If yesterday’s link has inspired you to go out on a (first) date, today’s link has some suggestions for you.
From hazy university-time memories spent on the early Internet (IRC practically was the internet at the time), the perennial dating question on bulletin boards was “what should I do on a date?”, “does anyone have any suggestions?”
It is a deceptively simple question with really no good answer. A good date is whatever both (all?) parties involved in it say it is. It either requires some communication up-front, or a good deal of mind-reading. (Or possibly, stalking, which I neither condone nor endorse).
There should be a solution to this problem…
A quick search in the Google Play store confirms there is a plethora of dating-related apps to (theoretically*) help you find someone to go on a date with. I’m sure a similar result can be had in the iPhone and Windows equivalents.
A similar search for apps to help you find something to do on the date once you have it… no inspiring results. Clicking through into a few of the results shows mostly canned-lists-of-ideas dreamed up by the author of the app, in hopes of making a quick buck.
I sense a niche in the online-dating market that hasn’t been filled yet.
Something to help would-be-daters:
- Discover date ideas
- Match their ideas to those of their date
Or I guess… you could just talk to your date.
But that’s scary.
