I don’t think there’s a date minimum or maximum. I don’t get the whole ‘All right, you’ve got to wait three days to call after the date.’ If I got a number from a girl, I’d call that night. There’s no science to it for me. You just do what it is that you feel like doing.

There’s nothing wrong with taking yourself out of the dating pool. You don’t need to be in a relationship because that’s what society expects of you or because your grandmother thinks you need to be married by a certain date. Those days are over. Instead, take a step back and say, ‘I’m OK alone.’
Whitney Wolfe Herd

I was married for like seven, eight years. And then coming out of that I was like, ‘Okay, now what? I guess I would like to date? That’s a reasonable thing. I’m allowed to have that!’
Laura Jane Grace
I think opera has gained a kind of glamorous appeal. It’s a live performance that aligns all of the arts, and when it is represented in the media, in film in particular, it is presented as something that is really a special event, whether it’s a great date or something that’s just hugely romantic.
On behalf of the federal government, I wish now publicly to appeal to the provinces to lend their co-operation in furthering our country’s war effort by effecting at as early a date as may be possible this much needed restriction.

Everything about a date is weird, especially if it’s a new person you don’t really know. You want to take them somewhere you think they’re going to like, but you don’t want to ask that question because you want to look like you’re in control of the situation. So I think dates are just weird in general.

Tinder makes it obvious that I’m not alone in being single and that there are plenty of single parents looking for a partner.

I took a job at a factory in New Jersey to try to save money to go to Europe. When I took the job, I set a date for quitting. I was going to hitchhike around, be a hippie, see the world. I just wanted to be responsible long enough to get up the money to get there and trip around.
Someone very important once told me, ‘You can make almost everything look great.’ That’s the best compliment I have received till date.
I enjoy dating. I love first dates. I think they’re incredibly fascinating studies in human psychology.

You have to put the best foot forward.
If you’ve got the body and the chutzpah, a pencil skirt is so sexy on older women. Look for ones that fall just below the knee. Think 1940s, cinched-in jackets – imagine you are Lauren Bacall on a date with Humphrey Bogart and you just absolutely have to wear very high heels.
What you need is one black dress I call Plan B. It doesn’t have to be fabulous, it just looks good, covers up the problems and is neutral enough for dinner, business, a date, a funeral. You don’t overwear it, you don’t overwash it, because the Plan B is – gold.

Shooting’s not actually a bad place to take a girl on a date, unbelievably.

The over-all point is that new technology will not necessarily replace old technology, but it will date it. By definition. Eventually, it will replace it.

If you’re a retailer and know that once a year you’re going to get Mary Higgins Clark’s book on a given date, you’re going to have an awful lot of copies out there in time for that. You’d have to be simple-minded not to do that – although bookselling prior to 1950 never made that connection.
I have a lot of watches that need to be kept wound, so if I take two of them on a trip, there’s always one sitting around. And if it sits around for a day, then it’ll stop working. And then you have to reset the time and date, which is annoying.

I grew up as a very sarcastic person. I was always the class clown, and to date girls, I had to be really funny. I was really skinny growing up. I was so thin, I had to run around in the shower to get wet. That kind of thin. So I always had to rely on humor and sarcasm.
My husband’s idea of a date night somehow always involves me looking at one of his development sites.

I want to make sure there are no gatekeepers at the AG’s door, and that anybody in the Department – they may have to come relatively late in the evening, just judging by the schedules to date – but if somebody has suggestions for how to make this a better department, that they know I am available.
I date, but the person I date most is myself, unfortunately.

Michael J. Knowles
When you’re young, you think that clothes are almost magical, and that if you wear the right thing – to school, to the prom, on the date, etc. – something’s going to happen. Black, it’s the anti-magical thing. It comes from the recognition that it is not going to be ‘the’ dress.
I always play women I would date.
These days I travel so much it’s hard to get into a routine. When I’m on the road, I tend to use hotel gyms. When I’m home in L.A., I like to hike and hit the surf. All in all, I try to keep a balanced diet and exercise routine, which has stood me in good stead to date.

I once stole a book. It was really just the once, and at the time I called it borrowing. It was 1970, and the book, I could see by its lack of date stamps, had been lying unappreciated on the shelves of my convent school library since its publication in 1945.

Sometimes our date nights are just spontaneous.
I have always been interested in how strange it is, when you date someone and break up, and then you both move on and continue your lives. What do you owe them, if anything, for that time intimate time spent together? What does that time mean, if anything?
My niece was very much caught up in the vampire craze for young adults, and she thought having a vampire boyfriend would be a cool thing. What do you do on a first date? The more I thought about it, the more fun I had imagining what you’d serve a vampire for dinner.
I know this is silly, it’s shallow, it’s bad, I wish I wasn’t this way-but if I meet a girl with no teeth, I just don’t want to date her. It’s creepy of me, I wish I was a bigger person, but that’s my real turn-off.
My dream date is a tall, dark, handsome, blue eyed man with a bubble butt who will whisk me away to Paris in a hot air balloon to wine me, dine me and.
I’m normally a burger and chips girl – such a cheap date.
Because my career has been based so much on my looks, when I finally pass my ‘sell-by’ date, I think I’ll probably pack it in. Unless I make the changeover into playing witches or something, I don’t see what career I can have.
Working with new people can be really hard and nerve-wracking. When you don’t know the person, it’s like being on a blind date.
I have laughter dates with myself, where I find comics on YouTube and watch them. Louis C.K. was my first laughter date a couple years ago. I’ll also watch those videos of people doing idiotic things. That cracks me up.
As far as the men who are running for president are concerned, they aren’t even people I would date.
I don’t want to date. But I do have dreams about a great love.
Sophie B. Hawkins

To me, if you’re trying to impress a girl, get a date, they’re gonna like that more because you’re a confident guy. That’s what it comes down to.

No, I mean, I most certainly date and go out.
Extradition treaties date back at least to 1259 B.C., when the Hittite King Hattusili the Third and Ramesses the Second signed a treaty of ‘peace and brotherhood for all time.’ They have become more commonplace as international travel has become easier and sensibly streamlined.
I didnt go to the high school prom. Couldn’t get a date.
I enjoy getting gussied up for an event or date night.

When I first came to Hollywood I was told to go out with an agent because it was good for my career. So I went to a party with him because it was good for my ‘career.’ Well, he thought the whole thing was a big date. Needless to say, I was very upset.
If we lost, then who won? Did Al Qaida win? When on the floor of the House of Representatives they cheer – they cheer – when they pass a withdrawal motion that is a certain date for surrender, what were they cheering? Surrender? Defeat?
The stories about epidemics that are told in the American press – their plots and tropes – date to the nineteen-twenties, when modern research science, science journalism, and science fiction were born.

