While on a first date, you begin to realise that the person you’re seeing is actually someone you used to know. But now they seem very different…
I let out a shaky laugh, “I don’t know you.”
His hands slip from my cheeks and into waves of blond hair, “Are you sure?”
“Yes, I-.” My breath catches as he pulls me in for a kiss.
As our lips touch my hands grab his, and put them by his side. I step back from his embrace, as the memory hit me like a tidal wave.
“Daniel?” I asked, my lips touching his ear.
“What are we waiting for?...
So...I need opinions.
I smoothed out my poofy, purple dress and took a step forward. The ballroom was full of pastel dresses and suits wandering around the room. My name would be announced as soon as the DJ saw me. Obviously, this party was for me.
Despite the excitement of the event, nerves fluttered through my veins. I couldn’t mess this up. I had to be perfect. People I couldn’t name waved at me, sipping from fanc...
“Simply,” she said smoothly, “I’m not your date. Well, not this time.”
“You’re not—you’re not what?”
My leg jittered under the table, my foot tapping quietly on the stone floor. Silence clogged the empty pub like smoke. It stifled the room, made it stuffy, hard to breathe, to think.
Usually, I’d revel in the quiet, welcome it, but this was maddening.
It was dead silent.
Even the beat of my ...
First and Last Date EVER.
He walked in
His head up while he was raising his chin
He looked like an old friend
But we hadn't seen each other since we met our end
It looked like fate
That we were going on a date
Something about him was different
Like he was less Considerate
Something about him had changed
Something oddly strange
It was like a light flickered
All things considered
When he took me out to walk in the rain...
First Date, Second Impression
Sitting in a dim lit bar, John prattled on about the breakup with his latest girlfriend. They had only been together a little over five weeks, a personal record for him, but he wasn’t taking the split very well. To her credit, at least his ex-girlfriend ended the relationship in person. The previous two broke up with him over the phone, one via voice mail. On some level, it was progress.
“Magical” first date
This was not too long ago before I gave Danny a chance So we were sitting in the dinning room of a really big time restaurant that he picked and Things were going pretty good he and I like similar things and felt like he was a generally decent person at least as we were laughing at some joke he had about school I had something dawned on me but kept quiet for a little while he somehow had a big tel...
The Flaring of Her Nose; He Knows
Those eyes, they’re so familiar. I’m sure I’ve seen her somewhere before.
The way she glides her hair past her ear, and the way her nose flares when her smile shows.
I swear I’ve seen this girl before. But I can’t put my finger on it.
“Have we met?” She’s looking at me, a little nervous. Blushing with embarrassment, avoiding eye contact.
“Actually yeah we have now you mention it” she starts t...
I saw her standing by the front doors of the Dave and Busters, I couldn’t for the life of me understand why she agreed to have a date with me. I guess she must’ve been desperate, but hell I appreciate it.
“Hey how are you! Samantha right?” I asked as I went in for a hug.
“Oh my gosh! HI! Yes! John, right?” She said as her teeth seemed to sparkle.
“The one and only, but hey we can have the form...
Change Isn’t Always Good
It slammed into me like a swarm of angry bees, my blind date is actually someone I knew. A kid I used to go to school with and my neighbor when I was younger, he was the one at the back of class; always silent, never social, even quiet frightening.
I never saw him at school events but he was active at home. He always dug in the yard and filled them with random objects. It started with small th...
About a year after Mummy went nuts, Walker began to sneak out of the house at night.
“Chicks to see,” he explained to me one day, as we lay sprawled and lifeless across the couches, listening to the lilting sounds of Mummy’s oral self-flagellation, echoing up the stairs.
“You?” I snorted. “Bullshit. You wouldn’t know what to do with a female if she ran up and bit you.”
Walker smiled from wher...
