I don't like dates. I hate those small talks and obvious/repetitive questions. The good dates are those you talk about fun stuff and who you instantly click with, but in order to go out with someone like this you gotta go with others who is just plain awkward to be with cause there's no connection.
That's why I've always preferred the "friends first, then couple", you avoid the weird dating... problem is that it takes more time.
VERY awkward... i just don't know how people do it and people treat me like a freak that i can't date the way a lot of people do but it's just off-putting because i don't like small take or repetitive questions ether like AleDe, it just feels like an interview and the pressure is on but i don't cope well unde much pressure and i like things to be spontanious and exciting, i wish i met a guy that made an adventure out of every date and never stopped doing that but made life an adventure too, he's relaxed and not afraid to be silly and doesn't treat everything so black and white like everything is just THAT simple because it's not, i hate the typical simple guy, but it's still nerve wrecking so why id wanna be with someone who relaxes me.
I think it's a little awkward for everyone at first. You're learning about new person and trying to make connections with them. The way to get past it is to really be interested in them and to ask them about themselves. Don't worry :)
