420 Dating: 4 Easy Tips to Wow Your Date
So you’ve been talking to this cute af 420-friendly babe on Tinder and you’ve both agreed that you want to meet up for a date. Exciting stuff!
Knowing you, one of your dating profile pictures features you with a blunt, your favorite bong, or one of your famous perfectly rolled joints. Your new date knows that you’re down with the dank, and they probably are too, so there’s no need to beat around the bush about it.
However, just because you both love smoking weed, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to impress them! You already know you’re awesome – so show them why!
Here are some tips to turn your 420 dating experience into something that’ll be a total game changer.
1. Don’t be a stereotype.
When you don’t know too much about your date other than the fact that they like to smoke weed as much as you do, be careful that all of your 420 dating doesn’t accidentally turn into a stereotype. Unless it really is part of your unique style, leave the Bob Marley playlist, tie-dye t-shirts, and your hemp-woven jacket/poncho/thing at home. You know which one I’m talking about.
Instead, try surprising your date by showing them the diverse aspects of your personality that aren’t necessarily associated with the “stoner” stereotype. They’ll love learning about how you love to cook, know tae kwon do, or that you speak Italian, and you smoke. It’ll be refreshing to them and it will add another dimension to who they thought you were. They’ll be even more impressed when they find out that you’re breaking stereotypes and are being a subtle advocate for cannabis. Very sexy.
2. Shake up the traditional date.
Unless your date loves a classic dinner/movie combo, let’s be real. The traditional dates are a little overdone. You can show off your unique personality by suggesting a more exciting and cannabis-friendly date. For example, if you just want to Netflix and chill and smoke with your new potential boo, shake it up a little. Ask them if they want to cook a meal with you and then watch a movie after. It’ll give you a chance to share a joint while you both work together to cook up some dank. You’ll also have time to get to know each other and get a little more comfortable before cuddling up for a movie.

3. Admit you’re nervous!
Bet you didn’t see that one coming. This one seems counter-intuitive because confidence while dating is everything. But no matter how confident you and your date are, you’re probably both nervous! Admitting that you are a little nervous will not only break the ice, but it’ll show your date that you care enough to have feelings about meeting them. It’ll also show that you’re not afraid to be a little vulnerable and share semi-intimate feelings which may inspire your date to do the same. A little nerves on a first date is healthy and normal!
Even 420 dating can be nerve-wracking, no matter how “chill” stoners are supposed to be. Sharing your feelings while also maintaining a certain level of confidence is a killer combination, but be careful not to go overboard with both. Don’t be so confident that you come off as arrogant, and don’t spill your guts (at least not on the first date). Leave them with a little mystery. Just spark up a bowl and show your date the awesome person that you really are.
4. Suggest a wake-n-bake and stretches in the morning.
If you listened to the top three tips, you may end up with your date the following morning! You feel awesome, and your date, who was peacefully sleeping next to you, is waking up too with a big smile on their face. But what do you do now? Jump out of bed and start making breakfast? Quickly get your clothes and tell them you have to go home to feed your dog? If this is the kind of date you’d like to keep around, you probably don’t want to do the latter.
Instead, suggest that you two try some morning stretches after a lovely wake-n-bake to get the day started on the right foot. Stretching in the morning after a wake-n-bake feels amazing and your 420 cutie will associate you with that great feeling.
