15 Fall Date Ideas So Basic They're Basically Brilliant

15 #CoupleGoals-Worthy Fall Date Ideas, In All Their Basic Glory

Fall dates are the best dates.


I always look forward to the fall months when the weather is still warm enough to do things outside and the leaves are beginning to change colors. There are so many fun things to do with your partner during this beautiful time of year. Here are 15 date ideas during this lovely season.

1. Go hiking and have a picnic. 

Pick your favorite scenic trail and pack your favorite assortment of snacks to enjoy at the top with your loved one. Enjoy some treats and a beautiful view of the fall foliage.

2. Go apple picking at an orchard


You can never have too many apples right? Choose a nearby orchard and pick as many apples as you and your significant other can fit in your bags. The excitement continues when you get home and think of all the desserts and dishes you can make with your freshly picked apples.

3. Attend a drive-in movie.

What's more romantic than cuddling up and watching a movie under the stars together? Open the trunk and set up some comfy pillows and blankets.

4. Go to a football game under the lights.

There's something about Friday night football under the lights in the fall. The weather is cool enough that you can enjoy some hot chocolate and cheer on your team with your significant other but warm enough that you can still tailgate.

5. Go to a brewery/cidery/winery.

There's nothing like a beer, cider, or wine tasting of a new fall flavor to get you in the autumn mood.

6. Attend a fall festival.

Fall= harvest events, farmers markets, and festivals galore! Enjoy some fall foods, drinks, music, crafts, decorations and more. It's the perfect way to spend a Saturday with your loved one.

7. Watch a scary Halloween movie together.

You can jump and scream together as you watch your favorite horror classics this season.

8. Make a bonfire and roast marshmallows.


Who said s'mores were only for the summer? They taste just as good in the fall when you're making them with your partner by your side. Snuggle up and enjoy your time together.

9. Visit a haunted house.

Being scared with your partner and holding onto them as you venture through a haunted house together is something special. Whether you're scared or not, knowing they're there makes you feel safer.

10. Go to a pumpkin patch.

It's the only time of year when you suddenly have the strength to lift the heaviest pumpkin you can find. Plus you have some help from your partner. Enjoy some apple cider while you pick the perfect pumpkin to take home and carve together.

11. Go on a hayride at a farm.

You're never too old for a hayride. It's romantic too!

12. Eat an unnecessary amount of cider donuts.

Why are they so addicting? At least you can both agree that you can never eat too many.

13. Attempt to make a fall dish/dessert.


Try something new with your partner so that you can both laugh about if things go south.

14. Watch the sunrise or sunset.


15. Drink a fall-flavored Starbucks drink together.

You'd be surprised how many people like a good PSL or salted caramel latte

These 15 fall date ideas may be #Basic, but your partner will thank you.

Thank You, Thomas Rhett, For Providing Us With These 9 Lyrics Reminding Us True Love Exists

If your ears have yet to be blessed with this mans heart warming music, you are missing out big time


I understand country music does not appeal to everyone out there but if you own a radio or have an instagram there is no way you have not heard the name Thomas Rhett before. Him and his childhood sweetheart Lauren live the closest thing to happily ever after one can obtain in this world. Not only did they adopt a beautiful toddler from Uganda but they just welcomed an adorable baby girl. I personally enjoy each of their posts because it revives my faith in successful relationships. These are a few of his lyrics that reestablish my belief that true love is still out there. Ladies, make sure you find yourself a Thomas Rhett.

1. "Cause everywhere we go girl you're the star of the show"


I mean come on thats just precious.

2. "I know that I can't ever tell you enough, all I need in this life is your crazy love"


I feel like thats a pretty good trade.

3. "Every time we have to say goodbye I'm counting down until we say hello"


If someone told me this I feel like my love for Zac Efron would rapidly dwindle.

4. "Girl that night was just like you, unforgettable"


Who doesn't want to be told they are unforgettable on a daily basis?!

5. "Cause you're all that I adore, you're the one my heart beats for"


Straight out of a Nicholas Sparks movie? I think yes.

6. "You're a saint, you're a goddess, the cutest, the hottest, a masterpiece"


Way better compliment than being told "your hot."

7. "Cause I've been waiting on her since the second grade and I wrote a little song about holding her hand now everyone wants to die a happy man"


If I still loved my second grade crush I don't think I would be writing a song about true love.

8. "I could try to find her get it off my chest now, but I don't want to mess it up so I wish her the best now"


This song gets me every time. He loves her so much that he would hold back his feelings in order for her to be happy. You get a Prince Charming and you get a Prince Charming!

9. "If all I got is your hand in my hand, baby I could die a happy man"


I would not be complaining if a guy was writing these beautiful lyrics about me. (Thomas Rhetts really beautiful wife pictured above).

Ladies, Sliding Into His DMs Is NOT Going To Make Him Want You More

But here's what will.


Ever since the beginning of time, the purpose of man was to hunt. It is embedded in their nature, and it's what gives them purpose. You've probably heard people say “let him chase you" and you've brushed it off as anti-feminist crap that you don't need clogging your mind. But it's true; that's what they crave and, of course, it's not all about the “chase," but it's a big part of it.

By starting this relationship yourself, he'll see you as easy, desperate, and someone he can easily take advantage of and that's not what we want. Hunters don't hunt animals that chase them. They hunt unique animals that are rare, even if they have to go through great lengths to catch them. If you slide into his DMs or start a conversation with him first, you'll never know if he was actually attracted to you for real, or just because you're presenting yourself as an easy catch. You want someone who's genuinely attracted to you from the start, don't you?

As the one being “hunted," you have all the power. You can control when you talk, for how long, when you see each other, and how often because he's waiting on you. You are the keeper of the keys to your kingdom and he can't get in unless you let him. Eventually, you're going to have to tell him everything about you, but don't dump it all on him right away. Give it to him in pieces, it'll leave him believing you're this mysterious girl he has to get to know. You have to keep him interested, or else he'll get bored.

This method is a great way to weed out the men with bad intent. If they want you that badly, they can wait for you, they will take the time to pursue you, to hunt you. And that, my friends, is how you find a good man.

If you want to read more about this whole dating method, I highly recommend a book called "All The Rules: Time-tested Secrets for Capturing the Heart of Mr. Right" by Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider. Some things they say are a little outdated, as it was published in 1995, but most of these “rules" still ring true. My mom made me read it my junior year of high school and I literally live by this book, so if you're interested I suggest checking it out.
