This time of the year is great Single Parent dating time. It really is. The holidays are so much fun. In this article, I talk about why this is your best dating time of the year, and I also give you some amazing date ideas. You will be an instant hit by choosing these kind of dates. Enjoy!
Friday is Black Friday. I can’t believe it. It’s the day that people get up at midnight (or don’t even actually go to sleep, since some stores have their sales begin at midnight).
It is the day where you can get up at 4:00 a.m. and get in line for a plasma television that is being sold for $179.95. They probably only have one, and you will have to wait in line for three hours to hopefully be the one person who is able to run and grab it first.
I don’t suggest dating on Black Friday. It’s not the best day in the world to go out on a date. The first date is not a good time to let someone see that you really are an animal when it comes down to buying an iPod for $1.00.
Dating during the holiday season, though, I think is really cool. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house we go . . . and all that fun stuff.
One of my favorite Thanksgiving memories was from when I in my 20s living in New York City. Wednesday night (before Thanksgiving) was the big night when all the floats and big balloon characters were being blown up on Columbus Avenue.
So we would go get drunk, walk around and check out the floats as they were blowing them up. It seemed like they would work on those floats all night long. It was a lot of fun.
Doing things like that reminds me of some great date ideas. This time of the year during the holiday season is such a great time to go out on dates. It really is.
The holidays are so much fun.
A great date idea is literally to go window shopping. Walk around your city or town, or go to the mall, and check out all the great holiday displays. Places go all out on their displays during this time of year.
One of my favorite things to do on this date is to play a game. At every window at which you look, have each of you say what you would pick in the window if you could have (or if you had to take) one thing displayed there. Have fun with it. It’s also a great way to find out a lot about the other person’s personality.
I always say on of the best dates is just a date that you don’t have to sit there and do the face-to-face resume swapping. Who really wants to resume swap on a date?
Really, what a lot of dates end of up being is a resume swap. “In the year 2002 I kissed Tom Williams, a guy I was dating for six months, for the first time. Tom and I broke up eight months later.” Women talk this way on boring first date dinner resume swapping dates. Men do it too.
Especially during this time of the year, I really believe that you can actually have a lot more fun on your dates by being creative. Being creative with your dates ideas allows both people on a date to be more relaxed, and allows both of you to learn a lot more about each other.
Creative dates also tend to be more fun, relaxing and laid back. You will be an instant hit by choosing these kind of dates.
In today’s podcast, I go even deeper into how to date during the holidays and give a lot of great suggestions for fun holiday dates.
