day dates > night dates

..the other day I tweeted that day dates were better than night dates. I had a few people ask why. To my surprise, even one of my followers had NEVER went on a day date. Really this is no surprise to me, I should have been able to tell because all she does is participate in #twitterafterdark so I should have known better. Back to the subject at hand, I decided I would post some of the reasons I preferred day dates over night dates, and here are a few reasons:

- Most day dates gives you the opportunity to talk, to find out more about the person you are with. Its the openess of the situation that gives you this advantage.

- Many day dates are short and to the point. Whether is a walk in the park, picnic, museum, etc. They are usually over in a matter of 2-3 hours as to dates at night where dinner and movies are involved.

- Disagree if you want, but I think day dates are MORE romantic than night dates. I would take a picnic in a cool spot under an oak tree before I would take a meal at home, but then again that's just me.

Sure the "invite over" night date could be fabolous. I have had a few of them as well. I'm not knocking them at all, they really are awesome but I find myself either thinking 'when is she leaving' or 'when are we fcuking?" These are just my thoughts though, please tell me what you think.


  1. Day dates are only short if you're not feeling the my opinion. In the past, all of my day dates lasted 5+ hours....because I'm just damn cool. :P

    Seriously though, day dates are better because you actually get to interact with that person on a more personal level and w/o too many distractions OR expectations. There's not too much you can learn about the person in a movie theater or while stuffing your face, outside of their movie and dinner table etiquette(or lack thereof). LOL!

    And I definitely agree that day dates can be more romantic. Especially if you do something w/that person that you know they('ll) enjoy. Gives you more room to be creative and spontaneous too.

    Whoever hasn't been on a day date....I feel for ya. You've missed out.

  2. Nicely put, as always. Gosh I hate agreeing with you arrggghhhhh..... And who said you were that cool anyway? lol

  3. YOU said I was cool. :P And you agree with me because I'm ALWAYS RIGHT!
