Ask the Savvy Stoner: Best Date Ideas for Stoners
Dear Savvy Stoner,
I’ve been seeing a new guy for about a month now, and I really like him, but we never go out anywhere. We both like to get high, so most of the time we end up just chilling at his apartment watching movies and smoking.
I’m okay with the marijuana, but it gets kind of boring just sitting around all the time. How can I get my boyfriend to leave the house and take me on an actual date for a change? And where should we go if I get him to agree?
Couch-locked in Denver
Haven’t you ever watched Scooby Doo? The problem with your boyfriend is easy to solve. Just like Velma had to bribe Shaggy and Scooby with Scooby snacks if she needed them to do her a favor, all you’ve got to do is use the right type of treats to tempt your boyfriend out of the house.
Since your boyfriend loves to get high, make marijuana a part of the date. The best date ideas for stoners involve marijuana smoking as well as plenty of relaxation and opportunities for creative fun. You don’t want the date to sound too complicated, and if your boyfriend is the homebody type, it would be best to avoid large crowds, especially if you’re planning to smoke some pot on your date. One idea you might try is to roll up a blunt and invite your boyfriend on a nice picnic. Pick somewhere that’s secluded so you’ll have some privacy, enjoy your meal in the sunshine, then blaze up your blunt. Or take few joints out on a hike and smoke them periodically along the way. Another good date idea for stoners is to take a marijuana dispensary tour at Medicine Man Denver, where you can visit their growing facility and check out the best strains they have to offer. Or, you might take a tour of a glassblowing studio like The Furnace Glassworks. You can watch artisans blow glass, pick out a new smoking accessory to purchase, then head back home or somewhere else private to try out your new piece.
If you want to really go all out and have the ultimate stoner date, book a tour or activity with Colorado Cannabis Tours. CCT offers many unique experiences especially designed to appeal to stoners like you and your boyfriend. Take a marijuana cooking class together, enjoy a painting and pot smoking session, or blaze out in the back of a limo while you cruise around to Denver’s best marijuana attractions.
If all else fails, tell your boyfriend that you need to go to the marijuana dispensary, and just happen to stop for dinner and a movie along the way. Or, tell him there’s weed hidden all over your body, but he’ll have to meet you downtown for drinks to get the details. Trust me, with the right incentives, your boyfriend will be lured off the couch in no time.
