Here are a few random examples of the fabulous creations of Ms. Haynes's and Mr. Edwrads's geniality:
Flirt only with each other. Whisper sweet nothings. Form a romantic poetry society. Sing Auld Lang Syne at midnight. Sit side by side on a park bench and watch the world go by. Teeter-totter an evening away. Take a taxi around your city to see the sights. Restore an antique car together. Discuss current events. Cure each other of the hiccups.
After browsing this truly amazing "book", I spent two minutes looking around in my room and lo - a dozen super hot dating tips popped into my head: look out of the window together, scratch your noses together, play a computer game together, try to break a pencil in two together, clean up your room together, clean up her room together etc etc.
Wow! I could become a best selling author, too. But why stop with "2002 Things to Do on a Date"? Why not write a dating tips series of, say, ten volumes? That would be a great starting point to move on - to "2002 Things to Do on a Business Lunch", for instance. Discuss what you like about your dish. Discuss what you dislike about your dish. Measure which one of you has a longer middle finger. Try to count each others' hair. Ha! I kill me!
To sum up: If you find ten useful tips in this book, you are very lucky
I think for a date you should read this book with your date and laugh at most of the stupid ideas.
If you are looking for creative and fun date ideas I'd highly recommend going to 300creativedates. com and check out the material there. I loved the ideas.
so how bad is it? you should get it and judge for youself. such things as "pray together". that's a great ice breaker on a first date. "watch mtv and play along with a kazoo", or "have a picnic under the stars and watch for halley's comet". because after all, it only comes around every 76 years.
yeah so this book was made for the socially inept and boring. don't take it seriously at all. i'd be amazed if people actually did.
If you want to break out of a rut, I'd suggest picking up a local alternative weekly or newspaper's Friday section and cruising through the stuff to do section. Or peruse the list of classes to a nearby Learning Annex or community college or even thumbing through the yellow pages under 'instruction,' 'restaurants' and so on, you'll find enough ideas to get you going.
If my husband and I ever get to the point that we have to refer to this book, it's probably time for marital counseling.
