How hard is it to go on Yelp and figure out a place to go? Get with the program, sir! Type in a neighborhood and a cuisine and you're basically done. I don't want to rattle off 4-7 restaurant names for him to consider; I'd like for him to take the lead on this task. Is that so terrible? Because I'll be honest, it's not hot to watch him be devoid of date ideas.
Hasn't it ever occurred to him to hang out with a girl he likes in public? Is this uncharted territory? I could understand if we were in a foreign country and he wasn't well-versed with the lay of the land, but if he's lived in this town for over six months, he surely must've formed an opinion about at least one restaurant to take a girl to.
And, if he hasn't, unless he's Sloth chained to a chair in a dungeon begging for a Baby Ruth, he must have at least two friends in his life he can ask for date suggestions. Do a little gumshoe work on this because, I'm sorry, but tossing your hands up in the air about our first date is not an acceptable option. Guys: pick a nice yet casual place that you take every date to. Make it your standard spot. It'll make both of our lives easier. Trust me.
