If you aren't dating an Ottawa boy, here's 12 reasons why you probably should. And, well, if you are lucky to be dating one, here's 12 reasons assurring you that you made a good decision:
He's in touch with nature
He'll take you on romantic hikes in the Gatineau Hills and will pose with you for a photo at Champlain Lookout. He may even own a pickup truck and have a photograph with a Bass Pro Shops hat and a fish, if that's your thing.
He probably speaks French
It's the language of love, guys.
He's definitely into cuddling
Hey, the winters are cold in Ottawa.
He'll buy you really nice presents
With so many new stores at the Rideau Centre, there's so many more ways for him to spoil you.
He will most likely buy you a BeaverTail on at least one of your dates
Where's the ring.
A man who can survive sinkholes, the snow and the OC Transpo is a man of endurance - a man you can commit to.
He can take you on extra cute dates in the winter
Skating on the Canal and taking pics with the ice sculptures in Confederation Park is what couple goals are made of.
He's popular by default
Everyone knows everyone in Ottawa. It's the biggest small town in the world, so you know he has friends somewhere.
He knows where to get the best shawarma
Do you feel that. That's your heart racing.
He might rule the country one day
Being in Canada's capital, the political HQ of our country, he might just be a politician who will become prime minister one day. Yes, you can potentially be the next Sophie Gregoire Trudeau.
Algonquin College, Carleton U...heck...even uOttawa. Ottawa is a university and college town as much as it's a government city.
He'll probably take you on fancy dates
Andaz rooftop, JOEY Lansdowne, government salaries. 1/2 Ottawa boyfriends work in the government.
