8 Spots Every West Chester Local Should Check Out For Date Night

8 Spots Every West Chester Local Should Check Out For Date Night

Some inspiration for your weekend.

So as summer is right around the corner, a lot of us will be wanting to have some summer fun. Part of that summer fun is going on a date with that special someone. Some couples have been together for a while and know their spots, or maybe they're looking to spice it up and try something new. However, if you're a fledgeling take some notes brothers and sistas because I've got some date spots coming your way.

For the First Date:

Starbucks (West Chester, PA)

Starbucks is a great place for a first date because it can easily expose right off the bat how particular the other person is by how finicky they are about their order. It can also say a lot about their personality based on how they treat the staff at the counter.

Dairy Queen (West Chester, PA)

I feel like ice cream has some potential for some really cute moments. Like you know they're a winner if they offer to pay for your blizzard. Also, you could wipe ice cream adorably off their face (of course after asking if it's okay).

Having Some Fun:

Bowling Palace (Downingtown, PA)

Personally, I don't know a person alive who doesn't like bowling. I feel like it's more than just throwing a ball at some pins. It's a game of teamwork. It also gives ample opportunities for double dates and adorably helping them make a shot.

Trampoline Park (Downingtown, PA)

Who wouldn't love to act like a total goofball like a bunch of kids with that special someone jumping on trampolines? A wet rag, that's who. If you want a fun time, go flip out at the Trampoline Park.

Moderately Priced Cozy Places:

Kildare's (West Chester, PA)

If you live in or near West Chester and have never been to Kildare's, firstly, shame on you! Secondly, it is a great place to get authentic Irish food. Lastly, it has cute settings for a couple such as this one. Totally an intimacy enabler!

Limoncello (West Chester, PA)

This place is probably high balling on being moderately priced, but according to my mom, it is so worth it. Plus this looks like a cute place to get cozy with your sweetie!

Big $$$ Bites:

Melting Pot (King of Prussia, PA)

This is also a great place for a group date! It's on the pricey side but getting to dip meat in vats of beer cheese is totally worth it. This is also an opportunity for intimacy via feeding each other food.

P.F. Chang's (Glen Mills, PA)

Okay, so I know what you're thinking. P.F. Chang's is a commercialized chain. However they have delicious food and a romantic ambiance at night. Perfect for a date.

Why You Should Stop Chasing Him

You deserve better.

They say “the thrill of the chase" makes someone more enticing. There's just something about wanting something you can't have that drives you crazy (in a good way). There is never a dull moment. Pursuing him is a challenge. Nothing comes easily. What's the fun in that anyway?

I'm going to tell you this: stop chasing him. Stop forgiving him when he forgets to answer your text messages and phone calls. Stop being the one to always make plans. Stop letting him bail on you. Stop waiting around for him. Stop being lied to. Stop making excuses when he doesn't make time for you. There is a difference between someone who is “hard to get" and a flat out jerk who doesn't give you the time of day. Stop letting him use you.

You deserve to be with someone who makes you fall asleep every night in the middle of texting him because neither of you want the conversation to end. You deserve someone who plans dates for the two of you. You deserve someone who asks you to hang out before midnight. You deserve someone who wants to spend time with you just as much as you do with them. You deserve someone who insists on paying for your ice cream. You deserve someone who won't deceive you. You deserve someone who is straightforward. You deserve attention. You deserve affection. You deserve a partnership that is mutual, not one-sided. You deserve to be chased.

You are better than 3 a.m. “Hey" texts. You are better than a night spent watching a movie just to fool around. You are better than trying to decode his vague messages. You are better than his shadiness. You are better than mind games. You are better than being ignored.

If you have to chase him, he's not worth it. Don't settle for someone who makes you beg for his attention. If he is genuinely interested in getting to know you, he will put in the effort. A relationship where your feelings are reciprocated is far more rewarding than one where you constantly feel like you have to drag him along.

Change your mentality. Become more independent. Be confident, be bold. Find happiness in being alone. Don't waste your time pathetically chasing after someone who doesn't feel the same, but doesn't have the heart or the courage to tell you so. Your self-confidence and positivity will make you radiant, and eventually, you will attract the kind of guy who is mature enough to not mess with your head.

Newsflash! It's Time For Everybody To Love Everybody

Come on, people, get it together.


I, personally, think it's time for everybody to just start loving each other. Now listen, this doesn't mean you need to actually love everyone, but at least accept them. Acceptance is the closest thing we are gonna get to loving each other.

Let me tell you a little something: politics at the moment are very messy. No matter which side it is, it's messy. There is no denying that. If you try to deny that, then good for you, you're not helping anybody. If you really want some change, you need to start being the bigger person. Change isn't about who can yell about something louder or who has the "better" argument, it's about being respectful.

Just because someone has an opposing view does not mean you need to yell at them. Does yelling solve anything ever? Maybe temporarily, like for 2 minutes, but that's about as long as you're gonna get. There's absolutely no need to indirectly say something about certain individuals on social media. Yes, there is freedom of speech, but everybody should keep in mind why they have that right and why they still have it.

I do not understand why it is so hard to be respectful of one another. If someone goes after another person talking about how absolutely terrible it is of them thinking something should be illegal, the person who's being yelled at should respectfully ignore the other individual's disrespectful remarks. If the individual does not stop, then they are not aware that they are making no difference in the world.

What I'm trying to get at here is that in order to love each other, we really need to accept all our differences. If we really want change we need to go right to the sources, not just yell at each other from across the street. If everyone learned to accept each other, life would be a whole lot easier. Is this ever going to happen? Of course not. This is the solution though, whether you think so or not.
