I love when I have the chance to answer your questions in my Ask Lauren posts. Today’s question came from a private message that was sent to me. It’s a fun one, so I thought I’d share my answer with everyone. Here it goes…
Hi Lauren! What is the best date you have ever been on? I am looking for fun date ideas to go on with my guy. We have been dating for almost two years, and I am all out of ideas.
While I’ve shared quite a few fun date ideas on the site before, the truth is that my best date ever wasn’t super adventurous or creative. It was my second date with my fiancé William. On our first date, I was so nervous that I couldn’t really enjoy myself! But when he asked me on date No. 2, I was feeling a little more relaxed. William wanted to go to a bar to grab a drink together, but I had lost my I.D. and just sent my passport away for my trip to Africa for The Little Market (I know, smooth move…). So, since we couldn’t go to an actual bar, we went to a hotel lobby bar and played cards all night. We literally closed the place down, just playing cards, talking, and laughing. And nevermind the fact that I lost… I actually kind of liked that William didn’t just let me win!
I knew he was a keeper after that night. While it’s fun to spice things up with new activities and adventures, I think that a sign of a strong relationship is when you can have fun doing even the simplest activities together. That’s still true of William and I to this day.
Do you agree that sometimes the simplest dates are the most fun? What is the best date you’ve ever been on?
