How many dates does it take?

My friend Justin recently asked me, “How many dates does it take for you to figure out if you want to know more about someone?” – which sort of made me pause. I hadn’t thought of an arbitrary number before because I guess I always knew on date one whether or not there was a connection. Is one date enough, though?

Chemistry is such a weird and unpredictable thing. A lot of times, there are no sparks on the first date, or second date! Heck, you may not feel the boom until date four! The problem is – we usually don’t wait that long for it to show up!

First dates are not everything. Perhaps we all should give our potentials a little time to “cook” to see how hot things could get. Do you think three dates is enough to know if you want to continue seeing someone?

How many dates does it take before you decide the chemistry is there or not there?

What do you like to see, think, or feel about someone to decide whether or not you two are compatible?

Happy Friday!

C~ When I was at home after little Cents was born, I swear my IQ went down about 20 pts. just from watching daytime TV. Sometimes, when I am waiting at the jail, they have it on in the waiting room and I am amazed at how invested people can get in those shows!

S/H~ They are not saying that she is not guilty of jaywalking. They are saying that her jaywalking did not ultimately cause her child’s death. Here is how you argue that point.

Chick is a single mother who had been at work all day before picking up her children and taking CCT home. She gets off the bus directly across from her apartment complex between 6-7 PM. (It’s dusk) In order to cross the street legally (in other words, at a crosswalk) she would have had to walk 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile in each direction while pushing one child in a stroller and holding the hand of the other. (Along with any other items she may have had with her). Therefore, she crossed the street at the same point everyone else crossed the street. They attorney is arguing that it was the circumstances (i.e.- dusk, no crosswalk, speeding driver) that actually caused the death of the child, not the mother’s decision to jaywalk. Make sense?
