Share Your Story

Now that you’ve found us, please tell us your first date story.

First Date Stories welcomes written first date stories for publication on this website. First Date Stories accepts pitches for original 400 to 800-word personal essays, listicles and reported pieces related to the topic of women in midlife preparing for, and going on first dates, as well as on the topic of self-care. We do not publish poetry or fiction.

Not a writer? Not a problem. We’ve got an audio option called First Date Shorts! You record a one minute recap of a memorable first date and we might share it on social media and on our website so that women everywhere can hear your story. 

Let us know a bit about you and the content you’d like to submit by completing the form below. Please allow up to two weeks for our small team to process your submissions. We will notify you if we’d like to proceed with an interview or pitch. Thank you.
