I'd like some recommendations on places where you guys/girls like to go on dates. The movie/dinner thing is getting to be boring. Walking around Citywalk isn't fun, the Santa Monica Pier is full of gangster wannabes. Had dinner at The Charthouse last night, was at a loss what to do afterwards. You can go so many times to a Starbucks type place before you get sick of it.

Suggestions?

gym, pool, picknick at a lake or river, diving, hicking, tennis, swiming, interesting play at a local theather (avoid student performances - too amaturish), book reviews, check also major hotel chains usually offer interesting programs at the lobby - jazz nights, swing, etc.. plus they are not that expensive. Check out also the ticket master for local concerts and sport games.

For a longer date (one day), take a drive to Big Bear or Arrowhead. You can also drive up the coast towards Santa Barbara. One of my favorite drives is along the 78 from the I-5 into the Anza Borrego area. But this assumes you both kind of enjoy driving and the $$$$ needed for gas is not a huge issue.

You can never go wrong with hitting the beach ... just take a couple of blankets and sleeping bags and head over to Zuma. When you get to Zuma, the part behind the hill (east of the actual beach) is excellent and you can park there till midnight. Otherwise you can just park along PCH and walk over to the beach. I've spent many nights there and it can be a great place to create a bit of intimacy with your special someone (plus it's free!).

Some nights you can just go walk around the UCLA campus ... maybe get something to eat around westwood. There's a great cookie place accross the street from BJ's.

One day you guys may want to go hit up the Ghetto Center (aka Getty Center).

I could through out some more ideas maybe but it really depends on what you both like. If you're not both much into driving I probably won't be of much help.

Write a song together.
Take an art class together.
Give each other a manicure.
Study the Gospel together.
Walk down a busy road eating M & M's and wave at the cars that are the same color as the M & M you just ate.

Haven't had any complaints so far smile.gif But yah I am not married if that is what "single" means.

By the way, as far as hitting the beach, having an SUV with a folding back seat and a tail gate is a HUGE advantage in this case. Emil, I'm not sure if the back of yours flattens out but if it does, then don't be shy to use it! It's much better than any back seat! wink.gif

Nonsense! Half the fun of the back seat is fitting into it. Granted for 'bigger' people it wont be pleasant and so you my as well stick to a fatass American SUV tongue.gif
