Unusual Places to go on a First Date

First Dates

First Dates

First dates have evolved considerably since the Middle Ages, when a couples´ introduction to each other may not have been until they met at the altar! Dating has now become an industry in its own right with books, magazines and web sites dedicated to ensuring that you select the right place to go, are suitably attired and create a flawless impression with your potential partner. Advice is frequently offered on how to avoid the mundane and make that first encounter special, and inasmuch as a film, dinner or riverboat ride may be romantic, we cannot all afford to do it in Paris (which would be memorable!). So, here are a few suggestions for making that never-to-be-forgotten first date, which will tell you more about your potential partner than just the way they slurp their spaghetti.

Paintball. Starting a new relationship in a fight! Is this such a good idea? Well, provided you are both on the same side, you will be working together as a couple to ensure that the team you are in achieve their objective. Paintballing can be a lot of fun, and involves planning, strategy and teamwork as well as the physical element of pumping emulsion into each other a lá Tarantino. Tip 1. If your female partner greets this suggestion with more enthusiasm than you anticipated – worry!

Star Trek Convention

Star Trek Convention

Elvis/Star Trek/Rocky Horror Show Conventions

These are fantastic opportunities to dress up as your idol or favorite character and exchange stories about your most precious moments. The chance is that you will discover more about each other than you would have at a movie, and this will be an event that you always look back on and make part of your future plans. Tip 2. If your male partner looks better than you in make-up and stockings, you may want to re-consider this option.

Acupuncture to Stop Smoking. You may have first made eye contact sheltering from the elements as you take a cigarette break from the office, but now you want to take the relationship further. What better way to start a future life together than committing to give up smoking and making an appointment to see an acupuncturist? Tip 3. Do not bring your cigarettes with you on this date!



Visit a Psychic. This is a make or break first date. No need to worry about what your friends think about your new potential partner. Forget about what your horoscope says in the dailies. Consult somebody who is supposed to know which way your life is going and who with, and you will find out whether this relationship is doomed to failure or if you will live happily ever after. Tip 4. Go dutch on this date – just in case!

Get a Tattoo. Getting a tattoo is possibly a step further than most people expecting a pizza and cup of coffee would have anticipated on their first date. However, if you know that your date has an interest in tattooing, the emotional and physical act of indelibly marking your skin will leave more than a lasting image on your body! Tip 5. If your partner intends to engrave your name all over their body, you may have a “Fatal Attraction” problem.

Dog Obedience Classes. If you share a love of mans best friend, then there is a good chance that you will be compatible too. However, dogs can reflect their owners´ characteristics, so if your partner’s dog refuses to follow simple commands this may be an indication of what the future holds! Attending a dog obedience class is a great opportunity for you and your dogs to bond, and will be a sharing experience that you will always remember. Tip 6. You will both need a dog!

EdAnd – hey – here’s another great first date idea – give each other a relaxing foot therapy – reflexology is renowned for getting your body tuned up, putting you in a peaceful space and generally giving you the greatest opportunity to make the most of your first date! And if you can’t do this to each other, book in for a ‘couples’ foot massage at your local massage center!

Hilarious Pick Up Lines


Hilarious pick up lines on SHI Symbol Blog

Hilarious pick up lines on SHI Symbol Blog

Came across these hilarious if sometimes crude pick up lines. Some are worth a laugh. I can’t take credit for any of them, they were compiled by Drdating.com – I just thought I’d share a giggle with you.  Would love to know if someone’s actually had success with one of these – it would be unbelievable! The things we Singles have to put up with…



  • Do you believe in free love? (Certainly no!) Then how much do you cost?
  • Do you believe in helping the homeless? [If yes] Take me home with you.
  • Do you believe in Santa Claus? Do you think that if I am good this year, he’ll put you in my stocking this year?
  • Do you believe in the hereafter? Then you know what I’m here after.
  • Do you have any tacos on you? (No.) In that case, will you make out with me?
  • Do you like to dance? Well then, could you go dance so I can talk to your friend?
  • Excuse me, are you ready to go home yet? I lost my rubber duckie. Would you bathe with me instead?
  • I may not be Fred Flintstone, but I bet I can make your bed rock!
  • I’d really like to see how you look when I’m naked.
  • If I said you had a beautiful body, would you throw it on top of me?
  • If you think Chewbacca is hairy, wait till you see my Wookie.
  • I’ll cook you dinner if you cook me breakfast.
  • I’m like Domino’s Pizza. If I don’t cum in 30 minutes, the next one is free.
  • It must be cold in here – or are you just happy to see me?
  • Motion with one finger for a girl to come to you. When, or if she comes, say: I just made you come with one finger. Imagine what I could do with two.
  • Kissing is a language of love….so how about a conversation?

My Blog is meant to be for fun and entertainment. Please do not get offended with the above jokes if they are a little too risque for your taste. It’s not something we publish everyday. This is to help us laugh – did you know it is excellent exercise for your lungs not to mention when you smile and laugh you exercise your face muscles much more than when you frown, hence I’m all for the laughing at all times!


Celebrate being Unmarried and Single in USA in style…

Yes, we have our very own week of celebration in the BIG Calendar of Events now out. Keep free the week of September 20-26 this year for National Unmarried and Single Americans Week .

National Unmarried and Singles American Week - movie release Single

National Unmarried and Singles American Week - movie release Single

Did you know that there is an organisation called www.unmarriedamerica.org  that is an information service for America’s 101 million unmarried adults — who head up a majority of the nation’s  households. Their services focus on your interests as employees, consumers, taxpayers, and voters, regardless of your household size or family structure.  This site says “you will not find a more comprehensive or reliable source of  information about this special population anywhere on the Internet.”  Unmarried America is a function of Spectrum Institute, a nonprofit corporation with federal tax exempt status.

The term “Unmarried and Single Americans Week,” is an acknowledgment that many unmarried Americans do not identify with the word “single” because they are parents, have partners or are widowed. The US Census Bureau statistics reveal, unmarried people include those who were never married, widowed, or divorced, unless otherwise noted.  

 And just in case you were wondering here are a  few Single Life Statistics – courtesy of the US Census Bureau:


Single Life

95.9 million

Number of unmarried Americans 18 and older in 2008. This group comprised 43 percent of all U.S. residents 18 and older.


Percentage of unmarried Americans 18 and older who were women.


Percentage of unmarried Americans 18 and older who had never been married. Another 24 percent were divorced, and 15 percent were widowed.

15.8 million

Number of unmarried Americans 65 and older. These older Americans comprised 16 percent of all unmarried and single people 18 and older.


Number of unmarried men 18 and older for every 100 unmarried women in the United States.


National Unmarried and Singles Americans Week - movie Single released

To help you celebrate this week in style, there is a film just released, coincidentally called  “Single”. It’s produced and directed by Richard Atkinson and Jane Scandurra and distributed by Osiris Entertainment. It  was released this week and is available through major online retailers including BarnesandNoble.com, Amazon.com, and Netflix as well as major retail outlets nationwide.

100 million adults in the USA are single and for the first time ever the majority of US households are headed by an unmarried person. The film takes an in-depth look into the influences behind this generational shift. The story unfolds as thought provoking and often humorous experts, singer/songwriters, comedians and “real people” describe how life today has become more complex, intense and demanding, and that finding and maintaining a lasting relationship has never been more challenging:

So let’s go out, celebrate single life and help recognize singles and our contribution to society – like accounting for $1.6 trillion in U.S. consumer spending.
