50 First Dates: 10 men tell us about their very first date

first time: Men tell us what it was like for them


Matt O from London. 32 and works in social media.

Mr. Irresistible

Everyone has a point where you are absolutely irresistible to the opposite sex.

Unfortunately, mine came when I was 8 years old. Not content with getting a kiss (A KISS!) from Sam at the school disco (I’d bought her a Panda Pop), my first actual, arranged in advance date was with Becky.

She was the first Becky I ever met and still ranks as the cutest. We met in the park, and my abiding memory is of asking her if she wanted to go and get Chinese food.

She politely refused and in my youthful awkwardness I proclaimed it to be “more of a burger and chips” type of evening. I still got a peck on the cheek at the end of the night, and the dating pattern was set for the rest of my life.

Gil is 30. He's a doctor and lives in London.

We were going to call our baby Potato

When I was three I had a "girlfriend" who I was going to marry. We were going to have a kid and call it "potato".

I still maintain it is a good name. I don't know of it was male or female (the baby, not the girlfriend).

She's an opera singer now.

Joe is 27. He's a systems administrator from London.

I swear I didn't look up her skirt!

Around the age of a 5 or 6, I went out with a girl from school for two weeks, whose house I used to go to and play with a big bucket of toy cars.

One day when we were sat opposite each other at a table in school, I dropped some item of stationery on the floor, and obviously went to pick it up.

The next thing I knew, her and all the other girls were calling me names and saying I was trying to look up her skirt, and she dumped me. I wasn't even trying to look!
