Dating Diaries: Britney and Jake

Dating Diaries: Roslyn and Brad

This copy is for your personal non-commercial use only. Jake was all GQ-handsome and single to boot. But he forgot to mention one small thing. When I got engaged, I thought it was safe to assume that my days of horrible first dates were over. So, like any hopelessly romantic girl in Toronto, I sat in my apartment creating a profile. Jake messaged me immediately.

The boy in the picture was hot. I scrolled through his profile looking for danger signs. He had a job and a kind of sweet way about him. He described how his family was really important to him. I was practically doodling our names with hearts around them already. I sent back a message complete with a little kissy face emoji.

A few minutes later, he messaged back. After a few hours, I gave him my number. He called and, after a while, he was singing me to sleep. I was pinching myself the whole time. We talked again the next day. Jake seemed to think everything I said was wonderful and hilarious and we seemed to have a pretty great connection. I picked out a sexy outfit for the date. When we met, I had really strong butterflies in my stomach. Jake was tall and GQ-handsome. He seemed a bit nervous, but there was an instant spark.

We both sort of stumbled over our first questions because we kept talking at the same time. While we were skating, he held my hand, and at one point he held me close so I would be steady. After skating, we held hands and walked to a cafe to get coffee. Jake paid for the coffees and I asked myself how it was that dating diaries toronto star may was still single.

We walked from the cafe dating diaries toronto star may a parking lot, holding hands and kissing and cuddling a bit. I figured his car must be in the shop and, to avoid a long ride on public transit, he had called a friend to drive us home. As we approached the car, I realized the driver was an older lady. I must have been turning red when she said hello to me. I was so embarrassed. I got in the back seat and Jake got in beside me. His mom smiled at us in the rearview mirror.

Even though she seemed really nice, it was so awkward, and I felt bad for her. When I got out in front of my place, she rolled down her window and said she hoped to see me soon.
