Can be pronounced with two "d"s (e.g., errand date) or one “d” (e.g. errandate).
Noun. A romantic outing involving
two people where one or both of the participants’ central
motivation is the search
for and/or purchase of goods. Due to time constraints, the drudgery or enjoyment of shopping for household items and groceries, and/or the desire to make cooperative purchases, this type of outing
is often undertaken by couples after
a committed relationship is established. However, just as errands can be mistaken for a leisure activity (see definition
of “errand”), the errand date can be mistaken by the person
of goods as an enjoyable
activity for their companion. Suggesting or partaking in this type of date prior to the establishment of a relationship (i.e., during
stage) is tacky, selfish, and a strong clue that the person
of goods is not able
or willing to set aside
time centered around getting to know a romantic partner.
