39. There has to be liquor involved
Edited on Fri Jan-26-07 12:29 PM by AngryAmish
No food. Most gals have issues with food so eating dinner is fraught with decisions they would rather not make on the first date.

Liquor lowers inhibitions and gets people talking. And no, I did not date non-drinkers because they are no fun.

Plus who wants to spring for someone's meal when you are just getting to know them? They may be climgy, crazy etc. and all those things are found out after a few drinks.

I made the most progress at quiet joints at off-peak hours. That way one does not have to shout to be heard (and my hearing is shot so I have trouble following conversations in loud places).

My dating time is over but that is my accumulated wisdom of too many years of dating.

My last first date: <www.greenmilljazz.com /> Saw Kurt Elling (sp?).
