“Excuse me? Tonight you represent every dateless woman in this city, every woman who's about to sit down to a lonely meal of Weight Watchers past primavera she's just nuked in the microwave. Every woman who will get into bed tonight with a book or reruns of Sex and the City as her only companion. You are our shining hope....But no pressure.”
Nora Roberts, High Noon

Kate Morton

Kate Morton, The House at Riverton

“Tanith frowned. Did people still go on DATES any more? She was sure they did. They probably called it something different though. She tried to think of the last date she'd been on. The last PROPER date. Did fighting side by side with Saracen Rue count as a date? They ended up snuggling under the moonlight, drenched in gore and pieces of brain - so it had PROBABLY been a date. If it wasn't, it was certainly a fun time had by all. Well, not ALL. But she and Saracen had sure had a blast.”
Derek Landy, Mortal Coil

“Nellie grinned. "I always wanted to go to Venice. It's supposed to be the romance capital of the world."

Gordon Korman, One False Note

Nora Roberts
“You need a place just a click over middle range. Don’t want to go all-out first time, but you don’t want to run on the cheap either. You want atmosphere, but not stuffy. A nice established place.”

“This is all ammunition, Cart. All ammo. You want to be able to order a nice bottle of wine. Oh, and after dinner, if she says how she doesn’t want dessert, you suggest she pick one and you’ll split it. Women love that. Sharing dessert’s sexy. Do not go on and on about your job over dinner. Certain death. Get her to talk about hers, and what she likes to do. Then—”

“Should I be writing this down?”
Nora Roberts, Vision in White

Nora Roberts
“If it winds up earlier, you should have a movie picked out. This is assuming she isn’t sending you the ‘let’s go back to my place’ signals. In that case—”

Richelle Mead
“Where are you guys getting all of this?" I asked. "What does it matter if I - oh come on."
We'd reached the lobby and found Eddie and Micah sitting on a bench together. They at least had the decency to look embarrassed.
"Not you guys too," I said.
"I was just here to see Jill," said Micah unconvincingly.
"And I was here to, um..." Eddie faltered, and I held up a hand to stop him.”
Richelle Mead, The Golden Lily

Patrick Carman

Laney Smith
“He firmly pulled her body against his and he brushed her lips with his. Staring into her eyes, he lightly slid his tongue across her bottom lip. She drew a deep, staggered breath in response to the wave of heat she felt flushing through her. Derrick smiled at her. Then, he softly kissed her. He lightly swept his tongue between her lips, pressing his warm, soft lips to hers. He slid his hands up her body and cradled her face with his hands. Then, he passionately kissed her, tickling her tongue with his. He sucked her lips, gently, as though he was sampling nectar on a delicate petal. Then, with an intense urgency, he dipped his tongue past her lips, caressing her tongue with his. She felt fluttering inside. Anne’s body craved him. A shallow hum escaped from within her in response to how he was making her feel. She could feel his body responding to her. He was breathing heavier which was waking Anne’s primal needs. The tidal wave of lust that had just churned within her was slowly calming as his kiss became more subtle and tender. He gently pressed his lips against hers. He pulled back a little and looked away, exhaling.”
Laney Smith, Lock Creek: One Year's Time

John Green
“I am concussed,' I announced, entirely sure of my self-diagnosis.
''You're fine,' Takumi said as he jogged back towards me. ''Let's get out of here before we're killed.''
''I'm sorry,' I said. ''But I can't get up. I have suffered a mild concussion.''
Lara ran out and sat down next to me.
''Are you OK?''
''I am concussed,'' I said.
Takumi sat down with me and looked me in the eye. ''Do you know what happened to you?''
''The beast got me.''
''Do you know where you are?''
''I'm on a triple-and-a-half date.''
''You're fine,'' Takumi said. ''Let's go.''
And then I leaned forward and threw up on Lara's pants.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

Neil Gaiman
“Scuse me,” said a small and hairy voice in his ear, “but would you mind dreamin’ a bit quieter? Your dreams is spillin’ over into my dreams, and if there’s one thing I’ve never been doin’ with, it’s dates. William the Conker, ten sixty-six, that’s as far as I go, and I’d swap that for a dancing mouse.”

Donald Thomas, Villains' Paradise: A History of Britain's Underworld

B.J. Novak
“What needed to stop was the succession of dates with these relatively impressive, relatively interesting people, when I could tell from the first minute that everyone here was going to end as a runner-up in a long race to nowhere in particular, broken-down, exhausted, no one wearing a medal.”
B.J. Novak, One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories

“Here I am once again
Holding my pen while it’s going all dry
With no stories there to write
Nor remarkable dates for me to scratch
And it scares the hell out of me the way my soul became so numb
That all my papers turn into blanks …”
Samiha Totanji

E.A. Bucchianeri
“Finally, Charlie gave up the hunt and placed (the puppy) back on the floor, dispatching fleas was not his idea of a romantic evening, unless you happened to be a twisted exterminator, he thought.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly,

E.A. Bucchianeri
“What was that? Valentine's Day? Her heart gave a little skip at the thought, she had never spent it in a romantic way before, usually the day meant sending and receiving cute Cupid cards and heart shaped sugar candies, but it was all in a platonic celebration of friendship. This time, it would not be like that, it would be ... special.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly,

Nikki Ashton
“Is seven-thirty okay?”

Was seven-thirty okay? Fuck yeah!

“Okay, seven-thirty it is then.”

“Oh shit, I said that out loud didn’t I?”

“Yeah, darlin’ you did.” Dex let out his rumbling laugh again. “But something you should know, Katie.”


“I’m just as eager to see you too.”

It was at that point I did a little jig on the spot.”
Nikki Ashton, Pelvic Flaws

Steven Magee

Nikki Giovanni
“The main advantage about being over thirty is you no longer have to pretend you have a date on Friday night or even, lo and behold, that you want one. You can now easily say to yourself, "I hope no one wants to ask me to do anything because I am so looking forward to a hot tub and a midnight snack.”
Nikki Giovanni, Acolytes

“I remember things like dates down to minutes, what they smelled like, how they walked and how they tug their hands in their pockets. I twine myself in nostalgia of moments and not necessarily the people in them. I long for the idea of the past and occasionally forget the present. I find myself lost in memories, just looking to recreate the moment; forgetting the past is in the past and what we have is now.”
Dominic Riccitello

Maureen Johnson
“Did you ask people to crime scenes on dates?”
Maureen Johnson, The Name of the Star
