A Personal Reflection Of What Happened On My First Date And What I Learned From It. (You Can Just Pretend It Was You)

850 words - 3 pages

I have always wondered why people are so shy around or at the very least act differently towards the opposite sex. This reminds me of an experience I had once. What happened on my first date what I learned from it. Looking back, I remember many things about that night, like, what specifically happened there, how I felt during this strange ordeal, and finally; what I learned from the experience.From what I remember, before the date even started, I must have spent at least two hours getting ready and probably spending 40 minutes of that brushing my hair. While I was getting ready, the only thing I could hear was my parents nagging me, telling me what to do and to be careful, but I wasn't listening, I was too busy thinking about how much fun I was going to have with my date and how I must look "cool" in my date's eyes. Well, when I finally picked my date up, she sat next to me in the car and didn't say a thing. It was quite odd, it was as if she was expecting me to say something, but I wasn't paying attention, I was too busy anticipating what was to come. Looking back, I should have consoled her or at least asked how she was, but I didn't. When we arrived at the theater I quickly paid for our tickets and sat down in the seats. While I was watching the movie, I felt a strange awkward silence as if something was not right. After about half an hour into the movie, I got curious, so I quickly glanced at my date who looked disappointed somehow. But, because of my lack of experience with women, I didn't know how to approach this, so I tried to put my arm around her neck. The next thing I knew my own hand was flying full speed back towards my face and my date was crying! I had no idea why she was, but then she lifted her hands from her face and told me that I was just an empty shell and that I didn't truly care about her and only thought about myself. She then asked me to take her home. Even after she was gone, I was totally clueless as to what she meant. So in a few words, my first date was a disaster. During this date, I felt a large spectrum of emotions. Before the date started, I was feeling ecstatic...
