For our very first date, my partner said that he had the perfect venue in his mind. We both loved being outside and were born and raised in the country, so he thought that we should head out to the country and have a romantic picnic on his parents property. It all sounded good on paper, but we didn’t take the weather into account. Living in the deep south, during the summer it is rather stupid to hang out any place without proper heating for more than ten minutes. Therefore when we set off and began enjoying our picnic, we were starting to feel miserable and sweaty only a few minutes in! We were both too hot and dizzy to want to eat any of the sandwiches or chips and salsa we had packed, and then I was suddenly hit with a great idea. There was a movie theater in town that serves food, so we would be able to lounge around in the cold and crisp air conditioning while getting to eat some food. My idea ended up being a great success. It was less romantic than our calm and quiet picnic venue, but it was much more enjoyable. From then on I have been put in charge of all of the date night ideas for us on the weekends. I have been doing a pretty good job if I do say so, because we have been together for two and a half years now. All it took was a little bit of quick thinking, and some proper air conditioning!
