My Favorite Date was...

It was a beautiful spring day, with clear skies when he picked me up around 2 o'clock in the afternoon. He drove me to Scottsdale Civic Center, and laid out a blanket underneath a tree in the green grass. We sat and talked for about an hour eating a lunch that he had packed consisting of potato chips, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and soda's. We had a wonderful time lounging in the shade surrounded by people walking their dogs and families walking through the civic center. The food was wonderful, weather was perfect, and the conversation was comfortable and enjoyable. After finishing our lunch, we packed everything up and headed over to the free art galleries that are sporadically placed throughout the civic center. We walked through the art galleries for another hour, just enjoying each others company and admiring all of these artist's creative talents. It is really neat to hear another person's perspective on a painting because it could be completely different than yours. We had a wonderful date that consisted of some great quality time of getting to know each other and enjoying each other's company while spending no money at all. ~Amanda J.

Ask your significant other if he or she would like to join you at a local pizza place before or after a movie. Before the two of you have your meal, go to the restaurant personally, explain that you're coming in at a certain time for a pizza, and tell them you'd like them to make the pizza into the shape of a heart. I've tried this twice, and both times the cooks were more than happy to do it for no extra cost. Give the waitress a smile when you come in with your date, and she'll come over with your pizza. This is an especially good date to use on my girlfriend. I did not have much money but she really enjoyed it and thought it was cute.. ~Kelton S.

My girlfriend was taking me out for my birthday and she took me to this really nice park with a huge fountian that would spray really high in the air. The mountains were in the background and it was so nice. She then had a picnic set up there that her Mom had set up when we arrived there. I was very impresses how organized everything was. When we sat down my favorite Chinese food was sitting there along with my favorite drink. While we were eating the sun was going down and we had a very fun conversation. After that we went for a walk around the park. That night was alot of fun because she did not have to spend alot of money, but at the same time knew what my favorite food was and it was a fun night. ~Frankie D.
