    Yes, it's True. I've never been on a Date

    before. I have tried dating sites but for some reason I haven't had any luck. Maybe I'm trying to hard or I'm just not having very much luck. I guess I don't know.

    So I haven't had an actual girlfriend

    since I was in 7th grade, and how we met was that my friend back then set us up on a kind of blind date. Two weeks later we went out again on a double date (we kind of became bf and gf a week after we met), and on that double date she brought her friend and was more focus on...

    I´ve never been invited to a real date

    and I´ve never been on a real date. And I don´t think that I ever in my life would go to a real date - even not if somebody would invite me. I am just not used to that.

    Talk about not being on a "real" date.

    I've NEVER been on a date to even consider defining a no existent experience a "non-real" one. : (

    But gosh, I can't wait

    until I do. I'll get to spend hours searching for that perfect hairstyle, that perfect outfit, & that perfect makeup tutorial. & I'll get to have myself look all good for my date (: It's just so exciting.

    Until recently, I wasn't sure of the difference

    between a date and hanging out one-on-one. As far as I know, a date is hanging out except with romantic feelings or intentions. I have gone on "dates" before, but I feel like those didn't really count.

    iv been on a double date with some friends

    before. but iv also asked someone to go with me to a more fancy restraint like olive garden, her mother would never her let her leave town. I believe a good date should require you to dress nice, eat in a fancy restaurant, and have a good time there and afterwards.

    and we went and got food I'd want to pay for my share. But I like the idea of him buying me the food because that's romantic. I'm confused! Which should I do? Hahaha

    I've never had a real date. You know, he likes you, you like him, he asks you on a date, gets dressed up, brings you flowers, takes you somewhere nice for dinner, maybe a movie, and then a sweet little goodnight kiss. I always wanted that. But I never dated people who were...

    I Regret It, But No

    In my fantasy, a real date is when the guy dresses up, buys you flowers, comes to your door to pick you up, and takes you to some restaurant or something. The kind of date you always see in romantic comedies. The kind of date that ends with a cute kiss when he brings you back...
