Fixed!

what's your problem with Wendy's?? Doesn't get much better than a spicy chicken sandwich and large frosty :)

I went to Avatar the other day, and we smuggled in a bunch of stuff and my gfriend said that even when we first started goin out I didn't buy her popcorn, made me feel kinda bad, but hey smuggled candy tastes good. :)

That's a 10/10 for the meal combo which IMO is the best fast food meal available.

But on a serious side, don't take a woman to fast food unless you've been together a while.

This I do really disagree with.

Problems with Movies:

1. Floor is sticky (where I live)

2. Need to be quiet = no talking

3. Costs at least 20 dollars if you are going with snacks which is usually required + another 25 for dinner. 45 bucks for food and a movie with a bunch of other people = way too expensive.

4. Awkward if you're not familiar (I.E. romantic) with each other (first date)

5. Seats make any good snuggling uncomfortable.

Alternative to dinner and movie date.

1. Cook the meal for your date.

2. Pirate the 720p version of it when it comes out on bluray

3. Snuggle in bed and watch 720p version via HDMI cable on your LCD panasonic 720p

WIN

$7 vs $45

Privacy + warm bed + Advanced snuggling vs sticky floor, uncomfortable seats, noisy public

Conservative dogs have a higher heat tolerance than those inferior liberal, yankee dogs up north.

Wendy's? So what you are in effect saying to the girl is:

"I want to get inside your kaks, but not so much that I'm willing to spend more than the price of a burger and a soda on you at some depressing, downmarket fast food joint."

Save up for a decent meal at a proper restaurant and go dancing afterwards. If you can afford it, get a private booth at the club and invest in a bottle of bubbly because, as every player knows, champagne goes straight to a girl's minge.

Before you know it she'll be frothing at the gash and you'll be up to your plums in she-meat!

Movies are definitely a poor date idea - especially early in the process of meeting someone. The biggest problem is that you cannot talk and get to know each other during the movie. You just sit next to each other for two hours. Not to mention it lacks any sort of creativity.

The OP who suggested Wendy's is in fact a Female :)

Now I agree that there may be some women who might not appreciate the awesomeness or economicallness of Wendy's

but hey, if you can't land the right kind of girl on a date, why even bother takin her out??

Though I must admit my girlfriend thinks that we haven't gone on a "real date" for a "very long time"

so... maybe my suggestions aren't too valid.

22-year old female in Salt Lake City, Utah, United States.

One of my favorites and cheapest is wendy's and iceblocking!

Wendy's is a good fast food joint, yes. I don't know anyone, guy or girl, who would appreciate a fast food date though.

http://en.wikipedia.org...
Ice blocking is a recreational activity in which individuals race to the bottom of a hill sitting on large blocks of ice. It is sometimes recommended as a good activity for dating and scout camps. In the United States ice blocking is thought to be regional, occurring in the West.

That's just weird.

How about Starbucks or a restaurant like TGI Fridays? Both relatively cheap. Definite no to all of the above. No to movies as well.

For a date you need:

- Something unique
- Where you a best at your game (i.e. somewhere you can easily chat and avoid awkward silences)
- Not spending a lot of money while still retaining some classiness and feeding the woman.
- An activity

I'd recommend bowling and somewhere to eat like TGI Fridays (Not too expensive, not too cheap). And in that order. It's not fun to bowl on a full stomach.

If you can try to combine multipel small activities into one. For example, my local bowling place has pool/snooker as well as an arcade and some air hockey. Quadruple win.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

Now we're talking with drinking tap water for drinks and getting your sauce at home from your parent's fridge.

We can say,"I left my wallet at home, can you get this bill?" That would save us $2

Sorry, didn't realise GostWriter was a wee lassie! In this case, it doesn't really matter - I'm sure if her date is any sort of gentleman and is interested in her he would be happy just to be with her.

If the weather is nice, why not picnic by the river and then hire a boat? As cheap as chips and as romantic as any candlelight dinner.

You know, my advice is sort of a combination of Wendy's and the quadruple win. Just go on a progressive dinner. Where you get a drink at McDonalds, fries at Arby's, a burger at Burger King, and finally a Frosty at Wendys. You get to talk during the car ride and share in the desire for fries for half the ride.

Other than that, another date that I've been on is a bikeride. Whether you get two bikes, or find a Tandem Bike it doesn't really matter. The only problem with this idea is if you live in a hilly neighborhood. If you do, then just settle for a walk.

I'd suppose you'd just eat theirs and not give it to them. Good call.

Bikerides are awesome dates, at least when my girlfriend's not feeling particularly lazy :) lol

She only likes bikerides if I promise we'll go to the clam bar though, and they're pricey 8(

Yea, what if you had a two tickets to MegaDeath. You could either see them with your girlfriend one night, or go two nights a row.
