Turning a Good Date into a Great Date
Whether you are single or in a relationship, setting aside time for a date is the way to connect or re-connect with your partner. It tells the other person that they are special and are worth giving up some of your precious time for each other. Here are some surefire tips to turn a good date into a great date that your partner will enjoy.
It’s all about the Build Up
Like great sex, be sure to include some foreplay leading up to the date. This can consist of a sexy text or email that leaves a little to the imagination. Recently I was asked to bring to a dinner date some figs and creamy blue cheese because they are good finger foods. Could only begin to imagine how that might play out….
Set the Scene
Whether you’re headed to a dance club or a romantic sunset dinner, send your date some pictures of what the scene might look like. We are visual creatures and its fun to begin to imagine ourselves in that picture with our date in tow.
Include a Surprise
Sometimes its fun not to tell your date where you are going but just give them some hints. E.g. I’ll pick you up at 7…be sure to wear something that you can move in.
Create the Mood
A picture is worth a thousand words. Send a funny, cute, or sexy picture of you a day or two before the date. Ask your date to send one back to you.
One of my favorite dates ever was a treasure hunt of sorts where my date kept on texting me clues of where I was meeting him, what I was supposed to bring with me etc. You can bet that the anticipation for that date was huge and the evening was filled with fun, laughter, romance and yumminess, leading to many next dates!
