Draws dating dinner
Instead of providing you with stories about how to endure dating someone who could care less about academia, I abandoned ship.I may have let you all down, but maybe I’m validating our own strange elitism.
But here’s the kicker — dinner & a movie is totally played out.
Video game arcade date This isn’t always a perfect match, especially when it comes to girls in high heels & those weird shoot-em-up zombie games. (How impressed would you be by a drop-dead gorgeous girl kicking immense zombie butt, though? Take props, maybe a silly wig or two, & see how bizarre you can make them. Build sandcastles, put sunscreen lotion on one another, go swimming & then travel home together as the sun is setting, relaxed & happy. It helped that he was cute & a good storyteller, but still, it could work.
Go & listen to jazz Aka, pretend to be sophisticated. Take cameras & explore an abandoned place An excellent opportunity to be artsy-fartsy, or if you like to be on the other side of the camera, get them to take photos of you pulling your most beautifulest face!
Medieval Times Oh geez, does this need any explanation? Eating with your hands, handsome knights, silly hats? “First date” night This one works best if it’s not your actual first date.
Like, for example, you’ve been together for 3 years & live in the same house.
It could be amazing; it could be completely hellish — you won’t know until you go! It’ll cheer up your (or their) apartment, give you a visual reminder of them (assuming the date goes well), & maybe you could even go ice-skating afterwards. The Sunday New York Times crossword date Bonus: intellectual stimulation, nerd points & you get to find out how clever they really are, all in one fell swoop. Older people, I have learned, sometimes feel motion sick on swings. A drive-in movie I admit, this one seems ultra-cool to me just because I’ve never done it & I am in love with Danny Zucco from here until eternity. Plus, people will come up to you & say, “Cute dog”, & you can beam at each other like proud parents. Plus, usually in my experience, a day-glo private room & weird drinks are part of the package. Collaborative art date Get a canvas or even just a big piece of paper, some paint, pencils or pastels, & go nuts.
