50 First Dates online free

She was told 50 first dates was the key to relationship success. He was No. 98.

Molly Wilkinson was once told that you need to go on at least 50 first dates to know exactly what you want out of a relationship.

So Molly began going on dates — and compiling a list. She would jot down the names of memorable ones. For others, a quick note of a distinctive feature, such as “the one with the weird hair, ” would suffice. Some were identified simply by location or clothing, such as the gentleman from the bar or “the guy with the Members Only jacket.”

Robert Horne, she estimates, was date No. 98.

The pair were introduced through the dating site
eHarmony in 2014. Robert, 42, a former Capitol Hill staffer and now a health-care consultant for Horizon Government Affairs, stumbled across Molly’s online profile that April and made the first move.

Molly, 38, a Sylvan Learning STEM program product manager, had joined the dating site two months earlier when she moved to Baltimore after 12 years of living and dating in New York.

One of the first things Molly noticed and appreciated about Robert was that his messages were well written, sans spelling errors, and had proper punctuation. More important, however, he asked the right questions — “the questions that I was looking for, ” she says — about her family, morals and values.

But after several weeks of steady messages, Robert became disenchanted, albeit briefly, with the idea of meeting his future partner online.

“I got to a point where I started to think that it wasn’t going to happen and that was okay, ” he says. “I decided that if it came down to marrying the wrong person or not marrying the right person, I would choose the latter.”

So he took a short break from eHarmony and online dating in general. As Molly recalls, “He just fell off the face of the Earth.”

But a few months later, Robert returned to the site to try again. “My mind-set was . . . if it doesn’t work, that’s okay, but at least I’ve checked that box, ” he says.

Molly was surprised, yet pleased, to hear from him again. They renewed their correspondence and soon planned a date to a Washington Nationals baseball game Aug. 16.

It was only after Robert had invited Molly to the Nats game, suggesting he already had tickets, that he discovered it was sold out, save for a few pricey seats, because of a free postgame concert by Martina McBride.

But having already arranged the date, he tracked down two suite tickets — for $250 each.

“Working on the Hill wasn’t glamorous — I wasn’t there to make my millions — so it hurt a little bit, I’m not going to lie, ” Robert says of the ticket purchase.

Molly drove in from Baltimore and met him near the entrance of the old Bullpen, an outdoor area next to the stadium with bars, food trucks, picnic tables and games.

“Walking up, I thought, ‘Oh, no, what if he’s wearing jean shorts or . . . a fanny pack or something, ” Molly says jokingly. Luckily, he wasn’t. They hit it off immediately, and both describe that first date as comfortable, easy and enjoyable.

“It felt like we had been dating for a long time and we were just going to the game to enjoy it together, ” Robert says. “It didn’t feel like a first date.”
