Anonymous said: Mistress Manners, I am going on a first date with a friend who I've liked for a while this coming Friday - we're going to dinner but he won't say where! He knows I'm gothy and is completely fine with it (he is not a goth himself but rather a metalhead)... Have you any suggestions? The lack of information is driving me insane.
Aww, congratulations on your date! I hope you have a lovely time.
Ask your friend that you understand that he’s planned the location as a surprise, but you need at least a tiny bit of information so you can dress appropriately for whatever might be planned.
