Not-So-Desperate And Dateless

I know why I'm dateless...cos I'm not so desperate. LOL ok I don't mean that those who date often are desperate *BOINK! a rotten Tomato hits Keshi's head*. Peace! Just that I was thinking about it the other day, cos I see girls around me Dating at the drop of a hat, whereas I'm that same single girl, who wouldn't move her ass off the couch even if Gerard Butler was in front of her down on his knees with pink roses asking her out *Love Story music plays at the back*. Yes, I'm difficult. Let's just say I'm not so crazy about Dating, unless I get both emotionally and intellectually stimulated by the guy, which btw is quite rare. Why is that? Cos guys like that are rare. LOL! Cmon, isnt that true? I mean you can't Date or possibly think of Dating every guy that's interested in you! There have been alot of romantic proposals that I have rejected big time, only cos I sensed nothing 'real' happening from taking it any further. You may tell me that you've got to try before you know what can happen. But after my Ex and I broke up, I have sort of stopped 'scanning' for love. Not that I have been affected by that last relationship, but I just want Love to happen when it's ready for me...to come to me on it's own. I don't wanna search for it...cos the best things in life come to you when you stop looking for them *talk about stopping the Search, it seems it has halted til the year 2055!*.


Coming back to the Dating part...the only Date I went on after THE Breakup was with Mr.Darcy in Jan 2007. Some of you already know that very short Love story (read Mr.Darcy Meets Keshi, The Happiness Of The Pursuit, and A Cinderella Story from my 2007 archives, if you want to know). The reason I even decided to go out with Mr.Darcy after he asked me out was cos he really did sound like a GREAT guy...and he did stimulate me both emotionally and intellectually on the first day wet met. He was crazy about me...he didn't even know who I was but he soon started talking to me and was making plans straight away. Everything he said just clicked, and trust me that's a rare happening in my life. He was great company, a good conversationalist, a decent guy with a great sense of humor and a high thinker. Though I don't like rushing things, especially relationships, I kind of liked his honesty and quick thinking. He asked me out the next day itself, he was making wedding plans on the 2nd day *rolling eyes* and we broke up in just 7 days, and he told me very hurtful things and ended it, and all from TXT messages (wasn't man enough to meet me and say it all). LOL there you go! Such are my Dates and that's why I'm hesitant to go out with a guy just like that. NO THANK YOU! What seemed like Gold at first sight, was only Dust after 7 days. No I'm not trashing him, but what I'm saying is that what you see is not what you always get. Having said that, does that mean someone who does NOT emotionally and intellectually stimulate you at first could be Gold later on? :) Maybe...maybe not. I don't know the answer to that. All I know is right now I'm quite comfy being not-so-desperate and dateless, woohoo! ;-)


So, to spice up this post, I wanna add a list of things that a guy should never (I mean NEVER) do on a first Date. You can add to this list in the comment section. Guys can write about what a girl should never do on a first Date, and girls can write about what a guy should never do on a first Date. Ok so here's my list of DON'Ts:


*Dress torn/smelly clothes
Please note that you're on a Date, not a Charity assessment. So guys please look good and smell nice!

*Ignoring your breath
Don't go there and prove to your Date that you're the number one Halitosis case in your country that needs emergency treatment! Please do brush your teeth and freshen up your breath even if it takes 10 Listerine bottles to bomb your breath - before you leave home, not in front of her!

*Pick your nose/teeth/ears
If you ever do any of the above when you're on a Date with a girl like me, I'd just get up and walk away...on the way, I'd report you to the Police for Mental harassment using disgusting techniques.

*Talk about your Ex
Please don't ever do this! Mr.Darcy kept on talking about his last Fatal-Attraction kinda GF it made me so dizzy it felt like I was gonna go into a coma!

* Play with your cutlery/food
If you're on a Restaurant date, please don't play with your cutlery/food as if you're a 5yr old kid...and also don't use cutlery to make expressions while yakking, especially a knife cos this may look like you're Ted Bundy's re-incarnation!

*Touch your Crotch area
YUKK! If you ever do this in front of a girl like me, your Crotch will no longer exist.

*Keep looking at the watch/clock
Don't do this at all, cos it gives us women the impression that you have another Date to catch after this one.

*Talk with your face on her face
Please keep a decent physical distance when you're on your first few dates...after all this is not your Honeymoon!

*Keep texting/talking on your mobile phone
It's rude to chat on your mobile all the time when you're on a Date...it gives the impression that the Date isn't so important to you and that your work/mates/family is your real Date!

*Talk about your life only
Don't go on blabbering about your interests only, as if this is a 'This Is Your Life' presentation for you. Do ask about her life and interests too.

*Ask too many questions
Do not keep asking loads of questions from the girl as if this is a Job Interview...do not make her sick from asking stupid questions such as 'how many babies do you want?'!

*Shake your legs like a manic motor!
I dislike guys who continuously rock their legs as if they are in a fit. Probably cancel the date and get some medical help?

*Say 'I Love You'
Please guys, a Date doesnt mean LOVE. Get over it! And save some lines to say when you really are in love (if that ever happens that is).

*Try to kiss the girl
I don't know about other girls, but I don't wanna get physical on the first few Dates. It'll take a very long time for a guy to get me to lock lips with him...so dragging me into bed will take, mmmm, like 7 lifetimes? Yeah dream on!

*Try to mate on a Date
For godssakes a first Date is not about Sleeping! *reminds me of wild Baboons' Mating season*. So don't even think about it without expecting to be beaten black and blue in public. *start getting used to Manolo Blahnik shoe marks on your face*

*Pay only for your meal/coffee
It's good to go 50/50 on a first Date, but it's always nice to offer to pay. Some guys may take you to McDonalds or Reject Shop Cafe - Girls BEWARE of such 'McMaggots'!

*Call immediately after the Date
I dunno about other chicks, but I don't like guys who are pests/stalkers. Give it some time. After all Love and relationships are not supposed to show quick results like instant Maggie noodles!


Now add your points. Thanks guys!

Where do I begin...to tell the story of how 'great' a love can be...

add to the list:
Hi, my face is up here moment..
dont talk to my lovely-you-know-whats..seriously, my eyes are up here....

loveeee the list you made! you're my chica :D...my type!

Cinder-Single said...

Keshi! I share so many of your points you raised. There is no reason in hell you should lean in to kiss a girl on the first date.(that is a big NO NO)

Please if the only place you can take me is McDonalds.... keep it moving, I am not kid and I so do not want a happy meal! If we are meeting for coffee, I prefer Starbucks!!!!

LOVE YOU is sooooooo off limits on the first date, and alot of the dates after that!! Matter of Fact if I just ended a relationship that I was INLOVE! I would think of that word as a Curse word....

