I actually have two good first date stories....
My real First Date is a good one. It was with an ex many many many years ago. It was his Birthday and Valentine's Day. He was going for his Driver's License test that day and he was hoping to pick me up to take me to dinner. I remember calling him when I got home from school to see when we were going and he sounded different. I finally was able to figure out what was wrong. Well, he failed the driving test and was embarassed to tell me that I had to drive or his parents had to take us. I ended up picking him and driving to dinner. We dated for about four years after that first date.
As for my first date with Charlie - this one involved a dinner, a car and a friend in jail...ahh college.
Charlie had promised to take me on a date after Spring Break that year. We got back and set it up. We ate at a restaurant in Columbia called Mangia Mangia. I remember being really nervous but also really excited. Dinner was great and we had a blast.
After dinner we went back to Charlie's apartment to get ready to go out with everyone for the night. We all headed downtown - again I drove, must be my thing on first dates. We went to our usual bars and had fun. Well after the bars close in Columbia sometimes there was something called a Crappy Hour. So, we got the address and piled into our car.
On our way, we see our friends Jared and Shana - so we stop to see if they want a ride. They tell us that they can't find our friend Josh, they hop in and we drive around looking for him. About two hours later we never made it to the party and I ended up going home. Charlie got a call later that our friend was in jail. He got out the next morning and I think Charlie and I went on another date later that week.
