Write a paragraph about a first date, where you include an adverb in every sentence.
Adverbs describe verbs (eg quickly, quietly, excitedly). Try to fit them into your sentences alongside appropriate verbs, so the adverbs don't feel forced.
I sat awkwardly at the restaurant’s table.
It was valentines and everyone else had date who appeared early or on time , except for me.
I sat sadly and alone at the table as I stared at my phone. Waiting patiently for a text or a call , after all she was late.
Suddenly, an hour passed and people saw that I was upset. They tried to comfort me, I then decided to leave quickly.
I paid my bill awkwa...
It was finally the day of our first date, I remember how he asked me out rather excitedly. I nervously accepted as we made arrangements for dinner today. I slowly slid on my favorite dress, It was a pale pink with splashes of color from the flowers strewn about it. I diligently applied my make up as I glanced at the clock. Before I knew it his car had arrived in my driveway quickly followed by him...
He watches her excitedly from across the room. Lauren is beautifully dressed in a navy and white polka dot halter dress, her bare back showing off the deep tan she has gotten from her summer in Capri. Henry is speechless as he reaches out to hug her and give her a kiss on the cheek. “You look stunning tonight,” he says and she shyly replies with a “thank you”. Henry takes her hand and Lauren ...
I quickly scrambled into the house
Nervously rambling about what I got at the store
After longingly talking on the phone for months
He slowly closed the door
We passionately kissed, It felt surprisingly natural
After virtually bonding online
The time slowly passed, the day finally arrived
And now this love was perfectly mine...
I waited for him to arrive anxiously. I desperately hoped it would be a good experience. It was definitely awkward and uncomfortable. I tolerated his rude behavior patiently because I really did like him, but he really didn’t seem like Prince Charming at all. The date was meeting his family, which was ok, except they seemed just as weird as he was....
I had wanted to get his details secretly. I bravely asked him and a few collateral others to take a selfie with me. That’s when I curtly asked him out for dinner. My butterflies fluttered excitedly when he accepted. I took him out for an Asian cuisine where I went through all my life thoroughly. At this point, I hadn’t realised that I had captured his eyes irresistibly. It was getting late and he ...
The first date with him was undeniably awkward. We began with a leisurely walk through my local woods. The weather was nice, the sun shone down brightly on what should’ve been a perfect day.
We walked my favourite path and he kept me entertained, chatting animatedly as we strolled along.
He had a sense of adventure that drove me to the, in retrospect, awful decision that we would try a different...
The evening began slowly. Both men nervously adjusted their collars and fiddled with their water glasses. The waiter tactfully kept his distance, allowing them the time to get used to each other and their surroundings before asking for their orders. Carefully, the men read through the menu, overthinking everything. If he ordered extravagantly, each wondered, would the other judge him for it? If he...
She shyly entered the coffee, searching. A short, green-haired person waved back rapidly. Taking a deep breath, she confidently strode this this mystery person, plotting witty things to say, going over what was discussed in the chats, and trying to remember the names of all their lizards.
And she crashed quite ungracefully into the waitress, sending several cup of caffeinated goodness all over...
Marleys heart pounded rapidly in her chest when she spotted her date waiting for her at the far end of the restaurant. He appeared to be tapping his fingers anxiously, glancing down at a lit up screen that sat in his hand. She took a deep breath and moved shakily towards the table, her ankles wobbling in her new black heels.
When she got to the table, she cleared her throat and feebly greeted hi...
