Ok, so everyone thinks that the asking out is the hard part. Yeah, it can be scary and sexual rejection is tough, but what are the results after the girl you’ve been eyeing across the living room during your YSA FHE says “yes” when you finally build up the daring to ask her out. What now? You will need a strategy, but you don’t need to do the standard LDS date of a movie (preferably of a Grams rating), punch and cookies, and then the super spiritual discussion that always generally seems to follow. You just want her to have fun, and you don’t want to be dull. LDS dating can be tough, particularly when you get into the same old dating routine. So here are some unique ideas for that special date you would rather not lose interest to death.
LDS Fortune Cookies — Ok, I know what your thinking, and it’s really a lot simpler than you may think and never having to figure out a way to get a bunch fortune cookies from a Chinese restaurant, get the tiny slip of paper out of the candy bar without breaking it, and then sliding another of your back inside, without breaking it again. Just make your own. There are simple recipes that you can find on the internet that will explain exactly how to make your very own fortune cookies, and then you can create your own LDS fortunes to put inside. Some LDS fortunes, for example, could be: “You can only change yourself, so start with your attitude”, “Be an example by choosing the right, even when you are alone”, or “Gratitude is the first step towards future blessings”.
Flea Market — Go to a flea market and discover cheap, random things that are interesting and make up stories about the fictional previous owner. The person who can come up with the best story has to buy the other ice cream. Or you can learn how to hammer out a deal prices at a flea market, so not only will your date be entertained, she’s going to learn an art too, and you can’t have too many of those… like, the old LDS saying, “don’t hide your talents”, here’s your time to shine! lds dating app
Finger Painting Pictionary — It’s not just for kids. Go to a craft store, buy some finger paints and a huge part of butcher shop paper for your canvas, and write a large number of LDS things on strip of paper to play from. I think you know where I want with this, instead of drawing with a pen, pencil or gun, use your fingertips and paint! It’s fun and messy as well as a good chance to flirt with paint.
Treat Tournament — If there is one thing to be said about LDS culture, if there is food, people will show up. Same costs LDS dating… you can never go wrong with a date that involves food. So for a group date, have a treat making tournament. Make and then sample all of the desserts and see which couple works enough to make an award winning treat.
