No dinner dating
These things do not happen when you meet for a drink.
It could also be that my best dates have, invariably, been drink dates.
(Especially if it’s sushi, where the inevitable question of “Can I fit this whole crazy crab roll in my mouth?
I want to get lost in conversation, wondering which is putting me more at ease: my drink, or my date.
If you don't remember what that looks like anymore -- and I can't blame you for that -- here are a few things that are supposed to happen: If you don't feel nervous, then you're not excited about the date.
And if you're not excited about the date, then why in the world are you going on the date in the first place? We don't go on dates because we find someone who truly catches our interest, but we go on dates because it's an activity that fills some time -- and possibly gets us laid.
Mostly because no one seems to understand what dating is supposed to be anymore.
These days, what gets labeled as a "date" is really just an unnecessarily extravagant booty call. You should be capable of differentiating the two and approaching the two different scenarios differently.
