Why Dinner Dates Suck
By David Wygant

Why on earth would you take someone out for dinner on a first date . . . unless of course the woman is homeless and she needs a good meal. To sit across from somebody and watch them chew down food while you tell each other the same stories you’ve told a hundred times is boring! It is also a cliché.

The reason why most of us don’t enjoy dating is because we go out on dinner dates. Now granted, having dinner with someone is fantastic when you’re with a person whose company you enjoy and with whom you already have some sort of relationship.

Being forced to sit at a table exchanging resumes with a total stranger is the reason why most of us don’t like to date, but yet we still conduct dinner dates. So what are the alternatives to the boring cliched dinner date?

This is not going to be one of those “Top Ten Things To Do Instead Of A Dinner Date” lists, because I think we have been ‘top 10 listed’ to death on the Internet. Plus it’s really time YOU figured out what you like to do, and also listened to what the person you’re interested in likes to do, so you can come up with clever dates.

For instance, let me tell you some of the things I like to do. By doing that, it will help you so you can make up your own personal list.

• I like to check out new neighborhoods by walking around and checking out the stores. That’s one of my favorite dates.
• I like to do dragio – which is hiking and dragging my lazy dog up the hill. This is a great first date to just talk and enjoy the outdoors.
• I enjoy going to art galleries.
• I like to walk along the beach.
• I enjoy going to fun coffee and tea shops and sampling new teas.

These are some of the things that I enjoy doing. So when I have a first date, I listen to what they like then what I do is make the date fun.

You do this because, if you think about it, when you do get into a relationship with someone you will not spend every evening exchanging resumes over dinner. You’re going to be doing things you both enjoy.

By picking something more interesting than dinner for a first date, you are also giving each other fun things to talk about while you’re shopping together . . . or walking on the beach together . . . or going to Target together. The reason why so many of us don’t like to date is because it is so formal.

Dinner dates are formal and boring. You spend the night evaluating each other, then you come home and you’re evaluating each other some more with your friends. Activity dates are fun and memory building.

So instead of asking all of you to make a list of 50 great dates, I would like to have you share great first date ideas that YOU enjoy . . . and stay on topic today. While I like when you all go off on random tangents, sometimes it’s nice to stay on topic. Today is one of those days.

So now, unless you are dating a homeless person who really needs to be fed, it’s time to get creative in your dating!
