What makes a date special?
No, I’m not talking about dates like MM/DD/YY or anything like that. I’m talking about a date where two people meet up. It’s a date!
Have you ever went on a date? Maybe a date with your loving partner? Or maybe a date with your best friend? Or even a blind date?
If you have, did you ever have a special date? A date so special that you can’t even forget it and you want to do it over and over. A date you’ll miss so much when you go home.
If yes, you may already have your own perspective of what makes a date special. If no, I’ll share you my idea of what makes a date special.
It’s simple really. All dates are special when it is with the person you truly love and care for. Being with someone whose company is enough to make you feel that your day is already complete – that’s what ultimately makes the date special.
The date will never be so memorable and delightful if you’re not spending it with the right person.
Yes, a date with the right person is always special – it makes you feel something else entirely. Your world becomes more vibrant, soothing and exciting when you let them in.
All the other things that make up a date are just extras and make such a date more special than it already is. Such other things are important so you can make the most out of your date.
Of course, a special date won’t be complete without good food. Maybe choose the food that you’ve been craving for so long. Maybe you can eat both of your comfort foods and be comforted with each other’s presence. Or maybe, try something new and explore adventures.
Good food let’s you enjoy your moment with your date. You may even use it to make your date more exciting by feeding each other.
It is also the interesting conversations with random topics or silly jokes that makes up a date. The environment that the right person brings you makes you feel free to talk about anything.
A date feels so much more happier when you’re all smiles talking about funny things that happened to you last time. It becomes more cheerful when one narrates little stories from childhood or remarkable experiences from the recent past. Or you can just simply talk about that new knowledge you’ve gain from a video of reputable sources.
The conversations make it special but so do the comfortable silence. Obviously, you can’t be talking all throughout the date. It is a different type of peace and quiet when you’re with someone without words being spoken. The tranquility you feel is a rare kind of peace.
But, romantic dates are special because of the intimacy. This is rather subjective but it is not worth denying that any sweet and intimate interactions, no matter what kind, allows you to feel so much more than the usual enthusiastic happiness. It gives you that giddy happiness of love that no one can ever give you. Holding hands, hugging, placing arms over the shoulders and kissing all feel special.
But, in the end, it all boils down to who are you having a date with. Good food, meaningful or random conversations, comfortable silence and intimacy are nothing if not with the right person.
Choose someone who makes you feel thankful spending time with them. Choose someone who makes you feel that the date is not time wasted but time well spent. It will all be worth it if we choose someone who we deeply love and who feels the same too.
