Play date or playdate is an expression, primarily used in the United States, for an arranged appointment for children to meet and play. It should not be confused with dating as there is no implied romantic component.
Play dates have become common[when] because the work schedules for busy parents, along with media warnings about leaving children unattended,[example needed] prevent the kind of play that children of other generations[which] participated in.
The intention of a play date is to give children time to interact freely in a less structured environment than other planned activities might provide. Play dates are different from organized activities or scheduled sports, because they usually lack structure, rules, and plans.
Despite being released in 2015, the song became a sleeper hit and gained popularity in April 2020 due to widespread use on the app TikTok. By May 8, the song had gained over 80 million streams on Spotify and 40 million views on YouTube. The song has been featured on multiple prominent Spotify playlists, such as Today's Top Hits, Pop Rising and Teen Beats. Martinez was featured on the cover of both Pop Rising and Teen Beats.
The song's lyrics narrate a woman who is involved in a casual relationship through the metaphor of two children on a play date. Throughout the song, the woman denies that she has romantic feelings for her sexual partner until the end when she confesses that she does.
Play and Date are social interactions between characters that have two or more full relationship hearts; in other words, the character has become the player's Buddy and is willing to spend one-on-one time with them. Playdates or dates can be initiated once per in-game calendar week per character; attempting to schedule a second playdate or date in the same week with the same character will fail, as the option is greyed out (unselectable) until the next week. Only one character can be played with/dated per day.
While on a playdate or date, the partner character will follow the player wherever they go, can be invited to ride with them on their mount, and will fight alongside them if any monsters are encountered (unless they are adverse to combat, like Ginger and Aadit are).
To start a date or play date, the player needs to approach the character they are scheduled to spend time with and choose the corresponding option. If that character has not arrived at the designated meeting place in time for the play date/date to start (due to their schedule, the date being scheduled on a festival day, or, in case of Ginger, slow movement speed), the player can still find them elsewhere on the map and interact with them. The option to start the date will appear regardless of the character's location.
If the player fails to start the date or play date within the scheduled time window, they will lose the option to start it and will get -20 relationship points penalty with the character they are meeting up with. However, if a playdate or date was scheduled to be during a festival, then there will be no penalty and an alert will pop up at the scheduled time to say that the playdate/date has been cancelled.
Action points are used during play time to perform most activities. The play date has a mood meter that indicates how the playing is progressing; a low mood meter may result in the play time ending early. Impressing the partner increases the mood meter. Higher mood meters yield more relationship points at the end of the play session. The relationship gain at the end of the date or play date is calculated by dividing the final mood point value by 3 and rounding down.
The date or play date ends after the player spends all their action points. In addition, the player's partner will leave and end the date by themselves if it is too late; most characters will end the date at 23:59, though Oaks can stay until 01:00, and Emily or Ginger can stay until 01:59.
After a successful confession, the Play social interaction changes to the Date social interaction. Dates are the same as play dates except there are more activities, such as stargazing and more interactions while sitting on the bench.
If the player is in romantic relationship with several characters at once and is seen by one of these characters while on a date with another character, the date immediately ends and the date partner gets -50 relationship points. The character who caught them gets -30 relationship points. Both characters will be upset, display broken hearts in their social status, and will refuse to talk, interact, or date with the player. The broken heart status can be removed only by gifting an Apology Bear.
During the ride the play date will ask the player to take photos of several landmarks they see. The player will get 3 bonus mood points for each photo they take if it meets the requirements (the photo is taken when the landmark the play date likes has blue outline). The player has the option to save or delete the photo.
The main event is ordering food, which usually requires memorization of the play-buddy's order. The play-buddy provides a list of foods to order, and the player must remember the specific dishes to place the order. Successfully ordering the correct foods increases the mood meter. Ordering too much food may yield fewer mood points, as will choosing the wrong foods or forgetting items altogether. A play-buddy may also mention a particular like or dislike (such as seafood), so ordering with that preference in mind can be helpful. It is advised only to order what the play date listed, otherwise they will say the player ordered to much, or to little.
The player pays for the whole meal. Occasionally, the restaurant has meal combo specials that are discounted. Ordering awards 6 happiness before any entrees are chosen. Choosing exactly what they were looking for awards an additional 20 happiness. Ordering can also only be done once per play date. 59ce067264
