    The Dating thread.

    With all of these dating threads happening around here, I decided to make 'the dating/relationships/sociology thread.'

    Okay then, I'll start.

    I was at a restaurant on Saturday with a friend of mine and the waitress was really hot. I was flirting w/ her the whole time and giving her a hard time because she didn't wear a name tag. She was really cute and seemed to respond well to the flirting, so at the end of the dinner I asked her if she wanted to go hang out next weekend. She said sure and I got her number. Now, I keep going over the conversation in my head and realizing some of the stupid idiotic things I said. I'm also realizing that I know her name, but she probably doesn't know mine . That shouldn't be a problem though, I'll just say my name when I call her (after I wait my mandatory 5 days).

    So, there is my story. I don't ask girls out much so I was pretty pumped when I just randomly did it and she said yes. Now, I just need a good first date place....Any recommendations? I don't want to go for the dinner/movie thing. Seems to boring.

    Good job, man!

    Question: when you say flirting, do you mean that you were making subtle references to how interested you were in her, or just trying to be witty and get her to laugh?

    I'm having trouble with that.

    Try something quirky, like Putt-Putt golf or something. It's a hoot, and no one is expected to be any good.

    Whatever you do, DON'T do dinner date or movies. Seriously.

    Try bowling; it's fun! Mini golf is a good idea; I think I'll try that next time! Do you have cheap rafting around? I know that in NYC, we have free rafting on the weekends, but it's closing up shop soon for the fall/winter. Free concerts in the park are good, or check your newspaper for events. I just discovered this; the Weekends section is INVALUABLE.

    That one. We had gone into this restaurant before this Saturday and she was our waitress. That was when I first saw her. She was really cool and I asked her what her name was and I told her I wouldn't have to ask if she were wearing a nametag. She laughed, and that was pretty much it. So, on Saturday I went in and she was our waitress again. She remembered me and I said hey Sarah "too cool for a nametag" and that made her laugh. So, I figured it was going well and just asked her out.

    Good info on the first date places guys, keep the recommendations coming!

    Okay, cool. That's what I try to do, and it seems to get me first dates just fine, but nothing else afterwards...

    For instance (I'm not sure if I wrote about this here, I don't think I did), I met this woman a few weeks ago through a friend of mine. When we first met at the bar my friend's band was playing at, I didn't pay much attention to her, as she didn't seem to be the social kind. I talked to the drummer for a while, got a free CD, and THEN started talking to her (and her cousin). My friends (purposely) isolated me with the two of them, and while I was a bit nervous at first, I landed up having a great time. The subject woman and I connected REALLY well, and we talked for a long time. We agreed to meet up later on.

    Our second meet was more or less like the first. We were supposed to check out a museum, but she wanted to eat, so we did. Again, we connected really well, and talked about random stuff for a few hours. I thought things would end okay (I wanted to go a lot slower with the women I've been meeting recently)...but then I never hear from her again. I've tried calling her and texting her, to no avail. I've wanted to email her, but I doubt she'd respond to that. I want to keep touch with her, since she was really cool and I thought we had a good connection, but I have no idea of what happened.

    The only thing that I can think of was that we talked about "dating" and how people perceive it/work with it, and I mentioned that there are people that follow "rules" to better their chances. This was early into the dinner, and we hung out for much longer than that...

    At the same time, I was talking to her cousin through Facebook. I didn't mean anything by it, but we were bantering quite a lot. We talked quite a bit through there, and it seemed that she liked talking to me...We agreed to meet up later, but couldn't because she had errands to run and was going back to college that same week. I got her number and gave her a call about a week later. NOTHING from her either....I left a Facebook message, and haven't heard from her either...

    Really weird.

    Keep asking questions about her. The most interesting people are the ones that want to know about you. Don't talk about yourself. She will ask when she wants to know.

    Good advice. As long as you ask the right questions, she will talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk....

    For anybody:

    When I call her, what should I say? I'm new to this whole thing and just want to make sure I play it out right. Also, if I get the answering machine should I leave a message? Damn, I hate dating.

    I do that, and the woman indeed talks about her...but only some bother to ask questions about me, which I thought was an indicator of interest...

    I try not to make it sound like an interview process, because lots of guys do that, and I'm sure girls don't like that kind of talk anyway. If I feel that it's getting to that, then there is a disconnect somewhere.

    Be witty about your first call. Normally, I say something to try and get her to laugh and know that it's me. If you can, use something that you talked about before (provided that it was interesting), and follow up from there.

Or maybe I have more options than I can make up my mind on.
