I was told about this cute little tag circulating the internet, so I decided to answer the questions for all of you!
After all, I’ve told you a few first date horror stories, so why not share a little bit about what I think (is this the proper word in this case) about first dates and things? It’s definitely a cute little tag, albeit short, and I would love for you all to share your answers with me!
Usually for first dates, I’ll opt for one of two outfits. If it’s super nice out, I’ll wear a dress and a cardigan. If it’s colder, I’ll opt for jeggings, a cute blouse, cardigan, and my heeled ankle booties. Usually for first dates, it’s a chill kind of atmosphere, whether it is casual drinks, coffee, or lunch.
If it’s dinner or something nicer (more upscale drinks), I’ll wear a dress with heeled booties, wedges, etc, depending on the place.
I like to wear my hair in loose curls.
THE FIRST DATE TAG:
1. How long does it take you to get ready for a date?
For hair and makeup, I’ll do my hair and makeup in the morning and go about my day. I’m really busy, so I’d like to be able to go from class/work to home to change super fast, to my date. I never reapply my makeup, I just do little touch-ups as needed. First dates, or dates in general aren’t occasions where I pull out the glam squad. After all, you’re trying to be yourself right?
I would say 20 minutes, for me to change, touch up a little, eat a small snack (lol, I told you guys I would always be honest!), and to gossip and talk a little with my roommate or friends and lollygag.
2. Whats your idea of a perfect first date?
d) Adventurous dates
Okay, are adventurous dates supposed to be separate from dinner dates? Like can you not go on an adventurous date and dinner? I mean, I’ve been on dates where I’ve done both.
I would pick dinner + adventure, but I would be hesistant for a guy to cook me dinner. I’ve gotten sick countless times!
3. What would you gravitate more towards to wear on a date …
4. On the date of your choice what makeup would you wear
a) Girl next door
b) Smokey and sexy
c) Bold lip
e. Makeup that I was wearing that day…I would probably pair my Fresh Lip Treatment with my eye look, though!
5. Your date says you have half an hour to be ready what do you do?
Is this a pre-planned date? Because if it was pre-planned I would be unphased. If he’s randomly calling me and saying he’s going to pick me up in thirty, I would politely decline. I’m really, really busy!
6. Your date asks for the bill, do you …
a) Offer to pay – with actual meaning to pay
b) Make a fake fuss – with no intention of paying
c) Expect him to pay straight away
I do none of those. I reach for my purse, and dig for my wallet. If he stops me, I say thank you, and don’t fight too much. If he doesn’t stop me, I pay for my half. I always go into a date expecting to pay for myself, but if he stops me and wants to pay, then that is fine. I won’t be insulted if he pays, and I won’t be insulted if I pay for myself.
Do you go out with him again?
This tag is poorly numbered, and there is no context for this question. Just because he pays, does not mean I’ll go out with him again. I don’t like wasting anyone’s time–mine or theirs, so I would only go out with him again if I had a really nice time and see potential for the two of us!
7. It’s time to say goodbye you really like your date do you …
c) Kiss on the cheek
e) Full on smooch
Even if he’s amazing, I would hug, smile, and say I had a nice time. Gotta be a little hard to get, right? 😉
