Okay ladies, today we are going to talk about dates that guys want to go on! Having a date night is a great way to stay close to your husband.
Sure, you could sit around and stare at each other for hours, but a big part of building a relationship with your man is actually going out and experiencing different things together.
If you are not married and just dating then a great date like this may be a nice surprise to show your guy that you listen and are into him. Often times dates end up being something you both enjoy or more of what we women enjoy. So it is a good idea to throw one of these dates that guys enjoy in the mix! All posts are my opinions and things that have worked well in my life. Please consult a professional for advice.

Dream dates from the guy’s perspective
A date that they would enjoy, not considering what their wife or girlfriend would like. Dinner — This was a fairly common answer. It had some fun variety to it.
Some men said just a good dinner so they could talk and eat good food. Some liked the getting dressed up and going out to dinner idea. Many said dinner and another idea from the list. So main thing here… men like to eat! Make sure it a restaurant and food that your guy enjoys!
Dates guys actually want to go on
Wear a jersey or fun attire and cheer on his time! Be fun and enjoy the time with him, even if it is not your cup of tea. Casino — Find a local casino and test your luck! It is fun to learn new games. Have your guy teach you the ropes. Shooting Range — If your guy enjoys guns this might be perfect for him. I went on a first date once to a shooting range.
