12 (or More) Fatal Things Not to do on a Double-Date
What to write? What not to write?
Lately, I have been doing a little “Hub Surfing,” and I have reached a few conclusions. Some expert-hub writers say that few photos make for a better hub. Then there are hubbers who say that the more photos you have, the more readers, and then followers, you will garner.
I am afraid to take sides. So I am using 10 photos with this piece. I pray that all 10 will be of good resolution for I do not want this story to be “flagged” by HubPages editors. What a shame it is to be “flagged.” It makes you the object of neighborhood ridicule and humiliation.
Double-dating was even popular as far back as 1900
Ahhh, what fun--the double-date
Double-dating is fun as long as people behave
New HubPages writers, pay close attention
So new members of HubPages, I seriously suggest to you that you keep from getting “flagged” by HubPages editors if you want to live happy and accepted by your friends and neighbors.
Now another conclusion I have reached may be up for debate: Does a hub have to be so long that it takes an hour for a reader to digest? This is not a prerequisite for a great hub unless the hub writer is closely-related to Ernest Hemingway. Then again, I have read hubs that were no longer than five paragraphs in length.
So who is right? And whom do I side with? I’ll get back to these burning-questions later.
My story today is about
“12 (or More) Fatal Things Not to do on a Double-Date,”
and I am serious. If you are so foolish as to do one or all of these juvenile acts, then you deserve to be alone.
These couples are on dangerous ground
Some vital information for you
Before I begin, allow me to answer this one question: “What are the benefits of going on a double-date?” Get a pen and paper for you will want to write these down.
- Comfort and protection when you know the partner of the other couple
- Insurance against any “monkey business,” even if your date brings along is pet chimp, “Hershey.”
- Twice the fun with four than two.
- Gives the people with low social skills more dating experience.
What's wrong with the guy to far back right?
And now . . .(are you reading this, HubPages editors who choose Hub of The Week?) . . .and HubPages editors, please judge this hub on its original thought and down-right hilarious text suitable to read at any bachelor party.