If I wanted to date your ex, that is what I would have done! DO NOT talk about her unless I ask you later on down the line what happened!! (prolly I will not)

Keshi, If he asked me out! hell yeah he is going to pay for the first date! after that we will talk about going dutch!! I want to get to know you, but I don't want to spend the first date talking about when you were born up until the present.. I WILL walk out!

I did not put love away on the shelf for I have learned to love again after my EX showed his azz while I was on vacation! (Got me a Mr. Big now)

I will however let the man know I don't have sex until after marriage! I WILL not be your mama, Nor will you use me to replace your friends... and ummm last but not least I am dating you not the couch and the freaking remote!!!

If you have found someone else.. MAN UP and tell me!! or I will have to let you know in a NOT so nice way How physical I am on your car!! hahahahaha!

Keshi, You have so many qualities a man would kill to have in a woman, plus you are HOT!!! I mean really HOT!! you will get your MR BIG!!!! Until then! Keep your game fresh and don't settle!!

Luv Ya!!

HI Keshi

You’re having manic Monday and I’m just trying to get out of Sunday.

It will soon be midnight, and I’m not sure if I’ll turn into a pumpkin or a werewolf.

I think if you were to search all your archives you would very likely have enough material for a movie franchise.

Can’t you tell my brain is fried? LOL

Mr. Darcy was not a good match for you. To have a good relationship, both people must know who they are and where they want to go in life. If a person is not secure in his/her own life, they won’t be secure in a relationship. Now I’m a marriage councilor. LOL

Your list is right on the mark.

Have you ever had a guy ask you dance and then ask you to marry him? I didn’t even know the creep. He wasn’t drunk or stoned. He meant it. You can add this one to your list. LOL

Bev

Cinder-Single said...

Okay I read my post!! I think I typed a blog on your blog! I am sowwy!! hahaha! I had a lot to get down after reading this post... and ummm I have a lot more but I digress!! *sigh*

Luv ya!

Iceman said...

utopia said...

hahah!
yeah i'd hate the idea of kissing on the first date and landing up in bed is a strict no no.

SMM said...

Hee hee...reminded me of my college days. I couldn't find a single guy who turned me on - intellectually and physically. And I refuse to dumb down for a guy. I have brains and I like using it as well. Btw add this also to your list:

1) Don't name drop ( a common affliction in Indian men) and tell me how many politicians/ partners/ senior advocates you know. Tell me what you know.

2) Don't tell me how much money your Daddy has or what a big car he bought you. Tell me what you as an individual have done, and not what Daddy gifted you on a 24 karat gold plated platter.

SMM said...

And also don't get drunk and show off how fast you can drive :P

Jay said...

Oh sure! Now that I'm 40 somebody finally tells me there are rules to this dating thing. ;-)

Never take a girl to a place where there is live music on the first date. You don't get to talk and she might hate the band.

Don't get drunk on the first date either. That's bad form.

Invincible said...

You know guys do get nervous or sometimes too excited if they find it all working, or there are some inevitable moments of silence, so playing with cutlery a little should be permissible.
It's fine to expect a perfect date, but small things do go wrong like not able to decide from the menu or a spill.
As long as you cover the obviously obnoxious things (and a nice list) and you show confidence and you feel comfortable with each other, the scale should be a little lenient against other points.

Invincible said...

BTW, i read ur blog thru the feed-reader. I can't otherwise read it in office (shhhh !!) and i can't drop comments.

Casperbaba said...

hey keshi,

the dating blues??? :)
well i understand.. but somehow dun relate so i guess it wud b a lil inappropriate for me to comment on the do's nd dont's of the business.

but on the other hand. i really respect you for holding your horses. Love wud happen to you. I pray for you. I also know of gurls who date left right and center. wat i fail to understand is are they lookin for love or a good lay? neways the kinda guy u have xplained do xist but they are as rare if not "rarere" than chicks with brains. Hence forth its always advised to practice abstinance.

hugs!

humbl devil said...

marriage plans on the second day!!!
that must have freaked you out!!!
:D

never been on a date but i knew all these things already...
probably wont be going on a date ever...hehehe

Nadine said...

Great list. I don't know if I could add anything to it. I think waiting for the right guy is always worth it. Why waste time on the lemons.

Hemanth Potluri said...

dont worry buddy i am with u...no dates for me till now..so life's happy at present ....lol...but got to have a partner who loves u more then u do urself ....still on the hunt....


urs..hemu

Preeti said...

Hahahaha! There r sooo many guys out there who really think that saying yes for a date = making out...And even worse if he has a car (yes, iv been in such a situation) It just SOOOOO irritates me! Like totally...

Ur list out there was perfect..Evertyhing that i could ask for...I hate it when men just talk about their work and only their work! I also hate it when they r the intellectual geeky types and think of women as bimbos and when i try sayin somethin serious, laughs it away as bein silly...Like, hello, iv got brains too u knw!!!

irshad said...

Hi Keshi,

First and foremost I am extremely happy that you’ve liked my earlier comment. I was talking from my heart and didn’t just type a comment for the sake of it. (I never do that and what I say I mean it)

Even I wish to migrate and want to make sure that my mom comes with me. Australia is one of the intended destinations. I like Singapore as well. I am happy that you’re a person who practices what you preach (by bringing ur mom to Australia).

I do not feel sad or pity for you, since you are dateless. Infact I am happy for you. In most instances you’ve find ur fiancés through dating. So the person whom you go out with affects your life as well as people who are dear to you. Most youth forget that. I’ll give you an example. Imagine you getting married to a serial killer (who is not yet captured by ur police- I know that’s an extreme example). Once police looks for him ur sis, parents, friends and close relatives will be questioned by the police. If your sis in the uni still, imagine what she’ll be going through and ur friends, what they’ll be going through. Just becoz they are friends of ur and you’ve made a bad choice if affects others lives. It’s like “Chaos theory or butterfly effect”. Why should other pay a price for what they’ve not done?

I know that some girls (let’s refer to them as easy girls) go out with each and every man who asks her out. I consider them to be worse than sluts. Sluts do what ever they for money. The easy girls do not do it for money, but in fact they themselves spend money. (Getting ready for the date, clothes, hairdo, and makeover) I couldn’t not find a nastier word.

P.S – btw, did you show my earlier comment to your cousins and if so what was their reaction. If you don’t mind, I am eager to know

Pinku said...

hey!

the list is cool....I was hoping to also read some comments from the guys on the 'don't list' for girls on ur comments page but guess they chickened out...hehehe!!!

btw...all I want to add to ur great list is 'overtly checking out other women while out on a date with one'.

fingers said...

Unless you've been dating ex-convicts recently released after lengthy prison stays, I'd have thought most of those tips were self-evident...

La vida Loca said...

dent ask about my dating history, my age, salary, if I have kids.

Do share about ur hobbies, ask about mine

Keshi said...

tnxx guys! Will reply to each one of ya soon.


I just wanted to say this to the GUYS here.

