WHAT WOWS YOU ON A FIRST DATE? 😻

Experimenting with the new open list feature. What kinds of things, when they happen on a first date, are encouraging, turn-ons (not just sexually), or indicate potential chemistry?

  6. Pulling out my chair. Opening doors. Proving chivalry is not dead.
    Suggested by   @MissBicks
  7. A penchant for conspiratorial adventure - like sneaking onto a hotel roof, or telling the bartender that you are traveling puppeteers.

  8. Beating me at Scrabble.

  9. Listening to me and being interested in things I have to say. Real panty dropper.

  10. Slightly embarrassing yourself and being okay with it. Nothing too scarring though, this is a first date after all. This is just a sample of the more legendary embarrassment to come.

  11. When people are brutally honest. You used to be 200 lbs heavier and lost it all w/o surgery? Cool. You're 7 yrs sober from cocaine, booze and klonopin? Congrats (and congrats on still being alive; that's one hell of a combo). Both your parents are in jail? Fuck, man. Those are all real things dates have told me and it wows me how open people can be

  12. Quoting Robyn within 3 minutes of us meeting
    This just happened and was awesome!

  13. Any type of dancing and if you spin me... you are IN.
    Points if the dancing is very terrible but COMMITTED to fun.

  14. Having a plan.
    Sounds so simple, right? But it happens so infrequently, that when a person has thought ahead and has an actual plan, and doesn't turn to you and say "I dunno, what do you want to do next?" It's really awesome. But then again, I'm a grownup. If you'd asked me this 10 years ago I'd have said emotional unavailability and some drugs.
