The mainstream's materialistic expression of what they call "love". People waste literally hundreds of dollars, if not thousands, on the food, the alcohol, and the special clothes (apparently, it's not cool enough to wear a t-shirt and some pants or a top and pants/skirt..People who take part in candlelight dinners must wear a suit or a dress). These are usually followed by sexual favors afterwards. To me, the whole thing is too much like prostitution. What else would you call sex for material objects, such as food?
Finally, you won't see me at one of those..ever.
Brandon and his whore were having a candlelight dinner, to be followed by a night of "romantic" pseudo-sex and calling each "snookums" in idiotic voices.
