Where is the best place to go on a first date?

What do you talk about?

Who pays the bill?

When should you follow up after the date?

If you’ve ever wondered how to pull of a fantastic first date, I’m revealing some fascinating survey results about what people expect a first date to look like.


Then at the end of the episode, we talk to the married friends out there. Because God knows a “date night out” every single week is not the norm, I’m going to give you our top 10 date night IN ideas!! These date ideas are things John and I have done from the comfort of our own home to make some time to connect and enjoy each other’s company.
