It’s safe to assume that the majority of people have smoked a joint, hit a bong, or even turned a soda/beer can into a makeshift pipe at one point in their life. At the very least, you’ve got friends that have. It’s not even Kevin Bacon Six Degrees of Separation with pot, it’s more like one degree of separation, you know?
Speaking of baking bacon, we’ve compiled a list of reasons why dating or just simply going out with a pothead is a great idea.
Yes, we know what you’re thinking, “4/20 was two days ago now and this probably should have been posted then.” Well, that’s just like, your opinion, man.
Stoners are always down to watch a movie.
If you ever feel disinterested in dressing up to go out on the town just to spend a ton of money socializing with a bunch of random strangers in a loud and crowded environment, chances are, your significant other will be more than happy to just relax and watch a movie.
It won’t even matter what you want to watch, so expect no arguments there/here. Sure, your date may completely miss the plot, or overreact to certain jokes or dramatized scenes. By deciding to stay in, you’ve created a theatergoing experience from the comfort of your own couch.
They’re always prepared to snack.
A first date is likely to take place with a pothead if there is food involved, sans the need to worry about getting stood up. This is largely due to the fact that standing would require a lot of effort.
You’ll never have to worry about eating alone. But that’s not even the best part. For in-home dining, your partner will grab the most ridiculous assortment of ingredients to craft a one-of-a-kind meal that could only be conjured by the brilliantly creative mind of a stoner. If you think it tastes gross, you clearly lack a refined palate.
They will never get angry.
While you may get angry at times, there’s a very strong chance that with everything will always be — to reference Matthew McConaughey — alright, alright, alright. Most pot smokers are laid back individuals who go with the flow because caring about things takes energy.
Last minute change of plans or decide you want to do something spur of the moment? That won’t be a problem because they probably either forgot you did or didn’t have plans anyways.
You will be the funniest person alive.
I’m sure you’re just like every other person on the planet and think you are in fact the funniest person alive. You aren’t. But your ganja loving partner will think you are. The laughter won’t be out of pity, or sympathy, just to appease you. It will be an abdominal burning laughter from the deepest parts of their Cheeto and Taco Bell filled stomach.
Sure, you can’t tell the same joke or funny story to anyone else and expect the same reaction because you’ll just end up saying, “You had to be there.” But at least the two of you got to share that moment….
Despite being a little lazy, a lot hungry, and sometimes downright random, a weed smoking opposite can be the break from sobriety you need to return to your regular life feeling really smart.
There’s like 16 more reasons… but you get the idea.
