    Well gentlemen, if you knew of a young boy that was going out on his first date. Let's just say he's 12, then what advice would you give him about his first date?  please discuss.  by the way, this has nothing to do with me or anyone that i know. i just like reading your posts, as i do get a kick out of them, as most of you probably know about me by now. big_smile

      Be kind and courteous.  Do not appear too eager.  Wait for your date and do not rush her.

      I am not a gentleman, but I always appreciate one.

      The young boy needs guidance from his mother or another older female figure. Let him listen to her. She will tell him what the young lady would like and thus how he should behave. You gentlemen can counsel him on other things. smile

      Employ all that you have been taught,  dress well but not overstated, nothing too flashy, whatever is appropriate for the activity. Do not wear too much cologne women hate that ! Open doors, pull out her chair, stand if she leaves the room and when she returns.  Help her on and of with her coat. If you are dining out ask her if she would like for you to order for her . Let her make that decision. Compliment her. Regardless of what she may be used to she will be impressed. Women want to be treated with respect and finally, if the conversation lags, let it. Don't speak, unless you have something pertinent to say. Mystery is a powerful tool and she will be wondering waht your thinking and as Mark Twain once said, "Its better to be thought a fool thatn to open ones mouth and remove all doubt"

      Best anser I can share is be yourself no matter who you are be yourself and allow her to feel confortable being herself.

    I would tell him to be respectful and think before he speaks or acts because every thing he does and utters will be broadcast to his dates ring of friends shortly after the date is over.

    12 is a little young for an unescorted date anyway at least it is here in and around Chicago.

    I think 12 is a bit young for dating, period.  Plenty of time for that once they have refined their non-romantic social skills for a few more years.

    I would say, move over pal, Mama's drivin'.  LOL  Actually, 12 is a great time for group parties and learning about what makes girls giggle, learning how to dance, if kids still do that, and just learnng period.

    Supervised get togethers, bar-b-ques, and social games should be a perfect way to enjoy the company of girls.  Hopefully the boy's parents would want to be involved, but not bossy.

    Have some good ol clean fun!  It's time!

    Always be polite, courteous and respectful, not only to your date but everyone you encounter.

    Dress appropriately for the venue of your outing.

    Never let your date talk you into doing anything you are not supposed to do. 

    Forget the bros before hoes crap, never take a first date anywhere near your friends.

    Be sure you have plenty of pocket money.

    Always make sure your date gets home safely and on time, whether the date works out or not. Ultimately, especially in her father’s eyes, you are responsible for her.

    Be a gentleman, but don't be a 'nice guy', the world is full of these limp wristed metro males that women can control and manipulate easy - they soon get be bored with them as they are not challenge and dump them.

    You want to be a gentleman with an air of mystery about you.  Never answer their questions with a straight answer as they are busy ticking of their check lists and profile building.  If they ask where do you live say "in your grandmother's basement' and the compulsory job question- you model men's underwear or  a trainee burger flipper at Mcdonalds...

    Don't be easy, make them chase you.  Be prepared to walk away at any moment as there are far more fish in the sea, and don't look desperate ever.  Walk tall with confidence (pretend you are a Hollywood film star if that does it for you).  You are somebody and you are going places.

    Always bring and use your own condoms, never let her put them on for you, and if she makes excuses and wants to do it 'bareback', you get up straight away and walk (or run) away as fast as possible.. wink

    My friend's son is 12. He took his date to the mall and bought her a present. I believe a bear.
    The girl broke up with him. They got back together. She got another present at "The Mall." Hmmmm 12 year old girls working it for presents.
    The girl dumped him on facebook again changing her relationship status to single.
    Wow, dating is harsh in the social www times.
