I was seeing a movie today where a guy who just met a lady asked her out on a date and I began to wonder why people in this part of the world never go on dates or maybe some do but a large number of us don’t. I get that dates is a foreign thing but the idea of it is actually very cool and important because it gives you the opportunity to know the other person better and to know if the both of you are compatible enough to have a future together.
So I started asking myself how we over here know about our partners before we start a relationship with them that was when I came to realization that most of us don’t. We just see a pretty face, woo them and then every other thing comes next after they had both agreed to be boyfriend and girlfriend. And now that I think of it, it’s nothing but a huge gamble.
But then I guess we can always end the relationship if the other person turns out to not be what we expected.
The first time I went out on a date was two years ago. There was this girl that I liked back then so I asked her if she would like to take a walk with me one evening. I know you guys were expecting something like a nice dinner date or a cinema date but taking a nice cool walk in the evening when the sun is down is also considered a date, isn’t it?
I remember me and her walking round the school and just talking about everything and nothing. It was fun even though at first I was a little bit nervous because I was worried about what we were going to talk about but the moment we met inside the school, everything just kinda sorted itself out.
The date was a really nice one or at least that was what I thought. She must have felt differently because when I finally asked her to be my girlfriend some few days later, she said no.
