Dating advice

Well, I'm 17 and before last week I'd never had a girlfriend ever... yeah what can I say, I'm a bit of a loser. But I asked out this girl and she said yes.. seems we've both liked eachother for a long time, so that's great!

But anyway, I'm completely new at this whole relationship, so while I have a little idea of what's going on, I'm fairly clueless.

So this is your chance to impart upon me any and all advice you have for healthy fun relationships, and hopefully we can all learn from eachother!

And I also need ideas for happy, fun, exciting things to do on dates. Movie, dinner, what else?

flowers never ever hurt. well i get hurt if i go too long without presenting them?
yes
but when you do show up with them, even if there a little on the cheap side, the girls love 'em.

as for places to go, we like to go out regularly to small eateries around ottawa, i enjoy walks and so does she(you're in london, right? great place for walks!).

before you get too serious i will tell you about a test i have run on every single girl i have ever taken out(i once borrowed my friends car cause mine was in the shop and my parents are too nice for this, after she proved herself then we took my dads, hehehe):
it must be done when you are driving, it really only works on an older model car(non power doors) but it's not a neccesity.
unlock the car door for her, open it and let her sit down and firmly, but at the same time gently, close it.
as you walk around the car to the drivers side it is a safe assumption that the individual sitting in the passenger side will either
a. reach across and unlock your side(this is for non-power lock cars), doing this would show a very high level of caring on her part.

b. unlock the car via a power lock, while this does not show the same level of caring, keep in mind that it is not her fault and maybe an indication of intelligence that she found that before waisting energy leaning across.

c. if she does nothing then it is safe to assume that you may want to think about this girl again.

obviously for cars with key fobs this is in no way effective, unless you pretended it didn't work but then you might be someone she might want to think about spending time with...ok i am going to shut up now cause i have a mid term tommorow morning.

Yay!! I'm so happy for you SkeeK!

Hmm.. well.. I would say dont get all serious too quick. Just enjoy each others company as friends and if more happens, go with it!

SKEEKER!!!
DAMON! DUDE!

How CoME YoU DiDNt TeLl ME!!???

WOO!


Hahaha. Man, if you need any help with anything man, just ICQ me aiight? But heres a hint, dont invite me and Phil to go to a movie with you and your chick, that didnt go over well LMAO... Oh well. But yeah. Dont be afraid to ask man. I dont mind talkin about it, and youre less than a loser than I am so pshhhh. Dont worry about it though. But Ill say this now, good communication and trust are probably the singlemost important things in a relationship. Be honest, but not stupid. I know you well enough that youre not gonna go cheating on her so theres nothing to worry about there, but even still. Make sure you know what she wants, likes, and doesnt like. Maybe Im just to willing to do anything for people, so maybe you dont wanna get totally whipped, but hey, being totally whipped is better than being single.

Well anyways. Ill talk to you later now for sure LOL... Why am I always the last to know these things?!??

Hey now!!!! *lol* I didn't find my first guy until I was 19...but it turned out great!

As for somewhere to NOT go...don't go to a movie...unless you don't want to have to worry about talking. But it is hard to get to know each other and such in a movie...

Unless you're one of those assholes who talks the entire time during the movie...

Dinner is always nice...lots of time for conversation...going somewhere REALLY fancy right away though can be intimidating...but the drive-thru at McDonald's is just tacky. Do something in between!

Not all women pass this test.....in fact, even after the nervousness, some still don't do it!

That's hilarious! Men are such simple creatures. Yep, that would tell you everything you need to know about a girl!

Dang, I wouldn't even know where the power lock is placed. I'm dooooooomed!

The Bronx Tale Test......

There is another test you can do. When you're driving and she is in the front seat, take your hand and put it behind her head. Then drive her head to your crotch and if she "goes to town", kick her out of the car because she's a slut who has no welf worth. If she objects, tell her it was only a test
of her character.

Also stolen from the Bronx Tale.

i have to agree with johnny swallow here. women will only break your heart.

but if you happen to get her back to your place, give her the shocker. women do love that.
