For a change, a relatively postive and normal survey from goo Ranking, looking at surprising places people have been taken to on dates, for bother guys being taken along by girls and girls been taken along by guys.
Over the 4th and 5th of April 2013 1,101 members of the goo Research online monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 50.6% of the sample were male, 23.3% in their teens, 25.2% in their twenties, 25.5% in their thirties, and 26.1% in their forties; there was no-one older than 49 in this sample. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.
Here’s a date, it appears, at a game arcade (or game centre, as they are called in Japan):
I went to them quite a bit while dating, in particular to play the crane games for cuddly toys!
I also don’t find the herb garden too surprising myself – I in fact proposed at one! I’m trying to work out, though, why people would take someone on a date to their school – I think the wording implies after graduation; I suppose if it was a university there may be something interesting to see on campus, but just a plain school..?
