Love Train

The makings of a good date are simple: two people who really like each other. The rest is just details. We can’t really help you with step one (maybe Date Lab can?), but we have a cheat sheet for step two. The Metro served as our inspiration for this guide to D.C. dating, because that’s how many dates begin and end — at the stops between daters’ offices or homes. We eliminated the stops that were mostly waystations for commuters or that had nothing romantic within walking distance to recommend. Have a date suggestion?
