First Date in Six Words


Posted by Michele Olson
It’s six words or less time again! Reader’s Digest challenged readers to describe their first date in six words or less. Here are some of the results…

"Broke leg on future husband's motorcycle!"
"Oh my. What was I thinking?"
"Disaster, I should have known then!"
"Next time don't order the spaghetti."
"Blind date. Too bad I wasn't."
"Full of butterflies but so amazing."

Now it’s your turn! Maybe your first date was recently…or maybe it was years ago. Whatever the case, have some fun and share with our blog readers. A good reminder that thinkmarriage.org is also here for single, seriously dating and engaged people too. We have workshops like How to Avoid Marrying a Jerk or Jerkette and Within My Reach…as well as great pre-marital inventories. Relationship Coaching is also available online. Let us know how we can be an asset to your relationship journey.
Now…what are your six words?

I told you! He's the one...

I knew right away Allen was it! Called my best friend and said... Guess what!?!?!? I just went on my first date with my future husband. So, on my wedding date, I said:
" I told you! He's the one!"

"Ended with sweet card and kiss"

Our first date 9 years and one month ago TODAY was at a mexican restaurant across the street from the Best Buy where we met. I was so surprised that he handed me a card after walking me to my car. After I read the card, he leaned in a kissed me. I knew my single days were numbered.

"Nice guy, weird Jesus thing."

Only 5 words.

It was a blind date, and he was pleasant and obviously kind-hearted. But at the end he talked about Jesus and I thought he was a bit strange.

That was 21 years ago!

Susan,
How about adding the word "A" in front to get the six words! :)
The sentiment still works in five words too!
Thanks for blogging.
