If I had to come up with the date, we’d ride bikes around Governors Island, flop down on the lawn for a picnic and grab some Blue Marble ice cream, then take the ferry back to the city and part ways to freshen up. We’d meet up later in Morningside Heights, eat at Toast and drink some craft beer. We’d walk it off along Broadway and if it was a Friday, head down to Hot Rabbit to dance our asses off. Finally we’d part ways and walk off tired and thinking about each other.” Want to ask her out? E-mail: email@example.com

We can start off downtown at the Meatball Shop. This serves a couple of purposes: First, it’s familiar and comforting. Who doesn’t like a good meatball and a side? Second, I can make jokes about balls for about an hour. If things go well, we can hop across the street to Arlene’s Grocery for Rock ‘n’ Roll Karaoke to have some PBRs and watch people rock out and make fools of themselves. Perhaps we might even partake in the fun after a couple of shots. And that’s it…easy breezy. No need to get all fancy and drop a lot of money; you should always come as you are.”Want to ask her out?

And if we’re hitting it off, we’d move on to something more fun and interactive, like playing bingo at Tortilla Flats, walking on the High Line, or watching skaters fall in Central Park.”Want to ask her out?
