1. Hahaha quite some experience that one :) . BTW, the nerd card always works. ALWAYS.

    My first date was at 17. He was my senior and quite a popular hunk and I was obviously thrilled when he asked me out. We went out for coffee and he dropped me home. That is when I realized that he hardly conversed in English. He spoke Hindi and I do too pretty fluently. The second date happened the next day and I knew that would be my last date the minute he spoke the first sentence in English, “Myself do not likes talking in yenglish”. Yeah, that’s what he said! ๐Ÿ˜

    And just like you, I played the nerd card and got out. 12th exams and all that jazz. The moron believed it! Just like how I expected! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Honey, I’m 45 and still haven’t figured out how to gracefully let someone down. It’s HORRIBLE. I think you did well. When I was young I would just ignore their calls till they went away!!!!!!

    • Haha…it’s so hard isn’t it. I think the go-to line now is “I’m not ready for a relationship” or “I just want to stay friends”. Have used it and had it used on me…

  3. My first date was at 23, I think! And i dated him for quite some time.. Eventually things faded and we went our ways.. I never had to turn any one down, realizing that he isn’t the right guy/girl! ๐Ÿ˜› I dated all of them for a long time..and some even went on to become relationships! :) <3 that's me..that's how I dated! ๐Ÿ˜›

    But you did, quite an intelligent thing there! good riddance ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Oh it’s so awkward trying to be the one breaking up. Had to do it three times so far and it sucks. Mind you, being told that they are not ready or something along those lines is no picnic either! ๐Ÿ˜

Love ur date walla story holding hands n all..must be fun..me too dated quite late in life coz no girl ever found me sexy!! What to do? Not every1 are lucky. Love the post.

    • Aww…well, I’ve been on the receiving end where guys are not ready for a relationship or just the usual it’s not you, it’s me thing. Not the nerd card though. ๐Ÿ˜›

      Ah well, I reckon all our dates make good stories…some day we might find someone compatible. If not, I’m sure we are still pretty damn comfortable in our own skin! :)

  5. loved reading through your experience. i think my first date was with K, when I was about 23, i think. we went out for movies, then came home, spent sometime watching tv, talking about books, etc. fun! maybe i should write in detail about it before i forget :)

  6. Nice post….I have fallen into such situations too when i was quite young!…where a casual meet ends up to a serious date and you get caught up with the very wrong person you can imagine of….its quite a pathetic thingie :)…Glad you came out of it without stretching it out. Like the nerd card thing…works awesome..doesnt it!! :)

  7. Dating and breaking up – quite an experience, isnt it? Loved your honest take on it though. But yes, letting someone down nice and easy is a quite an arduous task !

  8. Like you I never knew I had a first date too – the most gorgeous guy in the world bought me a ticked to the school dance! I was only 13 – no wonder I knew nothing about dating and eventually I was too shy and completely daft to take it further. Darn. btw the nerd card is a great card to play.

  10. HAHAH My first date was in the age of 19 with a creep. Just like you, I had never dated before and needed friends in an unknown city. Ended real bad (consisting of a few threats by him).
    After that I have never dated. Made a friend, who became a best friend and then someone I loved. Never dated. Hah.
    This was a cute post!!!
