Just listen to the story by thisistrouble
‘Last night, I took a girl laser tagging for a laser tagdate. Now, I’ve been seeing this girl for several months and it was something we had been wanting to do for a while due to our mutual like of Barney Stinson utilizing a laser tag date on How I Met Your Mother. Needless to say it was a *smashing* success. It’s 11am and I just got home. Balls drained, and I’m now going into this weekend with a killer attitude. However, this isn’t the first time I’ve used laser tag as a date. I’ve used it on first dates to great success.’
Everyone loves laser gun, even the the biggest pacifists out there. It involves fast-thinking, physical activity and thus creates the perfect platform for a situation that will be enjoyed despite what the partners think about eachother!
