Uh-oh--I hope I didn't make you nervous if you do have big plans for Monday night. I personally enjoy a Monday-night date--it's less pressure than a weekend date, and it gives you something to look forward to and a reason to get dressed up on what's usually the most miserable day of the week.
But alas, I'm in the minority on this one. According to a Match.com survey, Mondays are the least popular day for a date. Weekend dates are not only much more popular than dates that are early in the week, but 81 percent of people said they are more likely to cancel a date on a weeknight. Also, the number one reason people cancel a Monday date is because they need a post-weekend gym visit. The gym! If someone canceled a date with me to go to the gym instead, I would be so mad. Other reasons some jerk might stand you up on a Monday: work commitments (fair), being too tired (suck it up), being unable to afford it (um, learn to budget on the weekends, people), and getting a date with a better option (OUCH).
In my opinion, there's a lesson to take from this. If you don't like to go on dates on Mondays, don't schedule dates on Mondays. But if you do schedule one, you better work out in the morning because choosing the gym over a potential lover is ruuuuude.
Do you like dates on Monday or early in the week, or do you prefer to stick to weekend dates? Does it depend on whether it's a first date or a more serious date? I think so!
