the first date.

11.25.13

If you’re still single in your twenties, the dating scene tends to transform into quite the interview process. And it’s horrible. First dates now consist of serious questions and plans. Instead of playing the ‘what’s your favorite ____’ game, you’re both giving an in depth background of your education, employment, and most favorable traits. Rather than having a fun conversation, you’re discussing where you see yourself in a couple years. Do you like kids? Do you want a dog? Are you financially stable?

In one evening, you’re both trying to figure out whether or not you’ll fit in each other’s lives. That’s a lot to take in for just the first date. But, we’re older now. We may not want to waste our time if we know it just isn’t going to work. We don’t have a lot of time, according to certain family members or friends in relationships. I should just finish my soup, shake hands, and say “thank you, while I believe you have many qualities that would fit this position, I’ll be heading in a different direction”.

Hmm, no wonder people have turned to online dating. I should just check out linkedin profiles and skip the rest. Unless, I want a nice meal of course.

    I enjoy the way you begin each post with a picture containing a quotation. The consistency of design leads me to believe that you make them yourself. May I ask what program you use? In addition to enjoying the content of your posts, I’ve enjoyed scrolling through and just reading the quotations you’ve selected. Great fun ^_^
