Anonymous: my girlfriend and I are in high school and have gone to Japan on a school exchange for 3 months together! Everything is going really well and though Japan is a bit conservative we spend our break between classes making out in the locker room :P we’re nearly at the 6 month mark and we’ve never been happier with anyone else I wish I could cuddle with her more but we have to wait till we get home. I’m just so glad to have her here with me. What do u think I should do for her for our 6 month mark?
this is so wonderful to hear!! happy half year to you both! I’m so jealous you get to see your love every day <3 friend, you came to the right place because I could write novels about dates i can’t wait to take my girlfriend on. I’m taking this ask in the direction of what to do for 6 month mark, not what should you get as a gift - let me know if I misread.
I think a lot of this depends on your personality/interests and your girlfriend! here are some ideas that i think might spark and idea or two. I’m only posting dates that I think are special occasion or out of the ordinary - trust me, I have tons more. just ask!
also, the price tag is something to consider! you could have just as much fun, if not more, spending $10 on a date than paying 10 times that amount. It’s still something to think about/possibly discuss, especially since you, anon, are still in high school like myself.
Food adventures (I love food, okay)
classic dinner at a nice restaurant. sounds cheesy, but it could also be really fun. you can dress up, do makeup side-by-side, act all fancy and adult, then come home and surprise her with flowers before and lounging around in sweats playing board games (cards against humanity, anyone?)
restaurant-hopping date… go to one restaurant for appetizers, then move on to another for a soup/salad etc etc for main course, dessert, and then end with drinks at a cafe.
try some really exotic food, if you’re both up for the challenge. you could even attempt making a complex meal yourselves!
bucket list worthy - hot air ballon ride, whale watching, bungee jumping. opera or ballet performance. It’s something you will always share and remember! I’m sure it get’s pricy, but it’s definitely not something you’ll forget anytime soon.
drive in theater - old-fashioned, very cliche but i’ve always wanted to
museum date aka admire art but more importantly each other! Gotta love the art museum cliche “observing the masterpiece” but completely ignoring the painting to stare at your girlfriend. most museums I know of have a free admissions day each month!
go to a carnival or fair - have her win you some sort of prize (and vice versa), cling to each other on all the rides, share dessert, take lots of pictures
shamelessly do a really cool, lame local tourist attraction you’ve been meaning to try! If you’re a “go big or go home” type, you can even both wear some broad-brimmed hat and a fanny pack.
for natural science nerds - aquarium, science center, botanical gardens, observatory, or zoo date! impress her with your knowledge - or lack thereof - of flora and fauna. nothing is cuter than watching baby sea otters (except possibly your date)
go on a picnic! It’s honestly so romantic to go on a long hike then settle down on a checkered blanket to eat homemade sandwiches and cookies.
seasonal fruit or berry picking - obviously depending on time of year
If you’re living near a large body of water, kayaking and paddle-boarding are incredibly fun!
let me know how you spend your “monthiversary” (my sweetheart claims it’s a real word)

The guy looked up from his book, startled by Derek’s voice, his mouth falling open and his eyes wide. “Hi…what are you doing here?”Derek chuckled. “I was hoping you could tell me that…are we dead?”Stiles snorted and shook his head. “No, I’m in a coma.”Derek furrowed his eyebrows in concern. “What? Am I in one, too?”Stiles shrugged his shoulders. “I don’t know, are you? What’s the last thing you remember?”“I had to get an emergency appendectomy.” Derek replied, rubbing his side.
Waking up in a hospital, as some can tell you, can be a very scary thing. Usually though you don’t wake up and see your own body in the bed. Stiles can tell you, that’s not a Bucket List worthy experience.

After a deadly car crash, Stiles is in a coma, fighting for his life. When he comes back a ghost, Derek is the only one that can communicate with him and see him. Whether its the mating bond, or not, Derek and Stiles realise its a bit more then just mating with them, and Derek has to do something big to stop Stiles from being gone forever.
Stiles only wanted his father to believe him. To give him a chance. But on his one chance, he didn’t expect to be driving at a fast rate at, at least 80 mph. Especially when you’re heading towards an intersection…
