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 I Spend So Much Time With My Boyfriend

And I love it!

Many people think that spending too much time with your significant other is a bad thing. I think that wanting to spend time with them is a blessing. Don't get me wrong, we do not spend every waking minute together. We make sure that we save time for our friends and family, but in the end, we cherish our time together.

He brings out the best in me. When I first met my boyfriend, I knew he was something special. I didn't know what it was, but I knew that it would be important someday. I found out that when I am with him, I am an all-around happier person. I look at things in different ways, and I now know a whole new world of people. He has helped me overcome obstacles that have been holding me back for quite some time.

We enjoy each others company. I can't even begin to tell you how many times we have just sat in silence simply knowing that you are in the company of someone who loves you is comforting. He makes things that would usually be boring a lot more fun. When we do homework together, he makes the work seem like it's not work, and things like a simple trip to Walmart ends up being a comedy show.

We are best friends. Many people say that they are best friends with their significant other. For us, it's true. I can tell him anything. There is no hiding things in our relationship; we come right out and say what we want to say.

He pushes me to succeed. Whether it is with weight loss or homework, he holds me accountable. When I start a new workout, he keeps me on track to be whom I want to be. We make sure that we put homework before going out and that helps us in the long run. Giving up that pizza can be easy when you are spending time with someone you love.

He makes life seem not so hard. College can be hard and make life difficult. It seems that I always have something new happening or another meeting to attend. When I get stressed or overwhelmed, he makes sure that I take the time to put into perspective what really matters and focus on that. And when that fails, we go get McDonald's.

He supports me. He has never once told me that one of my ideas was stupid or out of reach. Whenever something new comes up that I think would be exciting, he is the first one to rally behind me and let me know that it is a good idea (even if it's not).

I love him. Love is a strong word, but I can honestly say I have never felt like this before. Between everything that he does for me, I do just as much for him simply because I love seeing him happy. Spending so much time together isn't hard to do because we love each other. If somewhere down the road we decide to split ways, I will still love him and he will still love me. That will never go away.

Is Social Media Killing Romance?

In a modern era filled with technology, are the communication outlets we rely on destroying our ability to connect?

I have always been a girl that has been stereotypically obsessed with romance novels and movies. Honestly, I enjoy the concept of romance in and of itself. I have always dreamed of a passionate, deep romance of my own complete with a meet-cute, dates, and affection. However, it seems as though the concept of romance has skewed dramatically as social media continues to flourish.

So many romance movies are shifting to acknowledge how time-consuming social media is in teenagers lives. Even so, social media seems to be such a minuscule part of the relationships while, in reality, social media outlets tend to be a major form of communication in our society.

It seems as though our entire lives are digital and relationships are no exceptions. Meeting people the "old fashioned way" is almost obsolete now thanks to dating apps and other mediums of communication. We seem to be taking away the basis of relationships; intimacy and connection.

Additionally, social media has been detrimental, especially pertaining to self-esteem and self-image. Social media allow self-scrutinization to become the norm. Comparison is almost a reflex while scrolling through social media so why would romance and relationships be any different? Social media can create ridiculous expectations for relationships. Apps like Instagram are a media for sharing the best of your life, so everyone seems to have a perfect life on there. These expectations and comparisons seem to be a deteriorating factor for relationships.

Another phenomenon that I have noticed, thanks to social media, is that meeting people is easier than ever. This is not a bad thing per se. However, since it is so easy, it seems that all the effort is gone. Flirting with someone who "slid into your DMs" is exponentially easier than flirting with someone in real life. Apps like Snapchat, Twitter, and Instagram are simple methods to communicate and therefore, our communication has become simple.

Hookup culture is another thing that has become increasingly popular with the rise of social media. According to statistics, correlation does not imply causation but, at least to me, it seems that there are entirely too many aspects in common for them to not be related. Since communication is exponentially easier, so have "booty calls." Late night texts. or "snaps" have diminished the chase and allowed for actual relationships to be foreign to our generation.

In conclusion, social media has provided us with an unbelievable amount of benefits. However, it also may be draining our generation of connection and emotion. It seems as though social media has driven us into an age of simplicity and complacency.
