Is coffee a date?

** This blog has moved to ** 

My sister Sarah has an ongoing thing at her church, where they ask visiting speakers “Is coffee a date?” (You too can have that much fun if you move to Wodonga.) In other words, if you take a girl out for coffee at a café somewhere, does this constitute a date, or does a date have to be more involved, such as dinner and movie?

Hmmm. Let me ponder this question for a sec.

Sarah, when telling me about this, laughed and said “Of course coffee isn’t a date!” But then when a local bloke asked her for coffee, she refused. Not her type, apparently. Huh?

I have, in the recent past, had a dinner and movie evening with a girl. Was it a date? Certainly didn’t feel like one. On another occasion, I took a girl out for coffee and it definitely felt like a date.

But is it a date when one of the two thinks it is, and the other does not? Or is anything a date, so long as there is a guy and a girl involved?

Enquiring minds want to know.

    Does Wikipedia have an entry on this? That would settle the issue once and for all.

  2. Pete Aldin says:

    Woo hoo we’ve solved it!

  3. Peter says:

    Coffee is evil.

  4. Markk says:

    Peter, coffee is Good, and you need to repent of insulting the sacred beans.

  5. Pete Aldin says:

    Amen, good Peter. If Jesus was hanging out with his Disciples in 2007 in South-eastern Melbourne, He’d be frequenting many of the fine coffee emporiums that Markk has reviewed for us and imbibing of the bean.

  6. Pete Aldin says:

    I mean, “amen good Markk!” – see? I haven’t had my coffee yet and I am confused. It does us good.

  7. Markk says:

    We could also add that Jesus would order his coffee piping hot, because it is as the Good Book says, “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Rev 3:16

    Hi. My name is Sarah.

    And I hate coffee.

  9. SaRz says:

    ^ To avoid confusement for readers – not sister Sarah.

  10. Pete Aldin says:

    Sarah, you hate coffee, you love cats. Do you have any redeeming features at all??? :)

  11. Markk says:

    Sarah needs reprogramming …

  12. SaRz says:

    Reprogramming? What am I, some kind of robot?

    Why all my features are redeeming – wit, charm, good looks, intelligence, honesty, integrity, sweet tempered, charisma…

    And let’s not forget:

  13. Markk says:

    Sarah has wit, charm, good looks, intelligence, charisma.

    She also loves cats and hates coffee.

    She also claims to NOT be the other Sarah, without providing evidence.

    Hmmm …

  17. Markk says:

    “prty much ANYthing can be considered a ‘date’ nowadays ”

    Good point. I think for my next date, I’ll suggest mowing the lawn. I’ll let you know how that goes.

  18. No, Markk, this is a date!

  19. Markk says:

    Er, yep. Moving right along …

  20. Markk says:

    This is probably a bad time to bring up the Australian slang definition for “date” so I’ll let Wikipedia do it for me:
