Drawn - First dates 01

I don't profess to know much about first dates. I've only been on one.

Truth is, I met my husband when we were students at Cambridge and we were friends for eight months before we started going out with each other. As friends, we went on a geology field trip to Arran, in Scotland, and had such a wonderful week that from then on we were almost inseparable, even though it took another couple of months to actually decide that we liked each other in that way. During those two months, I went on a couple of dates with another chap - a ginger-haired, 6'5, half-Spaniard from Girton College. It didn't last long. And that was it.

I do know, however, that it's not very polite to lunge at someone with your tongue out. This is my new theme: first dates.


  1. Its also not very good if someone walks into a tree and then feels so embarrassed they start regaling you with the story of when they were arrested.

    It picked up after that though when a tramp said we looked cute together eating our pasta salads from tesco metro.

    The romance :)

  2. hehe. That's funny and sweet. Pasta salad... x

  3. These are HILARIOUS! Seriously just made my morning. Found it via the Cup of Jo post you commented about deal breaker dates. My favorite is the nervous confessor.

  4. :-D Thanks Audrey! I'm always so pleased to make people laugh. I will draw more soon, I hope. I've been terribly busy with work, but if you come by every now and then there may be more in this series. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog x
