5 First Date Stories From the Stars

Do you remember your first date with your significant other? Maybe it was memorable -- or maybe it wasn't. Either way, it was a special moment in your life -- and in theirs! 

From Bella Thorne to Freddie Prinze Jr., these five stars share their cute (and not-so-cute) first date stories: 

1. Bella Thorne & Tristan Klier

Bella Thorne lived through every teenage girl's nightmare: she got her period while on her first date with now-boyfriend Tristan Klier

“I was on a date with my soon-to-be boyfriend,” Thorne said. “I was wearing a white-colored dress -- all white. So my mom was like, ‘Let’s not say anything, I’m just going to take you to Target.’"

"I ended up getting really upset, because he does notice and he’s like, ‘Oh, it’s fine, who cares!’ I was like ‘I CARE!’, and I started bawling in Target!” Thorne explained. “Then I changed, and the outfit was ugly. I was mad, because I didn’t look good on our date!”

The horrifying first date didn't put a damper on the blossoming relationship. Bella and Tristan have been going strong for over two years. 


2. Freddie Prinze Jr. & Sarah Michelle Gellar

Freddie Prinze Jr. loves a woman who can eat -- and that’s one of the reasons he was so attracted to his wife, Sarah Michelle Gellar, on their first date. 

Apparently, the actor used a “food test” to sift through potential girlfriends. He would take them to his favorite restaurant to see how many courses they got through. The number of courses eaten determined the number of future dates! Sounds crazy, right? Apparently, it worked. “Sarah made it through all eight courses and ate everything -- so I married her,” he said. 


3. Jessica Alba & Cash Warren

Jessica Alba was so smitten with Cash Warren that she scrambled to find a way to spend more time with him on their first date. “The first day I spent with my husband, we were just friends,” she said. “We went on a bike ride, [and] I just came up with anything so we could spent time together.”

Her solution? Candy. “I was like, ‘Wanna go get some licorice at the 7/11?’” she said. “It evolved into something more. I met my best friend, and that was a great day.”


4. Salma Hayek & Francois-Henri Pinault

Salma Hayek’s romance with now-husband, François-Henri Pinault, got off to a rough start. “My first date with my husband started badly,” she said. “I didn’t know it was a date. I thought I was going to an event, and then there was one person at it. I was set up by friends to think I was going to an event, because they knew I wouldn’t go on a date! I was angry. And he didn’t know, because he thought I knew he was coming just to meet him. I started out really badly, but, as you can see, it ended happy.”

 


5. Selena Gomez & Nick Jonas

Selena Gomez and Nick Jonas were the most adorable Disney couple of all time, and their first date story proves it. 

“I had dinner on the beach... and there were lights on the palm trees! Then, [we] went walking on the beach, and after that we slowed danced,” Gomez dished. “While we were slow dancing, [we] had our first kiss.”

Sigh. Teenagers are so romantic. Unfortunately, the spark didn't last. These two parted ways in 2010.
