But I gotta, kn-kn-kn-know what-what's your fan-ta-ta-sy??!!! ;)

Aside from freakishly obsessed women, The Bachelor brings something else to the table that got me thinking tonight as I watched my dvr-ed episode over leftovers and iced water in my wine glass. Yes, The Bachelor got me thinking about wonder-fabulou-terrific dates. I mean...the show is full of wisking the women off to crazy amazing dates that credit the Bachelor with what was actually ABC's creativity. Okay, aside from all that.. there are multiple women on each date, so maybe it's not the perfect scenario.. and the tv cameras kinda kill the ambiance.. Okay.. blah blah.. But, hey.. what's YOUR DATE? You know what I mean....THE. DATE. that if you could have.. with Mr. Perfect, you'd totally swoon?

Got me thinkin'.

I'm not the materialistic type...at.all. I'm WAY more into sentiment...I think it totally depends on the person.. and what you KNOW is important to them.. aka.. how they express they care. If that's over playing sports, riding go-karts, taking a long walk on a beach, romantic dinner, volunteering together...whatever... I mean...there are MANY "perfect" dates. I guess what I'm saying is I think having an ideal anything sometimes baffles me b/c the truly "ideal" changes with people...and with time...and with circumstance... It's like the girls that try to pick out their "perfect" engagement ring before they even MEET the "perfect" guy. If any of you do that, I'm sorry to insult... But, to me.. I just can't wrap my mind around it. Whatever.

That said....

The dates on The Bachelor are typically over-the-top. Soooooo....If you could choose any over-the-top date, what would it be?? Mine?? Well, since you asked.. or are at least still reading...

I'm SUCH a planner and a slight control freak..okay, okay.. so a TOTAL control freak...So, I'd love it if someone somehow got me off on a tangent controlling something else..or planning something to where I didn't pick up any sign of the date-ness b/c I'd be too busy..haha... I'm a sleuth...and relentless...and frankly quite annoying. So, the whole surprise thing is an element in this.

Here's the deal.. I think it would be AWESOME if someone totally planned EVERY.THING. from the start.. to the finish.. I mean.. I could have choices in between.. but from a list that he pre-determined. Okay.. sooooo... when I say plan everything.. I mean.. EVERYTHING.. from me showing up in sweats or whatever on a Saturday afternoon only to have him surprise me with something fabulous to wear (which would mean he'd have to get the size right...and my taste.. hello major points awarded...), flowers, whatever.. with really anything amazing planned... I mean.. my mind went everywhere from dinner to overnight trip to carriage ride (I think I lived in the Old South in a former life. Strange obsession with carriages. Dont ask) to well.. doing something totally spontaneously awesome like slow dancing on a yacht... I guess thing about my fabulous date would be letting me totally rely on HIS plans with a hint of fun, romance.. and something that kept me guessing.

Moral: Yeah, the dates on The Bachelor are nice.. but I don't really need a yacht, a rented out gourmet restaurant, or even a horse drawn carriage, but hey...a little spoiling and romance from a Prince Charming never hurt any girl's fantasy date, right? ;) So much more goes into it, but there's no point in boring ya. Just wanted to get ya thinkin...

ha. I'm a planner too. And I like to be in control. HOWEVER, I hate to make right-this-second decisions. Perhaps it would be ideal if I could go on a date where everything was already decided. Maybe not the food, but still. 'course, I'd still need to know the planned events in advance.
