Date on Thursday, tips/help?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by bassist 4 life, Aug 20, 2007.


  1. Okay, so. I finally told this girl i like how i felt about her and it turned out she felt the same way, so we're going on a date. This is my first date, any helps and tips? I'm really worried about me being nervous and screwing everything up, lol.

    When you first see her, vomit on her shoes. That will ease the tension and the rest of the night will fly by.
     
  3. Don't grab you're hard-on TOO much.
    But, if you do, and she notices, proceed with vomiting on her shoes;)
     
  4. hahaha, we're going to see a movie and then we're having dinner, if that helps.

    Don't think about boobs.

    Seriously, don't think about it as a massive event. Its a date. Relax, be yourself, and all will turn out well.

    And if it doesn't, vomit on her shoes.

    The film will give you some time together without having to talk much, so you should be able to get over your nerves. Then you've just got to navigate dinner successfully!

    If you're nervous, neck a couple of shots at the bar to loosen yourself up. The alcohol will help you fly, but unlike necking pints, shots won't make you need to go to the can every 5 minutes. Be sincere, gentlemanly and be yourself. Just kick back, have fun and have no expectations of where the date will go, just let it roll.
     
  7. Be yourself and relax, any expectations/concerns you are thinking about the date, forget about them. They will do you no good. Remember she is going out with you because she likes you the way you are. Be confident and funny...

    And if that doesn't work do the vomit thing suggested above...except when she goes to clean off her shoes, whip it out! :D

    I wish I could tell you but I don't know what is and what isn't considered appropriate in Bahrain.

    Spend all night quoting Top Gun, and request a fly-by from her. If she responds "negative, Ghostrider, the pattern is full", perform a fly-by.

    If it looks like you're going to get a kiss in the final embrace of the night, say "Too close for missiles, switching to guns" and go for it.

    I just watched it on Friday. For some reason my girlfriend has it on dvd, and I was like "yep, love this film". Everyone should watch it.

    TS, ditch the cinema, rent Top Gun on dvd and watch that with her.

    You know, I expected an Englishman to suggest quoting Monty Python. There goes that stereotype :bag:

    Sorry to disappoint, but I would expect Monty Python and the Holy Grail to be banned in Bahrain.

    I'd expect Top Gun to be banned in most places in the middle east.

    On account of being too good, maybe! They'll all get jealous when they see the US Navy's amazing technology, as their air forces are made up of recovered plains that crashed in WWI and II.

    Buy a compression shirt and some compression shorts the day of the date, and wear them under your clothes on the night. You'll feel amazing. Similarly, a black compression shirt will highlight the finer points of your physique for her delicate eyes. Of course, avoid this if you're a fatty!

    And don't forget the TOP GUN!
     
  18. Haha, thanks guys,I'll let you all know how it goes and i'll post pics.

    Oh and about Top Gun, hah it still airs here, i dont think i've ever seen monty python on tv here though.

    If you're prone to stress related flatulence, and as a bass player you probably are, eat some Gas-X before the date.
