It’s always hard for dates to actually be unique. You go on so many (well, I do anyway!) throughout your life time that they cease to be exciting. Because it is like men have no imagination.
I do understand that dates don’t have to be overly interesting in themselves. It doesn’t particularly matter where you go – whether that be restaurant, bar or anywhere else. As long as the person who you are with, is interesting, that’s the main thing. Everything else is kind of superficial.
But don’t you find the whole going for a meal malarkey, kind of repetitive? You can have too much of a good thing and I am always impressed by anyone who puts a bit of effort into the date, thinking outside the box to discover something that I would enjoy. It’s not completely essential to a good date, but it would definitely give you some brownie points.
The strangest date I have ever been on though was with a guy called Archie at the beginning of last year. It was our first date and in a very gentlemanly fashion, he came to pick me up at my house to escort me to the date. And after he had briefly met my housemates, he took me to his car.
Which was a slight surprise as I thought we were going to the pub and I was never going to condone drinking and driving, even if it was in the name of dating.
I shouldn’t have worried though. Drinking and driving wasn’t in his nature. And actually there was no drinking involved in our date. Just driving.
Yes you read that correctly. Our first date was driving around in a car. That was it.
As first dates go, it was actually pretty good. It puts you in close confines with each other and forces you to talk to each other with no other people or distractions. So if you are confident you have some chemistry, there will be no problems. Plus you can tell a lot from a guy’s car and how he drives. But it isn’t really one I would fully recommend especially if you don’t know your partner that well. There is a distinct possibility of awkward silences.
I doubt any of you have been on a date like that. But what’s the most unique date you have ever been on? And did you enjoy it or would you prefer just to go to a bar and chat?
