Thread: Recommend Me a Light for a First Date

    Default Recommend Me a Light for a First Date

    OK Guys.

    It's time to impress that special woman on that first date.
    Forget the Ferrarri, forget the Armani suit. The fancy bars and restaurants.
    If you're honest, the only dilemma that's really worth giving some thought to is the kind of flashlight that you'll be taking along to that awkward occasion.
    Things could go swimmingly well, things could get hazardous, things could get hot.
    So how well prepared are you?
    What are you gonna equip yourself with?
    A small ergonomically designed led, dangling on a keychain, or a modest pocket thrower or even that full spec tactical military mini-photon explosion that you've modded and powered from half the earth's core?
    What's it gonna be?
    I never go anywhere without a light of some kind on me. Day or Night. No exceptions.
    First date, well, no question, my trusty little Fenix LD10.

    A flashlight is out then.

    No, actually the suit and the restaurant are good ideas.

    Thinking a flashlight will impress and taking one for that purpose could certainly make it an awkward occasion.


    So how well prepared are you?
    What are you gonna equip yourself with?
    Chocolates, corsage and condoms.

    I actually have a collection of lights for various medical purposes. You want to impress her, get the ones used for laparoscopic cholecystomy.

    Make a little background check on your would-be date. Is she, by nature, also fond of gadgets? ( even just a little bit). Bringing a light with you would help...just wait for her to ask about it. If she is not, then just put in your pocket, 'test the waters' and pray for a power failure! You know, we can be weird to some people, as some people can be weird to us too! One man's hobby can be a crazy idea to another, while another man's crazy idea can be another man's hobby! Don't be so preoccupied of making a good impression.. you just might overdo it...just have fun

    Funny. Ok, yeah ... Forget the suit and car, it's all about the light. It should be handy, bright, unobtrusive and never displayed or mentioned unless needed or pertainent. Long run time better than unsustainable turbo, having both is better still... Uh, there's so many battery/diameter/chemistry inuendos but I'll be a square and leave this rich material for other posters.So in all seriousness, a small light with an adjustable warm or neutral high CRI, floody or wide, blended hot spot would make a good subliminal impression. For any Rambo/Hero scenarios, a can of mace or some serious Jacky Chan skills would be more useful than a tactical light.
    The brighter the light, the darker the shadow.

    I really resisted posting in this thread, but, if you need a flashlight on your first date, you have other issues.

    HA! The subtle innuendo there is just perfect.

    Seriously - put a fauxton on you keychain, leave your lights at home and impress the girl with yourself.

    The more grotty of childish posts have been removed, considering the topic of the original post I guess it's inevitable that some members found it too difficult to control themselves. - Norm
