The Five Worst Date Places

Written by Jason OConnor

Continued from page 1

Other places to avoid are eateries where youíre expected to use your hands to feed yourself. A first date doesnít want to watch you maul your barbeque ribs and chicken legs like The Missing Link. No one likesrepparttar thought of being touched later on by greasy fingers. And have you ever eaten corn onrepparttar 132290 cob and come away with clean teeth?

A Family Function I donít know about your family, but a few of my great-aunts have hairy faces. I mean really hairy, with partial beards and hairy moles. One of my uncles thinks heís still living in 1880 and uses every racist expression ever known. So it goes without saying that I never brought dates to family functions. And you shouldnít either. Weddings, reunions, baptisms, bat mitzvahs, and especially funerals, are out.

Thereís no such thing as a family that isnít dysfunctional. It doesnít exist. If you bring a first or second date to a family function be prepared for somebody to embarrass you. Grandma will ask you two when youíre getting married and when to expect great grandchildren. And your little cousin Eunice will promptly tell your date all aboutrepparttar 132291 time you farted in church.

Your Parentís House for Dinner I canít think of a more uncomfortable setting than sitting at a dinner table with complete strangers in their own house. Donít put a date through this torture. You may haverepparttar 132292 hippest parents inrepparttar 132293 world. They may intelligent, hospitable and interesting. But donít subject anyone you just recently met to your parents for an entire dinner.

Oftenrepparttar 132294 parent of your same sex looks like youíre going to look in twenty five years. Youíll find your date sizing up your parent asking themselves whether theyíll be ok with your pot belly and hairy ears a couple of decades from now.

Bringing your date to your parentís house is just asking for trouble. Your mom may temporarily forget that youíre trying to make an impression and start talking to you like youíre thirteen years old again, ďBefore you leave tonight my little muffin, can you take your hemorrhoid ointment out of our medicine cabinet, daddy keeps using it for lip cream by mistake.Ē

Dates can be traumatic and nerve-racking inrepparttar 132295 best of places so donít make it harder on either of you than you have to. There are some great places to take a date that will make you look like a hero, wonít cost you too much, will give you just enough time to talk to each other, but will also provide an entertaining distraction.

Iím talking about museums, jazz shows, rock concerts, musicals, art shows, plays and live comedy. These are all cool places to bring a first or second date. They allow you to talk and be entertained atrepparttar 132296 same time. These types of places makerepparttar 132297 date memorable, distinct and out ofrepparttar 132298 ordinary. It shows you put more than just a little thought inrepparttar 132299 idea. And if youíre trying to get someone to go out with you forrepparttar 132300 first time, find out what kind of bands, shows, comedians or plays they like, buy a couple of tickets, and casually invite them along with an explanation like your buddy just cancelled on you and you have a free ticket that you donít want to waste.

This causes a healthy balance and will attractrepparttar 132300 opposite sex.