So soon as a fashion is universal, it is out of date.
Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
I say ‘date potential.’ The reason why is no matter who you date, anyway, five years from now, you’re going to be different, and he’s going to be different. The key is to really find somebody that you can grow with that you can change with, evolve with and that you can be partners with.
We should get used to the idea that we’ll probably never be able to find – and confirm – a good explanation of the ultimate origin of the universe, though I see no reason to believe that we can’t press much further on this question than we have managed to date.
‘Machine’ was one of the biggest decisions I have taken in my life – it was the best narration till date. It is a typical Abbas-Mustan thriller.
I met my husband, Will Smith, when I was 19 and auditioned to be his date on ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.’ They said I was too short to play the part.
Jada Pinkett Smith
It will soon be 25 years from the date of publication of my first research work. That the scientific aspirations kindled by that early work did not suffer extinction has been due entirely to the opportunities provided for me by the great city of Calcutta.
C. V. Raman
In Michigan, in the mid-’80s, the unemployment rate goes way up because a lot of factories shut down. And then, the mid-2000s, to pick a date, the unemployment rate in Michigan isn’t that much higher than in the rest of the country. But the main way that happened is people moved.
To date, every American citizen has nearly $27,000 in public debt riding on our backs.
I’ve written everywhere – in hotel rooms, cafes, airports, and planes all around the world. Now I have a home office, and the wi-fi is really bad down there, which is great. If I make a date with myself to write from, say, 6 A.M. to 10 A.M. on a Saturday, the fact that no emails come in helps me focus.
Zoe Foster Blake
Even the largest of my dreams and ambitions, I realize with increasing dismay, were puny, measly, compared to the object of my dreaming. I would not say my life to date has been built overmuch of compromise, but still, it surrounds me.
I also like men who like dogs. I couldn’t date a man who doesn’t like my dog.
In my mind, I’ve always checked out in 2037; that’s always been my expiration date. I’ll be 75.
Elizabeth Taylor taught me that if you do your hair and makeup first then take a hot bath right before you leave, it brings out your inner glow and takes away the powdery look from makeup. I do that right before every date.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
The process of a date, I think, is terrible. Horrible. Because everything is banal and predicted.
Obviously if it’s a larger bag, you can always debut it at a nice lunch or a good shopping date – maybe like a luncheon or a Dodger’s game. Obviously for smaller bags, clutches and stuff, you can always wait for something in the evening like a big party.

Henry Charles Carey

If you think back to the first sporting event you went to, you don’t remember the score, you don’t remember a home run, you don’t remember a dunk. You remember who you were with. Were you with your mom, your dad, your brother, on a date?
My issue was I was always the friend and never the girl, so I always had crushes on guys, and they all wanted to date my friends.
I find that the majority of the actors I’ve worked with are extremely sensitive people and very spontaneous people. That’s why I always say I’ll never date an actor, because they’re in love with you one day and the next day they’re not.
I go out and date people, but I don’t have that relationship, where you know, I’m like Jennifer Lopez, like I’m going to get married.
I don’t see myself racing at 50 years old. I enjoy racing, and that has been my whole life. But one day I will take time to look at other things. I know that everything has an end date, even life, and I also have a family and there are other things to enjoy than trying to be first into the corner and fastest out.
I think it’s definitely important to look like yourself on a date. You don’t want to look like someone else with too much makeup or too much hair.
Being a man repeller becomes a process of elimination. If a guy is only really into your outfit and won’t date you because of what you’re wearing, they are too driven by the female exterior and don’t care about your intellect.
I certainly didn’t want to date. I was through with guys.
There have been so many times when I’m sitting next to someone, and I have no idea who they are. I’m not very up to date on pop culture, and I’m sure I’ve offended people by being like, ‘Oh, what do you do?’
All my friends were doing just dumb stuff that kids do, like making out with people at parties and starting to date… I didn’t know any gay people growing up or any queer people growing up, and so I just really felt alone and kind of lost, and I just wasn’t experiencing life.
She’s there for life, but even though it’s hard to date with my mom around, I’m so thankful for it because the person who can’t take Mama Mai is not the person to take me.
I guess my use-by date is just about up but if I could come back as a storyteller now, I would be jumping over the moon because wow, just think what’s available.
I usually have a few coins in my pocket when I’m playing, but the one I use to mark my ball on the green is a special silver coin that my wife designed for me. It has our wedding date inscribed on it.
A romantic date for me is sitting in pajamas and being with a guy with whom I can be myself.

When you know what the male species is looking for – ‘I’m not into a redhead,’ ‘I don’t want a fat chick,’ – I have to tell them that X won’t date you unless you’re this. I’m just the messenger.
I’m very romantic, I’m extremely romantic. I date my wife.
You know, I’m not sure I ever even had a blind date!
My one criticism of Vertigo Crime to date is that it’s been a boys’ club, reveling in violence that, while entertainingly lurid, lacks depth. Of course, the comics world is deliberately double-dimensional – and shouldn’t apologize for being so.
Of course my parents are picky about the girls I date; my parents watch out for me.
My first-ever date on my first tour, the sound completely cut out. So I had to go on and just shout loudly to the audience.
It is hard to date anywhere… I think you just get a little older and hopefully a clearer idea of who you – I don’t know. It is hard.

My perfect first date? Maybe a concert or a football game. That would be my ideal first date, but would the girl like it? I don’t know.
I prefer face-to-face conversation as opposed to texting. You need to go out of your way to spend good time with one another; you need to have a date night. Whether you have kids or a career or whatever, for a relationship to thrive, it’s about making time for each other.
When you date someone who loves the outdoors, it’s inspiring.
When you lock a movie’s release date and then move it two months, it’s just not good. It’s good for everything but the cast, crew, and people who are creatively trying to make a film.
They’re like a weird couple. If you were to personify the artichoke and the oyster, they would have a great date. They would totally get along.
Normal kids in their teens want to go and date girls and do mischievous things, your hormones are jumping around, but I stayed in my bedroom in search of something.
I love watching reality shows – I’m up to date with ‘America’s Next Top Model’ and I love ‘Project Runway.’ But the shows where they’re just sitting in a house aren’t as fun to me!
You know, for a normal kid it might be how to ask somebody out on a date or how to deal with the SATs or just how to deal with the bully down the block. And the X-Men have the conflict of Magneto or aliens or what-have-you.
In ‘Mr Shrimati,’ I had a long role as a woman. A cabaret number was also picturised on me. I really worked hard in that film and feel that to date, no man has matched my level when playing a woman.
A lot of people – boys – look at me differently. They think that if they date me, they are gay because they are dating another boy. In instances like this, I feel almost excluded, if that’s the right word. I feel like I’m being put on a different shelf.
I have no desire to write fiction. I did what I did, and it’s done. There’s more to life than writing and publishing fiction. There is another way entirely, amazed as I am to discover it at this late date.
The hottest look for a night out is a deep side part. If that part is not at least three inches in length, then start over. The wider the part, the more open your eyes appear. It is an alluring and seductive look that will keep your date’s attention the entire night.
In high school, my prom date fooled around with another guy – on prom night!
The notion that it is improper to look beyond the borders of the United States in grappling with hard questions has a certain kinship to the view that the U.S. Constitution is a document essentially frozen in time as of the date of its ratification.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Racism has a very quick expiration date when exposed to actual contact with people.

