You know I’ve been online dating for a little over a year now. It’s certainly an interesting experience that’s had more ups and downs. I won’t give up though because I still hold out hope that I’ll fall head over heels in love.
The first date I went on I was super nervous and didn’t know what to expect. Now that I’ve been on more than a few, I’m becoming a bit of an expert at how to prepare so the night goes as smoothly as possible.
I pack my purse to be on the offense for anything to strike. It all starts with prevention. Hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes because let’s be honest, I don’t know where this guy’s been or what his deal is. That’s why I also rely on Emergen-C that I stock up on at Walmart. More healthy days, more healthy nights. The more nights that I can be feeling good mean a better chance of finding Mr. Right … assuming he is also online, which I’m growing less and less certain of as the days pass. It also tastes great and is an easy way to get the vitamins I need.
I also carry my cell phone. It’s good for killing time while I wait for my date to show and hope he actually does. I haven’t been stood up yet, but I’m prepared for it. Plus, in the event that my date turns out to be a jerk, I can call Mom to rescue me.
I always throw my sunglasses in as well so I can camouflage myself if my good looking 30 year old turns out to be dumpy and 50. I’m totally prepared to hide in the corner of the restaurant and pretend I’m someone else.
My little card case is important to have too. It has my ID in case I get carded as well as credit cards. I always offer to pay, but ladies, I know you’re with me when I say if he takes me up on that offer, there won’t be a second date. Despite all the bad dates I’ve had, I haven’t had to pay yet.
Then there’s my Advil Tablet Vial, which is so easy to stash in my bag. Use Advil tablets for headaches, minor arthritis and other joint pain, muscle aches and pains of the common cold. Sometimes just a few minutes into a date, I’ve got a headache that goes into my neck and my bad knee acting up thanks to my heels since I tried to look nice unlike my date in his torn jeans and t-shirt. Luckily Advil’s got my back … literally.
Just in case the need arises for a kiss (this hasn’t happened yet, but I’m anxiously waiting), I keep my lips looking and feeling good with lipstick and of course ChapStick Total Hydration which is 100% Natural and instantly smooths and moisturizes with omega 6 & 9. I don’t go anywhere without ChapStick and haven’t since I was in grade school!
Whether you’re trying to find your soul mate like me or have been married for years, my date night essentials are perfect to make sure to have a fun night out.
