Well, Jeremy is home from California for the holidays. Met him and Kyle for dinner last night at the steak house. So we're talking about various topics and Jeremy makes the following statement: "I'm not sure, but I think I may have had a date." Well, we were all laughing like there was no tomorrow. But besides being incredibly funny at the time, it brought up a good point. What exactly constitutes a date?
As a single person, I have often found myself in situations where I wasn't really sure if what was happening was actually a date. There have been times when what I thought may have been a date clearly wasn't a date in the mind of the girl, and vice versa.
You may find this hard to believe, but I have a sneaking suspicion that sometimes girls may not even decide whether or not it is a date until they're right in the middle of it. Then they're like, "Wow, he DOES look like Steve-O, this IS a date" or "Ugh, he really smells like an old gym shoe, we are definitely JUST friends." I know that is hard to believe, and maybe I'm wrong, but that is one theory I have.
So anyway, in your mind, what makes it a date? And I'm not talking about the obvious factors. Obviously, if there is significant lip contact or one party ends up pregnant, it was more than likely a date. I'm talking about cases where it isn't so obvious. I would like to hear your thoughts, because most of the time with girls, I have no idea what's happening. And also because just asking her if she considers it a date is just too hard... or too easy. Whichever.
"Here's to the nights we felt alive. Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry. Here's to goodbye, tomorrow's gonna come too soon..."
