The great thing about being friends with alternative types is that many of them don’t have Facebook, or seldom check it. Yes, I guess this is me confessing I may have bent the rules slightly with Date #1. We’ve hung out in a group before, and well I knew I could rely on him to ease myself into the challenge.

On the whole, it was a rather pleasant experience which ended with his ordering of a strawberry milkshake (real men drink pink drinks, right?!) and trying to convince me that sitting the rain would be fun.

Right, I’ve dipped my toes in. Now it’s time to take the plunge.