Don't be scared to tell us abt wut u expect from a girl on a first date with ya. Cmon spill it! Why hide behind humor? :)


So far, only the girls hv added tips here. Boys said nothing. Does that mean Men r ok with any kind of woman????


Keshi.

dharmabum said...

woah woah! u're a tough date, keshi - i am gonna be nervous now :P

Sun Follower said...

Yes- I agree - we need to hear the male perspective here. But so far - all contributions have been excellent!

Tarun said...

Ok I am here.
this post was a weird and there is a sense of deja vu.
I think there could be serious repercussion but I think I will rie the wave.
So spilling the beans out here.
Prologue:
I assume the "date" for the guy is a known gal and its not a reality tv show or some internet blind date, thats more blinding then dating.
So if some curious gal other then Keshi is reading this make a few notes.

1.For heavens sake show up on time coz if u are late then 15 min, guy might start brooding.

2.Stop giving funda over why you got late.

3.Dress smart.A "conservative" sense of dressing is a personal welcome.

4.Dont get a friend along,girls are likely to end up bitching.

5.Dont wear excessive make up thats make masscara end up like a double coat of paint.

6.Dont forget to read the morning newspaper's sports column.Or try watching a few bits of the latest in sport. :)

7.Dont be fidgetty over the earring/necklace, heel.

8.For once keep a menu on a mind, if he asks "what would you like to eat".Anything is stale fod now.

9.Stop bitching about the gal in the office.

10.For once take a guy for what he is rather that what your dream man is.

I dont know if there could be a few editions to this, but please be on time.Its not always about the look and the dress that you are wearing/suppose to wear,more often then not its about charm,allurement,easy to be with demeanor.

Urv said...

Ha ha. Very hilarious list u got there..

Tarun said...

Sorry BJ, for once my comment wasn't for the post.

Donn said...

A gal on the first date should NEVER EVER..
>bring her parole officer, Mom
or Big Brother
>talk about how awful her last BF was..because chances are that he is one of your best friends or your cousin
>tell you about her exorcism
>act like she's all dat and a bag of chips!
>fill out a temporary restraining order during the meal
>relay a message from God
>thank the bartender for the multiple orgasms the night before
>bring her BFF unless she is into threesomes
>talk shop or shopping
>plant her barely tethered knockers on the table and tell him that she just got two new puppies

these seem to be common sense but what do I know? I haven't been on a first date since the Beatles broke up!

Tarun said...

I fully support Donn.
His comment was like hammer on the nail's head.

the stygian sailor said...

i ask some one out and i forget i did :)happens
remedy : i don't ask anyone out. :)

Friendly Stranger said...

hahaha
GreaT PoSt!
feels like love-guru lesson! :D

Whitesnake said...

Keshi you have so many people who love ya.

Ya want to write a list of does and don'ts? then forget about finding love. I am not sure it is love you are looking for because love embraces so much more that jumping ya bones or romantic dinners or soft touches....

It's about having complete faith and trust in someone, being able to give and take. Having both a physical and spiritual connection.

(I ain't talking religion with the spiritual thing.)

tell ya what, if i ever get up ta where ya are i'll take ya out. not to some fancy pants restraunt but somewhere nice where ya can drink ya lattes and i can drink my beer and we can talk laugh and cry. then when the evening ends and we head our separate ways. I'll give ya forehead a kiss, tell ya to take care.......

you will walk away feeling loved.

and content with who you are and where you are heading. you will also walk away feeling "OMG I jsut been out with a Whitesnake!"

Cos Whitesnakes do it so much better,,,,,,,,, unfortunately only for some people......

Like Gautami said, when ya stop searching it will find you.....

Bloody hell did I just ask ya out?

Breathe boy Breathe is was a slip of the tongue!

Whitesnake said...

Oh and dress in what ya comfortable with cos i will. If ya breath is like a badgers bum I wont notice.
Most importantly......be ya self.
Dont pretend ta be something ya not.

Sometimes ya win sometimes ya lose and it hurts when ya lose BUT... at least there was no hidden agenda.........

Here endth the lesson......
NOW about that latte and that beer.......i suggest ........

SaTaN said...

Thx keshi,

I hve updated couple of points in my DON'T list during date :D

N my list of DON'Ts for girls will come soon when I get free from work...

rantravereflect/ jane said...

ishqia said...

Shionge said...

Whoa! That would be so rude to pick nose on first date ya :(

You covered most of the yucky behaviours Keshi.

mayz said...

ritee!!!!!!!! no wonder...hehe

general_boy said...

Shake your legs like a manic motor!

well... that's me out! ROFL

Alright how about just one leg? Or one knee... would that be OK? What about just a foot?

deepsat said...

dont order anything too gassy to eat! its weird to have the date fart out!!! LOL!!!

humbl devil said...

well, i like gals with minimal make-up and sans lip-stick, but lip gloss, mascara and kohl will definitely earn them browny points...
all the guys would agree on the latter, i think...

and they should talk and not just exhibit listening skills...:D

Ria said...

u so right gurl!i hav always been like tht.....i never believe in 'wham bam thank u maam' kinda dating!Its jus too frivolous a thing for me. And there's nothing wrong in doin tht. And some things r seriously best left to time, it will happen when it has to! Now coming to the things a guy shud never do on the first date; I think one thing tht really puts me off is when the guy jus goes on ans on bragging abt himself, his life and stuff like tht! Also some guys get so curious to knw abt u tht they start askin personal questions on the 1st date....which makes anybody uncomfortable and this turns out to b one big date blunder! Also try and talk abt common topics...u cant b yapping away to glory where as the gurl is almost goin to sleep any moment! :D

Cinderella. said...

Hahaha..this was damn funny babe !!

GUys, On a first date,

PLz dont look a her you-know-where, even if they are begging you to look at them. Lets see how much a man you are..lol !!!

Donot tell her, "you look sexy" ! :O "You look beautiful" or "you look pretty" will work out just as fine.

Be chivalrous ! It aint that hard, but yeah, hard enough to keep it separate form chauvinism. SO be careful.

That'll be all girl. You covered up the rest so fantastically !!!

Cinderella. said...

Rofl @ Mansi's comment....bahahahahaha....

Man are so damn banal man !!!

*~*{Sameera}*~* said...

*Does that mean someone who does NOT emotionally and intellectually stimulate you at first could be Gold later on? :)*

Sweetheart,how would you know if you do not take the chance?There is a saying in Hindi which means "If you do not stand up you would know how it is to fall".Of course I know you have fallen more than once in this game called love but you need to give people a chance!So next time when a decent-enough guy asks you out,maybe you could say "Yes"? :)

As for one thing I feel a guy should NOT do on a first date :

SMOKING!!!I just can't stand it!

