I don't date.

Day Three: My idea of a perfect first date.

I'll be honest and just say that I don't love this one.  Mostly because I have absolutely no idea what my perfect first date would be. I certainly haven't dated enough to have had it yet and I don't even know what I'm looking for right now.

So, I'll just throw out what I have in my head and hope that will do. I apologize if it's a bit rambly.

Picture, if you will, the party scene in Say Anything.  
This is it.
Only, I'd like it to be at a social dance; maybe swing or blues.  I'd be dancing with other men and he'd be dancing with other women, but every once and a while he'd just find me and make sure that I'm doing alright. It would be perfectly pleasant and fun and there wouldn't be any pressure at all.  Every few dances, we would find each other and have a really good, deep, connected dance.
Afterward, we would walk and hold hands and talk.  He wouldn't think the things I said were too silly. In fact, he would agree and build upon my thoughts, weaving them into a beautiful tapestry of joy. (I'll pause while you vomit over the mushy nature of that last sentence.)
He'd be funny and I'd be clever and we would laugh and flirt and just be happy.

That's basically it for now. I'm sure I'll reread this tomorrow and think, "Man, I'm a total fool." I wouldn't be wrong.

What's your idea of a "perfect" first date?

Update 1/12/2011:
What the eff was ^that all about? 
Man...I'm a total fool. 
Maybe I don't date because I say crap like that in public....or maybe its because I'm kind of a hussy, try too hard, and make people mildly uncomfortable.
Eh....the world may never know.
All I know is that [that] would not be my perfect first date. I don't even know what would be, but definitely not that.

  1. I love this—the uncertainty, the mushiness, and the update. Because that's probably what would happen if I wrote about my ideal first date. Which, incidentally, will happen in a couple of days, because I'm copying you and doing this challenge. (You're just that awesome.)
