View Full Version : On a date tonight

Got chatting with a lovely sounding lady on an online dating website, things have gone quite well over the last few weeks.

We are going to meet up this evening.

Now, I would prefer a quick drink at a bar to see how we get on.

The lady has suggested a meal, later on in the evening so we can drop our cars off and get the train into Manchester for a nice long evening.

Now, I am hoping we get on well in person, but, I could do with an escape plan if this is needed.

My head is rather clogged up with hayfever – will not be on top form, any ideas for getting this sorted out? A steam room would cure, but sadly no time to get to the health club before we meet up.

Have you seen a photo?

For an escape plan, ask a friend to phone you a short time after you meet up. You can then pretend something terrible has happened and you need to rush off.

For the hayfever, you could try a "neti pot" although the closest thing I have found in the UK high street is some salt water in a can you squirt up there. There are also loads of OTC hayfever remedies that I'm sure you know about.

Have you told her that your neighbours hate you and your ex-girlfriends suddenly get very ill?

Hayfever cure; Combination of a one-a-day non drowsy anti-histamine, Beconase inhaler and anti hay-fever eyedrops.

Exacly but it also gives the option of staying if you get on like a house on fire.

Let me guess. You've agreed to go on a date this evening with some bloke you met on an internet dating site, you suggested heading into Manchester for a meal, and now you've decided it's not such a good idea?

Noooooo. Don't go for a meal!! Just stick to a one hour drink and that way you bother have a get out without having to make excuses. If it goes well you can always do food next time. She might be a right swamp donkey and you are gonna be stuck trying to eat and keep your food down everytime you look at her!! It would be the longest night ever!

Of course there is also the risk that over the course of the meal and associated imbibement your reaction softens from "eeew" to "yeah baby lets get it on", resulting in you waking up next to a wookie, probably a long way from home, with a hangover.

Be careful.

Apart from the obigatory <<canned laughter>> and Frank Spencer voice I hear when I read these threads....

Does the quote above not seem a little weird for a first date especially one with someone you've met on the tinterweb.

Both drive to restaurant in sep cars, neither can drink (ok, fine)... And then train into the city meaning you both HAVE to return to the same place regardless of how much of a nightmare it was. Why would she suggest that?

find it difficult to find a restaurant that can accomodate her guide dog? And won't your style be cramped as she will have her carer with her?

Because her boyfriend is into nicking cars, and when they both return there, Wilmslow's will be gone. Although who would want an 8-year-old Mondeo Estate? Takes all sorts I suppose!

No,she is not dumped - she is starting to get better, and getting chatty with me again, so will see how tonight goes and take things from there. Women are like buses - none, then two at once.

Already checked - there is no bassett hound on the scene.

Isn't that technically cheating then going to a date whilst having sick girlfriend who has not been officially dumped yet? :eyes

I went on an "internet" date once, we had a few drinks in a pub and then decided to go to the girls favourite curry house, which was nearby.

About half way through she said "you have to stop me eating the rest of that naan bread"

So I picked it up and licked it.

Wilmslow
16th July 2010, 07:06
Hmm…..

Had a really nice evening – good tapas, quality wine that warranted a decanter, and a nice drink in Cloud 23 (Hilton Skybar) after.

The time flew past – it was last train home time before we knew it.

Got the ‘Thanks for a good night’ text 10 mins after we went for our trains.

Think it could work out if I want it to, but will take another couple of meet-ups to know if I would be happy. Not many silences, conversation flowed pretty well – but quite a promising evening :)

I have no qualms about dating somebody else as my current lady has gone down south for 7 weeks – if she felt that strongly about me, she would have suggested a weekend when we catch up, and when I suggested this I got the ‘I need space’ thing, despite seeing me once in the last 3 weeks.

Plan is to have a day out with lady 2, maybe a walk somewhere, then see if lady 1 will have me over for a weekend over the next 7 weeks.

I hate being single, yet strangely enjoying the chase….

This means "I want to dump you but won't say it because I don't want to hurt your feelings, hence I will mess you about instead and hurt your feelings a different way"

Just hope that #2 doesn't catch you chasing after #1, or you will likely end up with nothing (or a doormat that will put up with that sort of thing, which is probably worse)

Any tongue action/flirting of any description ? This sounds like a business meeting ! Now, I usually have seen them before going out and therefore know that I want to go 'taters deep'. I focus most of my energies on making that happen, once it has I generally start to think about whether I like them a lot...
Do you actually fancy her ???

good job Wilmslow

the post however stangely reminds me of that Adrian Mole book.

Anyway that aside, keep 'em coming, we want a running commentary as you touch 1st base, pass through 2nd base and get to 3rd base.

What's the project timeline for getting to 3rd base ?

Wilmslow, for goodness sake.

When I met you I thought you were a nice enough chap. You appeared a little slow and socially awkward - I thought you might even have been autistic.

From what you've just posted I can only assume that in reality you're a dickhead of the first order. You can't live with neighbours without pissing them off and you don't appear to understand about social taboos.

I suggest you get some help.

This is sad. There are plenty of nice blokes out there, you're just looking in all the wrong places. Forget the bronzed muscly guitar playing types and get to a star trek convention. :D

Seriously though, everyone deserves happiness and I hope things turn around for you. When you are least expecting it the knight in shining armour will appear. In the mean time try to be patient rather than cynical, it may put off would be suitors.

If you want some dating tips then you just need to let me know, I used to be a dab hand.

I've got it down to a bit of a tee over the years. So, here is my instructional video, just answer the questions I've asked and this should start to narrow down your options.

Trouble is, you can hear playing like that in any rock/blues club any time you want to go looking for it. She's getting the spotlight because she's slim and blonde. Tal Wilkenfeld, on the other hand...

And here she is being patronised for a couple of minutes before she gets to play.
