    Yes I don’t like to schedule dates on Sundays because that is the day I meal prep and relax. I almost never get drunk like that, but it was fun and was unexpected.

    No dates on non-date nights was one rule I had and looking back it was a dumb rule.

    If you set up a date for Sunday, that’s fine. Show self restraint on Saturday night to not get plastered. A close friend who is actively dating does Sunday dates and has zero issues.

    @ale – exes never come back in for good things. Don’t even give him the time of day to “explain” or “please his case”

    @ale I’m glad you feel mostly great about being single! I was single for over four years between my last LTR and current boyfriend, and hated being single at first. I think it’s normal to sometimes get down/frustrated/lonely being single (or, at least, it happened to me), and taking dating breaks during those times is a good idea. But as far as jerk ex-boyfriends suddenly becoming wonderful partners goes, I don’t think that happens.

    I think Sundays are fine for dates if you’re not someone who is usually raging on Saturday nights. I didn’t have any rules about which days of the week I was willing to go on dates, but did make sure that I didn’t interrupt my own life/routine too much to go on them. After-work drinks was usually my go-to.

    I was also single for a very long time (8 years) before I met MH. I enjoyed the single time, it can get lonely from time to time. I always found it helpful to reflect to be sure I wasn’t going to enter a bad relationship because of being lonely.

    I’ve had dates on Sundays but realized I prefer Saturdays or Fridays. It’s not a rule “per se”, it’s just a day that I take for me time and most of the time I don’t have the energy to get ready to go out and make a good first impression. Sometimes just putting on lipstick or choosing what to wear is too much.
    Also, this wasn’t a date, this is someone I dated and didn’t work out because he wanted to leave the country, but we remained friends. He never left the country though.
    My dating scene is non existent now, and I have a massive crush on my nutritionist, even thinking of finding a new one because of this.
    Also, getting shit faced drunk is not something I do often, I go out on saturdays but have a beer or two. And that’s about it.

    During my single days, I always liked the Sunday dates especially for first or second dates. Sometimes a Saturday nights date comes across as too much for a first date. Sunday nights aren’t as big a deal but at the same time you’re not harried and stressed from work.

    I’ve sure had some exciting dates in my time. Maybe I should write a book! For now I’ll just pick one at random. I was on a plane to New York and I sat next to this girl, her name was Rosalyn. We hit it off (thanks to my excellent charm. Then again I was single for several decades) and we visited each other a couple times during my trip. The last date I had with her we were at this pasta dinner. She ended up stealing my wallet and almost got away until the cops arrived. Turned out she was a pickpocket! I got my wallet back though and went back to the den of singledom. But hey, that’s life!

    I never got used to after work dates since I’d be so tired, but the Friday or Saturday night dates would also be a bit of a signal for a first date too, because if it went poorly then it’d be a waste of the night. My favourite first date time was an afternoon Saturday date at a bar/restaurant as there were some light libations involved so it’s a little more date-y than coffee (yay daytime drinking). Of course that’s how I met my boyfriend so maybe I’m biased 🙂

    I’m glad you had fun Ale with the past date. I’m sorry about your ex.
