I'm thinking that both of us should do a little live-tweeting--you know, give some real-time updates of how things are going (but not so many that we are distracted from the date itself).
But I think it would also be fun to make Hot Band Guy fill out a dating feedback form after the fact. What questions should I ask him--about me, and how I come off in a (admittedly totally bizarre) dating context?
And about dating in general, things he likes and doesn't like?
xxx----------------------------dear commenters:-Barbie: I like your point about making a new friend. But it can be tough to stay in that mindset when a dude goes in for the smooch at the end of Date No. Which more or less = I'm a commitment-phobe, doesn't it? I guess I feel like I'm *myself* always--for better and worse! I have NO IDEA why you think HBG is such a great match for me (um, have I mentioned that he is unemployed?
1 ...-Ellen: yes, I would say for sure, if a dude smacks another woman'srear end in front of you on Date No. -Amber: I teased Arlo in the same way--saying, what was this, about his not thinking Hot Band Guy was so hot? ) but thank you for rolling up your sleeves to help find me love and happiness ...
I think it's just, you know, human nature--I can see myself complaining in the same way about some chick Arlo thought was a knock-out if I didn't think she was all that. I like your point about people not really being themselves on the first date.
Being a Supportive Girlfriend Developing the Relationship Taking Care of Yourself Community Q&A Dating a musician, regardless of gender, is not always easy.
In fact, the life of a musician can make relationships hard.
Nonetheless, you can work to make your relationship better and be the best partner you can be to him or her, though don't forget to expect the same in return.
Dear lovelies: Well, the comment-o-sphere has been seeing a lot of action these days, has it not? The big news of this week has been Hot Band Guy asking me out on a date--right there at the bottom of Friday's blog, right in front of all of you.
(That, of course, was after I blogged about him blogging about me.)And I quote: Since the ice has been broken here, maybe we can get a drink or something later in the week?
If you are bored by the time you finish your club soda, I will buy you a second one and find another dude for you to flirt with!
Obviously, if things don't work out so great, Hot Band Guy has got to find me another dude--he dug that hole for himself.
But what other stipulations should we put on the date?
