My friend and I were talking tonight about a rule I have about first dates. It is that I have to drive my own car and meet the guy wherever it is that we are going. She thinks it's weird and backwards. I just think its better. What if the guy and I don't really kick it off and there's no chemistry, I'd like to avoid that awkward ride home. Or, what if he's a total creeper and I just feel uncomfortable--I don't want to feel like im stuck in his car or have him be able to know where my son and I live. She thinks a guy would take offense to me thinking he might be psycho stalker.
What do you think? Is that a weird rule? Anyone have (had) that rule too? After the first or second date, if it gets to that point, then I usually let him pick me up from my house.
(And it's not as easy as one would think to just call up a cab where I live.)
