So here's the thing: I don't think I've ever been on an official date with another guy before.
I say this because he and I never agreed it was a date to begin with.
" stop and ask yourself "Why are you always justifying your way out of dating? Dating from the perspective of "it's all about sex" can pay off if that's how you truly feel.
Think of it this way: If you can step out of the closet, you can certainly step out of your rut! It's you being truly you, so let your authentic self shine. If every date you go on with a gay guy leads you to say, "He was nice, but ... Well, it depends on your position — no pun intended.
It's a reasonable concern, but if he's willing to meet you in public, chances are he is the same 6'3″, Italian, “Orphan Black”-loving nerd you conversed with online (in which case, I hate you even more). Paris Close is an editor and editor-in-chief of Paperback Paris.
He lives in Michigan, of all places, has no chill for Andy Cohen, Italian men and Italian ice cream (gelato? Any combination of the three could literally be lethal. Paris Close is an editor and editor-in-chief of Paperback Paris.
It is easy to spend so much time concentrating on the things you should do on a first date that you forget all of the important first date faux pas.
Have faith that you are enough for the hot guy to like you, because we all have faults – even him. Eat messy food If you are going on a dinner date, you need to choose your meal carefully. Slurping plus the chance of spilling hot liquid on yourself (or worse, on your date) is certain to kill any kind of romantic atmosphere you are trying to create.
Similarly disastrous food choices include pasta with sauce (again, a high chance of sauce becoming plastered all over you) and burritos (guacamole smeared across your upper lip isn’t a hot look). This is very simply because nobody wants to date somebody who can’t control their own behaviours.
Instead stick to dry foods that can be chopped into small pieces. Drink yourself stupid We’ve all had those first dates when we drink too much because of nerves. While having a drink (or five) might loosen you up, there is such a thing as being too loose.
And, it's happening in like half an hour, so get some pants on.
Considering he invited you out for drinks and not someplace shady-looking, I'm guessing his face matches his profile. I'm so happy for you, Nate and your butt, that a part of me wishes it were my own reality instead of the singular, cat-filled one I'm living right now! That's why God invented Sia and red wine, and OMG, please don't let Christian Zamora see me like this because really, I just want my first date to be with him.
