Date Night: Self-dates are the future

By Nikayla Goddard, January 24 2017 —

Do you ever wish you actually had a date to do cool things with? Here are a few sweet date night ideas — for just you.

What better way to meet a potential date than speed dating? If you’re between the ages of 24 and 35, head down to Trolley 5 on 17 Ave. on Jan. 26 from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Meet 20 new people for $30 — that’s $1.50 a person. Each date lasts four to five minutes. Flirt, flaunt and find out your matches when the organizers send you their numbers the next day.

If you’re concerned about your love life, 5-Minute Therapy might be the deal for you. Get five minutes of free counselling from Emelia Symington Fedy as part of the High Performance
Rodeo. She will host sessions on Jan. 27 at noon in Bankers Hall and Jan. 28 at noon in the Simmons Building.

Of course, the best sort of date can be the one spent at home. After all, what’s cheaper — a fancy-schmancy dinner for two at a steak place downtown or a bag of extra–butter popcorn, a glass of wine and Netflix? Case made. Treat yo’ self.
