The Four Sefiros of First Dates

5 Jan

There are many aspects in life in which challenge is welcome, but I think we can all agree that dating is not one of them. So you do hear the occasional story where a rather boorish dater pulls the keys out of the ignition at a red light or suggests using the massage chairs at Brookstone, but most people try to play it safe.  Especially on a first date.

As an official inductee of the the shidduch parsha, I have noticed a few things about first dates:

A) They have the potential to be incredibly awkward

B) They have the potential to be incredibly boring

C) They have the potential to be chilled out and enjoyable

Since A and B are options we would like to leave in the world of the hypothetical, I have broken down the plethora of first date possibilities into four sefiros, each one a little more advanced than the other:

1. The Coffee Date

2. The Restaurant Date

3. The Activity Date

4. The Store-Museum-Any-Place-You-Can-Only-Look-At-Stuff Date

If you think of any more sefiros of first dates, please share. Get ready for the Coffee Date in an upcoming post!

    So as someone from the side that’s tasked with picking out one of those “four sefiros,” which do you like best?

    Well if you’re asking me personally, my only requirement is to have a place to sit and talk, so I would say the Coffee Date. Though the other three are also fun, I think they’re only truly fun when the two parties already know each other pretty well. I’ll speak about it greater depth in later posts so stay tuned!
