Pint Night Relief with Arctic Zero (+Giveaway!) **GIVEAWAY ENDED**

 Arctic Zero post disaster date pint nights make the night better with no guilt after! Only 150-300 calories per pint! Grab a spoon, a pint and read about our dating blunders!

Back in college, we instituted pint night. It usually followed the break up of one of my roommates and their boyfriends. We’d make a trip to the store, grab our chosen pint of ice cream, then head home to drown our spoons and bad dates in the latest pint of ice cream while we talked, cried and eventually laughed about our dating woes.


Many a night was spent fixated on “the one” and whether or not we’d ever meet that one. As the years went on, less people joined our pint nights and got married. Started having kids. Got new careers. Bought their first houses.

But in our family, pint nights are still reserved for those nights that nothing…NOTHING goes right.

And when the kids aren’t around, I drown my sorrows in a pint of ice cream. This time, alone.

You see, after a long hiatus from hearing about first date blunders and being left in the restaurant by some blind date that never showed, I’m back to those nights. And I hate every minute of it. I made sure in college I dated every person I felt somewhat compatable with in an effort to determine what (and who) I wanted to marry. I eventually left that couch and built a great life. I got married, I had a family…I had a good run. But circumstances have left me back on the couch, spoon in hand. Alone.

This time I’m almost twenty years older and the metabolism isn’t as forgiving of high calorie high fat indulgences like my college days. I can sit on the couch and indulge but my butt’s going to jiggle a whole lot longer than it did when I was younger. So I opt for lower calorie pints like Arctic Zero. 

And as I sit there (alone–insert spoon in hand) I think about some of my more interesting first date blunders I’ve had now that I’m in my thirties:

  1. The guy who sent me a screenshot of his passed background check, and the lack of his name being on any criminal or sex offender registry site. We didn’t get to the first date. 
  2. The guy who I hadn’t even met for a first date yet who said he would treat my kids as his own and would love my kids like his own. That’s easy to say when you don’t have a YouTube addicted six year old who while at work one day decided to make her own DIY backyard splash pad and turned the backyard into piles of mud. Or the ground up colored chalk bags that she decided to make faux frosting with but just ended up making the house look like a 5k Color Run went through our house. Guess who got to clean that up for several hours as she hugged me and headed off to her dad’s for the night?
  3. The guy who through the entire date kept commenting on how “trustworthy” he was and how I could “trust” him. He was right in some respects. I googled the crap out of him prior to our date and found nothing major but unfortunately he never made it to date two because I ran into someone he dated at the gym and found out how “trustworthy” he was. 
  4. The guy who I graciously told on the first date I wasn’t interested in who then for the next month proceeded to ask if we could arrange a friends with  benefits status between us. No kidding the last time I declined a few hours later before bed I went on Facebook and he had a picture of his new girlfriend posted on Facebook, the two of them smiling for the cameras. 
  5. This guy made it a few dates in. He made it to the date where you start to wonder maybe where things are going. Do you continue to invest or move on? So ladies you break out “the outfit” to gauge how he feels. This guy was hard to read. So I pulled the “the outfit” out of it’s place in the section of my closet marked “retired” for this date. All I got was… “you look nice.” And later when I hinted on how a girl would tell if he likes her he replied, “I’ll want to hang out with you.” He didn’t call for a week after that. No “what’s your schedule like this week?” Or, “what nights do you not have the kids or school so we can hang out?” Just a couple of texts here and there. UGH!!! “The outfit” went back into retirement for awhile and he quickly became reduced to “just a friend.” 🙁
  6. Those guys who are older and not married and say “it’s just bad luck I’m not married yet.” Or, “I just haven’t found the right one.” Those are my counseling mind bread and butter. It isn’t “luck” men and I’ll usually find out within a date or two what the deficiency is you experience whether it be Social, relationship or mental. See #5 hot skirt deficiency for an example of why it isn’t “luck” that he’s not married. 

I’m grateful that Arctic Zero has come to the rescue for those of us in desperate need of a pint night but who are also being overcome by gravity, loss of muscle mass and crow’s feet.

    would love to try the cappuccino flavor ice cream. One time I went on a date with a guy who lied about his looks so I cut the date short.

  2. I’d love to try Cake Batter! My dating disaster was my first date ever! A friend asked me on a date and then ended up standing me up! I never heard from him again. I was of course, devastated! I was 18 and thought I was a dating loser. Luckily, two months later I met this guy and we’ve been married for 19 years now!

  6. Kathy bergman says:

    I would love to try cherry chocolate chunk. Dating disaster, blind date and we both lied to each other about our ages, he was 24 and I was 16, we were parked in a park kissing and the cops banged on the window and next thing you know my,parents are being called. No more blind dates after that.

  7. Kelly mcgrew says:

    I would like to try the Rocky Road Trip! the dating disaster was unfortunately my fault haha, for on of our earlier dates I decided I wanted to take the reigns, so I surprised him with baseball tickets for a ‘college night’ (we were in college at the time) and I checked the weather religiously and all looked great. Well, we got down there and the game was delayed for 3 hours so we basically sat on the concrete floor for 3 hours because our seats were out in the rain! We ate our dinner while sitting on the floor 😂, and the last bus was quickly approaching, so we had to leave about 15 minutes into the game to walk to the bus stop! Needless to say it was an ultimate fail!

    Cookies & Cream. A guy ended up being a totally different person than he let on, in a pyschotic way…

  9. The Vanilla Maple sounds good. As a huge introvert every date was awkward. Thank god for wine.

  10. allyson T says:

    I want o try Arctic Zero toasted coconut! My worst date was a blind date set up by my friend! me and the guy ended up walking around our mall awkwardly. Then he just said i have to go and left me in the mall corridor. i was so confused and never had a blind date again!

  11. Rachel Jenkins says:

    Rocky road trip looks amazing, hmm a dating disaster I had was when this man and I went to an Italian restaurant. I ordered this delicious spaghetti dish and the guy orders like this little weird tomato cheese and spinach thing because he had some body building thing going so he couldn’t eat….. This guys was so big when he was getting uo to use the bathroom he somehow pushed his plate into mine and made my plate land in my lap. I was so furious and hungry……. Horrible night lol

  12. Rocky Road Trip…I can’t remember a dating disaster…I was very selective..

  13. Laura B. says:

    Vanilla Maple sounds really delicious. I went on a date with a man who was super controlling. We went to a Chinese restaurant and after I ordered that he told me “you know you shouldn’t have ordered that right?” Apparently, it wasn’t healthy enough for his standards.

  14. Kristin McCall says:

    the cookie dough looks really amazing! my dating disaster was when the guy did not even show up on the first date.

  15. Peggy Damon says:

    cookie dough chip would be the pint I choose….and I don’t remember any dating disasters, met my husband at 18 and obviously that went very well!

  16. The Peanut Butter Swirl sounds delicious!
    I didn’t date around too much before I was married, so I didn’t have any huge mishaps.

  17. Peanut Butter Swirl. My first date post divorce was with a guy who was so obsessed with Morrissey from The Smiths. At first I thought it was interesting then I realized that was all he thought about, even looked just like him.

  18. I would love to try the new Rocky Road Trip!

  19. I’ve been happily married for quite some time so I really had to think about it, but back in high school my friend set me up on a blind date. It was a double date. She with the guy she was interested in and he brought a friend for me. Well, I’m 5’10” tall….he was maybe 5’6″, but that’s being generous. It was so awkward!

  20. Would love to try the cookies and cream!!
