Thou Shalt: Not go on an exercise date, ever
In the end the boys chose Ayla and Tiffany for their dates. And, since they were brothers, they decided a double date -- at the gym was the way to go. . .

Here's an important message about first dates, from me. Granted I don't know much but I do know this: If your date has to change clothes to do the activity you've planned it's a bad idea. Tell her if she's going to be working out or riding horses or having her portrait painted by Chuck Close. It's not that she doesn't want to do any of those things -- she'll just plan accordingly. Maybe if she knew about the date Tiffany wouldn't have taught multiple gym classes that day. And maybe both ladies could have drummed up exercise outfits that didn't look like something Jennifer Grey left on the floor post Flashdance. Just sayin'.

However, the ladies went with it because they are better ladies than I. In fact, Ayla like really went with it, taking she and Dave's flirty "spotting" to a new level at dinner. She even pulled Patti's "feed your date" trick on him. Those cats are in a precious kind of love, grillin' and making guacamole and talking about the future together. A real win for this week!

Abe and Tiffany on the other hand -- less talking about future menu plans. Maybe it was the single flower surrounded by shrubbery and paper Abe brought her, maybe it was the immediate suggestion of hot tub time, but Abe was not as finessed as one would hope. Granted he's a little rusty, but perhaps someone should have refreshed the man that it's best to save the suggestion of jacuzzi to date three, at least. And that's only if it's for physical therapy purposes. Back to the drawing board for this one.

Next week Jenny McCarthy is there to help folks get Singled Out -- or actually the opposite of that. . .
Tell me though, what are your feelings on first date exercise? Leave your workout plan in the comments.
