On our first date, we had tacos and margaritas at a local mexician restaurant.
I knew I was going to like this guy from the second he ordered guacamole without asking.
On first dates, I always wonder to myself silently “what does this guy’s house look like..”. Sometimes, I am able to predict it pretty much anything! It is funny that there are so many different types of furniture styles. Some people buy cheap furniture that won’t last longer than their lease, and some people keep old, but sturdy, pieces of cherrywood furniture until they meet a girl, like me, who insists on upgrading or refurbishing. The first time I stepped foot in my boyfriend’s house, I saw it. The sofa that had been passed down from family member to family member. The sofa looked comfortable which is the first sign that it probably smells bad. There were no throw pillows, and the coffee table was made from that awful plasterboard. The coffee table was falling apart, and part of me thought that if I placed my glass of wine on it, it might collapse right in front of my eyes. Of course, I did not say any of this while I was at his house for the first time. I simply went home and admired my custom made coffee table and refurbished bookshelf that I sanded myself. A year later when we moved in together, I told him that the coffee table had to go. I was surprised it even lasted that long! As for the sofa, it is now in the man-cave. I had to explain to him that just because a piece of furniture was comfortable, did not mean that it was acceptable to keep for 20 years.
