While I’ve been taken to some of the best restaurants in the city and had some extravagant dates before, my favourite date by far was one of the cheapest.
It was a first date and I met him at the Harbourfront. I was presently surprised when he was dressed well in a dress shirt and pants and was carrying a cooler bag. We were headed to Toronto Island.
It was a Friday night and he had packed a cooler full of champagne, prosciutto wrapped asparagus, and cheese with gluten-free crackers (this man did his homework).
We got to know each other looking over at the Toronto skyline with flutes filled with champagne and nibbling on hand-prepared snacks.
It was quite romantic and well executed. It went down in history and lives today as the best date I have ever been on in Toronto.
So boys, take notice when planning a first date with someone that you want to impress. Figure out what she likes and incorporate it into the evening (in my case it was champagne).
And it need not be expensive. Often the bat things in life are well planned and thought out. And that matters.