The U.N. has been so disappointing to date on the whole Rwanda issue that despite the people they’ve sent through, and I have no doubt their competence, in the end, the decision is going to be made by other people and not by them.
There are many benefits to having interesting friends on Facebook. In my case, given that fellow academics constitute a sizable portion of my online friends, I am at times privy to shared studies that I might otherwise miss (or perhaps only identify at some future date).
Girl-wise, I never got the girl. Because of my mother and our economy, I never had clothes. And I never – like I said – dated. I didn’t date at all. I was never a guy who had girlfriends.
I date African-American women. That’s all I date. In my family, it was never discussed – but I love black women. Nothing beats a sister. However, when you see a female like Jennifer Lopez, you have to acknowledge that there are many beautiful Latino women as well.
Stephen A. Smith
When do you suppose the electric guitar was invented? If you thought the 1950s, you’d be wrong. If you can muster a recollection of hearing electric guitar in Lionel Hampton’s big band in the 1940s and date it to that decade, you’d still be off – by more than 30 years.
Here’s the problem with Easter. The Catholic Church needs to pick a date because it keeps moving. And I think the reason they always have Easter moving to different dates is to catch us.
One of the things I noticed is that people really change when they realize their expiration date is coming, and they know what it is. Most of us don’t: we just hope we can live as long as we can and do as much good as we can.
The worst thing a man can ever do is kiss me on the first date.
There are days when I look at my news feed, and it seems like a social fabric of fun – a video of the first steps of my friends’ baby! My nephew’s prom date! On other days, it feels like a NASCAR vehicle, plastered with news stories, promoted posts, lame Live videos, and random content.
I don’t have time to date.
Honestly, the way I make music, you know – it’s like, I don’t want to sound cocky or anything, but I try my best to make time with music that doesn’t have an expiration date.

When you’re friends with someone, you can’t just go out to dinner and say ‘O.K., now this is a date.’ You’ve got to do something very different.
We left Egypt when I was seven, and we didn’t return until I was 21. My teen years were divided between the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia. Up until we left the U.K., it was like your regular teenage years. The one thing I remember is that I couldn’t date. That was one thing my parents made very clear.
I guess I’ve always been a groupie. My first date was a bull rider called Tommy Lee Bryant. We’d go to the rodeo every Saturday and Sunday. The bull riders were the cool guys.
In my humble opinion, preserving racial purity isn’t a worthwhile goal. You should be able to date whomever, whenever, wherever without the threat of a backlash.
So much of journalism is conveying a place and time that existed, to someone at a later date: giving a person the context and trying to make them feel as informed as if they were actually there.
I date fairly often, but my work is much more important.
People are intrigued when they discover you date a footballer – women especially.
Zoe Foster Blake
I’ve never dated. I can say this honestly: I don’t know what it’s like to date. But also, how am I going to date? I’m not in one state long enough.
An article can be timely, topical, engaged in the issues and personalities of the moment; it is likely to be stale within the month. In five years, it may have acquired the quaint aura of a rotary phone. An article is usually Siamese-twinned to its date of birth.
You have to be careful not to use anything too colloquial or you date the book.
My husband and I met on OKCupid. We went out on our little coffee date, and I knew right away he was my husband. He’s a handsome, smarty-pants architect from Tokyo. On our first date, I said, ‘I wake up like this. I’m Pollyanna Sunshine, and I’m not for everyone’.
Date syrup is a natural sweetener that has wonderful richness and treacly depth; I drizzle it over semolina porridge.
I think that we all desperately try to fit in to different molds: our parents, our bosses, our partners, social status, friends. We all figure out a look that we think will get us the job or make his parents approve of us or get that girl to want to go on a date, whatever. We all change ourselves to please whoever it is.
Up until age 40, most men are just not as mature as women. So, it makes sense that a lot of women date up in age a bit.
I’m an easy date. I meant cheap date, cheap date!
After the launch of Bumble Date, users were starting to connect as friends, so we decided to launch BFF. When I was using BFF, I matched with someone who I then went on to hire at Bumble HQ. From there, I thought, why not create a platform for women to build business connections and advance their careers.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
My first date ever, I was kind of nervous, so I was like, ‘I’m going to bring Brady to this walk on the beach with this girl,’ and she was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I have a King Charles Cavalier, too.’ I’m like, ‘Money, perfect, amazing.’
Guys usually like a very natural look. I think it’s bad idea to wear a strong lip on a first date – or for the first few dates. I’m always too nervous he’ll kiss it off – if I’m lucky enough to get a kiss! I also think soft, sexy hair is important.
Who asks who out on the date? Who’s supposed to pay for dinner? Who chooses where you go? Both partners should be involved in these discussions. If we want to be treated as equals, don’t put yourself in a position where you set yourself up to not be equal.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
On the one blind date I went on, I had a backup. If I texted you the code word, you call and say my dogs are sick.

People really in the meat grinder of the front lines are not, for the most part, insured or salaried network correspondents. They’re young freelancers. They’re kind of a cheap date for the news industry.
I would like you to consider the difference in the time from 1963 to date. The FBI, at that time, was headed by Mr. Hoover who had been appointed Director continuously. He had, I would say, a good reputation.
John Sherman Cooper
Certainly working with teens keeps me up to date with language and with certain kinds of thinking.
Traditional performance reviews have passed their sell-by date. Big time. There’s research showing that roughly two-thirds of performance appraisals have either no effect – or a negative effect! – on employee performance.
Daniel H. Pink
I had one girl send me an e-mail saying she wants to go out with me, but it’s like a two-pronged deal because she wants to blog the date. And I’m like, No! I don’t want to be on a reality show.
I will use my expertise in technology to bring the IRS up to date.
When a woman cries date rape what she means is the whole thing went too quickly.
I grew up in a small town where we played around on motorcycles and things, but it really started when I got old enough. I think I was obsessed with the culture of riding. I got sick of having to date guys who rode motorcycles for me to be on them.
I have been alone since my husband died. I stay in my home. I don’t date. It’s hard to date when you’re at home. Nobody knows you.
Anna Nicole Smith
Frankly, I’ll believe in horoscopes the day I can describe my personality to an astrologer and they tell me what date I was born.
I’m such a weirdo. I’m animal-mad, so my ideal date would probably be something involving going to see animals.

