He thinks it’s the worst date ever, she thinks it’s the best date ever. A well thought out plan took an unexpected turn but in the end, it all worked out. Pedsnurse88 tells her story.
“My now-husband took me to a lighted boat parade (where people decorate their boats with Christmas lights and sail around so people along the river can see them) for our first date. The cost was a simple donation of canned goods. When we got to the given address, we saw the boats getting ready to set sail and we stood there waiting. Once the parade started, it took about ten minutes before we realized all of the boats were literally sailing away from us.
We only got to watch them leave. To this day he claims it was the worst first date ever but to be honest, I feel like it was the best. Rather than being distracted by a movie or food or whatever other activity, we were able to talk and get to know each other. I always recommend little local activities or events when people ask for date ideas because you never know when that art festival or carnival could become the best night of your life.”
