Yes I have. With the very same teacher who had sex with me while reciting Shakespeare in my dream when I was a high school Sophomore. I liked him enough to challenge him when I didn’t agree with him. He respected that about me.

I turn the key in the ignition and little hamsters start running for their lives in a big wheel. Right?

The voices in my head do that for me. (Tug’s answer preserved.

It depends how well I know the person ahead of the date. In my pre-marriage life I tended to become friends with people before I actually dated them. I don’t have a hard and fast rule on this. And if I’m being completely honest, it depends how much electricity I feel the moment I meet the person.

Yes, this past winter. It was the dullest thing I’ve pretty much ever been to. Luckily, it was at a bar so I went over to the live performance side and watched the band play.
