I like dating. The best kinds of dates are the ones where you and the other person find a connection through your activity. I often dislike going to movies (unless we Netflix one, but that in my opinion is more of a hangout than a date) and whereas I am a traditional man who likes to suit up and wine and dine a woman, I try to go for other things like late night bowling or going to random bars or coffee shops and people watching, or even picnics.
Even if there isn't any romantic connection, it can be quite fun to meet new people, and that is something I definitely don't regret. And even if something goes wrong on a date, I can somehow make it turn around into a funny moment that you will end up laughing about by the end of the night.
One of the best ideas I had for a date was going to a hookah bar, and just chilling. Another one was going to a place that was a huge arcade/laser tag/go kart/bumper car arena. Both women thoroughly enjoyed themselves, seeing as one was the laid back type, and the other was a nerdy type, respectively.
People consider dating today as "stressful," but usually those people are just lazy and selfish...think about it, someone is interested in you so much, that they set aside a time to be with you, and made plans that they hope you enjoy. I would consider that an honor, because time is such a precious thing.
And for those who flake out on dates, I think they are doing to the other person a great disrespect, because the are essentially showing that they are too important to spend time and thought that someone else is spending, to honor them with at least a simple rejection.
But for the most part, despite the cynical things I say, I enjoy dating women, from planning, to the kiss goodnight.
Don't you love dating?
