I Have Never Been On a Real Date

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 528 People

    By "real," I mean, I've never met a stranger,

    they asked me on a date, and then we went somewhere together at later and specified time to learn more about each other.

    Third Wheel

    Maybe it's my fault for not getting a boyfriend in high school. I didn't think I was ugly but I didn't think I was the prettiest either. I was kind of wallflower but I wasn't a total loner. I had good friends I could laugh with and trust. I guess when it came to guys I just wasn...

    Not Sad Anymore

    A pot to every lid- so the saying goes. I suppose that i am not a pot then! I am an awesome person and i work hard. I am intelligent. I am outgoing. I am athletic. Still- never had 1 real date. I am unsure why but it might be beyond my control. So i smile each day and am proud to...

    Would Be Nice...

    The last time I did a date proper was...well, I don't know, really. All I know is the kinda "dates" I tend to get are fast food and a movie at mines or his place, which never gets finished because either he wants some or I do and boom, that happens and he leaves or I'm dropped...

    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.

    Yup, that's pretty much the truth.

    The headline just sums it all up.

    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.

    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...

    Dates. . .

    I have never been on a date outside of someone I was in a relationship with. I have always wanted to ask a girl on a date but don't know what to do, even if she said yes, then what? What would I talk about? I want to go on a date, I want to pop that cherry so then I...

    Sad

    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...

    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...

    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. : (

    I'm 25 and have never been out on a real date!

    Really? I have a child [I'm devoted] but I've never been to the movies or out with a man. I've never really had a boyfriend either. I've had FWB situations but that's it. I've always felt it was because I don't think I'm attractive. I'm fat (but I own that ****!) and I have a...
