- 3/17/19 UPDATE -- We've updated the permissions for our "Football" and "Commit to the G" recruiting message boards. We aim to be the best free board out there and that has not changed. We do now ask that all of you good people register as a member of our forum in order to see the sugar that is falling from our skies, so to speak.
Is this good or bad advice?
This was taken from a USCe message board where someone was asking advice for a first date. Is this good or bad advice?
“Wait, you said not expensive? Doesn't that pretty much cover everything in Gaston or Swansea?
Seriously, first dates are to impress so take her to Ruth's Chris on Senate St near the Capital in Cola.
Call ahead to make reservations, explain it's a special occasion for two and you'd like a good waiter as well as a quiet table. (Dont say what the occasion is they'll just assume it's big)
Pick her up in time to relax and enjoy the short ride into Cola preferably after dark so as you come over the hill on 321 past the Food Lion (or whatever it is now) you can comment on how beautiful the skyline lights of downtown Cola appear but they truly can't hold a candle to just how beautiful she looks tonight!
Once at RC's prove just how special you think she is by pulling up to the entrance and using the valet parking. They'll ask your party name and from there the staff takes over.
Trust me on this, eat before you pick her up as you want to join her in eating at the restaurant but not a big meal; (pull up their drink menu before you go and pick a simple wine or mixed drink you feel she'll like (ask her friends). As soon as the waiter appears order both your drinks as if you do this often as well as the appetizer - BBQ Shrimp. It's tasty simple and reasonably price. Girls enjoy shrimp. Plus it begins to fill her stomach as she'll need to because she will end up ordering a salad for dinner. If you order something she likes she'll be that more impressed by your efforts).
When the menus come allow her to place her order first by insisting she feel free to order whatever she desires and encourage her to take her time, no rushing you said she's pretty so enjoy the scenery. They never order steak so it wont be expensive. Bet she orders the Wedge Salad.**never appear to be looking at any prices! Big turnoff*** You then follow up by ordering a small steak or something similar because you'll have already viewed the menu b4 hand. The Pork Chop runs about $28 and is easy to cut as well as eat slowly in smaller chunks. Women like men who are decisive and know what they want! You're not hungry so your meal will not be expensive nor large so you have time to actually talk to her instead of chewing chucks of meat! You know Toby Keith wrote that song "I wanted talk about me" for a reason. Southern Ladies will never admit it but they do want to talk about themselves and they want you to be overwhelmingly interested in them, so talk to her about her! Don't brag about yourself cause you can get into your own pants anytime you like, her's is a different story especially if she has some class about herself.
How you end the dinner and before you have the car brought around will determine where your future lays with this young lady. After the table is clear, order coffee even if you hate the stuff, ladies love coffee and ordering it as if you just always do so after meals will tell her you're totally different than any other guy she's dated. If you cant drink the stuff just sip it. She'll drink it! Don't ask if she would like some just order it!!!!
About half way thru the cup of coffee sit up all excited and ask her if she's ever had Creme Brulee and insist she try it......most young ladies havent and it'll be a treat for her and show her you're adventurous.
Now if the evening has progress like you hoped in other words she is enjoying your company and you hers, then order one Brulee with two spoons! Again, encourage her to try it first, wait for her reaction then laughing dip your spoon in. Her reaction afterwards will tell you all you need to know about how she is now feeling about you. If shes offended you put your spoon in her Brulee, then you're in trouble and this date just got panic 911!
Again, if she's into you you'll know it by now, so remember to stay relaxed and not in a rush. Let her enjoy being the Princess as long as possible.
When all is ready request the check. A good waiter never brings it, they wait until you request it. And please make sure the **** card works before you get to the restaurant! Never pay with cash - that yells, broke & I still live with my Mom! Even if you do you don't want to admit it.
Finally, assuming all has gone well, just before handing your car ticket to the valet, ask her if she's ever seen the State House at night. Don't wait for an answer just take her hand and walk her over. Taking your time walk her around the entire building pointing out where Sherman's troups hit the building with their cannons. Front right corner where the stars mark the spots. This tells her you're smart and interesting. Then find a lighted area to sit and talk. Sit next to her and if it's chilly take your coat off (you are wearing a sports coat right? Blazer w/pressed jeans and nice white cotton button down colar shirt, no golf shirts or tee shirts with **** blasting out) and place it over her shoulders without asking. What you're hoping/looking for is her sneaking a smell and smiling, if she does you're in the red zone! What you do from here is your business but she'll never forget you and even if it doesn't work out between you two, 2 things will happen in the future. 1) she'll never forget you and will compare every other guy to you. 2) she'll tell all of her girl friends how nice and wonderful your date was and every single one of them will be wanting to date YOU!
All this impressing will cost you around $150-200! Oh and dont forget to drive the Focus, Pinto, Clunker, SUV or even Red neck deer hunting truck through a car wash and yes pay the extra $5 for the interior cleaning with the Baby Fresh smelling stuff! She might live in Redneckville, I have family there as well, but for once she'd love not to be treated like she's Gretchen Wilson's baby sister and instead appreciated for just being an intelligent, beautiful young lady. Treat her right, get to know her then take her out on that four wheeler and your muddy girl dreams will come true!
Don't screw this up!”
