If you ask him to an expensive restaurant for dinner, don’t expect him to pay for his half.
So here's the thing: I don't think I've ever been on an official date with another guy before.
Better question: Will your Uber arrive in time to save you from this sexy potential psychopath? Considering he invited you out for drinks and not someplace shady-looking, I’m guessing his face matches his profile.
It's a reasonable concern, but if he’s willing to meet you in public, chances are he is the same 6’3", Italian, "Orphan Black"-loving nerd you conversed with online (in which case, I hate you even more). Like, why the hell would he name himself "N8-inches" if he didn't put that thing to use.
No, but if that’s all you want to do with him, I’m disappointed.
Which is totally why Nate and your butt should get to know each other a lot better ...
Two guys interested in each other romantically can stumble over those initial bumps in the road to romance and even marriage. With so many definitions of what makes a relationship, with open debate on the importance of legalized marriage or whether or not to be monogamous, it can be overwhelming to even think of how to ask someone out on a simple, old-fashioned date. If you aren’t sure of your schedule, of course you have the right to take a day or two to get back to him. You are not living in a Tennessee Williams drama, a southern belle sitting on your porch, sipping tea and welcoming gentlemen callers to woo you into marriage. When once we treated them with indifference, we now threaten them with overindulgence, as it is so easy to endlessly compliment them for doing nothing other than taking a selfie.

To prove it, here are 25 thoughts you'll have racing through your mind going into your own: Well, believe it because it's totally happening. And, it's happening in like half an hour, so get some pants on. That is, unless you can count a Skylar Grey concert and a semi-romantic drive to Arby's (he paid for my fries! Either way, that night played out like a scene out of "Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist." In which case, my first date was better than yours. **crosses fingers so hard**You is kind; you is smart; you is important! And, remember, when in doubt, channel your inner Mindy Lahiri and order another drink. Let's not rule that last part out just yet, but YAY! Seriously, though, if you've been freaking out ever since you accepted that Grindr date with "N8-inches" (#jealousofyou), I totally understand. " to the more important and practical ones like, "Underwear or nah? "Point is, no matter how many hits you've gotten on Manhunt or Jack'd, first dates are intimidating for both guys involved. Meeting for the first time and being confronted with what he really looks like and acts like AND sounds like can be unnecessarily awkward.FYI, simply listening to a texted recording of his voice doesn’t count.