I want to date someone who likes who I am as a person and not what I do for a living.

Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.
Mary Ellen Chase
You will see a 3-D movie in a movie theater for the shared experience of it – or for a date, and so on. You don’t all sit at home getting your entertainment in a vacuum.
Good design doesn’t date. Bad design does.
You date people to practice and to learn and to grow. But for me, everything was always a hang-up, or there was something there that I felt was a bit off.
I like a man who can come out and say he’s nervous on the first date. I think that would be really cute.
A music director cannot and should not be chosen on the basis of a first date. It is not so difficult to make a good impression with a single appearance, usually containing some of a conductor’s party pieces, works they have performed successfully many times before.
The image of my face I hold in my mind is always about 10 years out of date.
The only album that I listen to upon recording a new one is my ‘Cry’ album, because sonically, I think it’s my best album to date. But other than that, I’ve never listened to my records, ever.

All men that date me have to know that their name may end up in a pop song.
You can’t date if you’re famous. That’s how it seems to me.

As you schedule individual tasks, give yourself a cushion. Mark the due date a few days ahead of the actual deadline so you have time to deal with changes or last-minute emergencies.
I always say horror films are great date movies. In the first twenty minutes, you’re going to end up in each other’s arms.
TV doesn’t, in general, date very well.
When Savage died, that was hard on me. I didn’t even hardly know Randy, but I just turned 51 this past December, and he was 58 when he died. I’m like, ‘Hey man, just because I’m in that line of work, do I have an expiration date? Am I supposed to go?’ I always wonder, but I don’t harbor it.
Stone Cold Steve Austin
Who says I’m gonna marry another guy? In Europe it’s not like in America, where you set a date.

Teaching was the hardest work I had ever done, and it remains the hardest work I have done to date.

Just like people date and break up, friends break up, too. ‘Best friends forever’ rarely ever happens; it’s just that no one talks about it.
I’d got to that age when I was out on a date with a guy and I would be thinking: Don’t mention your age, don’t mention that you want a child – because they would just run out the door.
Denise Van Outen
It’s easier to date a football player for sure. Football players have one game a week, and they practice every day, but they’re all at home. In basketball, they’re on the road all the time.
For a dinner date, I eat light all day to save room, then I go all in: I choose this meal and this order, and I choose you, the person across from me, to share it with. There’s a beautiful intimacy in a meal like that.
When I say there is no such crime as date rape I am saying what is true. There isn’t a specific legal category of date rape and I wanted to make that point in order to ensure that people don’t use this to obscure the difference between real sexual violence and, you know, things that have gone wrong.
I’ve said a lot of things: I’ve said I’m never going to date someone in the business and that I’m never going to date someone outside the business.
There is nothing that I shudder at more than the idea of a separation of the Union. Should such an event ever happen, which I fervently pray God to avert, from that date I view our liberty gone.
I have to say, I’m really not that attractive. Until I met my husband, I could not get a date.

Sure, food stamps are occasionally misused, but anyone familiar with business knows that the abuse of food subsidies is far greater in the corporate suite. Every time an executive wines and dines a hot date on the corporate dime, the average taxpayer helps foot the bill.
I just refuse to date actors. I’ve done that, and I don’t want to do that anymore. It’s just the stress of traveling and being away from each other so much.
A lot of my struggles with nutrition date back to my swimming days. I was a super-skinny young girl who would go through hours of intense training. Afterward, I’d be famished, but I had a two-hour trip home before dinner. When I did my hardest workouts, I often ate less; I was too tired to think about food.
The whole time after you record an album, you’re just waiting for the release date. You’re waiting for fans to hear it and stuff.
For a time in high school, I had glasses, braces, and a cast. I like to call this look ‘no date for homecoming.’

