All this week, Mike’s Bloggity Blog will be celebrating Valentine’s Day with a special series called Bloggity Dates. Every day, some of the biggest names in Canadian entertainment will be dropping by to share stories of their best, worst and most embarrassing dates. If I were you, I’d take notes to ensure you have a perfect Valentine’s Day. Just be sure to invite me to the wedding.
Degrassi’s Melinda Shankar
With my busy schedule, I never really had time to date. However, my boyfriend is in the industry, so he understands the hectic lifestyle. My best date was definitely with him. We spent the day downtown Toronto, at Centre Island. We took a speed boat over to the island, then a little swan ride through the water, walked around the zoo, went on the kiddie water rides, had lunch at an adorable cafe, and spent time by the water surrounded by ducks and swans. We then hung out and talked for hours on the beach and rocks – it was such a great day. It didn’t take long before we became best friends and progressed from there. But of course they can’t all be as perfect as that. I once went on a date where the guy knew I was an actor, but I hadn’t gone into detail about it. We were at a mall in New York, when a bunch of kids came up to me and started talking and asking for pictures. The guy thought I was being attacked and yelled “I’LL CALL SECURITY”…I had to chase him down and fill him in on the situation. Haha poor guy was so embarrassed, he apologized for the rest of the day.
