You guys, I’ll be the first to say that when it comes to first dates, I will never, ever know what I’m doing. I’m a generally awkward person, I’m terrified of everything, and just when I think I have something down, I do something dumb to screw it up. Honestly, it’s a miracle I’ve made it this far in life.
So when it comes to decoding common first date lines to try to figure out what the hell my date is saying to me, I’m 100 percent a lost cause. You’re probably wondering, Why can’t we just say what we mean in the first place?? Because we’re a generation racked with a crippling fear of rejection and judgment, that’s why!
But don’t worry. If you, like me, are fumbling around in the dark when it comes tofinding someone who wants to hang out with you, maybe doesn’t want you to die, and wants to kiss you sometimes, the people of Twitter are here to rescue you.
Withthe hashtag #DecodeFirstDateSentences, Twitter users decoded some of the most common lines you’ll hear on a first date. And I’ve gotta say, these are, like, scarily accurate. It’s almost like everyone has been deceived on a first date by someone who was likely terrified of rejection and judgment! Weird!
Here are all of your common first date lines decoded, so you never have to wonder what your date is telling you again.
