Aug 10, 2012 —  It’s kind of weird how it happens. Suddenly, you find your thoughts meandering to that certain someone instead of yourself all the time – you’re involuntarily smiling and there’s a certain glow about you. Call it what you will, Cloud 9, lust, an ungodly phenomenon; it’s a physical sensation unlike any other. And it hits you like a ton of bricks, you actually like this person!

And so you take the next best course of action…you try to snap out of it. The problem is you just can’t shake the thought of them and it’s never going away until you suck it up and actually ask them out on a date. Now, there are obviously a million date ideas out there: new bar, new restaurant, dinner and a movie, etc, etc. But if you really like this person and want to actually get to know them – and not just biblically – take them out during the day and show them what you’re really made of.

Here’s the thing, if you can stand the sheer presence of that special someone for an excursion during daylight hours, subsequent to that night of absolute drunken debauchery, then we’re pretty certain it’s a harbinger of many more happy ending returns (yes, biblically).

So start out with these tried and true recommendations to win your new crush over –  that is assuming you actually strum up the courage to do so.

    Get Touristy in Los Angeles: Rent a convertible. Drive up Beverly Glenn to Mulholland Drive and go east. Follow the winding paths and stop at each scenic overlook along the way. The good ones are the Universal City Overlook and the Hollywood Bowl Overlook. Impress them with your Hollywood history on the south side and how ‘you’ve heard’ every porn movie is shot in the valley on the north side. After you’ve soaked up the city, get off on the eastern side of Mulholland and head south on La Brea to Mashti Malone’s Ice Cream. Rose water ice cream is heaven sent.

    Get Sporty in New York: If your date is the adventurous type, head over to Chelsea Piers where you can hit golf balls into the Hudson, bowl a few frames, and then spot each other’s assets on the 30 foot climbing wall. Afterward, stroll down 17th Street and pop up onto The High Line park where they offer Fitness and Movement classes as well as Pilates. Stretch each other out, playfully flirt amongst the art exhibits and then stay later on for some seductive stargazing with the Amateur Astronomers Association.

    Get High in Chicago: Nothing takes the wind out of you quite like a death-defying stare-down from 90 stories up. Hop on the L and take an architecture tour of the Windy City. Some of the must see spots are the Marquette Building, the Rookery, the Federal Center, Willis Tower, Trump Tower, and the John Hancock Center. Finish off at Signature Lounge on the 96th floor of the Hancock building and sip martinis while staring out at the amazing skyline.

    Get Smart in DC: Start your day at the Spy Museum on 8th and F. After you learn how to smuggle in cocaine by turning it into a TV, head due south where you’ll pass the US Navy Memorial and then run straight into the National Gallery of Art. ‘Accidentally’ brush up against each other as you learn about Matisse’s cutouts and Degas’ Tub before heading back outside where the entirety of the National Mall awaits you. Venture west for the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial, east for the Capitol, south for the Air & Space Museum and northwest for P.O.V. Rooftop Terrace and Lounge for drinks and views of the whole city.

    Get Weird in San Francisco: Nothing symbolizes the iconic era of the late 1960s quite like the Haight. And there’s nothing quite like strolling down Haight Street to inspire endless conversation on a day date. Peruse the markets, shops, and ever present street art as you pass by aging hippies, tie-dye wearing buskers, and the ever-present aroma of hookah tobacco and legalized marijuana. Once your contact high officially kicks in, you can kill the munchies with world class wines and Italian delicacies at Uva Enoteca (568 Haight Street).

    Get Lit in Boston: Let’s face it. You’re in Boston. It’s daytime. There’s really only one thing to do. Get your butt to Fenway Park, stuff your collective faces with dogs and beer, then head back out and bar hop up and down Lansdowne Street until you can no longer see straight. Finish off the day-crawl at Cask’n Flagon as you sloshily tell each other secrets that should be reserved for date #6.

Get Touristy in Los Angeles: Rent a convertible. Drive up Beverly Glenn to Mulholland Drive and go east. Follow the winding paths and stop at each scenic overlook along the way. The good ones are the Universal City Overlook and the Hollywood Bowl Overlook. Impress them with your Hollywood history on the south side and how ‘you’ve heard’ every porn movie is shot in the valley on the north side.

Definitely better with a convertible, as I imagine any date would be compared to a '98 Corolla

New York is perfect for a daytime walking date...pick your spot in the city and just go. Stroll through Central Park, go museum hunting, or even make your own pub crawl (you can do an east/west crawl or north/south crawl). There is always something to drink and eat along the way...and being in New York you are guaranteed to find something entertaining on the streets.

Another fun day date idea in LA is to buy one of the star maps on the side of the road and attempt to figure out where all the celebrity homes are. Also better with a convertible, and the maps are usually REALLY outdated, but you'll still have fun scoping out the amazing houses throughout the Hollywood Hills.

Love the Boston day date idea. There's nothing like Boston!

Picnic on the Highline in New York is a great day date. Amazing what the city of new york created by turning that old railroad line into a park. In DC, I prefer a stroll around Georgetown and the waterfront there to the national mall.

Go to the Tidal Basin in DC and rent paddle boats and hope that you don't suddenly feel the need to get away from your date.
