By Mara Miller

What if you could go back in time and be “17 Again?”  Although you may not be Zac Efron in the movie, it’s very easy to relive your childhood memories by going back in time and dressing the part, watching a film or reading a book from that era. You can even relive your teenage years while you’re on a date, which can be extremely nostalgic.

Relive your teenage years with this date idea!

Stir up memories of mullets and 90210 fashion by renting a movie from the past like Rambo or Legally Blond with this dating advice.  It could make a fun conversation starter, especially if you come dressed for the part.

After the movie, don’t forget to jam out to music that was totally ‘in’ during your teenage years.  Even if you and your partner weren’t teens at the same time, you can still share what kind of music you liked when you were growing up.  Knowing that your partner was a heavy metal rocker while you were all about hip hop can make for a very interesting experience.

For adventurous types, dress the way you did during high school and stroll the streets with your partner while eating Twizzlers and sipping soda out of a crazy straw.  You might get a lot of stares, but who cares?  You’ll never see these people again, and you and your partner will have memories for a lifetime.

If you’re looking for a laugh, flip through each other’s high school yearbooks. There are sure to be a few fashions do’s and don’ts that’ll make each of you cringe and say, “What in the world was I thinking?”
