If you watch sitcoms (which I do… a lot), you might subscribe to the belief that you cannot, under any circumstances, embarrass yourself on a first date. I do not, however. I believe that you can go right ahead and embarrass the heck out of yourself, because that will give you insight into your potential future husband’s true personality. This is why I think wings are an acceptable first date meal. And that is exactly what happened to both Melissa and Zolt on their first date.
Not only did they both get “horrible food poisoning,” as Melissa puts it, but Zolt nearly ran a red light driving her home. Neither of them made it to school or work the next day, but spent the day laughing about it (from a safe distance, via text message). It may have been wildly uncomfortable, but I call that a successful first date!
I joined Melissa and Zolt at Coffin Ridge Boutique Winery in Meaford, where they were enjoying a glass of wine before their engagement photo session. It doesn’t get much more romantic than this!
