15 Fall Dates You Wish Your Boyfriend Would Take You On

15 Fall Dates You Wish Your Boyfriend Would Take You On

Apple orchards, pumpkins, and corn mazes, oh my!

If you don't know where to take your boo this fall, or you're just pressed for time and money, then here is a list of fall date ideas to get you started on the fall season!

1. The Apple Orchard

This is one of my favorite fall dates. I love going to my local orchard and looking through the market place, buying some hot cider, and of course Pumpkin donuts and apple cinnamon donuts! Also, the orchard is perfect for picture opportunities.

2. Corn Maze

A corn maze can usually be found at the local apple orchard, pumpkin patch, or just one that was created right inside or outside of your town! Just grab your partner and go get lost for awhile!

3. Haunted House

Before embarking on this date, do some research. If you're like me, you like to actually get scared, so find out what haunted houses are available to you and look at the ratings and what people are saying! You don't want to spend a ton of cash on something that won't leave you with wet pants (not really don't do that it might ruin the date).

4. Hayride

Find someone with a trailer, grab a couple friends, or just go by yourself, grab some blanket and bundle up and just enjoy the ride! Hayrides are great for just sitting, relaxing, and talking!

5. A Walk in the Woods

Walking through the woods is so calming and peaceful, especially when it's through a tunnel of trees and leaves. I also love looking at all the color changes and just admiring the colors of fall, and it's even better with someone by your side.

6. Coffee Shop

I love coffee, so it's important to me to try all kinds. On a chilly fall day, it would be really fun to go to a coffee shop with your significant other and order your favorite hot beverage, whether that be a Pumpkin Spice Latte or just a simple hot chocolate!

7. The Pumpkin Patch

Take your special someone to the local pumpkin patch and scan the rows of pumpkins. My favorite thing to do is to try to find the biggest and roundest pumpkin to take home.

8. Carving the Pumpkins

And then, of course, you have to do something with the Pumpkins you just picked, so create some cool carvings with your significant other! They can be cute or scary!

9. Movie Night

This is especially great when it's Halloween time. For me, I like to order in (probably pizza), put some PJs on, grab some blankets, pick out my favorite scary movies, and snuggle up on the couch.

10. Raking Leaves

And then immediately jump right into them after raking them all into neat and clean piles.

11. Football Games

I don't fully understand the game of football, but I love watching it and being around people who DO get it because they get SO intense and I love it.

12. Halloween Parties

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I've always loved making my own costumes, so making a couples costume is twice the fun! Brainstorm ideas, I usually use Pinterest, and create a couples costume and go out to some Halloween parties!

13. A Day Inside

There is honestly nothing better than waking up in the morning, seeing that it's kind of a more dreary fall day, and deciding to stay inside all day, mainly in bed, and snuggle up next to your significant other, take naps, talk, and watch movies.

14. Attend a Festival

There are a lot of Fall Festivals that take place all over the world. For example, in my state, there's the Fall Festival in Evansville, IN, where there are fall activities and fried foods, and I'm sure if you researched it, you could find something like this in your area too!

15. Decorate for Fall

I love fall (obviously). It's my favorite season to decorate for because everything is mixed in a beauty of colors like red, brown, and purple. If you don't want to decorate your home space alone, grab your partner and start decorating! Have them hang wall ornaments, stick on window stickers, and don't forget to put out the pumpkins you carved!

Why Girls Love The Dad Bod

If your man can rock the dad bod, he's a keeper.


In case you haven't noticed lately, girls are all about that dad bod.

Girls have been dealing with body image issues since the beginning of time until recent (for those of you who consider yourselves to be "Thick thin") I hadn't heard about this body type until my roommate mentioned it. She used to be crazy over guys she claimed had the dad bod.

After observing the guys she found attractive, I came to understand this body type well and was able to identify it. The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, "I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time." It's not an overweight guy, but it isn't one with washboard abs, either.

The dad bod is a new trend and fraternity boys everywhere seem to be rejoicing. Turns out skipping the gym for a few brews last Thursday after class turned out to be in their favor. While we all love a sculpted guy, there is just something about the dad bod that makes boys seem more human, natural, and attractive. Here are a few reasons that girls are crazy about the dad bod.

