If you're dating in New York and you want to make it past three dates, sooner or later you’re going to have to, ugh, try. And despite the infinity awesome NYC date ideas we've given you, you'll inevitably fall back on a few classic New York City standbys, and you'll even more inevitably never get to date No. 5.
Here are 14 alleged “classics” that, at this point, just make you look lazy and/or boring.
1. Ice skating at Rockefeller Center
You go around once and it’s novel. “Ohh, look at the tree, I love you so much, you complete me in every way.” Then you go around a second time and it’s exactly the same. Plus, it’s really cold and you haven’t been on ice skates since you were nine. Head over to the bar downstairs at Andaz 5th Avenue and call it a freaking day.
2. Carriage ride in Central Park
“I want to move at six miles an hour on a hot summer day with flies buzzing around my head as I stare into the ass of a clinically depressed horse with a bag over its face,” said no New Yorker ever. EVER.
3. Anywhere for “the view”
Yeah, I live here, too. I know it’s awesome.
