Spin Cycle: My Ultimate Date

This week's spin cycle topic is fantasy dates, so I'll put my hat in the ring, put my head in that, and do my best hip-hop head spin for you.

When I was young and was first dating, I came up with what I considered the ultimate date:

  1. First I would go out to eat at a fancy restaurant.
  2. Then I would go to see an opera, or professional theater performance
  3. After that, I would go out for a nightcap.

If you look at it, it doesn't seem all that ultimate. What made it ultimate for me is that it is supposed to be what I considered to be high class dating. These are the kinds of things that people you see in classic movies doing. Perhaps I'm a person who likes the 1930's and 40's and the kinds of things that people did in that era seemed high class to me.

Nowadays I wonder if what I considered the ultimate date is more of a fantasy. Let's not get into what constitutes a date, but rather consider the fact that all of these activities are quite expensive individually and even more so combined. Not only that, but considering how much time and energy goes into planning and executing them makes me tired just thinking about it (I guess my age is showing more every day).

I am seriously loving this Spin topic!
I think I could be a product of those days as well, for some reason, when I think of glamorous dates, it usually comes in three courses, dinner, a show, and then drinks (or dessert since I have no head for alcohol). And yes, that can add up to quite the bill. :-)

One's ultimate date might be another one's nightmare?

Sounds about right to me.

Heh. My fantasy date (if I were single, which I'm not *grin*) would be to receive in lieu of a dozen roses... an iPad!

Now that's a sign of the times! hee hee

Funny how my mind went to the same place. Dinner, a show and a nightcap. How classic and 40's. Isn't that what they did in all the movies?

I think it's a perfectly lovely plan!
