Day 9 is actually Take a Woman on a Date day, but since I’m flipping this all around for my particular orientation and I fall into the ‘in a relationship’ category, I’m going to be planning a date for my significant other. Since he reads this, I can’t tell you the ideas I’ve come up with, and anyway they’re terrible. It’s like I’ve never planned a date before. But I have! Loads! Okay, at least three.
Anyhow, I’m taking suggestions. No sexy parties, please, my brother reads this.
While I’m encouraging comments, what do you think about dating in a relationship? I don’t mean open relationships, though I’m happy to hear opinions on that, I mean actually making sure that you manage to get out of the house with your significant other and, as AoM says, “Ditch the whole pizza and Netflix routine and really get out and do something new and different.”
Because really, the siren song of pizza and Netflix is crazy loud.
As much as I sometimes cringe at the idea of Date Nights, I get it. You need to make sure you do stuff together. Otherwise you’ll just get old and sick of each other and not have any new stories to tell, and you’ll turn into some new-generation version of Archie Bunker. “Eeeedith! Get those hoverboard hippies off my lawn!”
So, to sum up:
Dates with significant others? And-
Date ideas for me?
I think in the spirit of this one, I’m going to end with my favourite real love song, which I stole from a friend’s wedding mix, because otherwise my favourite love song would still be the theme song from ‘Enterprise’.
Oh, okay. I’ll put them both. Stop nagging.
The very best is Shine, by Daniel Lanois. This will give you mosquito-eyes.
Oh! They added the lyrics below the video! Bonus.
And since you asked:
You guys, I hope you appreciate how long it took me to find one that the fanboys hadn’t managed to make even more cheesy.
Over to you, and tomorrow, on to Day 10: Memorize ‘If’. (Shit.)
