    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.

    If I went on a date with a boy

    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

    Yup, that's pretty much the truth.

    The headline just sums it all up.

    I guess I have not been on a real date.

    I'm happy and in love. Unless you count a BBQ and a bonfire a date.

    I'd really like to start dating soon.

    :) I think it'll be nice to spend hours just getting to know someone.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    I never been on a date

    where I'll feel comfortable to be around or hang around with that certain person. Because usually I go out on dates with guys who were nice to me at first but in the end just wanted me to in bed with them. No thank you. I have a lot on my mind and it doesn't include making love...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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. : (

    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...

    and including my current one, have never been taken out on an official date..I don't really understand what a date is...Never had that Hollywood romance scene lol It doesn't bother me I just think its strange how none of them have made plans to take me out on a "date"
