There comes a time in most romantic relationships when a guy wants to show his gal that he means business. That he likes her. Really, really likes her. And for this he’s going to want to plan a statement date.
What’s a statement date? Well, there are certain places, certain restaurants that have a special shine to them. A special, pre-approved, everyone has agreed that this is a big deal glow.
For years now, the number one restaurant in NYC for statement dates has been One If By Land, Two If By Sea. It’s on every single survey as the most romantic restaurant in the city. And, well, it’s perfectly nice. It is very romanctic. The food is fine (if you eat out often it will not be the best meal you’ve had all year, or maybe even all month but it may well be the most expensive one). But the fact that you’re there means something. Because it is the most romantic restaurant in NYC, according to every single magazine, etc. And if you’re dating and your guy makes reservations for dinner there then he’s probably telling you something. Something big. Or maybe he wants something from you and assumes that whatever it is, that would seal the deal.
There are lots of possibilities for statement dates. Lots of great romantic restaurants. Lots of ways to show how you feel. It could be as simple as calling a few hours before a date and saying, “Hey, Let’s get dressed up tonight. I made us reservations at someplace I think you’ll like.” And then going someplace you’ve never been before. It doesn’t have to be the most romantic restaurant in town, maybe just someplace a little nicer than the places you usually go.
The Statement Date. It’s just a little way to communicate something big.
