First Dates: Clothes and Conversations

One of my guy friends had a first date with a young lady last weekend. He met her at a religious function so he was a bit taken aback at how she was when they went out. Apparently, she was dressed provocatively, something he thought inappropriate for someone her age (ouch?), especially on a first date.

He went on describe the way she used profanity, made several sexual remarks, and pretty much made him blush. Admittedly, my friend is super conservative and in my opinion high strung. However, the fact that he expected someone he met at a religious function to behave in a certain way, isn’t completely unreasonable. At the same time, are first date impressions reliable?

I do have to wonder, though, if we often meet people and have some preconceived ideas of how they should act or behave. Was the young lady projecting one image, yet behaved in a way that contradicted that? Perhaps, she was. However, should she get ruled out by the first date clothes and conversation?

Do you think we should judge a book by its cover and the first few pages of the book? If you were bothered the way someone behaved on the first date, do you grant a second one?

Do you ever think about the way dress on a first date? Are you careful about what you discuss or talk about?

Celisea, have you ever been tailgating? It is so much fun! Take this short quiz to determine if tailgating is for you:

1. Do you like to laugh and have a good time?
2. Do you like to eat and/or drink?
3. Do you like to be outside?

If you answered yes to 1 or more of the questions above, tailgating may be for you!

So Willie/Purp?

wld u say they have a team that’s gon compete this year? For the title ofcourse!

How do u rate the current team going into the new season.

I’m a fairweather Falcon fan and I’ll be on them on tv ofcourse, when they’re winning.

The moment that defense drops ball on some silly touchdown,I’m changing channels to the Colts game! :lol: that way I don’t feel too hurt Monday morning!

But I do like mr Blank a lot as a person.

Good brother! Lol

Simp – To be on the safe side; Moreno will be cut within 1-2 yrs. The great Tebow will be gone within the year. get you an Elway Throwback and you good. Denver sux and will sux for the near future. Stick with your Falcons they will be alright for quite a few years.

Exiled – pick a team and ride with them. You can’t just chase a current winner, Otherwise you wouldn’t be a Liverpool fan (hahaha). Falcons have one of the best teams in the NFL. They won’t win it all but they are very good all around and will contend and possibly make it to the SB for the next few years.
