"What are some good, out of the box date ideas?"
- Question submitted by Anonymous
Picnics are super fun. AND IT’S COOL BECAUSE you can do them anywhere, drive to somewhere an hour away that’s pretty or cool or super weird and pop your trunk open, take a seat and enjoy the view.
Drive-in movies. You guys, they don’t really exist anymore, but my friend in THE OC #dontworryaboutit just opened one up SEE and i’ve been obsessively thinking about them… it’s like… take a 2 – 3 hour road trip to the closest one, you get tons of hang out road time, cuddles in the car, an awesome movie date, and you’re doing something so fucking cute and, like you said, OUT OF THE BOX.
Take a CLASS. It sounds so lame, but nothing is cuter than learning to cook soufflé, or dancing to salsa music, or doing magic tricks… seriously you guys. Memories for life and you get to be stupid around each other for like 2 hours straight.
Everyone is Gay Webcast Marathon. Drink (tea) every time Kristin thinks I’m hilarious.
L Word Marathon. Drink (lemonade) every time Shane makes a stupid decision.
Line the hallway with teddy bears. IT’S HILARIOUS. IT’S CUTE. IT WILL LEAD TO MAKE OUT SESSIONS.
One of these days I am going to have Dannielle film a video of herself lining her hallway with teddy bears. I swear.
Scavenger Hunt. Each of you pick three to seven items, combine them into a list, and comb your city/state/whatever until you’ve taken a snapshot of you both with each item. THEN MAKE A COLLAGE OF YOUR SCAVENGER HUNT FINDS FOR EXTRA ROMANCE.
Museums. I’m sure some of you groaned and were like UGH MUSEUMS WHY SNORE SNORE SNORE, but museums are flipping awesome you guys. Usually they don’t cost very much, and there are so many things to learn and explore and UGH I LOVE MUSEUMS. There is even a museum of sex, so like… there’s just so much to do in this world, you know?
Video arcade. Listen… getting a barrel of quarters and spending the day racing video game cars and playing ski-ball and buying plastic toys with ribbons of tickets is pretty much my idea of the best date on the planet. So. BOOM.
Hiking. I just got back from my first ever camping trip and everyone was like, “Oh boy, Kristin camping WON’T THAT BE SILLY,” but TURNS OUT I AM A REALLY GOOD CAMPER EVERYONE. We found trails that were in the area and went on some amazing hikes and like, a) it was challenging, b) it was gorgeous, and c) if I was on a date I would have totally made out in the woods and it would have been awesome.
L Word Marathon. Every time Jenny does something annoying drink (iced tea).
