Hildie! I’m so glad you got out of there reasonably safe and sane! :yay:
You are WAY too good of a woman to ever settle for a date involving a 45 minute drive BY YOU!!! If they can’t drive to meet you, don’t go for it! :tap:
At the very least, make sure you meet in the middle - don’t you be putting out for them! Even if the putting out is just driving! :poke:
Like the other’s said, go for just a cup of coffee or a walk, forget a dinner date until after you’ve met him once or twice… - can you say romance? Yes, I knew you could… :cheering:
You can do this! You is armed and dangerous! You got’s knittin’ needles! Take on the world of dating with an attitude!
I consider the sunglasses a cost of the evening, unless they’re prescription or undeniably expensive, who would want to be in contact with this guy again? :shrug:
Ok, my horror story. First date went ok - calls me for a second, I happened to be busy that weekend with a prior engagement of friends in a small apt. Get a call while at said engagement, his 20 yo son had just been killed. Second date, his son’s funeral. :sad: His out-of-town family thought it we’d been dating a long time, and I ended up taking care of them… after 6 months one of his friends told me he couldn’t stand to look at me because of the memories… :help:
