    I have a few amazing date stories, but I'm traumatized by reading all about the bad ones. Later. Plus, I'm about to leave the house for a first date...at a coffee place.

    GAWD.

    I once met a guy who goes to my college on myspace and we decided to hang out.

    We went to Syracuse and got some coffee, which was cool. He was a sweet guy, smart, and we managed to keep up a good conversation. We then went to a Melissa Ferrick concert and were the only two guys in a crowd of probably 200 women.


    Yeah... not as long as my date from hell.... and it didn't end up working out, but it was a good date.

    My first real date I got picked up in a limo by my chapter house president, we went to Savanah, he took me dinner, took me to see a musical (itialian) ad then we went to the beach, walked in the surf in our tuxes, lost the tuxes under the pier for a bit and then he drove me back and we snuggled for the rest of the night.

    My last 'first date' I was in an unfamiliar city, showed up on faith, the temperature was 117 in the shade (literally) and the car's AC had just died. There was little green to be seen anywhere, "It's a dry heat." simply meant it was like standing in an oven. I might as well have been on the surface of Mercury.

    BTW: It was the best date I'd ever had.

    Ok, probably the best date I can recollect. Back in late 2006 I noticed on a gay chat board a guy that was from Michigan. He looked interesting, and real, so I started to chat him up. I still don't know why he was in my chat room for Akron Ohio. We found out through the first couple of chats we were both vegetarians, both love healthy eating and healthy food, both listen to npr, both are democrats, both into Harry Potter, both like to be outdoors hiking, biking, anything really, and we both work out. We chatted for a few months and we finally decided to meet. I suggested meeting halfway but he said he could drive to my place. I'm over 4 hrs away.

    Although he didn't indicate it on his profile, I made sure that he was relationship oriented and he stated he would only consider a relationship that was monogamous. I feel the same way.

    So the plan was to meet in March, on a Saturday, and he would stay the weekend....talk about taking chances! But the chatting and phone conversations felt really right...like everything clicked. He showed up late on Saturday because neither of us knew how long it would actually take. It took me awhile to answer the door because I have a dog that I like to put away so she doesn't overwhelm guests at first. (at a later date he said I took so long to answer the door he felt like it was a mistake and was going to head to the car).

    Anyhow....you know how you meet someone and your breath is taken away....it was like that for both of us....we could barely talk. We had plans to go to dinner and take a hike. On the way to the hike he started saying how he is really glad he made the trip and I am definitely his type. I had to agree with him that I thought he was awesome.

    After that the whole weekend is a blur now, but it was pretty much perfect. Being a sly dog, I took him to the most romantic places I knew. We got to see each other that summer almost every other weekend....from March to September. I basically thought it was going to be a longterm relationship but that didn't happen.

    In September of that year I had tickets to see Kathy Griffin, and he could not make it. He accepted a new schedule at work for extra pay that made him work weekends. Considering I didn't see him for two months, In October I had a phone conversation with him. I wanted to let him know that we could still be friends, and that if he didn't want to see me "in that way" as a lover than we could just be friends. He said "no, no, let's see where things go".

    After that I asked him at least a dozen times to come visit but he always backed out. So in March of 09 I finally resolved to myself to never invite him back again.

    We are still friends, he calls almost every week like clockwork. At one time he seemed kind of upset that I haven't talked with him in awhile and was almost pleading with me to still be friends(of which I still whole heartedly want to do). I just wish we could have carried that perfect weekend into more of long term situation for both of us, we made each other very happy.

    Amazing date story:

    I was having lunch in a restaurant in Boston when I caught the eye of a handsome guy at a nearby table. He got up to use the restroom, detoured by my table, and dropped a piece of paper with his name and number.
    I called and he invited me to his apartment for a glass of wine.
    The apartment turned out to be in a beautiful Back Bay brownstone with original woodwork and marble fireplaces. In the living room was a grand piano. I told him I was a classical music devotee and he said he could play anything from memory. He could and did play anything on request up to and including a complete piano reduction of the Schumann piano concerto.
    I was totally blown away and it would have been eternal love except that when we got to the bedroom he turned out to be totally inert. By his own admission he was the worst lay in Boston, which is an accomplishment in itself.
    It was still an amazing date.

    Recent 2nd date

    Went for a hike around Discovery Park and made our way down to the Sound where we watched the Sun setting and Ferries drift by. Then he goes, "I'm starving, what do I want for dinner?" requesting that I read his mind. We grinned incessantly when we concluded on Chinese food. He's humble, handsome, with quiet charm, a 5 o'clock shadow. Dressed casually in a t shirt and cargo shorts, and sandles. Hot legs, beautiful smile, the warmest eyes ....whew! moving on.

    It was an amazing date because I still can't forget about how he filled up my cup when I finished drinking my tea several times. He was even in the middle of a sentence and stopped to fill up my cup then finished his story. I must've melted right there.

