Some girls collect shoes...

I collect first dates.

I realized this week that I am a serial date and dasher--the build up to the actual date can last from just a couple of weeks to almost six months, but once the bachelor of the hour has dropped me off, dollars to donuts I won't hear from him again. Usually, I'm not bothered by this fact, because a) I am no longer interested and b) I have already turned our bland evening into an amusing anecdote to bust out at various social gatherings. Over the years, I've amassed quite a collection, and figured it was high time that I wrote them down for posterity so that down through the generations, others can chuckle at my ineptitude and my gentlemen caller's zany behavior and choice of conversation (and rant) topics.

Enjoy :)
