The #1 date in the U.S. (and probably many other
places all over the world) is dinner and a movie. No
wonder our divorce/break-up rate is so high in the U.S.
Simply put, that is just about the worst date possible for a couple!
Think about it for a minute , for 2 hours you are letting a screen
entertain you and you have zero communication
with your mate. On top of all of that the magic of movie
making creates some very unrealistic scenarios that just don't happen
in the real world. Itsets you up to see your real life as “boring”.
Why movie and a dinner date suck
While a movie might spark some decent discussion,
there are far better date ideas that will bring up far
more meaningful conversation.
One of the chief problems with the dinner/movie
scenario is the regularity of it. Even with lovemaking,
if you do the exact same thing every time — it
becomes a bit BLAH!
If you spice up your dating (1st date or 1000th date)
your relationship will be fresh, exciting and full of fun.
==> Michael Webb's famous date ideas
Not too long ago I came across Michael Webb. He
was invited by Oprah to be on her show a few years back
because he is one of the world's top experts on helping
couples create and keep romance in their relationships.
A great date idea that I borrowed from Michael was to
have a date making homemade ice cream from scratch.
We found a good recipe and went shopping for the
ingredients. We also bought some fun toppings – candy
bars we could chop up and fresh fruit. We went home
and had great conversation while we were making it
and eating it. We both agreed it was FAR BETTER than
a movie/dinner (and so much cheaper).
Michael has compiled over 300 really creative date ideas
(most costing $20 or less).
