OT. Much OT. The topic is girls.

This is the perfect time to find out if this is the kind of "girl" that may have long-term potential. If you don't already know, find out what her interests include. If she enjoys the outdoors, go hiking; if she enjoys music, go to a club to see live bands (hopefully you have some kind of club aimed at the younger crowd that has minimal cover charges); if she enjoys games, find a local game shop and go when they demonstrate new games (I think you get the idea here). By showing an interest in her hobbies you may find a new interest of your own, plus you will find out a lot about her and yourself (and whether you two have any kind of future - if you can't stand her hobbies, it is best to find out sooner rather than later).

Like Katalaeia, my husband and I also started dating around that age. I have to agree with the movie thing. Another fun thing might be to get some friends together and go bowling. That's always good for a laugh.

Wintertime sports...find a hill and go sledding, or tubing, have a snowball fight, skiing gets expensive, so I wouldn't go for that, but maybe ice skating.

As for the shopping thing, better see if she likes to shop first. I personally hate to shop, so I can always get my husband to go with me, since he knows there will be no "window shopping" nonsense. I'm there to get what I need and get out.

Oooh. I forgot about bowling. Some of the best laughs we've had were out bowling with another couple or two.

Yes. Girls. It's not that i don't have one, i have been together with my lady for about 125 days now, but. I don't know what do the with her when we are alone. We are going in the same class, but we also see each other after school, pretty obvious :afro:

But what shall a guy of 17, do with a girl of 17, when not screwing?
How charming.

You obviously don't know her very well if you don't know what she likes to do after dating for four months.

I wonder how well, she knows you. Perhaps you should introduce her to some of your interests. This forum perhaps. Yes, you could start with the above post. That should get the two of you communicating.

Stop bashing martinkingss, people! English is not his first language and though I found some parts of his post less-than-very-nice, it's very likely that he could not express himself as correctly and appropriately as he'd like.

As for the original question... Well, I can't come up with anything creative and it seems that I have rather unconventional and even controversial ideas about the subject anyways.

Sure Toppo, as long as you are over 18...I'd hate to wind up in prison. You might want to think twice about it though, not many guys can handle someone who loves Blizzard games, sci-fi books, and hates to shop. OH, WAIT!!

Depressingly enough. I "went out" with a girl for a year and a half. And had no idea what to do. Apart from, well, "alternative exercise."

This was university though. I don't know. We were always busy with our lives doing stuff and getting things in and hanging with friends and what have you; the only times we ever got together to DO stuff, we'd end up whiling our time away in bed / eating. Pretty boring, but well, our lives were jam packed!

I discovered that she was a bit insane, and should have been on medication throughout the entire time we were together, apparently. Something about mild schizophrenic paranoia or something.

Some posts are very funny indeed.

About the original question, I think I can give some advice since I was in that same kind of situation:

1.- Walk. Yeah, that's right, you know it right? With your feet you go across a distance. Taking a walk through a park or some interesting place while talking and watching other persons, things, whatever can be very entertaining and bring on some good topics.

2.- Movies. It isn't that expensive, just buy the tickets, there is no need to buy popcorn or any food, it also leaves spot for a good topic after the movie

3.- Board games: Very nice if you both like the game

4.- Sports: Practicing an sport you both like it's very cheap and can also tight a bond between two people.

5.- Hanging out with her friends or your friends: This can very good if both the friends and yourselves are nice.

Just my $0.02

Edit: Yeah, thanks $6, and about that pic, isn't that a previous from Superdave's? It's really disturbing......
 
At the risk of being beaten, I have to say that I enjoy shopping. Most of my best friends are girls, and they actually ask me to come to the mall with them. Apparently I have good taste. Or maybe it's mild schizophrenia. :wink3:

EDIT: Nice timing A_M. We posted within the same minute.

you should of course introduce her to the lovley world of D2 as soon as possible.

boardgames are also an cheap and decent way of spending time, just don´t win every time :wink3:

If i understand you right you are both heavy metal fans, so tri to find concerts with local bands, i can´t imagine that it would cost much.

(sorry for spelling and grammar, i´m swedish to, and don´t get much time to praktice my english)

Well, just spend time in park like have a walk, or invit her out for some awesome place and have a talk about her life, family life, school life.. And don't interrupt her when she talk. Just listen to her. If she refer problems to you half way, listen to her and help her out if can.

Never met a swedish guy who wasn't into metal. Ok that's it ! Enough !! I want to be Swedish ! Take away all the beaches and sunny weather and summer half the year round ( I mean it's not really October since it 30 degrees celcius here #@%#^% ). I WANT , no no I DEMAND concerts every day ! We get them like 2 worth going per year !!! I mean it's sick. But then again it's cheap.

On topic now, my suggestion may be a little strange but anyway :

The cheapest thing to do with a girl is make out. That's right, make out. It can be really fun, especially with a new girl but once in a while it can be fun with an old gf too. And it's free. And you can do it everywhere. Try things, be creative, be a man. Everyone can do it, it's in our genes. Be charming, let her make feel special, be romantic. It can be pick both your moods. It's not what you are doing in this life, it's who you are doing it with.

Just be yourself. don't be like a hero in front of her. We girls (well, mostly i guess) actually don't really like the guys that we know to behave as if he can actually be superman that can save us from danger. No. Just be yourself.. I'll go and search for a book or site related to this topic and post it here tomorrow.

Good luck on that! :wink3:

Make a batch of cocoa and get one of those 1,000 piece puzzles. You can wile away hours in happy distraction working on it together, talking and getting to know her better as a person.

At night, the ice weasels come.

More please! :thumbsup:

But then, I have some rather twisted and jaded views on relationships, i.e. it's all a formalised ritual of procreation.

Children of Men? No more spawn please! :grin:


EDIT: Ok, to actually be constructive, and putting aside my bitter views, and at the risk of repeating what others have said, you should talk to this lady friend of yours. Communication is key. Discuss things. Share your views. Share your histories. Get to know each other. That's one of the real ways to form a bond with people. Communication.

As for things to do... just do things that you both enjoy. The key here is to have a good time and have a laugh together. If that involves washing the dishes, then do that. If that involves strolling down the beach or a park, then do that. If that involves exchanging reproductive material, then do that. If that involves sex, then do that (I wasn't referring to actual 'reproductive material' earlier on!).

But also remember that all things are best done in moderation. Too much sex fries the brain (and other things as well). Just as much as too much walking down the beach makes it really boring. This is where communication comes in again. Talk to each other, discover new things, and then try those new things.

End of sermon. Enjoy!

martin!!!!!!! I'm from Sweden too, abit older, let me think back at my youth and what I did with the girls... hmm.

Södertälje? Take her for a trip in to Stockholm, if she likes shopping, do that during daytime and enjoy the city. Later on go bowling/see a movie at the cinema, take her out to dinner afterwards. Then go back home and do what you usually do :jig:

When I'm with my girlfriends I usually watch tv or play my xbox while they talk on the phone, then we get it over with, then i play some more and then out to party. The next day I spend hangover and in a bad mood until I can play. Pretty much that's what I do nowadays. Not like when I was young and thought love was a wonderful thing.

As a last example, you can take the girl on a vacation to Cuba for 2 weeks.