Have a great week ahead Babes!Love ya.Hugsssssssssssssssss :)

d SINNER!!! said...

love ur sense of humor gal and the list serves so well...

and u're right when u said men havin both brains, looks and height(thats my add) are rare...:P

g-man said...

ok, honestly, i've never quite figured out the point of dating someone. i've never been on a date before, and even when i was in a relationship, we were really really good friends before we even thought of getting together. now that that ended with a bang, i still stick with my point of view. i think its better to get to know someone really well, and take things from there if you're both up to it. ok, i just read what i wrote and i managed to convey something totally different from what i intended, but i think you get what i mean...

being a guy =D i'll reply from the guy point of view, to your list of things

i don't really pay much attention to what i wear, all i do is make sure that the colours don't clash :)

mostly, when i go out to a chinese place or somethin, i order the thingy on the menu that is the most difficult to pronounce. more often than not, i am left wondering how the bloody hell to eat it!

ppl pick their noses and grab their crotch on a date? ew! that's just plain gross!!!

but i think guys find it difficult to get emotionally involved with anything, even a pet rock. at least i do

long boring comment. i'd like to sum it up by sayin this: most guys suck! you're spot on in doing what you are right now :)

Liberal said...

Funny stuff...while I've never committed any of those follies...I do shudder to think what would happen if a guy wrote down a list of demands like this, or (horror of horrors!) spiced it up with some humor...one must wonder if the whole dating etiquette these days is rigged to the girl's favor (just an observation; it's still workin fine for me!)

Sach said...

hey! I cudn't agree more with bad dress and bad breath thing..
And about the idea of picking...yuck yuck!!! I wonder if someone would be stupid enough to do that..
Playing with your cutlery..I guess bad table manners!
For the watch thing..If someone around me looks at the watch or tries to show himself busy with his cell, I prefer moving away..
But I won't mind listening to someone about his but I do have a problem answerin' questions :)
And yeah! sayin' 'I Love You'or getting mushy mushy with kisses is a big NO.
And for the bill thing, I want him pay..

Asha said...

Good for you Keshi, glad to read that you are not desperate! No need to be!:)
Marvelling at the list of don'ts! Glad I didn't have to deal with all those.Got one and kept him all these years!:D
Have a great Monday.

Clyde said...

Ok Keshi girl
You need to know---
1. Dating is not love or a preparation for marriage---its a guy and a girl going out together and having fun.
2. If you sit at home and dont date, they are not coming knocking on your door.
3. You may well be of Sri Lankan heritage but unless one of your relatives or friends arranges a marriage to a stranger, you are going to be sitting home for a long time.
4. You are Australian----get out there---do what you want---be what you want----be happy

Nachi said...

point taken Keshi. will remember for future reference! (now i know what expectations i have to live up to once all the stalking finally pays off)...

:)

and oh! girls, just cause the guy knows what you are saying when you talk about your world of fashion accessories et al, does not mean that he needs to be told about your entire wardrobe (a mild way of saying, don't give out too much information dear gorgeous women! we men like to explore and find out new things in progression. don't whack us on day one itself!) apart from this little personal suggestion, you pretty much manage to have us head over heels no matter what you do.

...interesting post Keshi girl. a funny coincidence, today itself i was trying hard to explain to one of my teachers, why is it that i have attained singlehood bodhisattva!

PS: Keshi, don't make me cry! please... ;)

damn! i hve never been on a date...a real one.

after reading tht, i think i wud too stressed out to make any sort of impression....whn mads and i went out we already knew each other very well...so torn jean, early morning breath , playing with cutleries , in ur face talk ...has all been done....poor girl.

i did sing with the band for her when i proposed to her...so i think iam redeemed.

KP! said...

hahahha....
I so agree and from our previous discussion about "'McMaggots'!" in solitaires blog....:). Thats cheapness of the them to take their date to McDees....lolz.

valid points..next time before u go on date....plz give us his email Id ...we`ll send him all the list to make sure...u have perfect date.....:)

Arv said...

I dont like to call meeting some girl as a date, just dont know why.

And when am with a girl, am best at my natural self :)

but now, I have to hit the bed for I feel like a zombie... LOL...

take care mate.. Cheers...

Nash: I find you very attractive. Your aggressive moves toward me indicate that you feel the same way. But still, ritual requires that we go through a number of platonic activities before we
[brief pause]
Nash: have sex. I'm simply proceeding with those activities. But in point of actual fact, all I really want to do is have intercourse with you as soon as possible. You're gonna slap me now.

she married him...btw

u never know what life brings up...or what ure going to fall for..thats called serendipity :)

comfortably numb said...

nicely dun...not for nothing its said tht a dash of humour is d best way to put a point across.
looking for love part:- strict no-no.sound cliched but "love does find u" n if it doesnt,means u r bttr off widout it.
thngs not to do on a 1st date:-
#dont n i mean dont giggle evey 3 secs.
#dress decent, no flashy dressing plz.

ToOothlEss WOndeR! said...

Ah, now I know why the girls dont call after the first date.
*touch the crotch area: I thought that was allowed - I mean every man should have the liberty to at least scratch his own balls!
Loved it!

Princess Mia said...

hello there mate....howdy do? long time, sorry sorry i havent been able to come here in teh last coupld of days, missed ya big time but will be catching up for all the reading..

So the list is perfect n i could so relate to the no-so-desperate and dateless girl....cos am so much like this too....heheh

btw guys shud never rock up on a date with a 3-4day stuble....looks ugly....eeeeew, n dome dudes (doesn happen in OZ but in India) guys just wear on their dirty jeans which they havent washed for like 3 months n one can see teh brown marks....thats just gross....

Anu said...

ok considering i have never been on a date, this is purely from observation - "Dont check out other girls when you are on a date" . I used to walk with a bunch of gals into a coffee shop in India , only to find,Mr.Gentleman trying to make eye contact with each one of us, when his date was trying to navigate through the nauseous sandwich he had ordered.

ranjana said...

first of all must say its a very nice post.
i agree with you....dating or being in a relationship is just a matter of availability these days.
n marriage proposal on second day ....omg...was mr. darcy traveeling at the the speed of light ?
thirdly...a very good comprehensive list of things a guy shouldn't do on the first date.

tsduff said...

Tee hee - Keshi, I haven't been on a first date in so long I can't remember what it is like! I think what comes most strongly to mind is that the boy should behave as a gentleman, and not try to grope the girl. Of course I'm speaking of my first date with my Sweetheart. Our "first date" at ages 14 and 15 respectively was on the back of my horse, with him riding behind me. He didn't try any of the moves so common with boys of that age, and hence made such a good lasting impression on me that here we are together again after all these years. Fun list my dear.

Whitenoise said...

I just wanted to make the point that people change... sometime for the worse, sometimes for the better. If someone puts you off in your early '20s, keep in mind that he/she will learn from experience and might in fact become a keeper five or ten years later.

Solitaire said...

Great great list!!

I hate men who start talking about their exes right from day one.

PLEASE GET OVER YOUR EX-LOVE/TRAUMA..whatever! before even TRYING to go out with someone again.

