.the girl with the greener grass.

oh envy envy. :)

someone very dear to me went out on a date today. an actual date. u know, the type i havent experienced for a while now. *not hinting!*

it was an honest, "i'll take you out tomorrow night at 7." kinda thing. a "he picked me up and spoke to my family" type of date. also the "he made reservations at a restaurant" and "he naturally insisted on picking up the check" kinda rare occasions. ooh, and not forgetting the "he drove me home, said goodnight and made plans for the coming friday night" type of scenario... :)

i dont know bout u, but i think thats all really sweet. very 90s type of dating style, but so dearly missed and not to mention, so very underrated.

and despite what u may think about paying for dinner, no, its not an issue of being materialistic. its what most girls would find a gentleman-ly and courteous act. and no, it doesn't mean you have to pay for every subsequent meals. lets just say, first impressions really do count.

Yeah babe dont worry. I will take you out tomorrow night and i always speak to your family. Dont think i have to make reservations at the restaurant we are going to..(hint hint: green tea house) and as usual dont mind to pick up any check. You can drive me home and i can sleep over if you want. Best part is believe it or not we already have plans for this week, next week and the coming week so we are pretty much more ahead compare to the someone dear to you. Woohoo!!!

i agree that that's how a first date should go, but i dunno bout the meet family part... sounds scary. i'd rather reserve that for after a few dates...

dammit stan, u're so bloody sweet. haHa :) cant wait till ur back!!! green tea housseeeeee...!!! :)

anon: lol it wasnt "meeting meeting"... more like, coming in to say hello to us (kinda like a subtle assurance) before taking out our little girl. :) i think its respectful...
