The dinner+movie date

Have you watched old movies in which the couple goes for dinner and then drives in to an open-air movie theater? The man then proceeds to move in on the lady by putting his arm around her shoulder and if he's lucky, they make out in the car and more. A dinner and movie date must have been fun in those days. The dinner allows time for the couple to get to know each other and the movie was an opportunity to make out if everything goes well.

In Singapore now, there are no outdoor drive-in movie theaters. The cinemas are packed. We have to queue for tickets and if we're lucky enough to get tickets, we have to squeeze ourselves into tiny seats among other adults or sometimes screaming children. It's not very considerate to make out when sitting beside kids.

I suppose many people still swear by the formularistic dinner and movie date. It's safe. It doesn't require much thought or planning. Everyone knows what to expect, what to do, what to wear, how much it will cost, how long it's going to take. That's precisely why I find it boring! No risk, no excitement, nothing memorable. Some guys have tried asking me out on dinner+movie dates. I wonder how those guys (who have read my blog) can think that I would say Yes.

By the way, if you're hoping to make out with your date, don't set yourself up for failure by choosing places which are not conducive for making out. The cinema may be exciting but not everyone likes the idea of making out in it. So, move with the times and find some other places to go to on your dates!

Seriously Kymmy..
i start to think of places which are conducive for making out with the date, not much places to choose from unless your date had "making out" mentality on that day.
a dinner in a posh hotel room??