And puhleeeeeeeeeeease...yes..do not talk about yourself the whole time. I was talking to this one guy ONLINE (not a date, just a new friend). Everytime I would say something about myself (for example what I ate for dinner), he would talk about what he had for 7 nights in a row for a dinner.

YAWN!

Keshi said...

haha Mansi I loved it!


**Hi, my face is up here moment..

I left that one out of MY list cos I always say that in my posts, so I wanted someone else to say it this time ard. LOL good one sweetz n ty!

**and still if it comes, then think of it in a beutiful way

I cant think of SMELLY as BEAUTIFUL Ankur! They r poles apart :)




**When u r arnd how can we talk abt sm1 else!!

omg u hv no idea how Mr.Darcy spent out entire Dinner date talking abt his rather eccentric n super-bitchy ex! He wudnt let me talk a single word...all he ever said was abt his ex's tantrums and what she did, said, ate, wore etc and how she threatened him after breaking uop, how she cried, how she phoned, how she stalked him etc etc etc! I wanted to throw up..and nah I didnt eat much either!




** i will ignore the eating part

aww..but I was FORCED not to eat cos Mr.Darcy made me sick from his Ex talk. LOL!



**holding hands is fine for me

I dun wanna even do that. lolz, I know, Im difficult. :)



ur a very nice and well-mannered guy Ankur. U dun fit anywhere in this list. HUGZ!

I hvnt found such a man either...one who stayed anyways. LOL!


**1) Don't name drop ( a common affliction in Indian men) and tell me how many politicians/ partners/ senior advocates you know. Tell me what you know.


So true! Some men r I-KNOW-HIM Bragaholics!




**2) Don't tell me how much money your Daddy has or what a big car he bought you. Tell me what you as an individual have done, and not what Daddy gifted you on a 24 karat gold plated platter.


lol good one!



**assets/houses

Most prolly he's waiting for his rich relatives to die!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

SMM..


**And also don't get drunk and show off how fast you can drive

thats another good one! I HATE PPL WHO DRINK TO SHOW OFF. It's not manly at all. In fact it's COWARDLY and shitty behavior. And NO it's not fashionable to get drunk!



Keshi.

ty Jay!

Life begins at 40..so they say :) Ur never too old for Love.



**Never take a girl to a place where there is live music on the first date. You don't get to talk and she might hate the band.

**Don't get drunk on the first date either. That's bad form.

well-said! Read my reply to SMM above.

**there are some inevitable moments of silence, so playing with cutlery a little should be permissible.


aww..a lil is ok, I agree :) After all we r human.




**It's fine to expect a perfect date, but small things do go wrong like not able to decide from the menu or a spill.

that I can u'stand that. They r not in my list, r they? :)

I so know those types! *yawwwwwwwwwn*




**I also hate it when they r the intellectual geeky types and think of women as bimbos and when i try sayin somethin serious, laughs it away as bein silly


OMG I so know that kind too! GOOD ONE Preeti. They just treat women like they r bimbos and act as if the Woman's say is insignificant! JERKS.




Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Irshad!

yes ur comment in the earlier post was a real eye-opener for many ppl. ty for that!

No I didnt show it to the ppl who need to see it. Cos my relatives/friends dun read my blog. I like to keep it that way. Besides, even if they read it, they wudnt u'stand it. Cos they seem to live in their own worlds and no, ppl dun change that easily...



**Why should other pay a price for what they’ve not done?


I agree. U never know who ur going out with, so it's best to be careful than careless!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Pinku!

After ur comment, I requested the guys to list em too. And some did, which is good :)



**'overtly checking out other women while out on a date with one'.

GREAT ONE! How cud I hv forgotten this one! :)


I simply loathe it when my Date scans other women's boobs n ass, as if he's stricken by a deadly Boobomania! Shameless men.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Fingers!


**Unless you've been dating ex-convicts recently released after lengthy prison stays, I'd have thought most of those tips were self-evident...


lol dun I live in the land of ex-Convicts! ;-)



Self-evident? Yeah rite! Most men forget what's self-evident when they go out. Mr.Darcy talked abt his Ex the whole time which made me feel like throttling him violently. And nah he's not an Ex-Convict FYI!

ty Tarun!


Ur THE first man here to give us girls some tips :) Well done!



*other than Keshi

why??




**.For heavens sake show up on time


totally agree. I hate being stood up! Good one there Tarun.




**Dress smart.A "conservative" sense of dressing is a personal welcome.

aha ok. wut if she wore Jeans n a T? Is that ok?



**Dont get a friend along,

thats a big NO-NO! Cos it gives the impression that the girl is not confident enough to even think abt a r'ship.




**Dont wear excessive make up

Im not a full-on Makeup chick. Just eye-liner only n very light lisptick...:)



**Dont forget to read the morning newspaper's sports column


WTF! lol then make sure u dun forget to read COSMOPOLITAN before u head out!




**Dont be fidgetty over the earring/necklace, heel.


ok but trust me, if I lose an earring mid-way thru the Date, I'd be very sad. :( cos I love wearing ear-rings...hate my ears to be undressed.




**"what would you like to eat". .. ...

good one there. I dun like the answer 'anything' either.



**.Stop bitching about the gal in the office.

yes..I hate ppl who bitch abt others when they r on a Date. Mr.Darcy bitched abt his Ex the whole time and that kinda gave me the impression that he's NOT OVER HER YET.




**For once take a guy for what he is rather that what your dream man is.

thats a hard one to convince Tarun. Every girl has a dream man...just as much as every guy has a dream girl. And that does not mean a movie star lookalike etc...things just hv to click..or else u cant force urself to like someone just so that u dun stick to that dreamy imaginations.


ty..that was a neat list!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Urv :)

Great new pic of u there!

*wolf whistels* ;-)



**>bring her parole officer, Mom
or Big Brother

hahaha! MUM? urrrrrrrrg!



**>talk about how awful her last BF was..


Mr.Darcy puked abt his Ex the whole time - thru the ENTIRE dinner date! Mebbe he's still in love with her?



**>tell you about her exorcism

wut? :)



**>act like she's all dat and a bag of chips!

lol Donn!



**>fill out a temporary restraining order during the meal

LMAO!




**>relay a message from God


hahahaha!




**>thank the bartender for the multiple orgasms the night before


omg lolz!




>bring her BFF unless she is into threesomes

hahahahahahaha!



**>talk shop or shopping

awww :)



**>plant her barely tethered knockers on the table and tell him that she just got two new puppies

lol!

Surely ur not gonna like me if I came in smelly clothes or talked constantly on the phone? :):)



**OMG I jsut been out with a Whitesnake!" Cos Whitesnakes do it so much better,

hahaha cute one!


I'd love to sip coffee while u hv ur beer...wud be lovely to spend an evening chatting with ya. HUGZ!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Steve..


