If you do the climbing date (boulder/trad/sport... whateva) thing,you gotta take along a good luxurious lunch for yourself and "just happen" to have enough for him if he wants.
E.g. Take stove and brew fresh coffee, of course a spare cup just happens to be amongst the brew kit. Some shredded chicken, avocado, dijon mustard, and steamed asparagus for that bit of crunch (all in seperate containers) along with some fresh bagels and cream cheese. Yummy!

The way to a fellas heart is through his stomach.

yummy! But does this idea smell of a little over eagerness? He better be worth it!

I just knew there was alcohol involved in that!
Alcohol doesn't count....I once just walked up to a guy and simply said 'you're SO HOT!!'. He said 'great then, lets go now!, come on!!' . He was about 15 years my junior. I said 'I don't think so. I've got a seven year old child'. He said 'I don't care if you've got a 20 year old child'. I walked off in my drunken stupor ending up at McDonalds at Circular Quay at 4pm eating the worst cheeseburger I've ever had in my life wondering what was going on...I hadn't been drunk for about 7 years. Needless to say he quickly moved on to someone else and they had a lovely night snogging at the bar!
In sobriety I'm a different woman I'm afraid!

Also, many guys don't reject or run a mile from women who are into as some call it 'new age'. Every man I have had a substantial relationship with has had a deeper spiritual side and I could not be with any other type of person because our relationship would not satisfy me. In some cases more than me. The person I married was into astrology and actually did astrological readings. I was not really into that but our conversations were not merely about the weather put it that way.
Some people have no connection with any other life force than what they can physically see and hear. That's fine but there are plenty of people who reject this and seek in a partner something different.
Horses for courses and I have both close friends and family who are at opposites of the spectrum.

Maybe I missed something PK, but is this guy a climber?
If he's a climber and you're female and breathing then you can take him to the You-Yangs.
If he's not a climber, then go trad and easy. Maybe Scarab at Bundaleer with dinner at the Kookaburra or Power Dive and the Royal Mail at Dunkeld.

Good discussion (it's a lot more interesting than talking about climbing). I am not dissing the white light thing, but I agree with AnthonyK's comments...

> well i've heard of friends (girls) who have been interested in someone but been so timid or stubborn about it they completely avoid giving any sort of sign that they were interested, even giving what i would call little 'not interested' signs (hard to explain).

The rules of engagement follow their own mysterious path. The biggest mistakes I've made with women was when I thought something was a certainty and wasn't prepared for a negative response.

And that is why I was making the point earlier about being ready for rejection. It's not neccessarily the end of the story, but you don't want to end the chapter awkwardly.

Why are the You-Yangs such a hot-spot for initiating jiggy jiggy?

Some guys are a bit more discerning than that Kim. A good rack helps though.

PK if you like the guy just ask him out. I asked my climbing partner out (well invited him over to my place for DVDs and pizza) and we’ve been together for over 2 years now, and we’re getting married next year. He’s got a great rack… doubles of everything including cams lol :) He makes a great belay bunny and he always gets me things I like for Christmas and birthdays e.g. a new harness, climbing shoes etc etc

My guess would be that a fit, flirting couple at the youeys would climb until fingers & toes are sore (around an hour) and still have plenty of energy & *ahem* drive for other activities that don't involve aforementioned sore areas.

Jiggy jiggy LOL

If I was not a climber I don't know that I would be feeling either happy or amorous after being dragged up Power Dive.

If he is a climber, then go somewhere really remote, say Crystal Palace in the Vic range, and after demolishing a bottle or two of red around the campfire, tell him that you forgot to bring a tent. Works like a charm.

Yeah, I'm wondering about Kieran's dating tips... You Yangs, Powerdive.

Maybe if you were trying to end a relationship these would be good options.

Quite cunning actually...

Both places are secluded. Once they see the crag they won't be interested in actually climbing...

Very sneaky. I would never think of that.

I remember dragging a girl up Where Angels Fear to Tread. We never hooked up.