I had some friends who were great skiers who I would hang out with, like Jonny Moseley, the Olympic moguls champion, who tried to date my sister once.
I have never been a fan of bond funds. Unlike a direct investment in an individual bond that you can hold to maturity and be assured you will get your principal back (assuming no default), a fund has no finite maturity date and most funds are actively traded.
So I go to my first book signing, and these two girls came up and gave me a piece of paper: ’10 reasons you should date our dad. He climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. He’s a lawyer.’ He didn’t know what was going on. He didn’t even know me. They called him, and he came down and asked me out that day. Now I’m dating their dad!
Exercise is important, but exercise in a gym is not important. Go and take a walk outside. Skip the umpteenth coffee date and go for a hike instead. Take the stairs. Walk your errands.
I’m riding my man Obama. I think he’s a visionary. Actually, Barack told me the first date he took Michelle to was ‘Do the Right Thing.’ I said, Thank God I made it. Otherwise you would have taken her to ‘Soul Man.’ Michelle would have been like ‘What’s wrong with this brother?’
I worked for this company that repossessed cars. Sure enough, the day after I quit, they repossessed my car, but that would probably be my strangest job to date. You have to work your way up to become a hardcore repo man.
I think just… never date anyone who doesn’t accept you, and don’t change for them. They aren’t going to change for you.
I think it’s ridiculous when people say, ‘I don’t date actors.’ It’s about the right person, and no matter what that right person does for a profession, they’re still going to be the right person.
I had grown up watching these American proms in movies, thinking, ‘Wow, that looks like so much fun! I want a corsage! I want a date!’ So getting to actually have my own movie American prom was a real treat.
Career had a lot to do with 80 percent of my breakups. It’s very tough to date a struggling musician. The idea of it is enticing and fun and mysterious. But the reality is long hours and hard work. I have a lot of respect for the women I’ve dated.
According to Ted Watt’s ‘The First Labor Day Parade,’ the September date was chosen because it coincided with a Knights of Labor conference in New York, thus guaranteeing a sizable turnout for the festivities.
Brendan I. Koerner
MySpace is like a bar, Facebook is like the BBQ you have in your back yard with friends and family, play games, share pictures. Facebook is much better for sharing than MySpace. LinkedIn is the office, how you stay up to date, solve professional problems.
I don’t have much experience, but the few times when I would go on a date with a girl – like when I was 12 – there was a lot of sharing, and a lot of talking, and a lot of asking how I am. They thought we were dating, and I was sort of hoping to meet their brothers.
I crashed my bicycle on the way to my first date with my ex-girlfriend and was cautioned by the police.
I really look up to writers who are able to write compressed, single-scene stories, where everything happens in a kitchen. But I just can’t think that way. For me it would be impossible to write a story where I didn’t know what someone’s parents did and what their grandparents did and who they used to date.
I always date younger men. For some reason that’s just the way it’s gone, because younger guys have always asked me out and I accept.
For Scary Movie 2, we had a due date and had to work fast. And though there’s a lot of pressure, as artists, we just block it out. So really, the pressure comes from us. That’s how the first movie happened. There was no outside pressure: we wanted to hit the audience hard.
I think I’m past my due date. I just feel it.
Success in math and the hard sciences, far from being a matter of gender, is almost entirely dependent on culture – a culture that teaches girls math isn’t cool and no one will date them if they excel in physics.
‘Blind Date’ was my lifeline. It was 90 minutes when I could forget about everything, forget about the world.
I have a rule where once a week I have a date night with my wife, and that’s the time when I put my phone away and have calls forwarded to my assistant in case of emergency.
Is Amazon truly the best online buying experience? Absolutely not. Is eBay the best platform for auction? Probably not. Are dating sites like match.com really a reflection of the way people date? Probably not.
I get nervous before everything – dates, filming, award shows. I just don’t want to say something stupid. But as soon as I step out on that stage, or as soon as I show up to a date, it all goes away, and I just have a great time with whoever I’m with.
I’ve tried digital planners and fancy planners and date books galore, but my tried and true is actually just a large spiral-bound notebook.
‘The Pushcart War’ is presented as a history of a conflict that has not yet taken place; in each edition of the book, the date on which the hostilities commenced is nudged forward.
Building a professional relationship on respect as opposed to affection is a very good idea. Running your art projects the way you’d run a dry-cleaning business is also a really good idea. You shouldn’t go into work like you’re going on a date, like you’re hanging out with friends.
It’s difficult to keep your eyes moist free and your head clear when the girl you really really liked chooses to go on a date with your best friend.
I’m wide open to getting married, but actors are not easy people to date. You end up sharing that person with this other mistress that is their career. I very much like the traditional courtship method of making a date. That’s what they do in normal places, but Hollywood’s not normal.
I’m cute – and God I hate that. Because that’s not cool. I’m like your niece, and nobody wants to date their niece. It’s the chubby cheeks. The whole reason people voted for me on American Idol is because I’m an everyday, normal girl.
With dates I like to cater a girl. We do whatever she likes. If she was open to what I wanted to do, it probably wouldn’t be a dull date, because I am a jock.
All couples have been told to schedule regular one-on-one time. ‘Date night’ is the default answer to most problems in modern marriages. And research backs this up.
I don’t date girls. I date women.
Honestly, I have a tendency to date dorks. Which means that a lot of times, I date guys that no one else would deem to be a hunk.
It’s a real player move to take a girl wine-tasting on a date – she’ll like that.
Maybe 10 times a year I’ll do a corporate date, but no casinos or no nightclubs or no comedy clubs.
First date, it’s always fun to go somewhere or do something, like go see a band… not make it too formal.
Certification programs for social media are blossoming as a response to the demand for more social media training. Both industry professionals and recent graduates are tapping into tactical training programs to help them stay up to date as the industry grows.
The blind date that has stood you up: your life.
We, Norton I, do hereby decree that the offices of President, Vice President, and Speaker of the House of Representatives are, from and after this date, abolished.
Joshua A. Norton
The release date is just one day, but the record is forever.
You probably shouldn’t date a songwriter if you don’t want to end up on the record.
People who have theater or sketch-comedy backgrounds seem to be more, you know, our speed. Like Amy Poehler and Will Arnett – we double date.
First dates are so awkward and annoying. I think a casual and fun first date with friends is much more fun than a one-on-one typical first date.
I knew a ton of actors and was friends with them, but I never dated actresses. I tried to date ‘normal’ people because the Hollywood dating rule is ‘one star per couple’ because it’s quite a challenge to match the egos of two actors.
Some of us have been told what we want our whole lives. We’ve been told we should want to go out for sports or not. We should want a college education or a graduate degree or a particular career. We should want to date this person and not the other.
I want to actually date someone who is not from this industry.
I say now, if I’m not laughing a whole lot on the first date, you’re pretty much not going to get a second one, I can tell you that. It’s all about the laughter and a good time for me.
Recently I’ve been collecting Star Wars figures again. When I was a kid I couldn’t afford them. Now I can so I’ve been buying them and keeping them in their box for a later date when they’ll be worth a lot of money.
Very intense first summer out, to be 18 years old and never having gone on a date, never having smoked a cigarette, never had a drink, even a sip of beer, never kissed a girl, all of those things. It made for a fairly intense first year out.
Going out to look for a date, I don’t have to do that. They come to me.
For a war correspondent to miss an invasion is like refusing a date with Lana Turner.
I’ve never done a blind date but my parents met on a blind date.
You know, I do not know, I just want to date someone who makes me happy.
I’m a real low profile guy. So a date night for me is kind of curled up at home and watching something… have a nice glass of wine, a nice meal and we’re all set.
Certainly working with teens keeps me up to date with language and with certain kinds of thinking. I often feel like I have to go back to that 17-year-old Chris Crutcher, and that forms the core voice. I can draw on teens from 1964 to 2001 to find a part of the voice I need.
I’m the type of person that cannot survive if I have a lack of sleep. I just turn into an angry monster so I have to be pretty consistent about getting a good night’s rest and, you know, even if that means saying no to a dinner date or going out somewhere.
The English, in their ignorance, still have the romantic notion that Scottish schools are superior to English ones; they are at least a generation out of date.

