our first date

our first date

Yes, I am talking about you and me. Our first date.

Let me warn you, I always say those three little words on a first date.

Let me begin by saying, first dates are for connecting and conversations, finding out if there is chemistry. I don’t believe in movies or Broadway shows on a first date.

It should be all about the conversation.

So, we may begin with a walk in a garden, art exhibit, museum, or book store. If I know anything about you, I will try to start the date viewing something pleasureable to you. It is a good ice breaker. I once started a date with a tom-boy lady friend by playing minature golf (me in a suit and tie, her in a little black dress).

Back to us. Of course, you and I will finally sit down for a fine dinner.

At some point during the dinner conversation, when you least expect it, I will gaze into your eyes and whisper those three little words.

“Tell me more.”

  1. Gorgeous!! I’m also more interested in a walk through a garden on a first date rather than a movie. Conversation is everything on dates in general I think. Just not the interview type of conversation Lol… Hope you have fun on your first date with this lovely lady, Andrew ๐Ÿ˜


  2. First, Andrew, when I saw the photograph, I sighed. The poetic beauty and the simplicity screamed romance to me. Perfectly captured. And then your words. I hung on to every single one of them, imagining myself on a date as you described and found myself yearning. You are quite a man to want to get to know a woman and what she not you would want on a date. Not many men can do that. I applaud you. Your recap is written to perfection, fyi. I wish it were me sitting at that table ……


  3. Haa haaa ….oh you left us all wanting to hear more…….I loved the light heartedness of this piece ……. Couldn’t stop smiling ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒผ


      1. Your wish may come true ……..a beautiful lunatic for sure is somewhere out there ……wait till your words reach her and she’d be enchanted till eternity ๐Ÿ˜„


  4. This is awesomely amazing my dear friend Drew, a perfect date for anyone. Itโ€™s always important to know somebody instead of trying to know some โ€œbodyโ€ first. Your words and plans make for a romantic date thatโ€™ll have any woman signing up for reservations for a second date my friend. A dinner at The Gentlemanโ€™s Diner with Drew sounds like something any lady would do! Very nice my friend.๐ŸŒน


    1. My dear, look at me. I am finally getting to old messages. So don’t apologize fgor being MIA.
      Thank you for your beautiful words and for your special wishes. I am touched.
      Alyssa, thank you for everything. So appreciate your and your warm heart.
      Be well.
