Gentlemen, have you ever asked a woman “what do you want to do tonight?” Like clockwork, the answer that always comes is, “I don’t know? You pick.” Frustrating, right? Unless you are a love guru, what to do on date night is a tough decision for any guy to make. Well, fear no more! The women of Mount Union are speaking out about their favorite places to go on date with their significant other.
First, let us answer the question of what makes a good date. According to Sarah Read, “great conversation and especially eye contact” are necessary. Adding to that, Shannon Kelly also said “if he keeps me laughing, then it’s a good date.” So now that you know what it takes to make a good date, the question is how do you apply it to the actual location of the date?
Now, we all know there is always what I call the “out route.” This basically speaks to two different types of dates. You can always go the dinner route, such as taking your date to Applebees, Texas Roadhouse or Jaliscos. But maybe you are not so hungry that night, so you turn to the more obvious choice: the movie date. Lets be real guys, aren’t we tired of watching movies where they sing and dance? Lets stand against the norm and get more creative!
The dates that women find most valuable are those that you take time to actually think about, instead of taking the “out route.”
“Making a home cooked meal together is one of my favorites” said Corrie Miller. “Honestly, if he is putting some effort into it, I will be happy no matter what.”
Guys, you already have some competition. Mount Union Student Joe Bowers is raising the bar, as he commented, “There’s nothing like laying out a blanket in the quad and just star gazing with my baby.”
The nature center is also a good spot for a date, going for a walk with the fall scenery. It is all about keeping the women on their toes and getting creative.
So there it is gentlemen, the secret behind the tough life of dating in Alliance. Whether you have cash or not, there is always a way to make her happy. So the next time you hear “I don’t know? You pick,” you will actually be able to answer with some confidence. Good luck and happy dating.
