Welcome to my variety channel. In this episode I will be talking about another creative date idea, taken out of my book. Creative dates are awesome. It’s Friday, that means date night! I wrote a book entitled 101 Creative Dates: ideas, tips, and personal experiences from the life of a hopeless romantic. I love creative dates. It is fun to come up with a new idea or put a twist on a classic idea and take a girl out and have fun. I had all kinds of ideas and personal experiences with dating, so I made a book about it and recently published in on Amazon. Don’t let “Netflix and Chill” be the default for your dates! Married, dating someone, single, there is something for everyone!
Creative Date #16: The Questions Game
The questions game is a brilliant get-to-know-you type date and is very simple. It could be over lunch or in the park, or maybe at night on your way to a movie.
The game is simple: each of you takes turns asking each other creative questions in order to get to know them better. I’ve done this on first dates a couple of times, and it works pretty well. You can ask questions like, “What was your favorite cartoon growing up?” or “If you were going to be stranded on an island, what three things would you have with you?” That one is my favorite question to ask; it’s interesting what weird things people say they’ll bring. Other types of questions could be “this or that” questions. For example, “Pancakes or waffles?” Get a little more creative and ask things like, “Cleaning toilets or organizing a sock drawer?” The key is to make sure a new question is asked each time, so if you like their question you can ask them the same one back, but then you still need to ask a new question after.
What you need for this date:
You don’t need anything. This is absolutely free. You could pick your date up and just go for a nice walk around a park or neighborhood and ask the questions. It’s that simple.
My experience with this date:
I’ve done this a few times, and probably the best time I had was years ago during Christmas vacation while in college. I heard there was a group of people meeting up for an activity, so being the enthusiast that I am, I decided to attend. I saw a rather attractive girl with a friend of mine, so I went and introduced myself to her. Her name was Jenny and she happened to be that friend’s new roommate. Nice, lucky me. We seemed to hit it off pretty well during the five minutes of waiting around for the group to show up.
The night’s activity was board games and twister. Being fond of board games I was excited to see how the night’s activities would unfold. I decided to play twister and Jenny thankfully decided to join in. Being the incredibly inflexible person that I am, I lost every time. There were a couple important things I learned that night, however: don’t wear jeans while playing twister, and that Jenny liked to play video games. At the end of the night, I gave her a ride home, since she lived in the same condominium complex as me, and invited her over to test her XBOX skills.
We didn’t play very long, but she wasn’t kidding when she said she liked video games; she could definitely hold her own. Afterward, I suggested the questions game, and we talked into the early morning. She was digging me. We actually dated after that for a little while, but then for some reason it didn’t feel right. I was totally attracted to her, we had a lot in common, but the deep connection was not there. Surface connection, yes, but not the type I was looking for, and she felt the same way in the end. So ultimately it wound up working out for the best.
