College Dating Rule #2: Dating is kind of like cooking. That’s why you should never ever watch or date Rachel Ray.
Good food starts with good ingredients. So a good date starts with good people. If you go on a date with someone, you should probably like him/her (and he/she should like you). Pity dates are NOT a good idea.
Fresh ingredients are a must! A good date is one that you haven’t had before. Don’t get stuck in a rut going to the same places and doing the same things. You’re in college! You can do whatever you want. Go to the museum or the zoo, stay in and play board games, or go out to an 18+ club. Make a list of all the awesome places you want to go or things you want to do with your bf/gf. Seriously, do it right now. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a S.O. yet. It never hurts to be prepared.
Add a dash of spontaneity. Make stuff up. Ash and I were just walking around, when we came across a CVS. I dragged him inside to browse, and we wound up buying chalk and a squishy dinosaur toy. We then proceeded to draw a penguin, our Engineering professor and an epic battle between a t-Rex and a unicorn on the sidewalk in front of our dorm.
Follow the recipe. Okay, so this kind of contradicts the last statement, but you need to have a general idea of where you’re going and what you’re doing before you leave for a date. Make sure the restaurant you’re going to takes credit cards or see what time the conservatory closes. Check the weather and dress appropriately: a cold date is not a happy date.
Add a stick of butter. Butter makes everything taste delicious.
As for the latest Ash-Faye (Faysh? Shaye?) news—I have officially seen Ash without a shirt on. That’s right, we actually did it. Yup, we finally checked out the recreational pool on campus. What were you thinking I was talking about?
Anyway, Ash works out like crazy, and all his hard work definitely pays off. My boyfriend is jacked!
Couple Crush of the Week
This week’s couple crush is Ken and Barbie (real people, not dolls). Ken and Barbie have been dating for over 2 years. That’s 14 in dog years and forever in high school/college years. Their story might even beat Ash and mine’s on the aww-o-meter. Barbie transferred to Ken’s school sophomore year and fell in love with him. Ken, on the other hand, thought Barbie was annoying and immature. Then came junior year and with it, junior prom. Ken asked a girl he liked and she said yes, but something came up and she couldn’t go. So Ken asked Barbie as his back-up plan and she jumped at the opportunity. They had an amazing time, and eventually started going out. Now they’re both Bio. engineers at the same college, and are incredibly adorable together. The cutest part: Ken’s planning on marrying Barbie someday. AWW! And it just goes to show you, first impressions aren't necessarily the right impressions!
That’s it for this week! Let me know what you want to read about next!
Until next week,
Have you ever had to change your first impression?
