Ten on Tuesday

This week's 10-on-Tuesday is about "dating". My "dating" history differs from some, for my I met my husband when I was 19 years old. So that was the last time I went on a "first date"! But, here it goes!

1. What is your ideal best date?

It completely depends on my mood! Since we don't go out a lot, thought, I would have to say going out to our favorite sushi restaraunt - and finishing off the evening by taking a nice walk.

However, there are days where my ideals date consists of going for a long-afternoon-hike, coming home, grilling out in the back yard with a cold beer, and starting a fire. (and roasting marshmallows is a must)
2. How long does it take you to get ready to go on a date?
Well from shower to out the door -- probably an hour. If clothes didn't matter, it'd be 30. But I usually spend an excessively, unnatural amount of time trying on numerous outfits.
3. What would you wear on the date?
Depends on where we are going -- right now I'd say a sundress.

4. If you are married, how often do you go on dates?
Probably once every 2 weeks? It kind of depends.
5. What was your worst date?
One time Ryan & I went on a "golfing date"....(this was before we were married) And he was trying to nicely instruct me and offer advice on how I could better hit the hall and make it go further than 5 feet in front of me (I was struggling)

Stubborn-Abby didn't like being told how to hit the ball.

To make a Long story short.....my unneccessary stubborn-attitude ended up with us parking the golf cart after 8 holes (instead of 18). We decided to hit up the range before I go on the course again.

I have since improved ;)

6. Do you/Did you kiss on your first date?
I did kiss my husband on my 1st date. He was even polite enough to ask :)

7. If married, how long before you knew he/she was the one? If single, how long before you know if the person is marriage material?

It was definitely when we moved to Tucson that I knew for sure he was the one. I had left all my family and friends, moved across the country to this practically unknown-- and I was still happy to be with him!

Also, I knew things would work since we survived 4 days in a U-Haul truck, without one argument.

8. Do you prefer day dates or night dates?
Night dates. Unless we're at the beach. But, there's not beaches in Tucson....
9. How old were you when you first were allowed to date?
Probably 16?
10. What is the most embarassing moment you have had on a date?
I was at a restaurant, and I chose this sauce for my stir-fry (or whatever it was) that I was advised "That pepper sauce is extremely spicy"
However, I'm stubborn...so used it anyways.
It was so freaking hot, that I almost couldn't breath. My nose started running profusely, I had to leave the table and go blow my nose. I was absolutely miserable. And looked like a complete fool.

Ha, love the pepper sauce story. I can see myself doing that. :)

Yep, if you spent 4 days in a uhaul, driving across the country, and didn't get into any fights, that was def a great litmus test for the relationship. :)

I knew he was the one that weekend when we were at the cabin in January. I just saw something special between you two.

The pepper story is too funny! I remember my first date with your dad! We were at a school dance and I was having a glass of 7-up at the concession stand and it somehow backed up my throat and squirted out my nose! I wanted to die! How did he ever stay with me?
