#MicroblogMondays 17: First Date Selfie
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
Apparently, first date selfies are a “thing.” As in, kids today are taking a picture together on their first date and posting it to Instagram with the tag #firstdateselfie.
It took me many months to work up the courage to take a picture with Josh. I mean, taking a picture together — that was serious shit. You didn’t just take a picture with someone you had just started dating. Telling someone that you wanted a picture of them meant something. It meant you wanted to show your friends what the person looked like. It meant you wanted to look at a picture of them when you were apart.
I mean, I wanted a picture on the first date, but I would have never had the guts to take a picture.
The technology certainly existed back then — I had a point-and-shoot camera with film in my purse at all times — but I would have never had the guts to suggest taking a picture together on our first date.
What about you? I think we would all want the picture in retrospect, but would you have the courage to ask to take one?
