On the road to nowhere

#FirstDate #FirstDates #FirstDatesIRL #Dating #LEGO

I highly recommend going on a road trip with the person you’re dating. This isn’t a first or even second date suggestion, but I do recommend doing this early on when dating somebody new. A road trip is a perfect opportunity for bonding. You’re trapped in a metal box, speeding down the highway, listening to your favorite music – and the person you’re with couldn’t be happier. That’s the perfect scenario, and I’ve been lucky enough to be in it more than once. Be prepared – small talk is out the window, it’s time for meaningful conversations.

I think you’re all fucked in the head. We’re ten hours from the fucking fun park and you want to bail out. Well I’ll tell you something. This is no longer a vacation. It’s a quest. It’s a quest for fun. I’m gonna have fun and you’re gonna have fun. We’re all gonna have so much fucking fun we’ll need plastic surgery to remove our goddamn smiles. You’ll be whistling ‘Zip-A-Dee Doo-Dah’ out of you’re assholes! I gotta be crazy! I’m on a pilgrimage to see a moose. Praise Marty Moose! Holy Shit!

As Clark Griswold knows, a road trip can also illuminate potential bumps in the road. You might make a wrong turn, spill food/drink in their brand new car, or disagree on where to stop. Any or all of those things could lead to disaster. On the other hand, they can also be a way for you to bond by working through adversity.

If you travel well, and you think you’re ready to take your relationship to the next level, ask them to go on a road trip. By the end of the journey, you’ll either be whistling Zip-A-Dee Doo-Dah or reinstalling Tinder. Praise Marty Moose!