    Erhm. best date ever was pretty damn simple (hasn't had many nice dates, it's all the bad ones that are interesting).. went to a movie (Sydney White ^_^') lol, he told me that I reminded him of Amanda Bines' character which I didn't quite know how to take that. At any rate, we exchanged life stories on the way to bring me home and then ended up sitting in my driveway in the car, waiting for it to stop raining (allegedly), continued to talk and when I finally did get out, he got out as well and we made out in the rain after a couple of awkward moments of just looking at each other.. icon_redface.gif and..I had warm fuzzies for like two days..never saw him again, but oh well..I still had a nice night. Damn, I'm boring..

    I went camping the first time my boyfriend visited me at college when I was an undergrad. We went with my school's GSA, so he got to meet all the people in it, who were immediately jealous, haha. They made us make out in front of them for 30 seconds during truth-or-dare. He got along with everyone, and when he left at the end of the weekend, thaey all told me not to let him get away. I'm a big outdoorsy person, so the fact that he was willing to do this so early in the relationship made it a great date. We spent the rest of the weekend going to restaurants and parties at school too. Fun weekend-long date.

    It's really hard to pick, I've had so many amazing dates and experiences with my boyfriend. The one that stands out though was our second date.

    We hit it off so well during the first date, decided to take a risk and invite him to come with my friends to Catalina for scuba diving. First night we slept on the boat and just talked and kissed. Next day was beautiful, we were diving and looking at the amazing fish and he held my hand as we swam around.

    He is just an amazing caring guy.

    My best date was a first date. This guy and I just went and bought tostitos and beers and went to the park in the evening and sat down under some trees and talked. It was more about the conversation than anything else, it was a beautiful summer night and we just connected very well. Romantically though, it wasn't going to work out and we had a second date and then that was the end of it. Still an amazing experience.

    ...I'm a cheap date apparently.

    My best date was with my most recent ex. I like things simple and it'll probably show...it was our first date (I know, I know...)
    He messaged me on Myspace not even a few days earlier and I ended up getting his number and calling him that Friday. We met at the library on campus as we both went to the same college and then back to his place for a little bit. He picked up a change of clothes and a movie I hadn't seen (Kill Bill vol. 1) and we went to my place. I made dinner, and we sat on my bed while watching the movie because I lived at home at the time. After that, we just ended up cuddling and talking about our lives up to that point and fell asleep together later that night. The next night, I took him out salsa dancing and we walked around the park after. There's a nice little spot that overlooks the downtown area right next to the river, and I took him there and wrapped my arms around him from behind and we simply stood there for about half an hour just watching the cars drive by, people walking and the stars. Sadly, the next day he had a test to study for so we didn't get to spend any time together after I woke up and showered, but it was a very nice weekend.

    I just saw this and can I comment, since I was there? Seeing you at the airport, in person for the first time after months of wanting to - then touching you - talking with you, gazing into your gorgeous eyes, seeing you smile, hearing your melodious upper east coast dialect, holding your hand across the table in the cozy restaurant, then later leaving together and kissing you under the bridge for the first time - was Heaven on Earth. There isn't anything better in this life than being with you.icon_cool.gif

    This cute boy I met when I was in college, we met up on campus, went to play some squash at the gym, had some snacks together and watched this cartoons movie together.... that one was stupid lol but he was very sweet and super cute. Everything went great, we made out for an extended period of time lol, which was amazing btw and sex was awesome too since we were both versatile and fully compatible. We continued dating for a couple of months, we had a very interesting Valentine together(if was the first time we both could actually spend Valentines day with a date ).... but eventually we went separated ways, different colleges icon_sad.gif.

    I had been talking to this guy online for awhile, but meeting up always posed challenges because I was in San Jose and he's in San Francisco. We decided to meet up the only day I had available, as I'd just gotten out of my winter finals and I had a flight out to Wisconsin the next day to be with family for the holidays.

    I drove up and picked him up. I thought he was really cute from the beginning, but ... didn't take my breath away. I hadn't slept the night before, so I was EXHAUSTED and fairly cranky. I failed an attempt to parallel park, and he started giving me shit for it. I liked him already.

    We had lunch and it was really cool. He's a theater performer, and I was going to a friend's workshop of an original musical later that night. I'd decided to wait to get to know him before suggesting we extend the date, but ... we really hit it off, so I offered, and he accepted. We got drinks from the coffee shop and wandered around the waterfront talking for hours. The more we talked the more we realized we had in common.

    The theater performance was really good, and I got to introduce him to a few people (who, later, he ended up getting performing gigs through). After the show, he told me to drive down one of the streets. We got to the beach and parked.

    For those who've never seen Ocean Beach at night in a full moon ... please do. It's breathtaking. The moon glittering off the water, the spray off of the boulders right offshore. I thought to myself, "He's trying to seduce me. And it's working." So, I kissed him.

    Great kisser.

    We kissed in the beach. We kissed in the car. I think we took an hour to say goodbye, because we just didn't want to leave each other. We didn't want the moment to end. All he had to do was touch my face, and my entire body tingled.

    It didn't last for long. Life got in the way, but ... for those few weeks, I was untouchable. It's the only time I've ever been in love. And it was worth it. icon_rolleyes.gif
