I've had some really nice dates at fancy restaurants where wine cost hundreds of dollars a bottle. But on the other hand, I've also had wonderful dates where we simply sat in a park and ate Chinese food. I've also taken walks along the riverside and found myself pouring through the artifacts in museums. There are so many options out there!

After Redditor MuffinTuna asked the online community, "What's the most underrated place for a date?" people chimed in with their own suggestions and we have to say we're inspired.


"Took my first girlfriend..."

Took my first girlfriend to a roller rink. Absolute blast, lots of handholding.

"I love diving..."

Aquariums are awesome. I love diving, and it's kinda cool to have random facts in your back pocket. Also partial to mini golf, breweries if you both like beer, and breakfast joints.

"There is a place in my hometown..."

There is a place in my hometown called pizzavilla. I'm pretty sure the city is never gonna get rid of it. I love the place as it has pizza, icecream, and a bunch of games. It would be a good place for a date.

"If they're willing to meet you..."

A good local breakfast spot. If they're willing to meet you at 8 in the morning, you know they're into you.

"Play some games..."

An arcade or carnival.

Play some games, good people watching, eat some food, lots of opportunities for flirting and friendly competition.

"As a bonus..."

Why has no one said mini golf? It's fun, lasts an appropriate amount of time, and no one is good at it. You can tell if your date is competitive, easy-going, and/or funny.

As a bonus, you can make out inside of a hollowed out dinosaur if things go well!

"Bonus points..."

Botanical gardens, especially if you memorize some interesting facts about some of the plants. Bonus points if you pack a picnic basket.

"Simple but great."

One really memorable one was fish and chips from a take away.

Got lunch, drove to the beach. Had the fish and chips on the beach then went for a walk.

Simple but great.

"If you're introverted like me..."

Aquarium!!! If you're introverted like me, you'll always have something to look at/talk about if you're not so good at making conversation. Plus, I think being able to stop and appreciate little things like some dope-@ss jellyfish is a good quality. Also... fish!!!!!!!

"Another one is..."

A used bookstore. It gives you a real feel for what sorts of things they are interested in, and you can pick one book for each other to read.

Another one is, go buy an item of clothing together. They can help you look as they think you look best, which also shows you a lot. And it's a bonus for the next get together.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
