Finding the perfect date spot is almost as stressful as picking the outfit.

Date Ideas Prompt: What Are The Most Romantic, Pandemic-Approved Spots In Your City?

You know how they say first comes love, then comes marriage? Well, they skipped over the part where it's first comes getting asked out, then comes choosing the first date spot. Because, honestly, finding the perfect place to meet your crush for your first date is almost as stressful as picking the outfit.

Fortunately, with creators all over the map, Swoon can make things a bit easier for everyone and we want to hear from YOU. When it comes to your town or city, where are the date night hot spots that safe enough to go during the pandemic? The most romantic ideas for couples in your area? We want a list! Not only because we're curious, but because others definitely are, too (and they'll certainly share it or save said list for later, so it's a win-win).

Plus, it's simple! All you have to do is brainstorm your top spots and voila! Here's exactly what you should do:

How To Participate:

  • Create an Odyssey account if you don't have one already
  • Create a new post in a listicle format and use this headline structure: # Best Date Spots (Or Ideas) In City, State
    • Make the list at least 10 or more date spots/ideas!
    • Try making the number of spots/ideas on the list an odd number, as these perform the best.
    • Use Instagram embeds throughout the list to bring each date spot/idea to life.
      • Choose specific locations or ideas that can only be done in your city, not general things that can be done anywhere. Example: "Hike to the Hollywood Sign to watch the sunset" instead of "Go on a hike."
    • Share the finished article with each of the locations who made the list! They might want to share on their own social channels.
    • If you need help brainstorming or workshopping, email taylor.mead@theodysseyonline.com
  • Publish the story and file it under Community: Relationships

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
