What Not to say/do on a date Part 5

Incase you've missed any of the previous "What Not to say/do on a date", you can check them out here.
For this installment you'll need to think back to the year 2002. That year, the movie 8 Mile came out in theaters featuring the life story of Eminem. I did not see it that year and probably for good reason. However, it would haunt me later. Now flash forward 3 years forward....2005.

I had just begun my final fall semester of college. I was on a 2nd date/hang out. I had invited the guy over to my apartment to hang out and watch a movie. We'd been friends for awhile and things were starting to transition over to a more bf/gf vibe. At this point, the most we'd ever done was hold hands or hug. So I figured with this being our 2nd official hang out/date that I'd get a first kiss. 

He came over for the date and somehow we ended up watching the movie 8 Mile. The next 2 hours, we sat there watching the gritty streets of Detroit, men fighting, rapping, doing drugs and being poor. He never made a move. Let me go on the record now as to say that 8 Mile could possibly be the worst movie ever if you're hoping to get a first kiss during or after. So moms or future moms out there.....don't want your son or daughter making out during a movie date? Pop in 8 Mile. It'll do the trick.

8 Mile was a classic crap moving from high school, and I can't say that I ever wanted to watch it again .... let alone on a date. You need The Notebook for that :)

NOTED! That movie did suck, a lot. Ahh, the days of making out during a movie. Just wait till you're married -- then movies are just movies. :)

LOL - when I was hoping to get a move made on me, I watched Saw with a guy. That way I could cuddle with him under the blankets. Talk about an inappropriate movie!

Ashley said...

Oh girl, I can't believe he didn't try to kiss you. I have never seen that movie and probably never will, what a poor choice by him!! You make me laugh, maybe next time things will be different!
