Q & A Monday: First Date Questions

Hey, y'all!

Another Monday is upon us.  Man, last week went fast!  This week, we are preparing for our housewarming party by doing some cleaning and various projects we can manage to get done in time.  Things have been a bit hectic lately, but hopefully everything will go smoothly.

This week's questions are about first dates.  To preface my answers, I am married and have been dating my husband for eight years.  I am thrilled I don't have to worry about first dates anymore because I hated dating.  Still, I wanted to answer the questions to the best of my ability.

It is time again for Friend Makin' Monday.  If you have a blog, I would like to invite you to answer the questions as well.  Leave me a comment here, so I know you are playing.  Then you can also leave a comment over at All The Weigh, so other folks can check out your answers as well.  It is a fun way to connect to other bloggers.

First Date Questions

1.  Share the details of your dream date. 

Private jet to somewhere fantastic and luxurious, amusement park, etc. lol

2. Do you tend to make the first move when you want to kiss someone, or do you prefer that someone else does it? 
I let the guy make the first move.  I didn't feel comfortable doing that. 

3.  Sex on the first date:  Yes or no?  

No.  I didn't give it away for free. lol

4.  Share the details of the worst date ever.  

It was a blind date with a guy that my friend set me up with.  The guy was a friend of her husband.  I told her my laundry list of everything I wanted this guy to be and she said he met a lot of my requirements.  Um, NO.  Turns out, he didn't.

It was a blind date/double-date with my friend and her husband.  When I met him, he was super short and not attractive.  Next, he gave me one of those tiny fake gas station roses.  We all got in his truck and headed to the restaurant where we were having dinner.  He got a phone call almost immediately and spent 15 minutes on the phone talking in Spanish.  Then he spent the rest of the drive talking Spanish to his friend.  I don't know everything they said, but they did call my friend some mean names.

I was so grossed out by this guy that when we got to the restaurant and began playing the Trivia game the restaurant has going, I whooped everyone's butts with my intellect in an effort to get him to be so intimidated by me that he would  leave me alone.

After dinner, we went to a nightclub.  My friend and I sat at a table while this guy and her husband played pool.  When a guy came up to our table to talk to me, this little cockroach came up and tried to step to the nice guy like I was his chick.  Later my friend and I went out to dance to a song we liked.  Her husband and my "date" abandoned their pool table to try to dance with us.  I sat down immediately.  They went back to play pool but were perturbed to find it had been taken over since they abandoned their game.

They got so pissed off that they got in a fight with the guys and got kicked out of the club.  Then we had to go to some diner (I was SO DONE with this night), where the guy proceeded to tell me how much he loved me and how beautiful I was and he wanted me to be his wife and all this stuff.  I declined his offer yet he still sent me roses the next day and called me a few days later to profess his undying love for me.  I had to straight up tell him I did not find him attractive and never wanted to see him again for him to even sort of get a clue.

5.  What is your biggest turn-off on a first date?  
hahaha See above story.  There are many.  That is one of the many reasons I hate dating.

6.  Are you a dog person, a cat person or neither?  
Dog person, for sure!

7.  Do you like spontaneity or routine? 

I prefer routine in my day to day life.  My anxiety enjoys the routine too.  Spontaneity is great when I am in the right frame of mind.

8.  What matters more to you – how much money your partner makes or how much they love their job?  
Well, money is important, but I am happier knowing my husband loves his job and what he does.  Happier people are healthier people.  Life is miserable when you hate your job.

9.  Friends first?  Yes or no?  
Yes.  I think being friends first is great.  Plus, it is a good idea to want to hang out with and be around the person you like as friends before introducing romance.  I think it makes for a stronger relationship.

10.  How do you know if someone is interested in you?  
I think there is an underlying feeling, though I was always quick to brush off any kind of hint. lol

 It is your turn to answer them now, if you so desire.  Have a great week!


  1. I'm skipping FMM because even thinking about dating gives me flashbacks. I think the first few dates with a dude I ended up datingbanging for a while were awkward as shit. I was just hanging out with him because I was bored and needed someone's head to fuck with. I considered him a practice tool. As in, date someone I don't get all fucked up in the head about, because I'd had way too much mind-fucking and not enough ACTUAL fucking. I was also dating another dude at the time, and went out on some other dates.

    I don't know about the money/job thing, either. I make more money than the BF does. Don't think either of us really cares. I just know that, from watching my mom, I cannot even remotely ever consider being financially dependent on a guy. Also, I'm terrible at being domestic. I am a good cook, but that's about it. If I could make some more money than I do now, I wouldn't care if he stayed home....he's much better about housework than I am. I am a total slob. If I wanted to give up some of my shopping habits, I'd hire a maid...

  2. Oh god, that bad date story is absolutely horrid. I know the type. He thinks he's a suave guido-type when really he's just a sleaze. A good laugh for me, though! It helps ease my embarrassment about my own horror stories!
