decisions in their love life and find the right person for them. No one should settle in life, especially in love.
