Date Ideas

Something Simple

Emma Merkas Swinger

What do you do when things don’t go to plan?

We’re up to the final letter in our ABC’s of dating, it’s the Z date! I’ve been wanting to take Emma to a Zen Meditation group. Meditation as a couple doesn’t get highly rated on $30 Date Night – nor should it… it sounds terrible!!! Which is exactly why I want to do it!

I find that people rate things according to what they “think” would be a fun date idea, rather then going out and actually experiencing it. I love trying the poorly rated date ideas just to see if the masses have got it wrong! Personally, my initial reaction to the meditation date idea rated poorly in my head, but lately I been very much looking forward to taking 2 hours out of my day to zone out and not think about anything at all.

Tuesday was the day – but, alas… like almost every other day I seem to be having… something has come up. This “thing” ran over time which meant that we wouldn’t make it to the Z date – and now pushes that date idea back by 4 weeks! D’oh!!!

So what to do instead… we pared it back. Stripped the excitement out of doing something different and stuck with a known goodie. Fish n chips by the beach. The food was nothing to write about, so I won’t. But the company, the conversation, the glorious weather and Elwood Beach was more than enough to make such an easy date idea an awesome few hours with my chicken.

Tell us about your favourite fish n chip shop? And the place you would go to eat your take out?

To get you started – I’m a fan of Hunky Dory in Port Melbourne for fish n chips… and maybe should have taken Emma there to grab our food. Or maybe we should have researched Elwood a little better.

    I’m clearly all grown up now – three minutes on that swing and I got motion sickness!

    Great date night. Simple and sweet.
