    I was curious, in this day and age who goes on a 'date'? For me, I think the concept of 'going on a date' with someone is just so formal and forced, almost like a ******** ritual we go through or something.

    Personally, I MEET UP with girls and 'get to know them' (maybe over a cup of coffee), I never refer to it as a 'date'....though it's quite clear why we're both there....I just think referring to it as a 'date' seems cheesy and Americanised.

    So when was the last time you went on 'date', where was it to, and how did it go?

    Personally, a date means dinner with someone or someone inviting me for an activity. Coffee or lunch is too informal for it to mean anything to me because I do that with close friends but don't really do one-on-one dinners with guy friends.
    I've never been on a proper date and as cheesy and 'American' as it may seem I would love to actually be asked out on one!

    Go somewhere else and care on your own then instead of making a really boring thread.

    Why did you read the thread, let alone bother replying, if it was so 'boring'? Haven't you got anything better to do?

    I am not tired, so no not really. Just an amusing thread - is that an actual question that you actually care about? Surely you know how meeting girls works, and as we are in the UK we don't really use the term 'date', which you must also know - so I refer you back to post 2.

    I went on one last night and the night before. I was asked to the cinema on Saturday night and we went to see Scott Pilgrim which was total rubbish. Last night we went to a Latin dance party!! Last Tuesday I was asked out by a different guy who took me to see Resident Evil! It was wicked because it was the first time I'd seen something in 3D. Yes, I still go on dates.

    Wel duh, of course I know how meeting girls works etc....but I just don't see many people using the term 'date' over here in the UK. Just seems to be more of an American thing you see on tv or something. Who in the UK actually says 'do you want to go out on a date?'. That isn't a very 'British' thing at all.

    I go on dates with boyfriends. I don't do the whole "first date, get to know each other" thing.

    Yeah but did anything happen? Did you **** them? Kiss them? Or was it a case of 'the guy likes me', but I just want to be friends, I didn't kiss him or have sex with him at the end of the night?

    I think cinema dates are the WORST kind of dates because you can't talk and get to know each other. I can't believe that people actually think 'taking a girl to the cinema' is a good date or that it will get them laid. Are people that brainwashed that they think the cinema is a good place for a date?

    :facepalm: That was my ******* point - the last time people here went on a date was never because we are in Britain. ****

    So if you were single, how would you get to know somebody if you don't do the whole "first date, get to know each other" thing? You've contradicted yourself there! You can't get to know someone if you 'refuse to go on a date and get to know them'.

    I got to know my boyfriend over the internet. We'd meet up in between classes for lunch or whatever, but it was never dress up, nervous, flowers, date stuff. That was our first date as a couple.
