“What would an ideal date be like to you?”

“Like nothing.”

“Like what?”

“Like nothing. I love the nothingness. What exactly do we do when we are together? Nothing. We sit inside watching a TV series. We sit outside in the garden in utter silence. The sheer beauty of the fact that we are together reduces the need to fill our moments with a name-able activity to a blank nothing.

My ideal date? Binge-watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S with you on the couch as we wait for the pizza delivery. And when someone asks me later what I did over the weekend? I would say Nothing.”
