Dating from boy to man Part 1 The first date

by bernardtwindwil


I was nervouser than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. I wasn't sure my underarm deodorant would hold up. I was wearing my Sunday go to meeting pants.

How am I going to act?

Damn, I hope I don't fart in front of her. I don't know about putting my arm around her at the picture show. Holding hands is cool if my hands aren't too sweaty.

Kiss her goodnight.

I haven't eaten garlic or onions all week. If I don't try will she think I find her ugly. What should I do with my eyeglasses when I kiss. Tongue or no tongue. That is a huge unknown.

Supper before or after the movie?

Will she get hungry during the picture show? Will I, will my stomach grumble? What if she orders spaghetti?

Comfortable​, hell no!

What if she is more aggressive than I want to be? Will I offend her? Do people die on their first date?

What if she's not my type?

When do I know? How can I ditch her? What if she invites me in and I don't want to go? Can I just leave?

The date is in an hour, is it too late to call it off?

Will she be angry? Will it ruin my reputation? Can I move away and change my name? Is this how General Custer felt?

Hahaha, this was cute, this still showed so much consideration for the partner despite himself being in a fix. Nice job! :)

@michaelschulze I admire your courage to date at our age. I can see what would be internal conflicts. Does she expect the 1970s date or a 2016 date? I think you could do the subject justice. I encourage you to write something. I think it would be a "WOW" event.

Being extremely shy and suffering anxiety makes every date a first date at 63 i don't know weather to hold her hand huge her or run away makes life interesting at least
