For this edition of Interesting People, intrepid CT reporters asked VCU students about, in a perfect world, their ideal Valentine’s Day date.

If you happen to still be dateless for this Valentine’s Day, remember – there’s still time to sign up for the CT Love Connection by sending your name, photo and a brief bio to spectrum@commonwealthtimes.org  by Feb. 10! One happy couple will be chosen to meet the soon-to-be love of their life and also enjoy a free fancy dinner and thrilling after-dinner activity.

“We go to a really good Italian dinner with a bottle of wine. There would have to be wine. It would have to be nice outside, so something outside and with alcohol. Or, if we’re going out for the first time, we go and try a bunch of different beers, and I think that if we didn’t have similar beer tastes, it wouldn’t work.” “We hang out and watch movies, then go out and have lunch at a deli. We talk about things we enjoy and primarily things we hate because that’s what really gets people together. I don’t care about the specifics, unless we’re doing something I hate, like playing with dolls.”

“We’re completely sloshed after the club, there are 30 girls all around, and there’s a giant orgy brawl. I wake up, covered in a blanket of women, not knowing any of their names, but they all know mine, and they never forget it.” “I took my ex-girlfriend out for our one-year anniversary. We went still water kayaking and we had a picnic on the beach. We ended up kayaking around. It was a wonderful spring day. We went to dinner at P.F. Changs, which was expensive as f—. Then we went back to my place and watched movies.”

“It’s a scavenger hunt. He’ll leave little notes outside my door, and I’ll have to travel around Richmond, and then we’ll have a romantic meal.” “Someone who is morally conscious and anti-social. I’m not into sluts. I don’t like people who follow heterosexual norms or are materialistic. I like polyamorous people.”

“My favorite date so far was going out on Sleeter Lake in Round Hill, Va. in my canoe. We were just fishing and chilling.” “My girlfriend lives in Maryland, and I’d like to go to Ellicot City. There’s this old Shakespeare troupe and you walk around to follow the play.”

“My dream date would be to go to a little café and talk for a while, then go for a walk around Richmond. I just like to talk and get to know people.”
