Hello everyone! I have a first date with a very nice girl from my office this week (we're in very different departments 6 floors apart, so the co-worker part is not an issue). Here is the situation. She lives on the very far north edge of town, and I live much further south. Our office happens to be the halfway point.
Our date is after work this Wednesday. She has asked me to show her some things to do on the south side of town as our office will be moving there later this summer and she is unfamiliar with the area. As such, I am thinking of suggesting that we simply head that direction after work and that I can bring her back to her car (at the office, the halfway point) afterwards. This is purely logic on my part, but I know it's slightly outside of usual first date etiquette.
Am I correct that the traditional option would be allowing her to go home after work, freshen up, drive to her, pick her up, have the date 40 minutes away, and then drive her home? With work not ending till 5 PM, I just don't think there's enough time in the evening for that. But I don't want to only take her halfway home after the date, even if her car is there, if that would be rude or improper.
I would appreciate your input!
