Would You rather play competitive games with your date or have long walks on the beach with your date?
I'd settle for just having a date
Damn I'm the only one who voted for competitive games?!?? I love games: board games, card games, trivia games, sports, ping pong, darts, etc. How can I be the only one voting for friendly competition.
You are not the only one. I also do. And, I see it as an avenue -- not the only avenue -- to getting a feel for somebody's personality. We can always walk on the beach, but if a date doesn't like the kind of games you mentioned, I won't be too excited about our long term cohesiveness.
Sometimes...a great date is a game of putt-putt and/or some go-Kart racing....it's a great way to get to know someone and if they behave badly or with honor when they win/lose.
Actually neither. I like to sit somewhere and talk and get to know a person. Beach/ romantic don't necessarily belong together
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.
Who wants to be competitive when you can spend that time being romantic.
Who needs a beach? Just spending time with someone you enjoy being with can be romantic.
I'd rather have a nice long conversation.
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!
Either would be acceptable.
Beach, no contest. BUT, @thinktwice, I play WWF too. =]
@IAMGROOT Fair warning...my rules are pretty tough...one could be stuck as a bottom for a very long time.......I am very competitive...lol...and I like top...
Slow walk to the beach and long sitting sessions by the surf.
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.
Walking in sand is a pain in the ass. Let's play a game.
I love games, but I'm not really a fan of competitive games - usually one player has a massive advantage over the other so there's not much point. Cooperative games are a lot more fun for me because we can work as a team towards a common goal (which is really what a relationship should be more about anyway )
