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.

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...
