I think as you get older and your partners get older right along, it is good policy to keep a little of your weekly alcohol allowance for date night. That, and soft lighting. Applies for men and women.

Eh, just ask if she'd like to rub naughty bits together. That is how it works nowadays, right?

It's called FWE (friends with extras) in my neck of the woods.

Good luck, SecondCor--enjoy the journey into DateLand. Only advice is to have an idea of where to spend the evening when you make the date, even if you invite her input; it's not good to have the "Where do you want to go?" "I dunno, where do you want to go?" "I don't care, you pick." "No, you choose." conversation even if you're just going out with a friend, let alone a date.

And read this thread before you go out : The Case Against Remarriage

Guy here, but a short refresher course:

Always be yourself! This works best if handsome and well-to-do.

Be direct! Maybe wear that "I'm A Longhorn! (dog) T-shirt.

Everyone likes to shine so give your date a chance - how about suggesting she fix you a gourmet dinner?

That's about all I've got - suspect I'm not the only one glad I'm off the market....

Don't smoke, chew gum, scratch your rear end or pick your nose.

I don't think so! Gourmet dinners have to be earned. Just like sex.

Hey, maybe that's why I'm single.....my standards are too high!

I wouldn't presume to give a man dating advice. I only know how to give advice for attracting someone like me!

Well, maybe one little piece. Don't talk about previous wives, girlfriends, S.O.'s. Biiiiig turn-off. I'm sure it works the other way 'round (women wanting to know how to act on dates with men).

True!!

Be yourself - even if you don't consider yourself the biggest catch on the market - it's about finding the right one for YOU...and her! (unless you are just trolling for fun in the sack in which case - listen to Brewer!!

My perspective as a guy is be yourself and be honest and do not guess or play games.

If you want to know if she wants to go out, you need to ask. Just be straight up with it. When you choose an activity for the date, movies are bad (because you cannot talk or get to know a person) and a sporting event with 20,000+ people has its pros and cons (lots of people around). If you can find something in the middle, that works. If you know some of your common friends on facebook, consider thinking about how she knows those common people and making that the subjects to talk about.

The conversation does not need to be too deep too soon. Just have 3-5 subjects to discuss. And a quiet atmosphere to do it. And expect to pay for the first date until you figure the rest out.

Wow, those folks who complain about sexual innuendos will be surprised that we seem tame now compared to back in '06.

I'm glad to report that my number hasn't changed since then.
And you still must have a lot of cousins and sheep, HFWR.

Funny, funny. All I will say while not under oath was that from the age of 18 to 30, I had more fun than a man should be allowed to..........
