In this episode of our relationship podcast Something Like Marriage, Jon and I discuss weird dates and how they can stretch you out of your comfort zone. We attended the Northwest Regional Air Guitar Championships held in Portland, Oregon where we witnessed the techniques of guitarists who are judged on their costumes, techniques, and other things we have no idea about.
This date was challenging for me because I like to nest in the space I am in. I wasn’t too excited to head out to an old porn theater to watch people play pretend guitars. Sometimes, watching Netflix is far more comfortable. Yet, I trusted Jon to plan a date which ended up to be the best comedy show we have ever seen! I couldn’t stop laughing at the strange costumes – spandex leotards, tighty whities, and tear away pants.
We encourage you to take your girl/guy out on a weird date to experience something fun outside of your comfort zone. If you are interested to learn more about air guitar competitions, check out these short clips from our weird date night.
