dating chronicles 1: from the mailbag

Dear Bugs, when was your last date?

Well, let's just say the last time I had a date it was for malteds and cheeseburgers after the sock hop, and later I chipped my ecstatic blog entry into a stone tablet.

But it's funny you should ask, dear reader, because I will be going on a date this week. Oh sure, it's like riding a bicycle. Once you learn, you never forget how. And there's the disconcerting possibility of hit-and-run injuries.

We're going to a bullfight and then out for absinthe and cupcakes. I'll be sure to post all the fabulous details.

In the meantime, I'm trying to figure out exactly what a date is. Maybe that'll help me decide what to wear. Advice on the wardrobe, philosophy and etiquette of dating is welcome.

Dating is like...
EXCEPT there is no water,
so you look even sillyer.
wear somthing that you would often wear, for instance, not a small black dress, because that is false advertising as to who you are. Dont put on TOO Much make up, because if you do, they might be surprised NEXT time you run into them and wonder what IS it that is so different?
look like yourself, because no one likes to sleep in 4 pounds of makeup, thinning hosery and a charming smile.
and if this could be someone you could wake up with someday, then be yourself from the start so there's no surprises, cuz honeslty, anyone worth your time is going to like you for the likeable natural you.
Dont talk too much
but dont talk to little.
dont lie
dont be too honest,
a nice combination of the two is good.
if you go back to your house, set the mood with friendly music as so no one expects anything. for instance, dont spin Yanni,
may i suggest,
"Boucing around the Room" by Phish?
frienly, but not TOO friendly,
happy but not TOO excited,
sweet, but not too romantic.
just right.
AND chances are you never shared that song with someone special in the past, so theres no chance of back flashes of other romantic escapades.
date... date...
dont be all nervous, (just a little nervous) just remember, you are human, he is human (right?)
and dont feel like you need to impress him, because , well that goes for the same reasons as the dont wear too much make up.
be yourself, and if you arent comfrtable with yourself, well why the hell not

your beatiful baby, inside and out.
have fun
but not too much fun.

The obvious: Just be yourself.
If it looks like it works and it feels like it works, then it works. It all comes down to intention. Good luck.
