I’ve tried to curate the perfect date in the past, and I got pretty close. But I guess I’m just too old-fashioned – I enjoy a man who knows how to coordinate it on his own. And thankfully, I know someone who does it really well.
In big cities like LA, where the hustle and bustle sometimes inconveniences the driver, we’re tempted to meet our date in the middle or at the place of the actual date. That’s completely fine for city dwellers but you gotta change it up sometimes.
Instead, drive to her place and pick her up. For girly girls like myself, getting all dolled up is all part of the date itself. And to see your date’s reaction of how pretty you look in the privacy of your own space is something you just can’t enjoy when you meet up at a public place.
Show that you thought about him/her while you were apart. Maybe it was a long holiday and you were with your own families. Maybe it was a long work trip and you hadn’t seen each other in weeks. Whatever the reason for the absence, why not curate a playlist of songs that remind you of her and play it during the drive? Or maybe pick up some earrings that might match the outfit she’s wearing for the date? Sorry for the cliche, but it’s the thought that counts – absolutely.
Surprise her with a detour to a place she’s been wanting to go to, like a museum exhibit or a hilltop where you can enjoy the stars and talk. Again, the thought put into planning this detour is entirely romantic and is what really counts. She’ll enjoy whatever the detour is because she’ll know how much thought you’ve put into it.
Feed her and yourself. Simple enough.
Enjoy each other’s company, whatever and wherever the final destination is. Appreciate that you are spending time with someone who truly enjoys spending it with you, doing something you mutually enjoy.
I’ll keep that open-ended for you to figure out…
