Once upon a time, nobody read RocketNews24 because it was really really bad. RocketRevival is a weekly corner that takes a look at some of our more passable articles from a bygone era that still hold valuable lessons today.

It’s a well-known fact that romantic relationships with real women are incredibly inconvenient. You take them out on dates, pay for their meals, and do everything you can to keep them pleased—only to be kicked to the curb and have your pride crushed at the end of the day. Even if you did find that perfect girl, you’d be too nervous to talk to her in the first place!

Face it: it’s just easier to stay single. However, even those of us who are free from delusions of ‘romance’ may still fantasize of a little pleasant interaction with the opposite sex from time to time.

Now, thanks to Japanese DVD series Amateur Meal Time ~Let’s Eat Together!~, you can now fulfill that desire by enjoying the atmosphere of a dinner date without the hassle of actually having to meet a real woman!

Each DVD features a number of lovely young ladies as they sit across the table from the camera and engage in pleasant small talk as they enjoy their meal. Hungry for Japanese? The girls of Amateur Meal Time 1 have brought their home-made bento and an arsenal of riveting dinnertime conversation topics—just for you! Western more your thing? Don’t worry, Amateur Meal Time 2 has you covered (in sauce!) with four new ladies to enjoy a chat about their day over a plate of spaghetti and more.

The description on the back cover explains: “No one likes to eat alone, but as long as you have this video it’ll be alright! Choose one of five lovely girls to eat with you. Now you won’t be lonely, even when alone.”

All three of the Amateur Meal Time series DVDs are available for purchase online at Amazon.co.jp for the low price of 699 yen (US $8.77) each, which is about as much as you’d have to pay to take a real woman out to dinner anyway! It’s win-win!
