    I am super nervous b/c we have not really spoken on the phone that much at all. We are going to a restaurant that usually has a good little wait to be seated, so I guess that we can talk some then. I am very shy so doing this is REALLY stepping out for me. Any last minute suggestions?

    I've done my fair share (and probably yours) of blind dating. Do you know anyone who works at the restaurant? If so, make sure he or she keeps an eye on your progress. Otherwise, make sure your neckline isn't eye popping and remember that he is probably as uncomfortable as you are... so you should both moderate your drinking!

    I met my husband on a blind date!! The wait for seating will give you a good opportunity to talk a bit...just have fun...don't do all the talking, ask some questions to get him to open up but don't seem like you are 'prying'...keep it on 'casual' kind of topics to begin with and see where it goes...

    great "neckline" tip CatnFiddle:D
    Also, let someone know where you will be; are you two meeting at the restaurant??

    Maybe you can have "mom?" call you just to check up on you; let the guy know that it's important that you speak for a moment and keep it brief. If you're uncomfortable about anything at all; remember...you don't have to be there.
    Be safe and check in with us here! I'm sure you two will have a good time.
    :hugs:
    The "mom" in me is giving you tips. Sorry.

    I like what someone said about have fun and remember, you don't have to be there. So true...you can always leave if it's a bad date.

    I had a nice time. He picked me up we went for dinner and were planning on going to the movie theater, but we missed the 7:00 show and the next one was not until 10:30, so we decided to rent a movie and watch it at his place. He sat close but it did not make me feel uncomfortable. He was very nice kept asking if I was okay or if I needed anything. He kept looking over at me ( I have awesome peripheral vision ;) ). Which made me feel weird I guess its b/c I have zero self confidence. He has a little vegetable garden in his backyard and he wants me to come this week while he his away and get some veggies. He took me home around 11:30, he has to catch a flight today to go to Texas for his job, so I told him to give me a call when he gets back. I gave him a hug, I dont kiss on the first date:p. He kissed me check and that was the night. I think it went well, I hope he likes me.

    P.S.
    He works for a company that sells supplies to my mom's hospital she is the one who told him about me...... so I hope he is not just being nice b/c he knows my mom.

    Sounds like a great first date!
    He isn't being nice because he knows your mom! He's being nice because he enjoyed you.

    Sounds very promising. He wouldn't have passed off his hard-work to grow his veggies on just anyone. Trust me! I think he was probably looking at you to validate his good luck on a great blind date! Plus it sounds like he truely wanted to make sure you were okay and comfortable. Did he let you pick the movie?

    I was out all day yesterday, so I'm just seeing this thread.

    That sounded like a nice date: Casual, non-intimidating environment, etc.

    Hopefully this is the start of something really nice! :)

    Wonderful! Sounds like a good guy!
    You were brave to go to his place on a first date. I don't know if I would do that but I guess you knew your mom knew him.
    Glad it all went well.

    quick questions ladies--I was thinking of emailing him since he works from his blackberry and laptop all the time and just saying something like----"Thanks again for dinner, I hope you arrived safely in Texas. Enjoy your trip.

    yay or nay?

    Yay. It's nice to thank him for dinner. It lets him know you appreciate it. And it will make him think of you when he's on his trip. Do it! :thumb:

    Go ahead and thank him for a good time, but just once. Don't keep texting/e-mailing him. Make him want to come home and see you again.
