Date on a Dime: 16 Again

Meet Tim & Anna

Our latest guest blogging couple and dear friends are currently somewhere between Virginia and California (We’re not really sure when they will get to whichever one they are going to). They love to have fun and they love being in love…almost as much as we do. So we thought they would be the perfect pair to head up our ‘Love on a Dime’ series which deals with keeping the romance alive, when you don’t have much more than a couple of quarters and you’re on your last gallon of gas.

So, without further ado, we hope you enjoy them and their antics… Cheers and here’s to love!

What can a man do to woo his woman, and what can a woman spring on her man which says, “I know you’re busy & we’re broke, but I still love you & wanted to do something a little special just to break the routine of you breaking wind on the couch while I talk to my girlfriend on the phone.”

Here’s an option. Why not go back in time, to the awkwardness of teenage years & make yourself feel better that while you now may no longer have the highest source of disposable income as teens are claimed to have, you at least have grown out of your gangly walk, don’t have to laugh at everything the other person says or worry that your pants will become an instant tent if she touches you, and you can both see one another’s complexion without a layer of zits blocking the view.

A teen date not only refreshes the zing in a relationship, but also helps you see how far you’ve developed in the years you’ve been together. :)

Games: $6.00

We started the night with some awkwardness, just to conjure up old nostalgic feelings. Dancing… to the instructions of a machine. Then some heated competition, to help restore a semblance of personal ability. (2 games, either to reassure both of you, or to really reassure the most competitive of the two.)

Dessert: $4.00

Our next step in the date is a drive to Miccy Dees. Not for a romantic meal as you did as a teen, but for some caffein and sugar to help sustain you & keep you awake after the exhausting dancing & air hokey. (This moment in the date, while seemingly small, plays a large part in the next step of the date.)

Romantic View: Free

The final chapter of this night out together, to help restore the companionship & a sense of romance and adulthood, involves sitting on a hill overlooking the city. Admiring the lights & watching the busy lives running about below, while the two of you are quietly (or loudly bragging about your success at air hockey, but let’s hope not) enjoying one another’s company together… just being.

(You may be required to take balloons & squeak them for a while until the other canoodling teenagers find somewhere else to make out, where obnoxious adults aren’t disturbing them.)

And what’s a teen date without some kissing on the street?

Total Date Night: $10.00

From somewhere between Virgina & California,
Tim & Anna
