So .. I was thinking..
What constitutes a great date to you?
Ultimately it has to be the company... right?
In the right company you could be anyplace, (Not A&E of course!) at anytime, and feel filled with joy, and totally at ease.
I remember, awhile back, someone saying to me something along the lines of feeling attachment to others being wrong. I realize however, that they simply spoke out of insecurity, and possibly craved and felt attachments dearly. In truth, to not feel attachment...as a human being.. would be a worry. To not connect with others, or to live a selfish or individualistic life, is to live no life at all .. right?
To feel connected to others means to feel...Life.. yet also to vulnerable to others too ( which some may find scary) but it keeps one humble I reckon
You see, I honestly feel that it's what we as humans desire most. To fully connect with others, with someone...to sense their heartbeat, to enjoy thier energy, to talk, to laugh, to cuddle.. to be physically intimate, to make love
It's why we date.
It's why, even after a nightmare 'relationship'.. we get up, piece our broken hearts back together again.. fill our souls up.. giggle..blush.. and do it all again!
We do so.. because we are compelled to love.
So... apart from great company, what else would you consider a great date?. For me?. it varies.. (I'm quite a mix)
but ultimately, it involves being outside. (hmmm to begin with )
So what comes to mind is...
A nice walk in the park.. enjoying nature
I love water, so sea fronts ( beach is cool on warm days)
Doing something funny or sporty ( karting/horseriding/iceskating.. or something I've never done but always wanted to)
Getting dressed up in a really pretty outfit, and enjoying a show (play) ( something cultured/music/art) before a nice scenic drive around London ( or wherever I was at the time) in a beautiful Rolls (Royce - see below.. Hey.. It's my car.. and London always looks beautiful at night!)
Perhaps a trip to the movies, just hanging out together in town, holding hands like teenagers (the non aggressive more stylish cooler ones:))
A simple lunch date in the summer, outside on a bench, or at a cafe under a parasol.. enjoying a cool breeze, and watching the world go by
Ultimately.. it would appear, that a great date for me.. is doing things I like to do anyway.. just with a great guy, who just so happens to enjoy the same (or at least very similar) things!
Oh.. and kissing.. a great date must include kissing (someone who can kiss well) .. or ( if it's the 1st/2nd date and you're taking it slow because you really like 'em..) at least the desire to!
Here's to good old fashioned dates..
Now.. let me see that car again.... yep..pretty sure it's best when it comes with a driver. I like the name Wilson for a driver.. yeah I can see it now, as I ease out of my heels.."Wilson... I'm tired..take me home..")
