I’ve realized something in my old age… If you go on a classic dinner-and-a-movie date, see the movie FIRST. Back when Alex and I went on our first date, we went to see a thriller first, which gave us a kickstart to our dinner conversation. (That was helpful especially since we were nervous!) We also could eat leisurely and drink wine without worrying about getting sleepy later on. Ever since then, we always go to movies first. I know it’s a little thing, but it makes date nights way more fun, I think. What do you think? Do you usually go to movies before or after dinner? Seen anything good lately?
