Dessert-First Date

My wife and I recently read one of those inspirational, stop-taking-your-life-for-granted books. Though I didn’t think the book was good enough to warrant recommending to others, there was a passing comment made in one chapter that I thought could be tweaked for a fabulous date idea.

You know how whenever you go out to restaurants the waiter comes up at the end of your overly-sized meal and asks if you want dessert? I don’t know about you, but my wife and I always say no. It’s not because we don’t want it, it’s just that we’re too full for it. Desert always seems like a good idea at the beginning of a meal, but it’s not something you particularly want to spend money on when you’re feeling completely stuffed.

So here’s the date idea. Take your wife out on a Dessert-First Date. Tell her that you both are going out to eat at her favorite restaurant, but there’s a twist: Before she can eat dinner, she must have dessert. You’re going to spend an evening doing something that flies in the face of everything your momma taught you: you’re going to ruin your dinner. After you both enjoy a sweet first course, then order something small afterward: a soup, salad, or an entree you both share.

It’s crazy, and it’s not something anyone should make a habit of, but that’s exactly why it will be a wonderful date. It’s a fun twist on that default dinner date we're all so accustomed to.


  1. a novel idea! Funny we were discussing how desert is usually not cheap and so most people end up omitting it yet deep down they'd really love some!
    You commented on my blog (kittenscushion) so I thought I'd come read your blog.

  2. Thanks for the great ideas! Keep at this blog you are doing great work. I plan on doing this idea on our next date.

    After being in relationship with him for nine years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email is lovecaster1spelltemple@yahoo.com
