ooooo-kay… so I scrapped my first draft of our chicken parma date idea. It was written, complete and ready to go live, but in essence my review sucked because the date sucked! Which opened up the question:
Should you have a backup plan if the initial date turns out to be a flop?
So what went wrong? www.parma.com.au voted the Lionel Hotel as the top place to eat a chicken parma in Melbourne’s CBD, so that’s where we went for date night. Now I don’t mind a good parma, Emma on the other hand does not! Can you can see where this date is headed already? Emma didn’t have fun and this rubbed off on me. Date night is no fun when your date is not enjoying themselves.
Now I’m not angry, and not saying that Emma’s mood ruined my night. In hindsight, this was a night out for the boys, not a night with your date, unless of course your date barracks for Collingwood or Oakland Raiders.
And so, at the end of the night Emma put forth a notion… “we should have a backup plan just in case the original date sucked!”
I believe that you need to have low points to appreciate the highs. Emma believes that every date should be amazing. But let’s be realistic, it’s impossible to make EVERY date idea amazing. There are too many variables for things to go wrong, and what if your second idea sucks too! What if the 3rd or 4th date idea sucks as well! Who needs that kind of pressure for date night?
I think we need to learn from the experience. If it flopped, so what – it’s still better than doing the same thing you did last night… watch tv until it’s bed time. You can always do better next week.
What’s your thoughts? Do you want to see fireworks for every date night? And if yes, can you handle the responsibility of making sure your date has the most amazing time ever!
