I think you SHOULD tell us, then we can all go along and 'just happen to be there' and say 'Hi - how you doing' etc and make you look even more popular than I'm sure you already are, would that impress her?

I would go to the Crown & Greyhound in Dulwich Village - and for eats, there's Pizza Express or the pasta place across the road. Can't go far wrong there.

Pizza Express on a first blind date! Yeah if you're both 16 or she's gonna bring her mum as a shaperone or her 3 year old son! Come on, it's a bit mundane for as a date venue isn't it? Stick to the fine, local, and good eateries we have in the palace. If you do want to go cheap, cheering and ironic go to Lorenzo's - it's always noisey and fun in there.

You mean this isn't The Truman Show?

We went to the Crown And Greyhound and had a drink (or two) as we both knew it. We had a good chat and some laughs but I didn't think we really clicked however she has just texted me this morning so we are going to arrange another date and see how it goes.

That was my first blind date and it wasn't as weird as I thought it was going to be. I can thoroughly recommend going on dates with complete strangers you've never seen! ;)

Aye well I could always start giving out application forms for the (coughs) "Uncle Wilf School Of Charming Women." :angry:

The first part of the syllabus is entitled "Scampi Fries Aren't Sophisticated."
The course peaks early.

My own sage advice from the early days of dating...

One of my good mates used the direct approach and said 'I like you'... he didn't get the response he expected but it cuts out the pre-tense doesn't it

I also thought asking a girl swimming was a good idea... oh the naive days are a gem...

Neither of these were blind dates, but I bet they present a certain charm and excitement in the mystery of it all...

Yes going for a non-threatening, neutral environment..... swimming might not be at the top of the list.

How do you hold a conversation to get to know somebody whilst doing strenuous lenghts of a pool?

"Hello treacle, would you like to come swimming with me?" Not up there in the "Top 10 Opening Lines For Succesful Relationships."

:P

But seriously... I think SE19 is full of decent places to go in this context (aside from the NSC's Olympic sized pool...).
When I started going out with Mrs Uncle Wilf we used to spend a lot of time in the triangle, normally this involved her spending my money.

:lol:

Ah what a response that one's generated...

The key term there was 'naive'. As a man of the world back then, I used to go cycling, play a bit of football, swimming. I just thought of an activity to do. Back in those, even that was a bit more exotic than 'McDonalds'... because at 16, Joannas is top of your list...

Still, was sharing for some mirth...

What about the tricky 4th 5th 6th dates... when any of these things can happen

A: you really like them, they don't like you

B: They really like you, you don't like them

C: You fancy their mate/they fancy yours

D: You've been on 6 dates allready and neither of you have made a move, now it's the elephant in the room that neither of you can acknowledge.

E: You mum invites them in and they get along like a house on fire


awww the days of dating.

Swimming! every hormonial boys nightmare!
