Would You rather play competitive games with your date or have long walks on the beach with your date?
Voted for the walk..because the beach is so nice this afternoon ...but later we are going back up to the house because I'm cooking Ravioli from scratch..I think she will love it...we will finish our wine on the veranda overlooking the last of the stragglers leaving the beach..
Then play some Trivial pursuit with a little more wine for giggles..then who knows.
I should think it would be the death knell of any relationship to play competitive games whilst dating. In my very long life experience, unless the woman deliberately allowed the guy to win every time it would hit the skids pretty soon. My husband couldn’t even play board games with the kids without wanting to win!
Being competitive will probably bring you both together more so than a walk on the beach. Exciting physical activity or challenges makes people feel happier and their endorphins rise and it's like a positive reinforcement with being with that person. There is more to it, and the competition part might throw a monkey wrench into it, but I would think that would bring people closer together. Unless you're both psychos, I think a little light competition can be playful.
