First dates. Don'tcha love them? I wrote about my experience here, and if you're too lazy to read it, here's the CliffsNotes version: I was too shy to eat my food, I barely said a word the entire time and then my jeans ripped in the crotch mid-date, but since I was too embarrassed to say anything, I instead walked like a penguin for the rest of the night trying to conceal the rip with my purse.
Don't pity me.
Yes, first dates tend to be terrifying for most at the time, but years later, all you can do is look back and laugh.
So in the spirit of first dates, I asked a few friends to share their experience. Enjoy:
