Post Date: Aug 19, 2011

Lisa from Monroe says: I am open to go on a date any where in my city. However, if I had to choose, I will say my favorite date location is Cheddars. Just love the environment. I'm not a fan of fancy restaurants but if you want to take me there, it's fine with me. Also, I like chinese, french, southern and seafood (since I am a southern girl).

Connie from Slidell says: We have a park in the middle of the city. It it is right between the train station and the bayou. I love to go there and drink a nice cup of coffee and walk around during the day, or go and sit on a bench at night after a couple of glasses of wine and just have wonderful conversations.

Amy from West Monroe says: My deck behind my apartment. It's big, I have a nice table and a huge umbrella. It's nice out there at night with the music going and a steak grilling. Cheddar's is a great place to eat. The atmosphere is fun and the food is great. The prices can't be beat around here, and the drinks are good too.

Tamara from Mandeville says: Somewhere that allows you to go for a walk after eating such as the Riverwalk or the Lakefront in Mandeville, or even by the Tchefuncte River in Madisonville.

Karen from Denham Springs says: Humm. Considering I haven't been dating yet, I'm not sure. I took a year to regroup before trying this dating website. I would have to say I would like to take in a live LSU game. I love a good meal and going to a fine dining restaurant would be nice. I would also equally enjoy going for a beer and burger and shooting a game of pool, so I'm pretty open.

A Serious Relationship…Are You Ready?

Unfortunately, knowing for certain when you are ready for a serious relationship, isn't one of the simpler things in life. There'll come a time when we "think" we're ready. But then, after we've leaped in, we feel like we're drowning, and we start struggling and kicking to get out of the water. This causes sadness, and often anger, to the person we are with. It's usually not something we're proud of doing to another person, or ourselves. So, here're a few dating and relationship tips to consider before you jump off the cliff…and then realize you have no idea how deep the water is.

The very talented and extremely funny comedian, Jeff Foxworthy, used to say, "You know you're a redneck if…". Well, you know you're ready for a serious relationship if:

  • You start to be bored when going out with others who are not contenders for a long-lasting future, even if they are handsome or beautiful, smart, entertaining and/or recent lottery winners.  Read More

Top 10 Dating Tips

1. Date Night Plan

Waiting until the last minute may make things spontaneous - or disastrous. Plan your date in advance, set expectations and ensure your date is in agreement. Know how to get there, where to park, when things are open, etc. Look like you know how to make things happen seamlessly.

2. Appropriateness Date Location

Make sure what you've picked out and/or suggested has some relevance to what this person might actually enjoy. Doing something you both enjoy will go a long way towards relationship building.

3. Sensitivity

If your date happens on a weeknight, don't select a movie ending at 11.00 p.m. The more solutions you've prepared for in advance, the less anxious your date will be. This clearly shows your thoughtfulness.

4. Respect

Sure, she or he really looks great and you're more impressed as the evening goes along. However, don't push physical attraction too soon. You could be making a serious mistake if you attempt to manhandle her or him.

5. Listen to Your Date

Listening is very important at any stage of dating or a relationship. Show her or him you know them better at the end of the date, than you did at the beginning.

6. Stay Light

Do something positive you both can share in, without it being embarrassing. Select something appealing to your date; i.e., go to a water park if she or he likes water, or an outdoor rock concert if they like the performers. Perhaps, see a romantic comedy or take a hike. Whatever you're doing, don't sit and talk about your exes, troubled kids, etc. These are conversation topics which will come later if the relationship progresses.

7. Connect

Make a real effort to find commonalities. Listen and learn a little about each other's childhood and past. See if your values and life's outlook are similar. This is an excellent exploration period.

8. Anticipate

As always, you should look your best. A light kiss at the end of the night that promises more…someday...is sexier than a lip scrunching passionate kiss that surprises your date and possibly puts him or her off.

9. Laugh

Laughter is bonding, infectious and attractive. If you're going to the movies, ensure the film's funny; if going to a comedy club, know the comedians are funny; or go roller skating and laugh at yourselves. Laughter is a great release for any nervousness.

10. Show Appreciation

Acknowledge someone's kindness, thoughtfulness or generosity. Don't assume anything and don't come off as being spoiled. Verbally let them know their hard work, planning or good humor didn't go unnoticed. And, make yourself an irresistible choice for future dates.
