Lunch Date or Date-Date?

A fundraiser in Denver is auctioning off a "date" with actress Jessica Biel. The cause is for a girl who lost her leg in a prom-night limo accident.

An honest-to-goodness date with a B-grade movie starlet? AP reports:

"The event dubbed 'Mollypalooza' to help Molly Bloom's family with medical expenses is scheduled for Tuesday at the Rock Island Club, organizers told The Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News. The News described the date as a lunch date.


"'Come on, it's Jessica Biel. What guy wouldn't want to win a date with her?' said Dmitri Lee Natali, 19, a friend and former classmate of Bloom, 18, who lost a leg in the May 13 accident. 'My mom happened to be able to contact (Biel's) parents, and they had heard about Molly's tragedy. They said "yeah, I bet she'll do that."'"

A lunch date? Does that count as a real gotta-listen-to-what-she-has-to-say-and-pick-up-the-check date-date?

As lunch was the first time that I went out with my future wife, Mrs. Chase and I have long disagreed about whether a lunch date constitutes a date-date.

She says yes. I say no; a bona fide date-date, it seems to me, can only be defined as such if there is a realistic, if remote, possibility of nookie at the event's conclusion. And unless your name is Tabitha, your baby's daddy is in prison and you make a living by sliding down poles, chances are that a lunch date, despite your escort's best efforts, will not culminate in a nooner.

I dunno. Maybe I'm wrong.

At any rate, I'm willing to pay good money for a lunch date with Jessica Biel. But don't you fret, dear wife: It's for the children.

Poor Jessica Biel: Another dateless lunch

Definitely a date. Because if it was me and George Clooney arriving at a hot dog vendor at the same time, I would call that a date too.

I have to agree with Mrs. Chase (and Monty). My first date with my current husband was a lunch date. Our second date was on Valentine's Day; I think it would be strange to call that our first date. You're eating or drinking-- you're dating. Besides I always go by the date of our lunch date when I add up the years we've been together (15 if you're wondering).

Until I saw the picture I read most of this post thinking you were writing about Jennifer Beals. I think Jennifer would have made a more interesting lunch date with a higher potential of becoming a date-date.

My first date with my husband was antique shopping. It had to be a day date because I worked nights, but we both still count it as a date-date. Probably because I totally put out in the back of a dusty flea market that afternoon.

Darling, I had no idea that THAT was why you thought a lunch date wasn't a real date.

Any paid-for date isn't a date, in my book, and that would include what you, it appears, might call a "date" with a hooker, no matter what time of day.

I love you!!!!!

I'd give an arm and a leg to win this contest.

Juding from that picture of Ms. Biel, she apparently has not had many lunch or dinner dates, or lunches or dinners for that matter.

She looks like she taking a crap from all her laxatives.

If your man is pushing you away and acting distant

Or if the guy you’re after isn’t giving you the time of day...

Then it’s time to pull out all the stops.

Because 99% of the time, there is only 1 thing you can say to a standoffish guy that will grab him by the heartstrings-

And get his blood pumping at just the thought of you.

Insert subject line here and link it to: <=========> Your ex won’t be able to resist?

Once you say this to him, or even send this simple phrase in a text message...

It will flip his world upside down and you will suddenly find him chasing you-

And even begging to be with you.

Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> Is your man hiding something? He may need your help?

Thanks again.
