When you’re going on a first date, you’ve got unlimited options for dates, and no shortage of bad first date ideas.
Think about it: You either “win” or you strike out.
On the other hand, being forced to stare at each other like you’re on a job interview can quickly get awkward.
I’m firmly of the opinion that almost anything can be a killer date.
Ringing the front door at someone’s parents’ house is just awkward.
If he’s not answering his cell, you’re be forced to interact with his entire family, explaining that you’re really just there to drive him to church/tea time/no, that wasn’t me blasting Ke$ha in the driveway… Post-senior-year-of-high-school is this big amorphous blob of “future.” You might do community service in Ecuador and decide you can’t date anyone who hasn’t experienced a South American outlook on life.
