Dating 101: A rather uninteresting meme

Yeah yeah, it's another meme. If you don't know how I feel about memes, read this. However since I was tagged by Miss Elle who's a kick-ass blogger, so I really can't help doing it (or risk a kick in the ass). So let's just get it over with, shall we?

1. When was your first kiss and where?
Hmm... I'll take the bait and answer this honestly. I was 8 years old and this happened at my tutor's house. One of my co-tutee stole a kiss on my cheeks. Apparently, she found me cute, even had a cheek pinch before the kiss. She's a year older if I'm not mistaken, and I actually had a crush on her then. I chanced upon her a few years ago and she remained cute... too bad she doesn't remember me.

2. When was your first real relationship and how long did it last?
Never had one. Yeah yeah, I'm such a loser. I probably should go and buy this cap.

3. What age were you allowed to date?
Err... funny this should be asked. I was never disallowed, of course I never did ask permission so I wouldn't know if I wasn't allowed to date then. Highly unlikely though so long as I don't ask for date money.

4. What's the craziest thing you did (for love) when you were a teenager?
That right there might be my biggest problem--I was never crazy enough to fall in love.

5. How long is your longest relationship and what's the secret?
Refer to no. 2.

6. How long did you date before you decided to settle down?
Permit me to change "did" with "will" and you got a question. A question I unfortunately have no answer for.

7. How long did you know he was the ONE?
I hope to God I never ever end up thinking of a he, any he for that matter, as the one.

8. Now, at what age will you allow your kid(s) to date? (if and only if I end up having kids)
For my boys, when they can show me that they're responsible enough to pay for their dates.
For my girls, when they can show me that they've met someone responsible enough to meet me in person and ask permission.
This question of course assumes that they actually ask permission which doesn't happen anymore these days now does it?

9. When it comes to your kids dating, will you be a cool parent or a strict parent?
I'd like to think I'd be a cool dad, but I'm liable to be strict. We'll see.

10. What piece of advice can you give to your child when they start dating?
Ask your mom.

Seeing as I rather dislike memes, I'm not going to impose this one on anyone else. I'm tagging the following person but only if they so choose to do the meme, feel free to decline via the comment section. So Cams, Aline, Little Light, Prinsesa Musang and her Neuroticsister, consider yourselves tagged albeit rather loosely.

If you've read this far, permit me to thank you for wasting your time with me.

Your response to #8: For my boys, when they can show me that they're responsible enough to pay for their dates.

Paying for dates... is that a euphemism for prostitution? :-P

Seriously though, what century are you living in? Boys pay for everything and girls need more supervision than boys? Very modern thinking :-P

I thought your first kiss was rather sweet :)

My parents never told me when I could or could not date either. So I just did it behind their backs. I know. Shame. Shame.

you were never crazy enough to fall in love?

@JC: I never said boys need to pay for everything and that girls need more supervision... where the heck did I say that? What I actually tried to say is that no son of mine will be a leech. If they have no means to go out on a date, they stay home. As for my daughter, I just want to make sure whoever dates her knows that I'll pound him if he ever tries anything improper.

@cams: Haha... Looking forward to the end of the week then :p

@momisodes: Hehe... :p

@PM: Err... sorry, not fall in love, I meant to be in a relationship.. cool, thanks for doing this, and so quick too! :)

Miss Elle said...

philos! you did it... you really did... cant believe it coz i thought you weren't really the type who'd bother yourself with this one. :p

I can't help but smile with your answers. esp Number 7! and giggle. LOL. your first kiss moment is just soo cute. who knows philos? :)

so you were never crazy enough to be in a relationship? Good for you. I wonder though, when will that loyal sanity of yours betray you? :)

I love that advice, by the way. :p
