Your first date and trick-or-treating could be hauntingly similar. Both require identical preparations and it’s all about wear and where.
Spooky dating ideas: do your Halloween costume ideas run the gamut from French maid, or pirate to Nietzsche, or Little Bo Bleep? Dressing for that first date can be just as daunting.

Dressing for a first date – or selecting a costume- for Trick or Treating on Halloween both require an inordinate amount of time. You want to look really good and make the appropriate statement. You forage through closets and drawers to select the right thing to wear. Women often aim for hauntingly beautiful vixen, vampire, or the girl-next-door costume. Good advice for guys is to appear like more like a superhero, less like a monster.
Deciding where to go Trick or Treating or for a first date requires that you carefully plan and plot. Both parties agree to meeting in a safe, well lighted neighborhood. You naturally avoid ‘dark and spooky,’ at all costs.
Timing is Everything
You’ve got a date! You agree upon the perfect ‘witching hour.’ Your spirits are up, and it’s time! The scariest thing that can happen? You don’t look like your picture. One of you is really spooky, kooky or creepy. Your costume is all wrong. At the end of the night, you want to think, “Sweet!” You don’t want to walk away thinking, “What a witch,” or “What a monster,” and return home empty handed.
Remember: A few kisses are good. Avoid Sours, Nerds, Screaming Yellow Zonkers, Snickers, jawbreakers and gobstoppers. Relax, enjoy one another and skip the trick, have fun and go straight for the ‘treats.’
Happy haunting and happy hunting!
