    Already on a first date

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    Already on a first date, Nick felt that he and Barbara were on the same wavelength.

    What does that mean? Do you mean "on their (very) first date" instead?

    Re: Already on a first date

    Yes, teechar. I meant to say on their very first date, but I wrongly believed it was enough to write just "a date."

    Re: Already on a first date

    If you want to use "already" in that sentence, put it after "were."

    Re: Already on a first date

    I will repeat my sentence with "teechar's correction as an exercise.

    On their very first date, Nick felt that he and Barbara were already on the same wavelength.
