Play me as you read! Get the full experience 

The hours are long when prepping for a date. The date can start as early as 9 pm and end as late as 12 am. Even the next day, if you count the adult sleepover. In 2018, it’s clear that women are ready to break the stigma and rule attached to the date night carryalls, etiquette and style. From the age of 16, for those that stepped into the dating scene early, we are tethered to the rules and guidelines of what a respectable woman should be, anchored with slender casual threads that try to keep us secure in the patriarch ideology which is toxic to a woman’s livelihood.

Firstly, it doesn’t make you a hoe. Secondly, safety first.

Everything planned for an enjoyable night out with the guy you like. Somehow, women rarely speak about the essentials that need to be in your purse for the date. After all, dating, style and comfortability go hand in hand. Why don’t you inject your sexual desire into the mix? Luckily, there are plenty of ways to pack your bag for a smooth and stress-free.

Condoms
Aside from debit cards, phone and keys, the next item that needs to be in your bag are condoms. There’s a stigma attached to women that carry condoms which makes a lot of women hesitate to discuss the topic when it arises. Firstly, it doesn’t make you a hoe. Secondly, safety first. We, myself included have been in a situation that either leaves us sexually unsatisfied because the guy couldn’t find a condom when getting hot and bothered, and probably proceeded with the activity hoping to get a morning-after pill. The irresponsible days are over. Our sexual health comes first. You shouldn’t be afraid of owning your sexuality and practising safe sex. Also, the fact that a woman carries condoms in her bag doesn’t mean she’s sleeping with any and every one.

I’m going through the process of trying something new, now that I’m dating again. Being celibate has made dating hard when the horny devil sits on your shoulder to tempt you to relish in a night of passion, to avoid sleeping a guy too soon, the bullet vibrator is a saviour. Perhaps, you’re not going through the celibacy stage, just holding out to get to know the guy before giving out the cookie, understandably. Then masturbating before heading out for the date is the best way. That way you’ve gotten out the adrenaline, with your head clear and mind to the situation.

As much as some outfits require the stiletto effect, it’s essential to pack foldable flats in your clutch. The worst thing you want to do while strolling the riverside of Waterloo with a guy is straining your feet. The best way to prevent sore feet the next day is swiping your heels from some comfortability.

Period Pad
Sometimes when feeling ourselves, aunty flow likes to make her cameo visit before the intended day. To avoid rushing off to your house despite enjoying the company of your date, the fix to your problem is with you.

Perfume Atomiser
These mini perfume bottles are my favourite thing to pack in my clutch. A substitute for the bottle size that can’t fit in the clutch. It comes in handy when you want to refresh yourself and allure your date. Did you know that you can keep a lasting impression on a guy when you smell so good? So keep topping up, but avoid overpowering your date.

Living in London, the heavy wind and rain subject our pre-departure hairstyle to go array, and the best solution is to use the bobby pins and hair band for immediate hair rescue. You still want to look cute while nature is trying to mess with you.

Fresh Breath
With a breath mint, you don’t have to worry about a stinky breath. The meals ate at restaurants, or smell of the alcohol can be a turn off when it’s time to pucker up with your date. Popping these bad boys in your mouth shows your respect their sense of smell and a strong indication you’re ready for a kiss.

What are the essentials of your date night purse? Do you think it’s unladylike to carry condoms?
