Dear LiveJournal,

Today I had my third date with a boy. He is smart and nice and while not drop-dead handsome, is at least not unpleasing to look at. We have exchanged a total of two (2) awkward hugs and zero additional physical touches. Body language is not completely "hands off!" but is also not particularly open and welcoming. By the standards of the first two boys I've kissed, I'm about... three dates behind on the kissing front.

So... now what? Do I need to make a move? If so, how do I do it? I have, in the past, always had the moves put on me.

(also, if this means he's a bottom, things are *not* going to work out. sigh.)



In other news, the movie we went to see on our date was Watchmen (to quote one of my straight male friends: "man, it's gotta be so easy when two guys pick a date movie -- you don't have to go see chick flicks!") and, well. I think I need to read the graphic novel to get the full gist of it, but holy shit was that violent. Like, really, really, *really* violent. Maybe when I read it I'll "get" that as well, but it just seemed like overkill (pun intended).

Anywho, I don't think I know well enough to say whether any one person would like it, but the fandom-obsessed on my flist probably will anyway :)

ooooh, watchmen.

i wonder who else might have gone to see that this weekend. last night, even.

the five members of the BAC who IMAX'd it up last night had a great time and enjoyed the movie immensely, even me, who hadn't read the graphic novel. also, we had an adorbs interracial gay couple in front of us and a guy that i kept amused during the ads to my left, so it was all in all a good movie experience.

but YAY THIRD DATE!!! ...oh, honey, i do think you should make a movie but if he's a bottom...

I know! I totes should have written back to that thread, but the whole "are we or aren't we having a date this weekend?" question was up in the air :-/ Next time I will err on the side of caution and go with y'all. I am actually kind of glad that I didn't see it on IMAX, though -- when I saw The Dark Knight on IMAX, I spent most of the movie moving my head left and right like a typewriter :-|

I KNOW, RIGHT. Eat my shorts, universe.

I got no advice at all on the dating front, but I am amused by the statement of the straight male friend. I have always hated chick flicks, so this was never an issue with me and anyone I dated.

I think I'm going to pass on WATCHMEN. It's just not sounding like my kind of movie.

I'm the girl who who has no issue making out on a first date...I think that comes from a lot of my first serious kissing coming in Ireland where making out if you accepted a dance was expected.

I've absolutely no place offering advice on dating, as it's been centuries since my last one, but if you're interested, go ahead and make a move. though, at some point before things get (more) serious, y'all probably should have that "so, are you a bottom?" conversation, just so you know where things stand.
