Ryan Reynolds’ First Date With Blake Lively Was Super Awks

Come on, we’ve all had our fair share of AWFUL first dates, right? 

But looking at Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, you’d struggle to believe that their first romantic evening together was anything but perfect. 


We mean, you just have to see the way Ryan looks at her. ALL the feels. 

As it turns out, their chemistry was pretty undeniable from the get-go. And that’s what the big problem was come first date night. 

But WHY, we hear you cry. 


Speaking to SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly, Ryan spilled the beans. 

Telling the story of how they got together, the Deadpool actor said, ‘About a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and we were both single, we went on a double date.

She was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl – and it was like the most awkward date for the respective parties because we were just like fireworks coming across.’



After being friends for so long, it was great for them. But we would not want to have been one of the other two people on that date.

Just goes to show though, once you meet the right person… That’s it.
