Create the Perfect Date

Today's topic for #LoveBlog is perfect date. I had a hard time with this one. I sat here and I thought and thought about the many dates I've been on. Then, I started to wonder which one to describe as perfect and I realized none of them qualified. When I started to analyze why I felt this way, I realized it was because while a lot of them were awesome in one way or another, none of them were truly "perfect" because perfect doesn't really exist. Life is messy and things go wrong and that's okay. Perfect is essentially something that is unattainable. Then, I came up with a way to make the perfect date...

Are you ready for the steps for creating your very own perfect date? It's really not as hard as you think!

1. Select a date from your memories.
It can be an awesome date or a mediocre one. It can be a date you hated. It doesn't really matter - just select a date. (Or can even make up one.)

2. Think about the good and bad moments of the date.
Analyze your date - what went well and what went wrong? What were the highlights of the evening and what were the downers?

3. Tell someone about the date omitting all of the bad details.
It's as simple as focusing only on the good. If you focus on the good every time you tell the story, then that becomes the one you and your friends remember!

4. Post about it on social media.
We all know that social media only shows the highlights of someone's life, right? So, make sure you post that perfect date story as one of your highlights!

Those steps were obviously for humor. I do believe in one thing that makes a date perfect - being with someone you love. In the end, it doesn't matter what happens on the date as long as you're with the one you love. After all, just think about how many rainstorms spark a perfect first kiss in the movies.

Do you believe in perfect dates? What do you feel is most important in a date?


  1. This made me laugh! Way to be creative with the prompt.

    1. Thanks! When the idea came to me, I knew I had to roll with it!

  2. So true...perfect doesn't exist (no matter what you see or read on social media)!

    1. Exactly! Social media definitely makes us think it does!