**Most importantly......be ya self.
Dont pretend ta be something ya not.


yes I agree. But if being himself is scratching his crotch, then I'd like to know that in the first date itself and yes it'll be the last. LOL!

ty Devil!

**but lip gloss, mascara and kohl will definitely earn them browny points...

aww then u'll like me. :):)


**talk

I agree. It's imp to talk girls, and not keep silent thru the entire Date. Its embarassing for the guy.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Ria!

I hope u had a good day yday? where's my share of ur bday cake? :)


**I think one thing tht really puts me off is when the guy jus goes on ans on bragging abt himself, his life and stuff like tht!

I so agree!



**Also some guys get so curious to knw abt u tht they start askin personal questions on the 1st date....which makes anybody uncomfortable and this turns out to b one big date blunder


good one! There r some dudes who ask VERY PERSONAL qns when they dun even know the girl for more than 2 days! Where r the brains??


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hahaha Cindy ty!


**PLz dont look a her you-know-where, even if they are begging you to look at them. Lets see how much a man you are..lol !!!


lol so true! u know some men just talk to my chest.




**Donot tell her, "you look sexy" ! :O "You look beautiful" or "you look pretty" will work out just as fine.


Agreed!




**Be chivalrous ! It aint that hard, but yeah, hard enough to keep it separate form chauvinism. SO be careful.

SO TRUE. Good one there Cindy!

ty G-man!

Ur sooo like me. Im not into this Dating shit. My former BFs were all good friends first, just like how ur GFs were.

The only 2 Dates I ever went on was with Mr.Darcy...which ended in 7 days anyways. LOL!




**i don't really pay much attention to what i wear, all i do is make sure that the colours don't clash


cute and thank God atleast one guy thinks abt it, cos its imp! :)



**mostly, when i go out to a chinese place or somethin, i order the thingy on the menu that is the most difficult to pronounce. more often than not, i am left wondering how the bloody hell to eat it!

haha!




**ppl pick their noses and grab their crotch on a date? ew! that's just plain gross!!!

lol some do I guess, cos they r born with those qualities!




**but i think guys find it difficult to get emotionally involved with anything, even a pet rock. at least i do

I agree...guys r not emotional beings..

don't brag about your sex-ploitations!!

Liberal said...

TY Keshi:
I did not notice the part where you asked for the guy's opinion...thus proving that guys are lousy listeners, even on blogs!
As you have asked, let me rebut

1) Stop forming an image of the guy in your mind so detailed & optimistic that we always end up disappointing you.

2)As for the kiss thing, women really need to understand that men don't understand what it is in us that you find attractive. So we go on hunches sometimes. I haven't been bold enough to try to plant one on the first date, but let me make it clear that girls are always welcome to do so! Some double standards are necessary!

3)Ladies, remember that we need not notice everything about you. Breasts are easy to see, and there is something in our DNA that makes us look. Sure, we need not stare, but sometimes you talk such boring stuff that your breasts seem better at conversation

4)As far as eyebrows, as long as you have two distinct ones, we are cool

5) We never notice your shoes, so forget it!

6) We talk about ourselves, because, we try to overcompensate when we want you to like us. It is easy for girls to attract guys. We need to improvise..sure our 8th grade penalty shootout story destroys any possible romance, but we learn from mistakes

7)Do not show up late, we hate that. Yes we say it is cute, but it is sick.

8)If we don't call for a week, you start playing mental games with yourself. So just take a gift and smile if you get a call saying "I had a nice time; we should do this again."

9)if a guy who is with you ogles at someone else, that is rude. There is no defense to that.

10)Having said all this, and forgetting many more...let me add, that you are damn witty and really cute. Keep writing. It is a pleasure to read your stuff!

**You may well be of Sri Lankan heritage but unless one of your relatives or friends arranges a marriage to a stranger, you are going to be sitting home for a long time


I agree and dont agree there :) Cos my mum sat at home, never dated anyone, but out of an unimaginable situation, she found her man. And it didnt start on a romantic note at all...quite the opp! I'll write that story one of these days in my blog. :)


I mean Love happens in the weirdest and the most unexpected ways too. Dating isnt a must for that...

aww...I can see where ur coming from. Girls look for emotional cues whereas Boys look for Sexual cues. Its nature btw.



**3)Ladies, remember that we need not notice everything about you. Breasts are easy to see, and there is something in our DNA that makes us look. Sure, we need not stare, but sometimes you talk such boring stuff that your breasts seem better at conversation

lol good one!
So girls rem, talk interesting stuff or else be stared at :)




**4)As far as eyebrows, as long as you have two distinct ones, we are cool

hahahaha! monobrows r now WC ha!





**5) We never notice your shoes, so forget it!

really? thats a newbie for me. I love shoes and I wanna strut my stuff on em all the time. LOL!





**6) We talk about ourselves, because, we try to overcompensate when we want you to like us. It is easy for girls to attract guys. We need to improvise..sure our 8th grade penalty shootout story destroys any possible romance, but we learn from mistakes


aww...good one there!





**7)Do not show up late, we hate that. Yes we say it is cute, but it is sick.

:) I hate that too!





**8)If we don't call for a week, you start playing mental games with yourself. So just take a gift and smile if you get a call saying "I had a nice time; we should do this again."


wow nice one there :)




**9)if a guy who is with you ogles at someone else, that is rude. There is no defense to that.


ty for agreeing with that one!




**10)Having said all this, and forgetting many more...let me add, that you are damn witty and really cute. Keep writing. It is a pleasure to read your stuff!


awww....sweeet! :) tnxx n HUGZ!

**male or female...
don't brag about your sex-ploitations!!


I agree! Its so YUKKK. We dun wanna know it..no NOT YET!





**males...
don't brag about being well endowed!

haha I love this one! Alot of men use that to attract women. Some money-greedy women do fall for that...but not me!





Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Kaylz HUGZ!

wuts wrong? :(

oii oii Mystique ;-)



**it is their ability to stare constantly at the two mounts that gives us gentlemen types (some girls have accused me of being one)the ones who look in the eyes and talk a distinct advantage...

Invincible said...

Hey Keshi !!
Like i said, i do read your blog occasionally thru feed-reader. So i feel we are not that apart :)

And thnks a ton for stopping by mine. I just scribbled something during the NBA playoffs & that would tell ya i m in the US.

I (really) miss those happy smiling days. I am so glad your blog is so happening after all these years. OK let me now bore you.

P.S. u r my sister !! :-)

Mystique Wanderer said...

oii oii keshi...

u seem to have missed out completely on the cute quote from 'a beautiful mind' read my earlier comment...

btw this war cud keep going on...there are jerk guys and worse gals...and then the ones we find likeable and adorable...