Nearly every notable event in ‘Wake’ has a date or a time stamp.
Keeping the risk management plan up to date can transform it from a door stop into a vital project management tool. Remember: what you don’t know can kill your project.
I won’t hire someone or date a girl who has not worked in a restaurant, and that’s the honest truth. I don’t think you know how it is until you’ve worked in a restaurant.
I’ve had dates at the nicest restaurants, but when you leave, you’re starving, and the best part of the date is having a slice of pizza and a couple of drinks on the way home. I think it’s important to be able to roll with the punches and enjoy every minute of it.
You can always tell a man’s nationality by introducing him to a beautiful girl. An Englishman shakes her hand; a Frenchman kisses her hand; an American asks her for a date; and a Russian wires Moscow for instructions.
I am greatly proud of the fact that ‘Doom’ is one of those things where everything that has a 32-bit processor has had ‘Doom’ run on it, and I think that’s been one of the great aspects of having it be open source: having everything out there means that people have maintained that and kept it up to date.
I don’t know if there is an expiration date on diversity.
I should see a board of directors who should vote on who I should date.
I’m a really good friend; I’m terrible to date.
I like girls that have a nice smile and nice eyes. I want to date a girl who understands my busy schedule and that I have to be on tour a lot. And she has to make me laugh!
My forays into trying to date girls my own age from the school I went to were all pretty tortured.
One of the greatest things to hear on a date is ‘I never do this,’ which translates to ‘I pretty much always do this but I’m conflicted about it and I’d really like you to believe I don’t.’
For a long time I didn’t want to date or get naked with ‘anyone – I was so fat. But I changed every part of my life to lose weight and have a better life.
Yeah, it’s tough being smart and sexy, too. I have to say, I’m really not that attractive. Until I met my husband, I could not get a date. I promise you it’s true. My husband Jeff Richmond saw a diamond in the rough and took me in.
The company Liberated People represents just not liberation of different nations around the world; it can be special liberation days. It can be what the company represents and helps highlight someone’s personal liberation date.
I’m plastic so I will never age, but Jonathan definitely has an expiration date.
I’ve come to believe that whoever I am didn’t start on December 14, 1946, and isn’t going to end on whatever that mysterious date is in the future.

