While a lot of people used to be pretty into the whole idea of taking their date out to a movie and dinner as a hookup, that whole concept is pretty much dead nowadays. There are a lot of reasons for this, and those reasons should be acknowledged before you try to drag your hookup out into this kind of cliched, old-fashioned date. She really isn’t going to enjoy this kind of scenario, so make sure you skip it, and really think of other ways to make her enjoy her evening out with her. Trust us, there are many of them, so you don’t need to be stuck in this old cliche.
The Movie Crowd is Too Young
Movie theatre dates are honestly for the younger crowd. Whenever you hear about a guy bringing his girlfriend out on a dinner and a movie date, they’re usually in high school. This isn’t really the kind of mature, intimate atmosphere that you’re looking for on your hookup, and that’s why we highly recommend that you skip the whole theatre idea, and go for something classier and more high-brow.
The other thing is that if you’re watching a movie and things start getting hot and heavy, you’re really not going to be able to do anything about it. There’s no reason to bring your hookup out to the theatre with that in mind; keep her at home, or go to a hotel, and enjoy a movie in privacy where the two of you can actually enjoy yourselves as you end up seeing fit.
It’s Just Not Classy
Dinner and a movie just sounds boring. Even if you’re doing casual dating and just hooking up, you still want to be able to impress her, and trust us, a movie isn’t going to do that. We highly recommend that you opt for a hotel bar or a classy, simple but elegant restaurant to take her to, all before just sweeping her off her feet to a hotel room. This will go over much better than a boring romantic comedy that you’ll both wish you didn’t have to sit through before the actual sex.
It Gives The Wrong Impression
That’s the other thing that a lot of people seem to forget: you’re just there for the sex, and that’s why the traditional, dinner and a movie date really doesn’t work. It gives the wrong impression and really implies that you want more out of the relationship than you actually do. If you really wanted to just hookup with her, you’d take her to a hotel and you two would get down to business. The movie thing just implies that you really want to date her like in the 1950s, and that’s really not something that you want to deal with.
The best way to avoid her being clingy is to set standards and boundaries from the very beginning. If you can do that–and you can, trust us–then you’ll be much better off overall.
