Well, because I’m married with 3 kids, date night is pretty rare. We’ve yet to find a babysitter that can handle our kids. So I’m signing in.

Seriously John? You want the people not on dates to check in and look sad and pathetic?

I quit dating 2 years ago. Too much work, and, I finally got really clear that I am not willing to give up one tiny bit of my space and freedom. Hey..I have plenty of friends and turbo jets in the hot tub. Men-O- pause is a good time. lol

John, did you mean that about Fluther being my “closet” friend or was that a typo for “closest”? Either one works, both had me chuckling. I’m having a lot of fun here tonight, but then I don’t really do the “date” thing so much anymore…

I had my date-day and evening earlier with my DH. I’m enjoying sitting at home with him now, talking back and forth between computers and Bluegrass music in the background.

Married, no date. Happily home. :)

Coloma's avatar

@bkcunningham Oooh, I’m going to go for some bluegrass…Old and in the waaay. I hear Jerry singing. :-)

Hanging out with my son.

bkcunningham's avatar

I mean Bluegrass music, @Coloma. Not some type of brownie mix. lol ; )

Coloma's avatar

@bkcunningham Me too, I’m talking about the the “Old and in the way” album with Jerry Garcia…look it up, great bluegrass tunes!

Milo here; This is what I did on my last date night. Oddly, she has not returned my calls.

Gail here; My wildly exciting evening is about to end with my attempting to squirt Milo’s stool softener med. down his throat without him raking me from stem to stern.

I am here, trying to give advice about soup. I have no idea what anyone else would be doing on a Saturday night LOL.

gailcalled's avatar

-@Kardamom: The soup advice had better be directed my way. I have earned my treat.

How loosely are we defining date? I have a read-aloud date with my husband later tonight. But it’s not a conventional date night by any stretch.

chyna's avatar

@Jeruba To me, that counts as a real date.

haha just noticed it says ‘closet friend’ haha – oh I can’t quit giggling

Coloma's avatar

I have a “date” with my ranch vet coming up…he’s hot when he’s injecting the west nile virus on the geese and horses. oooh baby…inject me. lol
I could probably seduce him, but then what? hahaha

Pandora's avatar

I’m with @augustlan on this. Happily married. But if I wasn’t , I don’t think anyone could tempt me to want to go out in cold rainy weather.

I’m home with one of my daughters. I’m fine. We’ll play a game. She’ll get lost in something on the Internet. We’ll read. Finally, we’ll sleep.

I gotta date tonight with a lovely jelly, later suckers!


Berserker's avatar

I didn’t have a date, but Fluther isn’t my closest friend. Still, I’ll sign in; ’‘draws a skull with a knife through it on the page’’

Moll here. I’m home with my sweetheart.

Sunny2's avatar

I watched “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” with the company I’m most at ease with, myself.

Jeruba's avatar

@chyna, in that case I oughtn’t to be in this thread. We had a nice rendezvous with our current book.

I did not go on a date tonight. I went to a friends birthday party, where I sat with another friend under a knock-off snuggy that was super soft and had a pattern of different dog breeds on it and observed the party and the college scene from afar. I thought that was pretty hilarious. I don’t go to house parties often and when I do, I’m reminded why I don’t. At least not house parties where everyone wants to listen to 50 cent rather than Hall and Oates or Earth Wind and Fire (yes that really happened, I couldn’t believe it either). Does that make me antisocial or just not an idiot? Im not really sure.

downtide's avatar

I was at home all evening but by the time you posted this it was already the wee hours of the night and I was fast asleep.

bongo's avatar

@MollyMcGuire Surely a night in with your sweetheart is a datenight? I stayed in with my mate and my boyfriend I would count that as a datenight with a 3rd wheel. You don’t have to go out to be on a “date” surely?

jca's avatar

JCA – single mother, was not on a date last night.

cazzie's avatar

Never goes on dates and could really really use a date, but was not, of course, on one last night, nor will I have a date on Valentines Day or next weekend which is Mother’s Day here. How did I miss this? Time difference, I think.
