Poll question: Should I Date This 24 Year Old Guy?
He's 24, graduate of Notre Dame, is Irish & German, speaks French, works downtown and has been chasing me since we had, err, "relations" a few months ago.

So should I DU? Your opinion means a lot to me!

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

7. If you like him enough and get to know him good enough, yeah sure
Just a warning though being I have a German-Irish father, they can get mean when they drink.

Kraut-Micks when they drink too much in excess are scary, repeat after me dude. See I am not crazy because I am also a silly slav :). Anyhow good luck, I am still trying to find a nice girl to date.

25. Yeah, I been there.
I always say I kissed a LOT of frogs to find my prince - I dated for 16 years before I met my husband. AND had my heart stomped on more times than I care to remember. But if I hadn't been willing to keep trying - I wouldn't now be married to the greatest guy I know - 10 years last month.

I'd say go for it - but take it slow. Falling in love is a decision - don't do it until you're ready.

15. Be hard to get - just to make sure he's serious
You're obviously worth waiting for, or you wouldn't be hanging out here with all the smart, creative people.

34. You would merely be disappointed...
...for Bat Boy was forged in a lab by a demented Photoshopper and, unfortunately, he forgot to add all the fun parts.

Drat! ****Hiss!****

35. Why not?
As you said, he's been after you, so he must find you interesting. Also, if he were a total creepazoid, I think that either you wouldn't be asking us, or that would have made it into your description of the situation.


If you're afraid of being hurt, well, that's natural, but unless you want to be alone, you're going to have to trust somebody, sometime. Go into it with few expectations, and if he falls short of what you really want, then be glad you found out early. Every unsuccessful dating situation hopefully teaches us more about what we want, and don't want in another person.


Don't let the ethnic or ND thing throw you, my father is Irish-German, and Mom is a tremendous Notre Dame fan, and they've been married for over 52 years. Other than acting like "Ozzie and Harriet" on occasion, they're pretty likable people. (Well, not Dad so much since the election...)


Good luck, and happy dating!