...not all men ignore the shoes...some of us get weak in the knees seeing a woman who not only takes care of her upper floors but also of the base of the building...pretty feet and smart shoes are a definite winner...though it must be preceded by a persona and charm and wit to carry it thru... (now now sounds like i am putting ads for my type of girl all over town :P )

jitendra said...

kesar: you didnt tell what to DO in first dates. 'Doing' (the right thing) is more important you see :)

Keshi said...

ty v000nie my darling brother :)


Ur in the US now? WOW nice.


** I am so glad your blog is so happening after all these years

its gotta be...I never grow OLD.

** never know what life brings up...or what ure going to fall for..thats called serendipity


I did notice that..and I did think how special it was. :)

I think ur type of girls live in my blog...there r some GREAT gals in here. Check em out ;-)

Keshi said...

hey Jitterbug!


**you didnt tell what to DO in first dates. 'Doing' (the right thing) is more important you see


I did tell u abt the DOs too. The opp of all the DONTs are the DOs. :):)



Keshi.

Mystique Wanderer said...

or no i missed ure reply to my comment in the flurry of replies :P

the hitch like movie did inspire me to get into business...but i do it more as social service...but i do maintain the same principles

don't advice ppl who talk abt jst doing girls...and help those poor souls who feel lost as to wat to do...girls can be quite exasperating smetimes...not that i am a seasoned warrior...but since its almost impossible to know wat a girl wants...its best to give the benefit of experience to dear frnz undergoing a similar situation

Nirmal said...

but i will crib next time i go 4 a date..

on how my gf choosed washing machine and foot massager in place of me...

heheheeh

Keshi said...

Mystique heyy!



**but i do it more as social service

so d u hv a Dating Advice agency? :)



I like how u think...u r quite the guy I'd love to be out on a friendly-date with...no strings attached - dun panic. just to chat n hv a good time. Hows that?


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hahahah Nirmal u still rem that? awww...


Keshi.

Nirmal said...

how can i forget that day gal...it pains..

the stygian sailor said...

i dont care that i dont have a date.
and after reading your list, i dont think it is fun.
i would rather watch football and drink beer :)

Keshi said...

Nirmal I can take u to a doc...if it 'pains' so much LOL!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

aww Stygian..I so agree. I'd rather mop the kitchen floor than go on a date. haha!

Keshi.

the stygian sailor said...

bad call for you :)
you will miss out on opportunities. and then you ll write one more post. which ll be called "desperate and STILL Dateless"

Mystique Wanderer said...

slap slap Keshi girl...u rant and rant and then when the chap asks for help as to do's u chicken out...

okie here goes some do's a guy's perspective plz do add on ladies...(i generally pefer the term feline species....but since this is a politically sensitive forum :P )

1. What does she like...unless ure on a blind date and have no clues abt her plz set up the date according to what a girl might like...and don't try and overdo it...it needn't be fabulous...wherein u run the risk of it turning out to fall flat...just the difference of knowing lillies, roses or carnations could make the difference

2. is she a talker or a listener? if she's a talker...plz listen...and take notes...she expects u to remember all the likes and dislikes shes blurting out somewhere as part of her story telling....take her side...if there is a villain in the story...guy or gal...as far as u go..she's the heroine...so take her side...ure not there to preach

if she's a listner...talk about a lot of things and see wat topics she sounds interested in...don't overdo any one...just coz ure an architect and she sounds interested doesnt mean she'll want to know wat mix of cement and stone is used these days...

3. compliment...subtly...most women prefer subtle compliments...hair, earrings, dress and shoes are best complimented...oh perfume too...but thats a tricky one...

4. nice place, nice ambience, nice crowd...plz get some reviews of the place u r taking her...or better take her where u've been before

5. a don't: unless ure in school going to cinema as a first date is suicidal...as it is dumb

6. a first date...is mostly if u've not been frnz for long an interview of sorts...play games like word associations and all..they are fun...do not play spin the bottle ;) though between two ppl its a much better game for a latter date...

7. let her see ure best side...but don't throw it in her face...talk about ure good times...if u can sing take her to karoke bar..if u can dance...take her to a dance floor...if u can talk (thats me)...take her to riverside on a moonlit night :P ...some girls are not all feminine and stuff and if she's not dressed to much u could even go playing bowling etc if she's ure sporting type gals...

so last part of gyan...if ure taking a girl out..i presume ure interested in her...so take that further and do things that would interest her...

and last hope that she's interested in u and reciprocates by doing things or talking things that interest u...football for one :P

long post Keshi...saaary...btw ne of ure smart single frnz in the vicinity of delhi...do hint them to visit my profile ;)

Keshi said...

haha Stygian!


**you will miss out on opportunities

Keshi said...

** DESPERATE HOUSEWIFE !


hahaha Stygian good one!



Keshi.

Ghost Particle said...

hehehe...i want to write proper comments...not long comments...hahaha...but i have no word anymore...except lame ass unfunny ones...which i can write wout thinking...grrrr...

i jst need a freakin vacation i tink...

and i really do think of you...its ok if u dun blieve.

Ghost Particle said...

:P :-x

Mystique Wanderer said...

HOT??? who me...naah...ain't got no money, ain't got no style, i ain't even got mogic potions to work ure smile...i ain't got no looks u'd swoon for, i ain't a hero or a singer u'd croon for...i am jumpy, cranky, and sarcastically witty...and i'll be damned if i don't land up a zillion different adventures in my kitty

plz put it on my tombstone :P

Keshi said...

Ghosty u dun always writer neat, proper, long/short comments in other blogs..d u? :)

Its abt being 'present' in a friend's life...and in a place like the net, unless u leave a comment saying Hi, I dunno if Im present in ur life or not.


Anyways, I dun wanna make this sound like a bitter whinge, cos it's not. :) Im cool.


*HUGZ*


Keshi.

Tarun said...

*other than Keshi

why??

>Does anybody cares taking down notes?


**.For heavens sake show up on time


totally agree. I hate being stood up! Good one there Tarun.

>Being late is peeve.Not known any of my friends being on time.Not even her. :(


**Dress smart.A "conservative" sense of dressing is a personal welcome.

aha ok. wut if she wore Jeans n a T? Is that ok?

>Thats fine.

**Dont get a friend along,

thats a big NO-NO! Cos it gives the impression that the girl is not confident enough to even think abt a r'ship.

>If a gurl does that,then it is highly likely that the guys next date would be her friend.LOL

**Dont wear excessive make up

Im not a full-on Makeup chick. Just eye-liner only n very light lisptick...:)

>Light make-up is an indifferent yardstick.there are some women who wouldnt wash their face before applying enough make up.ROFL

**Dont forget to read the morning newspaper's sports column


WTF! lol then make sure u dun forget to read COSMOPOLITAN before u head out!

>Would prefer reading ur Do's and Dont's again.
LOL

**Dont be fidgetty over the earring/necklace, heel.


ok but trust me, if I lose an earring mid-way thru the Date, I'd be very sad. :( cos I love wearing ear-rings...hate my ears to be undressed.

