It seems like everybody has more and more things to do with less and less time to do them. Between sports, clubs, family, finding something to watch on netflix, watching netflix, realizing you spent too much time trying to find something to watch and then having to stop before you finish, playing iPhone games, browsing random websites, texting, snapchatting, tweeting, reading Kimye’s twitter, instagramming, yik-yakking, stalking people you have a crush on, stalking people you hate, browsing urban dictionary for the latest and sickest disses and homework swiping through tinder, it can be hard to find the time to go on a full-fledged date with your special someone.  Here are some date ideas that are quick but still help keep the romance:

1. The classic “drive him/her home” from school in your car. It’s helpful and romantic. Best of all, you find out where he/she lives.

2. Meet him/her by her the gym in between classes. This is great because any bad smell you have will be masked by the general foul odor of freshman who haven’t yet quite figured out how deodorant or showers work. Plus, if you get lucky you’ll get a visit from the local football coach, Hanson. This one’s for the guys: be warned. Hanson will make all your funny, go-to anecdotes look lame in comparison to his stories of his youth. Be careful though, this only works on block days, so plan accordingly. Make sure to keep the PDA to a minimum, you scalawags.

3. Help him/her take out her garbage. Everybody needs to do it and it takes about five minutes. Plus, there’s nothing like bonding over the things he/she throw away that week. Also, it’s great exercise to keep off those pounds that always seem to creep up on you no matter how much cardio you do. Like, come on. I went running every day this week and I still gained half a pound.

4. When you see him/her in the hallways at school, accidently bump into them and knock them to the ground. Then you’ll have more time to bond over your extreme clumsiness while helping him/her pick up his/her things. This will also serve to embarrass him/her in front of everybody, which is a great thing to discuss on the first date you’ll ask him/her out on while they’re on the floor. Also, make sure you have their concussion baseline test on file in case things go poorly.

5. Stand in line with them to get lunch at the school cafeteria. Especially considering how slow the Yorktown cafeteria is and how many people have to pay cash everyday when they could easily put a lot of money on their account and not hold up the line everyday, this could take even longer than five minutes — more bonding time. This is great for those of you whose S.O. doesn’t want to sit at your lunch table because they don’t like your lame friends and they want to sit with their cool friends. No, no, it’s great. I like being reminded of my lower social standing but, you know, sometimes it would be nice if you could show me off to your friends the same way I show you off to mine.
