Dr. Dato’s Brief:
Here is an interesting idea for a date.
The post suggests that you take your date to a garage sale with the sole purpose of buying inexpensive toys that you can donate to the local kids charity like “Toys for Tots”. The idea of the date is to create a “feel good’ mood.
My thoughts, although these kind of dates sounds like fun it can backfire, particularly if this is your first or second date and depends who would be driving this ie. the woman or the man. I can see some alarm bells going off in a man’s head as to suggest that a woman should take such a bold a step as making this kind of recommendation.
Any creative date of this nature will need to be thought of before hand and discussed with the each other to gauge the comfort level or discomfort level of doing any kind of activity. I am pretty sure that even when during the first date, there is almost always a debate and discussion of where to go on the first date even if its something like the movie, coffee, dinner etc.
I would get to know the person in advance before being creative in the dating activity and also recommend that women wait for the men to come up with the dates without sounding too sexist.
