Mark the date

Go-to date spots for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner which means it’s important to have some go to date spots! When picking a place to go, consider the length of the relationship. With newer relationships, sticking to something fun and engaging is better. But as for longer relationships, any place works. Whether looking for a simple or elaborate date, here are a few ideas.

The first idea is a classic coffee date. There are so many local coffee shops with welcoming environments, perfect for a first or second date. Going out for coffee and talking is a great way to get to know a partner.

Another date idea is to go bowling. Bowling is not only fun, but it’s also very engaging and interactive. If small talk on the date is worrisome, an activity such as bowling is a great fix. It’s a low stress and fun environment to be in.

One date idea that never goes out of style is going to dinner. It doesn’t have to be a fancy restaurant, a simple one will do. Dinner allows for time to get to know each other and is a simple date to plan. Some good restaurants on the southside are Texas Roadhouse, Olive Garden and Bubba’s.

Lastly, going to a sports game can be both fun and it can help break the awkward first date barrier. Going to a Colt’s or Pacers game is a great way to get to know a partner. It helps learn their favorite teams and their level of competitiveness. 

Dates aren’t always going to be perfect or go as planned. But, picking the right spot for a date can help eliminate that worry. Dating is supposed to be fun so be sure to pick a place that allows for some fun while getting to know a partner.

About the Contributor
Lauren Lowry, Promotions Manager
Hello, I’m Lauren Lowry! I am a senior this year, and it’s my second year on The Journal. This year, I am in charge of Promotions. Other than The Journal, I love listening to music, hanging out with my friends, drinking coffee and trying new coffee places. My music taste varies from each genre, but I would have to say my favorite artists are Taylor Swift, The Backseat Lovers and Gracie Abrams. I’m working on collecting each of their entire discographies with vinyls. Right now, I have six out of ten Taylor Swift albums, two of The Backseat Lovers, and one of Gracie Abrams vinyls. As for hanging out with my friends, we love getting ice cream, dinner or going shopping. Our go to ice cream place is definitely Mrs. Curls. Last but not least, I love coffee. My favorite kind of coffee would be a cold brew, especially if it’s from Starbucks. One of the best small coffee shops is called Fresh Pots and it is located on Main Street. One reason I love that place is because they have the pumpkin flavor around year round, unlike other places where it is only seasonal.  Overall, I’m very excited to be on The Journal this year, and I can’t wait to see what opportunities it will bring me.
