Acts of Kindness

Unexpected gestures of kindness, both received and given, can make us happier than even the best date. These tested acts of kindness show you really care.

Date Ideas

Everyone needs a little help finding new and interesting dates. Our articles only suggest dates that we have actually tried ourselves. These date ideas are real, fun, and often inexpensive.

Dating Decency

What do I wear? What do I say? How do I act? While we can’t tell you exactly how to win someone’s heart, we can steer you in the right direction and guide you around the potholes of dating.

Trial & Error

John C. Calhoun once said, “Learn from your mistakes and build on your successes.” In this spirit, we have several articles outlining what went wrong, what went right, and how to do better next time.

A Simple, Meaningful Memento

A Simple, Meaningful Memento

The next time you go on a date and have a little extra time afterwards, tell your partner that you want to get a postcard for a friend. If you live in a town with a lot of tourism, look for a gift shop or souvenir shop. Even if you don’t live in a town with a lot of tourism you can still normally find postcards of your town at a drugstore, such as CVS, Longs Drugs, or Walgreens.

Have your partner help you pick out a good postcard. If possible, find one that relates to the date that you just went on. If you don’t have any stamps, make sure you stop somewhere, such as Wal-Mart or the post office, and pick some up! Thank your date for their help and finish your date.

As soon as you get home, write a note to your date on the postcard. Try to include something memorable from the date in your message, and thank your date for a great time. If your date isn’t familiar with your signature then it is best to print your name rather than signing it.

Address the postcard to your date, put a stamp on it, and drop it in the mail as soon as you can!

Now for the hardest part: wait. Do not hint at, ask about, talk about, or mention the postcard until your date brings it up. You want it to be a complete surprise!
