The second datePage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
The second date was today and it was even better than the first we spent 9 hrs together and dang did it fly by. We went bowling played putt putt. Checked out the new barnes and nobles that just opened and had mexican for dinner. We really do click so I hoe this one does stick around fro awhile. I had a great time today. I guess internet dating can work sometimes.

Whoa.. "it finally happened" was posted on 8/7 (the great connection) and it took an entire week to get to the second date?

You say that like it's a bad thing. Quite the opposite, it sounds like a nice, calm, relaxed pace the OP has going there.

I did the after work drinks thing with somebody 10 days ago, and we're having our first real date tomorrow. A good 10 days after our first mtg. We've both been very busy, and really what is the rush? That's the problem with online dating, everyone just starts demanding instant gratification. I don't consider that a good thing at all. The OP's experience ought to be a lesson on how to do it right, you're implying the opposite?

Anyhow, good luck OP!

Just be prepared in case it doesn't work out. Next you will be saying the 3rd date, then the 4th was better than the last and then you'll find out she has a fiancee or something out of the ordinary or she will stop taking your calls.

I've had some amazing dates that progressed and then it all went to hell.

So I will be happy for you if you are still happy a few months from now, but just always keep in mind to have fun and don't get too serious for quite a while. When you start getting too involved you stop seeing warning signs. Even if there aren't any, heartbreak stinks.

Good luck to you, seriously. I haven't had a wonderful date in over a year.

Hey, whatever does it for you.

That's the problem with online dating

Forget online dating... irl if I am really into somebody, I don't want to wait a week to ten days to see them again. Call it a character flaw....

Well trust me, I'm REALLY into the one I'm seeing. But I'm trying not to get too excited. Someone else just mentioned one good reason to pace it, just in case it doesn't work out.

But this is just the EARLY stages, if we're going that long between dates after the first couple then yeah I agree with you, something isn't right.

It was mutual (the time frame) I work full time and am finishing up school. She works full time too and does freelance photography like weddings and the such. The next time we will be seeing each other is tuesday or Wed she is spending the night with me. Were going swimming.

Im excited to see where this goes, but I have been dating too long to not trust my instincts if I think something is wrong.

Yay! I'm glad things are working out for you two. I hope that special "chemistry" or "spark" builds stronger and stronger as you continue getting to know one another! Thank you for the update, OP! It's so refreshing to hear good news on this "Dating Experience" forum! Made my forum time a bit brighter.

I think I would be freaked out if I had a date and signed on-line to read someone telling the world about our day. I just find that weird. Does she mind you giving a public commentary of the date? That would make me think if it were a bad date you might blast her on the message boards.

That's awesome! I'm so happy to see when someone has success here. I did as well, so I know it's not a fluke.

One thing I've learned is that everyone on these boards has an opinion on how things should proceed. My bf and I broke pretty much all of the pof "rules" and we're doing just great. Just do things at the pace you feel comfortable with, and do what feels right to you. Sounds like you're doing that already, and it's working!