That men have an interest in knowing the world which surrounds them, and consequently that their reflection should have been applied to it at an early date, is something that everyone will readily admit.
I want to race as long as I’m having fun, it’s competitive and healthy, and who knows when that, you know, date comes when that’s not happening anymore.
Certain formats should never be forgotten, ‘Blind Date’ for instance, because ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ is really ‘New Faces’ or ‘The Gong Show,’ whilst we’re basically ‘Opportunity Knocks.’
I’ve got more important things to think about. I’ve got a yogurt to finish by today, the expiry date is today.
I don’t date my girlfriend because she’s a model. I date her because I love her.
I do date quite frequently.
To me, England is past its sell-by date. It’s not the country I grew up in.
I hope that by going to visit the pope I have enabled everybody to see that the words Catholic and Protestant, as ordinarily used, are completely out of date. They are almost always used now purely for propaganda purposes. That is why so much trouble is caused by them.
We haven’t even gotten a start date but we’ll see what happens with that and that will be fun. I’ve gotten a couple of other things but I’m not really committing myself to anything yet.
Guys want a 500 horsepower car. I’d rather have one horsepower – in a horse. That’s macho. You go to pick up your date and you show up on a horse.
Although Damascus is considered the oldest city in the world, the date of its foundation going beyond tradition, there are very few relics of antiquity in or near it.
When going out on a date, I think there are certain old-fashioned manners that I still enjoy. I don’t mean that as an anti-feminist comment. I just mean it as a pro-women comment. There must be a place for us to exist and our differences to exist without one taking away from the other.
Art galleries are the best first date spots for my money.
Pride was a date night – the cool thing to do at the time – so people were dressed to the nines, and they got quite an experience, visually and otherwise. It was Cirque du Soleil meets the Super Bowl meets WrestleMania meets your favorite rock n’ roll concert.
The indie movie world is like a bad Tinder date, and there are always strings attached.
T.V. found me. I was offered jobs. It came in handy when I started having babies. Just one night’s work, and then I could go home. I loved ‘Surprise Surprise’, but it was hard work. ‘Blind Date’ was a doddle by comparison.
I have spent a decade of my life dating. I am thrilled about never going on another bad date for the rest of my life. I’m also so excited to learn and grow with the person I respect most in this world.
In the business I meet some beautiful women, but to be honest, 80 per cent of them are raving lunatics and are to be avoided. It’s just insecurity; actors are generally quite insecure. I wouldn’t date, or I’ve never had a fling with an actress, and I’d quite like to keep it that way.
I definitely need to date someone who is calm.
People can have so many ill-conceived ideas about me based on the parts that I play. I’ve had guys, when I’ve been single, come out of the woodwork to date me and I’ve found out very quickly that they were expecting some kind of whirlwind, some dramatic crazy person – and that’s just not me.
Jennifer Jason Leigh
I’ll tell you who makes me laugh, in a good way, and I’d love to have a date with her: if I could just have a salad with Lady Gaga? This would be my – I would almost probably faint.
I heard recently that I used to date Patrick Swayze.
I’m not on any social media. I know people who have met on Twitter and through Facebook. I had a friend, someone liked her photos on Instagram, and they started direct messaging each other and went out on a date! That’s so foreign to me.
I’m freakishly competitive, so I set a date to achieve a certain weight or fitness.
My wedding preparations were done. My wedding outfit was ready. I had even bought my jewellery, and the cards were also printed. It is very sad that I had to call off my marriage one month prior to the actual date.
I’ve never seen anything like the way some young people behave. They go out on a date, and they’re sitting opposite each other at a table, and they’re not looking at each other, and they text each other as though they’re deaf-mutes. It’s insane.
I’m always like the guy who wants to date the pretty girl so bad, and when he finally gets the chance, he blows it because he spends too much time worrying about it.
I have a theory that people tell you everything you need to know the first week you meet them. And often even on the first date.
One of the first shows I ever did was ‘Laverne & Shirley.’ I played this sleazy guy that came into town with a friend and was going to date Laverne and Shirley, but we really wanted to get into the bowling alley because it was next to the bank we wanted to rob.
I have a save file in ‘Final Fantasy XII’ that is 125 hours long. I have gotten into legitimate arguments over the rules governing the tapping of mana in ‘Magic: The Gathering.’ I don’t like hugs or parties, high school sucked for me, and Nathan Fillion deemed something I wrote his ‘Favorite ‘Firefly’ fanboy rant to date.’
My friends are very opinionated about the people I date.
All coffee shops now have WiFi. Why bring a book when you could be wittily attacking some idiot columnist on Twitter, or responding to your date requests, or posting a picture of your foot? All of that is more gripping and immediate and social than books.
It’s really hard for me to meet someone. I don’t want to date actors. Been there, done that. Only one actor per household, please.
This Congress has promised all manner of border security and port security to the tune of billions of dollars… yet we have – to date – funded our promises for port security at only $900 million. That’s quite a distance between what we say and what we actually do.
Going to work out with a friend also forces me to ‘keep the date’ because it’s more difficult to bail on them. A good friend at the gym can go a long way.
My whole life, meeting people is like a blind date, because I feel like they’ve already seen the video on me.
Michael J. Fox
We try to live by the secret of sevens. A friend, who has been married for over 40 years, told us about this magic. Make and keep a date every seven days, take a night away alone, for yourself, every seven weeks, and schedule an adult-only vacation every seven months.
I think you are going through so many ‘firsts’ as a teenager, and it’s a charged time because of that. You don’t have much autonomy in life. Everything is just kind of crazy, and there are so many huge decisions to be made, like where are you going to college or who you date. These things can really affect your whole life.
I ended up breaking with my boyfriend, and a week later, Neil and I had a date. We started hanging out every single night, and after three months, it was just non-stop. We talk on the phone at least eight times a day and text at least 25 times a day. He’s my lifeline in an amazing way. Without him, I can’t breathe.
I can’t say I am totally up to date with the latest technology, but at the same time, I would say that I am very good at working out how to use technical items.
I travel a lot, and that makes it harder to date, but it also opens up opportunities for me to meet people where I wouldn’t normally meet them.
Well it has been very exciting and very changing as well. Celebrating the 40th year and having the album out and the Channel 4 documentary and I resigned from Blind Date.
When people ask how I came up with the concept for my second novel, ‘The Immortalists’ – four siblings visit a fortune teller who is rumored to be able to tell anyone the date that they will die – I always wish I had a better answer.
Sometimes we postpone releases because of another big film or some other reasons. In the end, the big film, too, postpones, and the impact is on the small films. So once you decide on a release date, you have to go ahead with it.
Consider the fellow. He never spends his time telling you about his previous night’s date. You get the idea he has eyes only for you and wouldn’t think of looking at another woman.
I’m pretty good at remaining calm during an emergency. My house burned down when I was 12, which made me really pragmatic about what needed to be done. But I can be bad in that I compartmentalize a lot of emotions and push them away to deal with them at a later date.
I used to date Kellan Lutz. We were together for two and a half years, but the distance and travel really kept us apart. In the end, we decided it wouldn’t work, but we’re still good friends.
Celebrities say they date other celebrities because they have the same job. But I think they just like dating famous people. Celebrities attract each other, like cattle.
We did talk about cheese on our first date.
I’m a straight guy and I date women, but I get on really well with gay guys. I’m very comfortable with my sexuality. The weirdest thing for me is when straight guys get really freaked out by gay guys. It’s almost like they’re insecure in their own sexuality. For me, I can be in a room full of gay men and have fun.
A lot of times, when I met somebody and took them out on a date, I obviously didn’t tell them my background, because I didn’t think I’d see them but once or twice.
My father, Dennis Popham, was a very handsome, talented artist, and as my mother always reminds me, ‘someone who had wonderful style.’ He was half Samoan-German, half New Zealander, and their first date was to a Fleetwood Mac concert, which I love the thought of.
The best thing a man can do on a first date is be a friend. I think that’s the biggest mistake men make on the first date. Just get to know me. Be my friend. Just kick it with me as if I was hanging with a homeboy. It shouldn’t be this awkward situation. It should be that we’re there, having a great time.
War had always seemed to me to be a purely human behavior. Accounts of warlike behavior date back to the very first written records of human history; it seemed to be an almost universal characteristic of human groups.
I feel like I look 16 sometimes, which is a bummer, because I would love to date older guys.
I’ve dated girls and I always wait for that one right time to kiss. I don’t kiss on the first date, so I’ll take a girl out to dinners, and we’ll go bowling, and I make sure to charm them before I do it.
I like to release music the way I feel it, as opposed to having a date. The idea of dates, boxes, categories are very scary for me.
We cannot let fear and terror dictate how we live our lives, no matter what. Life is a blessing with an expiration date, and we must embrace it while we can.
In high school I never went to the prom because I was too consumed with gymnastics. Also, with my hair in pigtails and looking about 10, I wasn’t exactly date material.
Let’s put it this way: The older you get, the easier it is to date younger men. There are more of them.
Once I got divorced, there was this knee-jerk reaction to get back in the action and date. I think there’s something wrong in that.
And who wouldn’t want to date Jonathan Bennett, right?
It’s so interesting how much a bad kiss can ruin a date.
Look, to be honest, when certain movies like ‘Ninja Assassin’ came out, that had a sexy, sexy Asian man with a six-pack, that made some people think, ‘Maybe I should go out there and date an Asian dude.’ And that did pretty good for us in a way of representation.
Jimmy O. Yang
I had an awful first quarter but I picked it up. To all you single guys out there, it’s not how you start the date, it’s how you finish it sir. A lot of people can, you know, start the date with flowers and candy, but if you don’t finish the date – you know what I mean?
I want more girls’ nights, more dinner parties, more date nights, more nights on the couch with zucchini fries watching bad reality television.
I firmly believe that in order to take the best care of our children, we need to be sure that we take care of ourselves. I make it a priority to plan date night once a week, make time for a massage or, at the very least, a bubble bath when I can.
The one thing I do believe is, if you make the songs about the human aspects of things, you’ve got a much better chance of having the music transcend the times. If you make them very political and very topical, it’s going to date very quickly.
Teens are always shown as one dimensional. They’re stereotyped. When I was in high school, I cared about more than getting a date or making the team.
Music is neither old nor modern: it is either good or bad music, and the date at which it was written has no significance whatever.
Styles move too fast to be partial to anything. If it’s funk, that’s enough for me. I don’t care how fast or slow it is. I got my grandkids up front rapping and doing the new thing. They’re teaching each other, bringing us up to date.
Horror movies are the best date movies. There’s no wondering, ‘When do I put my arm around her?’
Sometimes you will hear me say right on the air, ‘You just cited a poll that is not even part of Real Clear Politics,’ which is an average, an aggregate. Yours is seeming to be an outlier. Give me the name of that poll and the date that it was taken. I will say it right on the air.
I’m very transparent. What you see is what you get. ‘I date this person, this happened to me’ and I have to be honest about it… because of that I developed a backbone.
I had this desk alongside the most beautiful Australian 18-year-old girl with long brown hair, and I got up enough nerve to ask her for a date.
When your in the movie business you have a start date and a stop date.
All good music, whatever its date, is ageless – as alive and significant today as it was when it was written.
At home, we live on the beach, and it’s like every day is a date.
Even in Los Angeles, where we lived, when we would date somebody or go out with them, if we went out with somebody else the next night, we often found that women were banging on our windows while we were bedded down with other women!
I imagine I’m a very unusual guy to date. You know, I’ve got toys on the shelves, and I’ve got the cars.
Young men do not want to have to take a consent form and a lawyer on a date, just as young women have every right to go on a date and to say ‘No’, having it respected.
I have a lot of contacts, a lot of sources that I’ve developed over the years and I like to break this guy signs, this guy is fighting this guy, this event is happening on such a date.
For a date, I’d like to do something different to drinks or dinner – like walking around Camden for a day in the sun, or something weird, like skydiving. Then at least if you don’t get on you’ve had fun.
I see a cute guy in Starbucks and I’m like… ‘Oh, okay,’ and I walk out. But who knows? Maybe I will ask somebody on a date soon!
I wouldn’t date an actress. There’s only room for one actor in my life and I’m it. Too difficult. On the one hand, they understand the job. But on the other hand, it’s very competitive within the relationship. Two actors, say one becomes a mega-star and the other doesn’t.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers
About once a month or so, my daughter and I go out on what we call a Fancy Dinner Date, just the two of us.
I’m not totally innocent, and I do date. But as a young woman, I also demand respect.
I’m a serial monogamist. I’m not one of those people that can date loads of people at the same time, it’s all too complicated.

