The city that never sleeps also never stops dating. It doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t matter if itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Tuesday or Saturday, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s date night.
Plus, when you are truly playing the field, like with online dating, your schedule has to juggle a lot of guysÃ¢â‚¬”and a lot of dates. You just canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t fit them all in on the weekend.
So I went out this week on my first Wednesday date. It was a first date, too. And while my assessment of the guy (letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just call him Boring101) was pretty blah, my rating of this weeknight date as a first date was pretty darn good. Check out my scorecard:
The Pros * Keeps it casual and the pressure off * Puts a time limit on the date in case it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go well * Lets everyone at work be able to review your date outfit * It doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t eat into your weekend plans with friends
The Cons * Risks both of you being exhausted from work and therefore not having a good time or making a good impression * DoesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t give the flexibility to extend the date if it does go well
The Verdict ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s safe as safe can be for a first date. Do it!
