The Skirt: Seven Dates That Don’t Suck

"The Skirt" is an ongoing series in which Four Pins' resident lady friend, Rachel Seville, becomes the most important woman in your life.

You met the girl, you texted her and you bought her something. So it’s kind of weird that you haven’t taken her out on a date yet, right?

The thing is, you’re probably taking ladies to all the wrong places. But I’m here to help. So no more group hangs, no more bowling, no more lame bars that still play “Empire State of Mind,” no more stupid trendy restaurants where they serve you a spoon with frothed air on it that tastes like lobster macaroni and cheese. No more!

The key to a great first date is danger, magic and a little bit of awkwardness of your own making. Or it’s these seven things that you can click through above to reveal!

Rachel Seville is a writer living in Brooklyn who believes in miracles. Read her blog, Pizza Rulez, here and follow her on Twitter here.

    i would suggest maybe trying to visit a family member or friend in prison or jail? nothing says danger like filling up someone’s commissary and microwaveable cheeseburgers in a visitor’s lounge. plus, you get to take pictures, and the date gets felt up by the guards…who doesn’t want that?
