Dates are not all that they are cracked up to be. With lack of conversations and awkward situations, more often than not, a date in 2017 is expected to be a flop. The problem lies in the fact that men think that the success rate of a date is based on what base you were able to to get to before the end of the night.

Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if the date is terrible, don't hold your breath on waiting for that home run.

Despite what you have probably been taught, girls are smarter than what the bimbos on MTV have made us out to seem. If you ended up with a kiss at the end of the night, it probably had nothing to do with your "charismatic" personality. A girl doesn't need too much for a date to feel successful.

If you want to end this night on a good note with a promise of a second date, please take my advice and use it. Here are five tips to make a date a rewarding one.

Tip 1: Be a gentleman.

It's true that we are living in a generation in which women know that they can do everything that a man can do. We know that we are a strong and independent species, but that doesn't mean we expect to fend for ourselves the entire moment. Open doors for the lady. Offer your jacket to her when she gets cold. Let her handle the aux chord on the drive to the date. It's the small stuff that counts. Even though it's 2017, a girl still likes to feel as if she is being courted sometimes.

Tip 2: Ask for her opinion.

Make sure that you include her in making decisions for the date. If you go to the movies, ask her which movie she wants to see. Make sure the dinner you chose is something that she is actually going to matter. When you include her in the decisions being made, it makes the date enjoyable for both people.

Tip 3: Tell jokes, even if they suck.

When all else fails, make the girl laugh. Your jokes don't even have to be funny. If you laugh hard enough, then your date has no option but to laugh as well.

Tip 4: Make food a priority.

Food fills up the emptiness when there is silence in conversations. You don't have to pay for a full price meal at the nicest Italian restaurant in town. More than likely, a girl will be happy with an ice cream cone and an orange soda.

Tip 5: Conversation, conversation, conversation.

Listen to all the little stories the girl is telling you. I promise she has a reason for telling them even if the story is completely useless to the task at hand. Don't just listen though. It's a date; therefore, make sure you have some stories to compete with hers. A date is for getting to know each other. A date is to see if you have potential to make dating a repeating occurrence.

The truth is — girls, even though they don't advertise it for the world, yearn for the old-fashioned feeling of a date. Therefore, the key to a perfect date is to make the date about more than physical contact. To make a date something that a girl looks forward to, you have to connect yourself with the girl mentally and physically. Dating is not a science; all you have to do is pay attention to the small stuff and make her feel like more than any other girl.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
