Dating Diary


Do you remember that old principal, Keep It Simple Stupid? Well I remember and I am not calling men stupid, just advocating that sometimes keeping it simple impresses women the most.

I have had some of the best dates when men have kept the planning simple, thoughtfully geared toward what I like, and just relaxed. Sometimes we stress ourselves out about how to make things so grand and perfect, that we lose the intent and result we wanted to achieve.

The goal should be to make your date happy and to get a smile or happy tears in return. I know the goals get a little more sexual these days, but let’s revert to what dating used to be. The chivalrous, simple way of dating was so much less confusing.

Flowers always appreciated whether hand delivered or sent to the office or home. A fun, inexpensive ice cream date or glass of wine on a beautiful patio, watching the sunset can impress just as much as being whisked away on a fancy date. I appreciate both, but the dates with pure intent are always the ones that are well remembered.

Look at Lady and The Tramp. The Tramp couldn’t afford to take Lady anywhere fancy, but made her so happy by giving her the last meatball and putting her first.

Set the bar high gentleman and plan a great simple date guaranteed to win us over.
