It always seems like, in the world of dating, there’s an ebb and flow of interest. It’s like once you meet one person, there’s this telekinesis that signals other women to reach out to you as well. It’s the weirdest thing and for a while it felt like I was either secluding myself in my house or practically living in my car taking last-minute detours to meet up with women. I’d be leaving work on my 45-minute commute south ready to kick back for the night when Tinder would buzz my phone with a notification.
Suddenly, if I was lucky, I was making last-minute decisions to turn the car around and suddenly I was heading 30 minutes north to meet up with someone from a dating app. Between a 10 hour day and a 30-minute commute and having my daughters half the time, it was hard enough to find time to go on dates so when the opportunities arose I jumped on them – but actually having time to prepare for those dates was seemingly just as difficult.
Sometimes there just wasn’t any way to swing rushing home after work and speeding through another shower. I just had to hope and pray my deodorant and body wash was holding steady through my 10 hours sitting in an office chair before heading off to a date.
I quickly found having these 10 essential items in my car played an important role in both being ready for a date amidst my busy life and secondly, perhaps more importantly, helped ensure I was heading to work from her place the next morning…unless you’ve prepared for her to stay at your place.
Deodorant and Body Spray
A lot can happen between your morning routine and date night. I don’t care if you work in an office or a factory, by the time the day is over there’s a good chance all that BO and perspiration protection has worn off. A quick little spritz is enough to catch her attention.
Breath Mints or Gum
I suppose this is the quintessential item if you’re going in for that kiss later. At least you’ll know it’s not your shit breath as the reason for rejection.
Finger Nail Clippers
My grandpa always kept nail clippers in his shirt breast pocket and I always wondered why. Right up until I was sitting at work one day and realized my nails were looking a little unkempt from all the rushing around. I had been showering at a gal’s house for the last 3 days living out of a suit case and asking to borrow her nail clippers just seemed weird to me.
Nothing is more of a buzz kill to fingering a woman than cutting her clip and scratching up her G-spot with long, nasty fingernails.
I’m not sure if that’s why my grandpa kept clippers in his pocket, but I can assure you that’s exactly why I headed to the store to by a pair for emergency hygiene needs before a date.
You see the theme here? Hygiene!
I sit in an office chair 10 hours a day during the week and the amount of testicle sweat that accumulates at my taint is…a lot. I don’t know if I need better breathing underwear or if I need to swipe a strip of deodorant up my ball sack, but regardless I do know wet wipes are a life saver.
You know how earlier I mentioned breath mints would at least ensure you don’t get rejected for a kiss over gross breath. Well, let’s make sure it isn’t because you got some gunk all up in between your teeth either.
You’ve got pain medication to ease a head ache in your medicine cabinet, but do you have some in your car? Keeping some tablets on hand is wise in case you have a rough morning or if you’re heading to a date after a long day at work with a throbbing migraine. Keep that brain pain in check so you can feel your best and get something throbbing later.
Plus, you’re prepared if she ends up needing to calm a headache and we’re all about the brownie points. Hopefully, you weren’t the cause of it though.
Umbrella & Sport Coat
Cause that way you can be a fucking gentleman if it’s raining and cold.
I can assure you, if you drape a sports coat over her shoulders and hold an umbrella over her head, you’re going to get laid that night.
Okay, so maybe I can’t assure you, but she’s going to take note.
I’m an Android user who apparently mostly hooks up with IPhone users based on the number of times I found myself with a low battery at a woman’s house and no way to charge it. Plus, it gives you a great reason to forget something plugged in at her place…I would never suggest that, though…
