Dating On The Cheap: Head To Ikea

You probably won’t find Michelle and Barry O. making eyes over a plate of Swedish meatballs in the cafe any time soon (though you never do know!), but The New York Times is claiming more and more of us are heading to the Scandinavian superstore for a few romantic moments alone. Ahh, love amongst the Lack storage solutions! And parents are taking full advantage of the child care centers called “Smaland,” dumping the little rugrats off for up to an hour and a half of supervised playtime in the ball pit, and heading to the couch section to read the paper together in silence. (Actually, Ikea estimates that “Smaland” attendance has jumped roughly 20 percent so far this year in its stores in major American cities.)

I bet it makes for a tab that you’ll both be fighting to pay. Don’t worry, sweetums, it’s my treat this time! [NY Times]
