    Hey, sometimes I buy a green banana with the knowledge that it'll be ripe soon enough. Don't count yourself out just yet.

    I think I should clarify that it's not that I'm attracted to dbags, it's that a) I seem to attract/encourage them, and b) people I know set me up with them a lot. They go, "oh, I know this guy at my office who works out! You work out! It's a great match!"

    I've been going on pretty much exclusively first dates all year. Because I know within ten seconds if the guy is going to be able to converse at the level I need, or if he's going to have opinions that are going to make me want to punch him. (I once had a date who said he was a really big Civil War buff--which, cool, I'm into history as well--and then went on to "teach" me very condescendingly about how the whole thing could have been avoided if Lincoln had just bought all the slaves from the South and set them free. And this was one of the smarter first dates I've had.)
    Awwwww ;(

    I once had a date with a guy who PRETENDED he was a doctor. I started talking biochem and... Well. That was that.

    I like the older ones. My BF is 62. I'm 48. I just went backpacking for 2 weeks and the youngest guy in our group was 60, the oldest 63. At one point I turned to the 63-year old in our group and told him, "Yoshi, you are like a giant boy!" Because he was like an 11-year-old trapped inside a 63-year-old's body (a body that actually seemed stronger and younger than a lot of 22-year-old's.) In fact, all of them are like big giant boys, really. Immature, silly, needing someone to wipe their mouths with a napkin now and then.

    Congratulations on the date! I can't remember the last time when I've ever just gone on a date, but I do remember how nerve-wracking it is. Glad it worked out well.

    Well well. It would appear that me and RM are meant to be! He does martial arts, I already dress the way he likes, and we hang out in the same places. I'm willing to forgo the beard and his questionable diet if he can accept my age. We all have to make compromises.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Always wear an old favorite (not too trendy, something classic) rather than a new dress/outfit. You need to troubleshoot your outfit (ie. if it rides up constantly, if there is tons of static, if it wrinkles easily, etc. etc.) before a date.

    I always wear a t-shirt dress that's kind of clingy, one piece of jewelry, and heels (unless we are walking a ton...in which case some cute oxfords). Simple, not FASHUN, but you made an effort.

    Hair down.
    This is great advice. You want to look like yourself, but the best version of yourself. My first date outfits are:
    Always a dress on a first date, even in winter (tights!) unless you are going hiking or something. But make it a simple dress, form fitting or follows the lines of the body, but not skimpy.
    A bit of make up. Most of the time when a guy says he doesn’t like when a woman wears make up what he means is he doesn’t like it when he can TELL that she is wearing make up.
    Mid height heels. I’m shortish and I wearing heels makes me feel sexy and confidant. But I want to be comfortable as well. Plus really high heels may set off a "high maintenance" alarm. (I’ve worn flats on dates as well, particularly flat riding boots in winter weather)
    Hair definitely down. Pretty much no exceptions.
    No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means.

    Diene, lets have a girl-date because that Civil War argument is one that I would LOVE to hash out over several glasses of wine. Fascinating.

    I had actually seen the Ken burns doc before, but last year I found myself thinking a lot about the Civil War and wondering a) how Lincoln pulled off selling that war (unfortunately, I don't think "saving an indentured race" would really have been enough in that much less enlightened age), and b) how Lincoln managed to get around the Constitutional issues of such a war. So I rewatched the documentary and read Team of Rivals, and I still don't have very good answers to those questions, but I sure learned a hell of a lot more than I knew before.

    Y'ALL. Guy wants to go on a second date, tonight. This time I'm thinking I'll go a little more casual... maybe leggings, boots, and a flowy top? I'm not accustomed to even wanting a second date, let alone going on one, so I have even less of an idea what to wear.

    If you wore this on a second date with me, I'd be getting handsy before the night is over. Do you want him to get handsy?
