Your game is only as good as your last date. Move out of the movie-and-dinner comfort zone and dazzle every kind of woman stereotype—er, personality, all over again with this game-upping guide:

THE FOODIE, GOURMAND
Stuff your faces silly/swanky 

Date

Game plan: Dating a food lover can’t be all that difficult. The tricky part is choosing which food to lay waste on...with the inclusion of your date, of course. Figure out her food tastes via a quick look at her Instagram posts, then narrow your selections from there.

If she shows an appreciation for fine food, you can’t go wrong with Vask Modern Tapas & Gastronomic Cuisine (BGC, Taguig), where the kitchen boss is Chef Jose Luis “Chele” Gonzalez, who is known to have worked at some of the best restaurants in the world.

If she’s more downtown than uptown, a trip to the Legazpi Sunday Market or the Salcedo Saturday Market, any one of the Metro’s banchettos, or Yummy magazine’s annual food fair, should make for a fun and gastronomically satisfying day.

Bring: Motilium/anti-motilium. Depending on your distance from the nearest restroom.


THE ADVENTUROUS TYPE
Thrill, don't chill 
Date

Game plan: So she’s a thrill junkie. Having wheels for a long drive makes you a candidate for spending the day at SandBox. The adventure park at Porac, Pampanga has plenty of gravity-defying attractions that will literally take her breath away. From the giant swing to the roller-coaster zipline, you’ll have your date clinging to you like a limpet (or the other way around).

Want to stick closer to home? Head over to Flying Trapeze Philippines (The Fort) where you and your girl can pretend to be circus acrobats. To avoid wetting yourself and wrecking your chances of getting another date ever, here’s a bit of advice: don’t think, just jump.

Bring: Paracetamol. And courage—lots of courage.


THE HIGH-MAINTENANCE GIRL
High-roller it out

Date

Game plan: Make your girl feel special by taking her on a private cruise along Manila Bay. It’s not cheap. A few hours can set you back by at least P15,000 docked. If you want an actual cruise, you need to pay double that—plus extra charges for onboard roses, a sax player, and a violinist. But, hey, if you have money to burn, why not?

Bring: An arm and a leg. Expect to be broke right after.


THE KID-AT-HEART
Geeks unite

Date

Game plan: She can argue with you point per point on the differences between the Marvel and DC universe. She listens to Night Vale and she collects Bax Bears. In other words, a girl after your own heart. For a fun date, take her to Secret Fresh over at the Ronac Art Center (San Juan) or drop by Heroes Concept Store at Bonifacio High Street. Both places offer lots of amazing collectibles.

Bring: Random trivia that she doesn’t already know.
