Today is full of superstitions. Some people won't even go out on Friday the 13th - never mind schedule something important. Like a date.
I consider myself more particular than superstitious. I don't have a lucky top or bracelet that I always have to wear. But if I showed up to a date with a pair of earrings that wasn't quite right with my outfit, I'd convince myself that the whole thing was going to go wrong.
I also believe in jinxes. I don't like to get too ahead of myself, or get my hopes up, out of fear that I will give my good fortune a case of bad luck. I prefer to be cautiously optimistic, especially when it comes to matters of the heart.
But there are plenty of superstitions when it comes to dating. People don't like to stray from certain lucky habits, or patterns, for fear that if they do - the date will surely fail.
- Pick your lucky place
- Wear your lucky shirt
- Don't arrive too early or too late
- The method you use to confirm the day of
- Who orders first
- Who pays
- Don't set up a date for Friday the 13th
I would actually love to set up a date on a Friday the 13th - especially a first date. How cool would it be to tell that story when you're still together a year later?
"Yup - Friday the 13th is lucky for us!" Maybe you'd even get married on a Friday the 13th. Or Saturday the 14th.
I guess it's all a matter of how you look at things.