It doesn't intimidate us.
Few things are worse than taking a picture in a bathing suit, one being taking a picture in a bathing suit with a guy who is crazy fit. We don't want a guy that makes us feel insecure about our body. We are insecure enough as it is. We don't need a perfectly sculpted guy standing next to us to make us feel worse.

SEE ALSO: Slim Thick Is The New Thin

We like being the pretty one.
We love people saying "they look cute together." But we still like being the center of attention. We want to look skinny and the bigger the guy, the smaller we feel and the better we look next to you in a picture.

Better cuddling.
No one wants to cuddle with a rock. Or Edward Cullen. The end.

Good eats.
The dad bod says he doesn't meal prep every Sunday night so if you want to go to Taco Tuesday or $4 pitcher Wednesday, he'd be totally down. He's not scared of a cheat meal because he eats just about anything and everything.

You know what you're getting.
Girls tend to picture their future together with their guys early on. Therefore, if he already has the dad bod going on, we can get used to it before we date him, marry him, have three kids. We know what we are getting into when he's got the same exact body type at the age of 22 that he's going to have at 45.

So there you go. A simple break down of why girls everywhere are going nuts over this body type on males. We like it. We love it. We want some more of it. So here's to you dad bods, keep it up. Men, confidently strut that gut on the beach because while you stare at us in our bikinis we will be staring just as hard.

I Realized I Deserve Better Than Your Half-Assed Crap, and Now I Won't Doubt Myself Again

It's not me, it's you.


To all the guys who made me feel like shit,

It took me a long time to come to this conclusion.

You know why?

Because a small part of me has always been a pushover. A small part of me always wanted to play the martyr... which is why whenever something crappy happened, I would take half of the blame for it. Don't get me wrong, I know I am no saint. I know that I have flaws just like every other human being but what I don't appreciate is being made felt like the fault lies in me.

I am sorry that you are broken, so am I, but I can't fix you. And, you can't fix me. I know all our life we come across such movies and stories where people meet and fix each other, but that is not the truth. We can never fix another person because there is nothing to fix. Each of us is our own brand of crazy and yes, we all have some flaws. Don't like them? Then, change yourself. But, don't do it because someone else wants you to change it. The truth is, we can't fix each other. All of us are responsible for our own broken parts and happiness. All anyone can do for you is to stay with you and help you through it all, showing you they care and love you when you don't feel so lovable.

Until recently, I always kept wondering what is wrong with me. Why couldn't I find someone who would stay longer? And, then it suddenly hit me. The problem is that I accept too much, I understand too much. I am a person who would accept you as a whole, flaws, and strengths included. I am not going to change you because when you love someone, you love their darkest parts too. You know what my major problem is? It is that I won't nag you, ever. I would accept you with your quirks and your flaws, and I would love all of you, every single day. And people, well most people, don't want that. They want someone who would change them, who would push them to become a better version of themselves. They want someone to get rid of their dark parts and to mend everything that is broken inside of them.


But I won't do that. I won't mend your cracks because you are too afraid to do it yourself. All I will do is pour love in those cracks and support you to fix it yourself. And that's when I realized that this is not my problem. This has never been my fault. All of you leaving, because I didn't push you to change, is not my fault.

Because, if you are stupid enough to let go of a girl who would stand through it all with you, accepting you the way you are. Then, sweetheart, it is not my loss. It is yours. It will always be your loss. Because, no matter how hard you try, there is no prince or princess coming to save you. You are your own savior, and if you are waiting for someone to change you, then you have a long way to go.

Because love doesn't force you to change. It doesn't nag you or berate you. When someone really loves you, they just stay close and keep showering you with their love, and when this happens, a part of you automatically evolves, without even knowing.

And this is what I realized. I am good the way I am. I don't need to question myself every day or berate myself anymore. So, I am done wondering why you all couldn't stay because now, I know.

And this time, the answer is: actually, it isn't me, it's you.


The girl who realized her worth