Ideas have a short shelf life. You must act on them before the expiration date.
John C. Maxwell
It’s still thrilling, even if my work is something that people even pretend they’re interested in on a first date or at a cocktail party.
When we shoot ‘Scrubs’ I spend every waking hour of my life in an abandoned and haunted hospital. All I can date there are ghosts and they tend to be horrible snugglers.
It would be weird enough just being in a band trying to date. It makes it harder being a parent. And it makes it really interesting when you’re trans.
Laura Jane Grace
Like the winds that we come we know not whence and blow whither soever they list, the forces of society are derived from an obscure and distant origin. They arise before the date of philosophy, from the instincts, not the speculations of men.
I think that God will provide opportunities and people and experiences, and everything we need to date and ultimately to find the one.
It’s not that I lead this oblivious life where I think I’ve got such a great personality that people want to spend time with me. If someone has a poster of you or asks for your autograph, clearly you can’t take them out on a date. It’s not that interesting if someone is just interested in you.
My ideal date would involve a park or rowing in those little boats on a lake.
Aja Naomi King
I am dismayed to realize that much of the advice I used to parcel out to aspiring writers has passed its sell-by date.
We think that there really is racial bias in determining who people want to date.
I started playing in my first band when I was 12. I like to date myself by saying I was in a New Age band when it wasn’t ironic; it was actually called new wave because it was new.
When I was in high school,we were, like, 4,000 or 5,000 students, and 50 girls – and I didn’t have a date for my prom. My father paid my cousin to take me.
‘Scary Movie’ has lost its way as a franchise. It has turned into ‘Disaster Film’ and ‘Epic Movie’ and ‘Date Movie’ and that isn’t what I wanted. I wanted to do a movie that was just grounded in a reality that went to crazy places.
People talk about ‘date night,’ and it is true: Sometimes you have to apply yourself, or at least apply lipstick to yourself. You kind of have to dress up, just because. You know, wear heels to your own dinner table.
I try to be careful to not just say it’s a greatest hits show because we’ve also made efforts to keep people up to date so to speak because we continually write and record and put out albums.
When my mother was born on 14 April, he named her after a Latin American holiday, the Day of Americas, that nobody knew about. My due date also happened to be 14 April.
Ideally, we date the folks who are dating for the same reason we are.
When you love yourself and are able to indulge in yourself, and you’re grounded in your ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ it’s nothing to ask a guy on a date.
I think fashion can always date, but I think if a woman has elegance, she doesn’t date.
I think it’s corny and cheesy for a dude to holler at a girl. That’s just disrespectful in my mind. I may talk to girls, but I don’t hang with girls; I don’t date girls. I haven’t really found anybody.
It is important to recognize that folklore is not simply a way of obtaining available date about identity for social scientists; it is actually one of the principal means by which an individual and a group discovers or establishes his or its identity.
Akshay’s idea of a romantic date is a six-kilometre jog, followed by 500 crunches… together! Eeeeks!
New media’s not very old, hence the word new, so we don’t know a lot of things about new media and by the time you’ve taught it it’s probably out of date. I think it’s much more beneficial to have an experiential lesson versus a classroom lesson in new media.
‘Save the Date’ feels like a quiet story about two sisters and the men in their lives, kind of reminiscent of the quieter rom-coms of the 1990s; it’s very character-driven and not as wedding-focused.
I think it’s wonderful when people who have lost someone find love again, but I’m not personally looking, and I haven’t been on a date in 27 years. In fact, it’s been so long, I’ve had a couple of lovely women ask me out because they figured that’s the case.

I won’t date a guy who doesn’t own a toolbox. I’m not saying you need to be able to knock down a wall or build a house or anything like that. But I’ve been out with a couple of guys who didn’t own toolboxes, and they couldn’t even change a light bulb.
I don’t know if I could date a single dad. It would depend on the guy.

Matthew Tobin Anderson
I took on the math-intensive art form of holography and, in my early 20s, traveled the world, living on university fellowships to pursue this esoteric craft. I didn’t date much, really – perhaps because I didn’t have many hormones, though I didn’t know that at the time.

‘Funny People’ is my favorite performance of myself to date. Even though it’s a comedy and there are serious moments, I really felt like Leo felt like a real person. It didn’t feel like I was playing myself. Whether it’s a comedy or drama, I just try to make it as realistic as possible.
My two big date deal breakers are someone with no sense of humor and someone who chews badly. I will never be with someone who never laughs or someone who chews disgustingly, so if either of those things are detected on a date – it’s a total deal breaker.

Finding a stylist is a little like finding a date; you have to find who is right for you.

I believe in sex on a first date. Otherwise, how do you know if a second date is worth the effort?
I didn’t date my wife in high school, but she was definitely by far the coolest woman there. She was definitely the most beautiful, but she also marched to the beat of her own drummer.

One week before my 17th birthday, I had a blind date with June Rose, a television actress on network soap operas, a model, and a regular on the popular Dick Clark’s Saturday night ‘American Bandstand’ show from New York. We were married five years later, one week after my graduation from Columbia.

Michael W. Smith

I’d like to date another millionaire. I’ve never done that.
The nice way to meet a guy is through getting to know them first. Then you can really judge their personality. What I can’t take is meeting someone, going on a date, getting to know them, then finding out they’re a complete psycho – ‘Great, I’ve just wasted all this time on you!’
