When you hit the dating and hookup scene, the last thing you want to do is wind up taking your date somewhere and have it be a total flop. Picking a location and activity for your date is nerve wracking enough without having to imagine all the ways it can go wrong. It can also be difficult to tell if something you think would be a great date will actually wind up being terrible. Knowing what kinds of dates women really don’t want to go on can help you decide where to avoid when you take her out, so you should try and keep some of these things in mind when choosing where to go.
Don’t Take Her Out to a Ball Game
Unless you know for a fact that the woman you are dating is a serious sports fan, you should never take her out to a sports event. It doesn’t matter how badly you want to go or how much you spent on the tickets, she is not going to appreciate it. You wouldn’t want to spend hours watching something that bores you to tears, and neither do women. She may act chipper during the date, but you can bet she will be checking her watch in anticipation of being able to leave. This is not to mention the fact that sports events can sometimes wind up lasting much longer than anticipated, which is another surefire way to make sure that your date goes over horribly. Always make sure to test the waters before deciding to take your date to a sports event, but if you’re not sure if she will enjoy it, you should err on the side of caution and forget about taking her.
Avoid Bars and Clubs At All Costs
Even if you met your date in a bar or club, you should not take her back to one on a date unless you both agree that it’s where you want to go. The thing that will kill the date in this case is the fact that you will barely be able to hear each other, plus the fact that bars and clubs are generally much better for meeting and hooking up with women, not dating them. You don’t want your date to get jealous if you get approached by other women in the bar or club, so it’s usually much better to avoid returning to these types of establishments.
Family Functions and Weddings
Sure, you may need someone to take to your cousin’s wedding or your latest family reunion, but this is usually not a good idea. Your date is probably not going to be surrounded by people she doesn’t know asking her uncomfortable questions for hours on end, especially if your relationship is fairly new. There’s nothing more awkward, uncomfortable, or boring than being subjected to somebody else’s family stories when you have no real interest in getting to know the family that well. If you are aiming to have a casual relationship, avoid these functions at all costs.
