As a girl I can confirm, we can be very cryptic and confusing. It is safe to say more often than not when we are dating someone, we will not come right and say what we mean (no all women, some). Is you girl like that? She beats around the bush, drops hints, but when you ask her a direct question like "where should we go on a date this week?", the reply is "I don't know" or "whatever you want"?
Honestly, why are we like this. If you're the girl that can come straight out and tell her s/o where she wants to be taken out- go you! But if you're the GF that is holding out and just waiting for your s/o to plan the date and exceute the date which you just expect him to know about, this article is for him.
Dear S/O, let me help you. These are just a few of the places in the city that make for great date nights and are places that may have come across your girl's mind more often than not. Next date night, try to hit up one of these places!
