Background: About a year ago, I was really freaking fat. Had been all life. No self esteem, etc. Got serious about losing weight. Look relatively normal. I'm 24 and have next to no dating experience. I previously dated a close friend for 4 months -- that's the extent of my dating experience. Foreground: Asked a girl out (we had met socially a few times -- at first I didn't like her, but she grew on me) and she said yes. In my super-creativeness, I decided to do the movie & dinner thing. Went to the movie, about ten minutes in I decided "what the hell" and went ahead and put my arm around her. We ended up cuddling with a little like touching (nothing really sexual, just generic touch-things like rubbing fingertips on palms/forearms/knees/etc). [We were also the annoying people in the theater who whispered smart-ass comments to each other, but we tried not to disturb the other 4 folks in the theater] Went to dinner, she talked quite a bit and we seemed to really hit it off. There wasn't much touching at dinner (across a table), but I noticed her pupils were dilated (if that matters). We continued talking all the way back to her dorm (I drove -- live in an apartment) and dropped her off. She leaned across the car and gave me a big hug and said she had a great time and a few other things. --the end-- The Question: Rate the date, please comment, give advice, etc. Me == n00b at life. No cliffs available at this time.
