Online dating is hard. If you happen to find someone with whom you can hold a decent conversation, that’s a win in itself. Making the plan to meet for a first date, and then actually going through with it is a whole different ball game. There are just so many factors to consider: Where do you meet? What do you wear? What if they chew with their mouth wide open? What if they’re not a dog person? You get it.
Sometimes, though, it’s easy because your date takes a cue from your profile. That being said, make sure your “ideal date” is something you’re actually prepared to do. In one woman’s case, she apparently ended up on a first date at Costco.
Betches posted the tweet from the now-deleted Twitter account of MRS SPRINKLED DONUT (@Sprinkledsarah67), which read: My Hinge profile said my ideal first date would be Costco … this guy took it seriously” followed by photos of sample stations and soft serve from the warehouse grocery store.
Costco would not be my ideal first date, but to each their own. It would be nice because you could eat samples galore without having the awkward who’s-paying-for-what situation, and it’s big enough that you could just weave through the aisles toward the exit if the Costco connection wasn’t happening. Just kidding — kind of.
Apparently, though, Costco dates are a thing, and there are plenty of people who are up for it. Costco-lovers, maybe this is where you find your match. You’re SO welcome!
These are the kind of folks I’d imagine might get food-related engagement photos taken. Take this couple’s Sonic shoot, for example. Or these super sweet engagement pictures taken at Cracker Barrel.
Do MRS SPRINKLED DONUT and her Costco cutie have a Costco photo shoot or even engagement in their future? Only time will tell, but there will certainly be enough champagne in bulk to celebrate, if so. Everyone raise your free samples to that!
