Hello. How about dinner and a movie this Friday night? 

Been there, you say? Done that? Does painting your toenails or watching sports bloopers sound more appealing than the usual night out? To get you out of your dating doldrums, the staff at D Magazine—composed of twenty-, thirty-, forty-, and fiftysomethings—set out to disprove the theory that Dallas nightlife is an oxymoron. In the process we captured it all: great clubs with live music, offbeat romantic spots, the best places to share a laugh, ideal settings to pop the (or any) question, and a host of adventurous destinations designed to stretch your legs and your love life.

Cheap Dates

We aren’t insinuating that your date is cheap. We’ve just discovered plenty of ways to get to know each other without dipping into what’s left of your savings.

1 Which Craft. Get to know each other as you get to know the artists within yourselves. After all, the art of love is a craft. Pick up the pieces before your relationship falls apart at Smashing Times or let your pottery paintings say the thousands of words you can’t come up with at Paint Yer Pottery. Either way, you won’t ever have to say you salvaged nothing from this relationship. Paint Yer Pottery, 17194 Preston Rd. @ Cam
