    I'm back in the game now and it's been fuckin rough trying the online dating. I'm slightly above average looking but not very photogenic and my pics are subpar at best. So naturally, I can't get any replies from women that aren't 80lbs overweight. Even the plain looking thin girls ignore me.

    Long story short, I miracously matched with a fellow divorcee on Tinder and she is quite frankly, a league above me. Somehow, I got her to meet me for coffee last night and I put the charm in overdrive. We talked for a couple of hours and I thought it went well. She texted me early this morning wanting to see me again and now we are going to the movies tonite.

    I think I'm on my way in fellas.

    But, a couple hours ago she also texted me about planning something romantic for Valentine's day.

    Her exact words...
    "Plan something romantic for Feb 14, I want to see a different side of you... Surprise me."
    "I think it would be nice to be with you on Valentine's Day. What do you think?"
    "Something simple, but different"

    Ok, so I don't want to fuck this up guys. This is the best online dating is ever going to get for me. Lol
    Problem is, we both work on Thurs, and traffic is a complete bitch until like 8pm.

    I was thinking just dinner on Thurs and then a Haunted House tour on Friday. But the whole "different" and "surprise me" is just setting the bar to high for me. I'm terrible at date planning, and I usually try to set expectations low from the start. But this was unexpected.

    How would you play this?

    P.S. - Her body is 10x better than what I was expecting before we actually met.



    UPDATE - I mentioned her challenge while we were at the movies and she actually recommended we just do a romantic dinner. While I suggested a restaurant that suited her favorite food (sushi), she insisted we instead go to a place that suits my favorite cuisine (mexican).

    So I'll just get her something clever as a gift. Maybe like a pop out rose card with a charming message. It's too early to do the flowers imo. And it's way too predictable, right?

    What are your cooking skills like? I never had many moves in my dating days, but that was one that I could usually rely on.

    Literary none of this....


    1. Do something days in advance. Surprise her early.

    2. Do something on the day too. Second surprise.

    3. You guessed, a third day.

    Spread a "big"* effort over three different days to convey you are the everyday dude, not just Valentine's day dude.


    *her being fake after all.

    When I read "simple", this is what I initially thought. I think offering coming over to my place might blow up in my face though.

    I wasn't intending it as a joke, but there's an opportunity there. She probably means take her somewhere romantic, but she also wants the romantic ambiance. If you can cook haute cuisine, you've got an in to offer her.

    If she's commanding you to surprise her she's a demanding bitch and things will only get worse. Surprise her by dumping her.

    Take 12 pictures of your dong going from flaccid to erect. In the last one put a bow tie on it.

    Send her a pic every hour on the 14th. "Getting ready for a very special night"

    Find out what her favorite holiday/time of year is


    Take her on a date to something serious like a museum and then something awesome like the firing range or a round or 2 of lazer tag on the way home .... then take her home and serve her a dinner you would associate with said holiday /fave time of the year

    Take her to a good burlesque show, but don't tell her where you're going till you get there.
    Just tell her it's a musical theatre thing, then surprise her with the burlesque show.
