Chapter 8 – The Big Date

I don’t know about you, but I’m an old-school cat who was recently thrown back into the dating scene. At first I was excited to hit the town and bounce around random bars, but things have changed its not the same anymore. I don’t know what to say or do, the rules seem to be different. I’ve been asking my buddies for advice, but what the hell do they know, they’re still single. So instead, I thought I’d ask some of the hottest women I know about the new rules of dating in this world wide web of social media and pc police.

SMN – What was your first date like, where did you go?
CAT – My first date was super casual. I don’t know if you’d really call it a date but it was my first time being alone and out with a boy that I liked. We met at our local pet shop and then went for milkshakes.  Then we walked over to a park and just sat and talked. It was cute and sweet.

SMN – What was your worst dating experience?
CAT – The guy picked me up at my house but didn’t come to the door, simply texted that he was there waiting for me.  He ordered for me at dinner while I was in the bathroom, he commented on the waitress’s ass,  insisted on grabbing my ass at every chance he could. At the theater he asked my opinion on what movie to go to, but then picked by himself anyways. He wouldn’t stop putting my hand on his dick in the theatre and talking during the movie. After, he assumed he was staying the night and got out of the car when he dropped me off, even though I didn’t invite him. Just bad lol. Never should have left the house.

SMN – Wow, he sounds like a keeper. Do you have a favourite date or night out?
CAT – Of course! He took me to a wonderful trail with a waterfall. Brought a killer joint lol. Packed a picnic with some fresh fruit and wine…and pastries!  Spent the day exploring the creek. Favourite dating experience.


SMN – Is there such a thing as “dating ettiqute?” How should a guy behave on a date?
CAT – Men should behave how they want to be treated. Respectful, polite. And with no expectations. Just because you’re taking a girl out does not mean you’re entitled to anything. I find now in the dating scene, there’s alot of entitlement. I heard a guy say once “I took this girl out on my boat and she didn’t even put out” that’s a good example of a pig. A date should be a time to get to know each other, not something done to get something else.

SMN – What are some turn-offs on a date, things a guy can say or do that will kill his chances before last call?

CAT – Turn offs include chewing with your mouth open, being rude to staff or anyone for that matter, talking about yourself, showing off, inappropriate jokes like racist or sexist comments, inappropriate or unsolicited touching

ASHLEY GRIBBLE 4137 WSMN – …its sounds like you’ve had more than your share of bad dates….let’s end on a positive note. What about turn-ons?  It sounds like keeping my mouth shut and my hands to myself is a good place to start. lol  

What are some of the things a guy can say or do to make sure last call includes breakfast the next morning?

CAT – Turn ons include being funny or witty, intellectual conversation, a good listener, taking an interest in my interests, a good dancer always helps lol

SMN – What’s your ideal date, your fantasy date?
CAT – I like dates that are unusual. Something fun. Zip lining or exploring somewhere new. Anything outside is great. Seeing a cool exhibit or a show. Going to a wildlife sanctuary would be epic. Spending the day at the beach with a picnic and good music.

SMN – If you could go on a date with any celebrity, who would it be and where would you go?
CAT – I have two celebrity dates I’d like to go on. Since I’m bisexual, one is female and one is male. I’d love to go on a date with Rihanna. She loves the beach so I’d want to go to the beach, maybe boating or snorkeling. Dancing at night. Super cliche but I’d love to go on a date with Drake. I think he’d be very down to earth and relaxed. Go to an amusement park maybe, or show me around Toronto. Maybe I could work it out so all 3 of us go out lol since they’re together. Now that’d be a fantasy date!
