My father was a very strict man, and he absolutely would not allow us to date until we turned 18 years old. I followed my father's rules, and I never snuck out and dated without his knowledge. Even when I turned 18, I still wasn't ready to date because I was going off to college. I had my first date when I was 20 years old, and I had just finished college for the year. I was very nervous, and I wasn't sure that it was going to work out for me. The date was set up by my friends as they thought the guy would be great for me.
I met the guy near my dorm room, and he was such a gentleman. He said he was taking me out to a restaurant, so we both dressed in very nice clothes. I wore a dress that went past my knees, and he decided to put on a casual outfit. He opened the doors for me, whether it was the car doors or the restaurant doors. He even took the time to pull out my chair for me at the restaurant. He asked me what I wanted to order, and he told me that money was no object.
Since I'm fiercely independent, I decided that I would order, but I ordered a modest meal. After eating dinner, we both had dessert. We had a great time in the restaurant, and I didn't want the night to end, so we decided we would go to the movies. After watching a comedy and laughing together, he took me home, and he even waited until I unlocked my door before he left. I remember standing next to the door and hugging myself and smiling. I had a really good and memorable first date.
Since the boom of the internet and mobile technology, we can seek dates anywhere, anytime. We have access to thousands of people but this choice can make it harder to find the one.
