  1. Yeah, I’m hoping for no heartbreak but, since this is her first ever date, odds are great that she will wind up seeing other people before she settles down.

  2. It’s only a first date so her probability of fun is more than 50%. She can worry about heartbreak after a few more. You are right. You never know.

  3. I’m so happy I started dating in the desert boots and faded jeans era–no self-respecting hippie boy I knew would have taken a girl in high heels anywhere… Fun post!

    1. I sort of do, but to be honest I probably wouldn’t on a first date. I struggle with nerves anyway, and have never been the most graceful of girls …. The risk of broken neck/ankle/arm/insert bone name here would be much increased!

  4. In such a short piece, your phrasing really works here. I love the three probabilities, and the word “incalculable” is perfect, both for the prompt and for the situation. Nicely done!
