Have you ever dated a stranger?

I'm referring to someone you have never met before other in passing, or someone you don't talk (much) or spend time with but occasionally see them out and about.

I mainly have men who I've never seen or talk to before ask to take me out and I always declined simply because I don't know them. On the other hand, there are some men in my neighborhood that I see about 4-5 times a week when I'm coming and going, usually when I walk my dog. We always speak but other than that there's no interaction. Two of these men have asked me out but I decline because I didn't know them.

I just wanted to know how often you've gone out with someone whose virtually a stranger, if you have at all. Should I stop being so cautious and give one of these men a chance?

  • I have been on a couple blind dates. I was always a bit nervous and i made sure to tell my friends where I was going, but they all turned out to be really fun experiences. If you barely know a person, small talk will be quite easy, e. g. Where are you from, where do you work, what are your hobbies and stuff 😊

  • I never go out with guys I don't know. I need a friendship built before anything because I want to be best friends before anything. I've only sorta dated one guy and even though we can't be together because life is taking us different ways right now I can say that being good friends before anything was the best choice I made

  • Yep! It's the best. There's so much to talk about, and it's like a fresh start with someone who knows nothing about you 😊

      Does it ever make you nervous?

      Oh 100%. So nervous that it feels like my heart will beat out of my chest haha. However, it's always worth it to me. I love it. I love meeting people from all walks of life, and when it clicks, it's very rewarding.
