Introduction: How to Secure a Date

Results may vary. I just thought I'd ask my friend on a date a different way. This is just a letter with a reply postcard inside. I prefer to make everything myself, this way it seems like I went out of my way. And its basically free this way.

Materials:
Paper
Pen
Envelope

Optional materials:
Paper
Gluestick
Scissors
Ruler

Step 1: Write the Letter + Postcard

I used cardstock my mom uses for scrapbooking. Luckily enough I could see through it enough to trace the words from my laptop screen. This way you can get decent looking handwriting. I thought about printing it but writing it yourself is always better in my opinion.

The letter reads:

Dear Haley,
I would like to take you on a date. If you get lucky, we could even play boggle.

Please reply with your response.

1st picture is the letter

2nd is the back of the postcard: After I finished it I thought it would have been better if I only had put yes....

3rd is the front of the postcard

Step 2: Make an Envelope

Never done this before. Tried to make measurements. Used a sheet of my mom's scrapbooking paper. Pretty awesome because you have two patterns, or at least one pattern and the other side plain.

I messed up on the envelope pretty bad....

Step 3: Wait to See If Works

I'll update to tell everyone if I got a yes or no.

    Genius, man. And, after one uses this method, there is not turning back at that point.

    thanks, she said yes, but I never took her on the date. She didn't reciprocate my feelings...oh well, many fishies

    From your I'ble's title, I had a image of zip-ties, duct tape, and scented candles. Your idea is much more sensible, and probably more likely to be successful in the long run :-)

    ...what are the candles for? ;P Nice 'ible, very sweet.

    It wouldn't be a date without candles, now would it? And besides, with the zip-ties and duct tape for securing, the candles just add that extra level of creepy malevolence that every good serial killer needs.

    And you wonder why I hide so much on here...

    :-D I presume you remember Wednesday's comment from Addams Family Values, "I'm dressed like a serial killer. They look just like everyone else." :-)

    Love that line, but I thought she said "homicidal maniac", not "serial killer". But I guess they are both essentially the same thing.

    You're probably right, as I was going from memory. The difference between the two, I think, is between desire and success ;-)

    Ah, yes. That does make a lot of sense, as serial killers have committed the act already, and homicidal maniacs only want to.