>Me too love buying earring for her. :)
Thy look good. :D

**"what would you like to eat". .. ...

good one there. I dun like the answer 'anything' either.

>Not anything too spicey for me.Chocolate pastry would be a drool.Yummy. :)

**.Stop bitching about the gal in the office.

yes..I hate ppl who bitch abt others when they r on a Date. Mr.Darcy bitched abt his Ex the whole time and that kinda gave me the impression that he's NOT OVER HER YET.

>Yeah it represents a hallow personality. :(

**For once take a guy for what he is rather that what your dream man is.

thats a hard one to convince Tarun. Every girl has a dream man...just as much as every guy has a dream girl. And that does not mean a movie star lookalike etc...things just hv to click..or else u cant force urself to like someone just so that u dun stick to that dreamy imaginations.

>Yes I agee that the person u may meet for the first time wont be the perfect one.But first judgment may not be the best one.

ty..that was a neat list!

> I appreciate that. :))

Keshi said...

haha bloody cute Mystique!

In that case, I think UR THE BEST! :)


wut I want written on my grave:

"It DIDNT happen"



lol!




Keshi.

Ghost Particle said...

awww keshi...dun break my heart. u know me better than anyone...its really the moments...ive explained to u bef in da mails right... :(

Keshi said...

ty Tarun!

**If a gurl does that,then it is highly likely that the guys next date would be her friend

hahahahaha!



Keshi.

the stygian sailor said...

and
*Pay only for your meal/coffee
who pays if the girl did the asking business???
does that still mean i have to pay?

Keshi said...

Ghostyyy I aint breaking ur heart. And Im talking like this with u cos I really DO CARE.

its a bit disheartening to see my closest buddies in other places except mine...I dunno, but it does make me sad. Am I not appealing a friend anymore? maybe...maybe not.

Either way, I hv to say how I feel..thats why I said it :) U know me..I say it in the open.

Sorry if it hurt ya.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

noooo Stygian, if she asked to pay, then let her pay. :)


Keshi.

Ghost Particle said...

dumb dumb me... :(

Keshi said...

ur not dumb Ghosty...ur just bored with me and my long posts hehe.


Keshi.

the stygian sailor said...

damn! i wasted my money. damn :)

Ghost Particle said...

no im not! ur my bff! :( grrrrrrrrrrr...

i love you so much I can eat you. but i have no energy rite now...will drop by in sydney in da future and do that.

Tarun said...

Comment Part II:
Things for us guys to do.

Purely my perspective.

1.Take ur bussiness magazine/iPod with u.She will be late.

2.Have something before u meet her.Something non garlic non onion.

3.If the jeans u wearing should be washed at least three days back.

4.If u wearing shoes then make sure ur toes arent peeping out.

5.Flowers is a bit too creamy,getting her chocolates makes sense.

6.Switch your mobile to a silent mode.

7.If a friend calls stop swearing and finish the calls.

8.Make sure ur boss isnt living around and its not office hours.

9.Drop her off to where she can hike back or get some sort of commuting facility.

10.Wait till she is outta sight,dont say good bye and start running away from her at Maurice Greens pace.

Prakhar said...

well i used this post as reference to my roomie....he so wanted to call after the date!!...i guess u r spot on!

Vest said...

In my younger days before marriage I can truthfully say I was asked for a date nearly as much as I asked. I often wondered did these young ladies have access to a peephole into my bathroom?

And Keshi will say "I dont believe it".
Thats right, most of them said it was too hard to believe.

June 25.
Happy Birthday Keshi, XXX.

tqmcintl said...

unless I get both emotionally and intellectually stimulated by the guy,...and ......

arent u missing something ?

Just Another Person said...

well keshi to be honest if i'm attracted to the guy enough, i wouldn't give two hoots whether it is mcdonald's or that expensive fancy restaurant. at the risk of sounding cheap, it just wouldn't matter and so far, it hasn't mattered. I mean, if the company of that person is not appealing enough to guarantee a good time without him having to splurge on me, then i'm prolly better off spending my time with someone else instead. And (once again) at the risk of sounding cheap, I wouldn't mind getting physical on the first date. My point is that if the attraction is strong enough for us picky girls (yah i m a bit picky too!) to agree to date in the 1st place, then why lay down so many expectations that go beyond the person itself. OF course, the nose picking is not tolerable lol but hey, whats a happy meal or two. And the leg shaking doesnt get to me =D i'm guilty of leg shaking at times too. =D hehehe loved ur post. very true, why date just for the sake of dating.

Satish Bolla said...

sorry abt ur first date. i know that i shouldn't b sorry. it's Mr Darcy who should b... ;)

anyways, i agree with almost all the points that u mentioned except the last one. a call after a date shows others how much u care.

anyways, u forgot one simple but important point - "never yawn on a date"

Sam said...

Alright.. just about everything you've mentioned is more general than a guy's do's and don'ts...
however, there one piece of advice.. in case you are getting late or can't turn up, do let ur date knw abt it well in advance!!

and yeah, regarding the last point... I don't believe in calling.. but i do believe in dropping a sweet message post date and before tucking in.. coz i believe "the lady must've had other options, yet she came out with me!!"

stony said...

Very informative post indeed.

Her are some supplements (on lighter side)

*Touch your Crotch area

Guys! YOU must not do it. Wait until your date does it.

*Talk about your life only

Talk only during the short breaks she takes for breathing. Or when she is extremely tired of her talking.

*Say 'I Love You'

Don't... unless you are sure she expects plus you know what you are saying.

maverick said...

lol...that was a fun read...will keep all that in mind when i come to the land down under :)

mayz said...

thats for u to "solve" ;)

Ghost Particle said...

u there kesh....

Here stands Ghost, guilty as charged. Guilty guilty fcking guilty. You may kill me and send me to hell now, I have roamed earth and made enough ppl miserable already.

DewdropDream said...

Umm... aren't you confusing those poor guys when you first say 'Don't talk only about yourself' and then say 'Don't ask too many questions'?? :D

Maybe you simply ought to tell us what your idea of a perfect first date is! :)

ani said...

hey ya...

i soo agree with the things you have listed about guys shouldn't do on a first date.. it just puts us off..but then that doesn't mean.. that guys should not express themselves.. it should be done such a way that.. both of them still have their space.. should exactly be hovering on each other all the time...

but then i also liked what tarun and donn commented.. coz i have heard couple of girly friends.. some of them don't have any time managment turn up for their dates like close to 30mins to an hour late .. just to see if the guy would wait.. those guy's were patient enough.. but am sure if the roles were reversed my friends would have left from the place in a huff with in 10mins..

ahem..... can i take u to dinner on 45th floor of the ANA Hotel tonight? there we can view amazing Sydney around ^_~ what say?? hehe.. hope u got my mail... aww missed u, missed everybody n everything here!! goshh we have lotta things to talk na.. ill catch up with ya soon sweetie! ^_~ u tc muahh...
