I think my date double-booked on me. Last weekend, we agreed to meet up after work for a little “happy hour” and flirting. After a couple of hours, he seemed to be ready to move on to the next stop. Needless to say, I wasn’t invited. He wasn’t exactly checking his watch every few minutes but sometimes a girl just knows.
He sent a text message the next day, I declined to meet up with him later in the weekend. It was not because of the double-booking, I had other plans already. I am actually guilty of double-booking guys in one day, so I couldn’t really get mad that someone did it to me.
When you schedule dates or agree to go out with someone, do you pay much attention to the time of day or the day of the week that they suggest? If you are “penciled in” for drinks or meet up for coffee, do you consider that insulting?
My friend Greg said that he “threw me a date bone” because I only was granted the less then desirable happy hour hook up. I have to admit, I thought he was just being frugal, it never crossed my mind that he was selling me short with an after work meet up. There goes my ego, again.
Do guys send some kind of hidden message by the amount of time they spend with you on a date? Do men notice what days/times women are available to see them?
What is the acceptable amount of time for the first couple of dates with someone you like? What if you are “lukewarm” about them and need some time to find a deeper attraction?
I really think the “outside the box” dates really are helpful in these cases. The pressure is off to be “on” the whole time or slip into a date interview mode.
I am trying to figure out who I should take to the Professional Bull Riding. It needs to be someone who enjoys shaking things up and would make it even an more fun experience.
How open are you for a non-traditional date? Do you think daytime dates that last a significantly longer time then an evening date is a good idea? Do you ever put a time limit on your dates?
