Dating In The Modern (Mormon) World

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

On one of my first dates with BF he helped me hack into the internet at the house I was staying at. Take note, hacker=good.

By this point in our courtship we had exhausted ye olde dinner and a movie and were looking for something more interesting to do. It being the end of December in Denver our options were quite limited.

What are two internet geeks to do? Google. Clearly.

And our friend Google came up with this delightful website chock full of creative (and cheap) ideas for things to do on dates. And some of it is your run-of-the-mill cheese-ball stuff.

But I’m quite fond of #31, Make a spoof video and post it on YouTube video.

Or, #27, Have a sword fight with utensils or empty wrapping paper rolls.

As we read on we began to notice a few things. Firstly, that the website was created for teenagers. So the fact that I was more than moderately entertained by many of the suggestions does in fact prove that I am secretly a 14-year-old boy.  But then BF noticed something:

“This is a website for Mormon teenagers!” he said delightedly, noticing the header at the top of the page:

So scratch the 14-year-old boy bit. Because Mormons can’t date until they’re 16.  So, I’m a 17-year-old boy? Sure. Why not.

Regardless, BF better watch his back, because I aim to win at #9, Play cops and robbers. And I intend to sufficiently annoy him with #28, Go caroling, even if it isn’t around Christmas.
