Bad First Dates Can Still Lead To Love

Have I ever shared the story of mine and Boyfriend's first date? It was....bad. But so like us.

Let me back up. We work in the same building, for different radio stations. We'd noticed each other but  didn't see each other that often. Eventually, a co-worker told me he was interested then we set up a date...to go golfing.

Yes, B thought the driving range was an appropriate first date. This was way back in the time of myspace (2008) he'd seen that I had a picture of me driving a golf cart. What he didn't know is that picture was from way back when I'd been dating C and I was only allowed to drive the cart while the guys golfed. I had wanted to take lessons, but never got around to it.
This picture captured his heart

We made plans to meet at the range down the street from his house (now our house.) When I arrived, he was already there and saving a spot for me. He thought he was  nice by giving me the spot with an overhead heater saving me from the freezing, December night, but I did not want him behind me, watching me. I made him switch.

He later told our co-worker he was, "sweating his balls off" in that spot and little did I know, he  could still watch my reflection in the window in front of him. As I expected, I sucked. I swung and missed the ball more than I actually hit it. When I made contact, the ball kind of roll-bounced no more than 50 feet away. This was not my ideal first date at all but I was so interested in him for some reason, I'd agreed to golf if it meant I got to hang out with him.

Finally (finally!) we'd decided we'd had enough and went to get food.

To be continued.....

Read part 2 Here!


  1. That does sound like a bad date, but I'm guessing it got much better! ;)

  2. Hahahahahahaha my ex worked in radio and took me to a driving range on our first date too, WTF! It was awful. I watched. LOL

  3. Hahaha that's so funny!! My first date with my husband was pretty funny. I didn't really like him that much but then he totally won me over later. I'm glad I stuck with it!

  4. You guys are adorable. I did not know golfing was your 1st date and that just kinda makes me laugh. Alot. Sorry!
