Hello all, I was hoping you could help me out a little. I am going to be going on my second date this upcoming week and I'm having a hard time coming up with ideas. I haven't been on the dating scene for 4 years so I'm a bit rusty. So if you all wouldn't mind helping me brainstorm, I'd really appreciate it, thanks! Also, keep in mind I'm up in Wisconsin, and we're going to have the coldest week in ten years.See More
Romance is manly. And every man should know how to plan a great night out for his woman. But, let's face it, sometimes ideas are few and far between. This group is for exchanging ideas about the venerable "Date Night" and other acts of romance.

I have posted a couple times now here on the AOM, but I figured I'd post up an introduction. I'm a senior at UW-Eau Claire, I'll be graduating next December with a management degree. I enjoy shaving, hunting, fishing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling. I love the Art of Manliness, and I am excited to be apart of this wonderful community and getting to know all the people who reside here.See More

"I've seen dogs break ice to retrieve a duck, stand on point with a thorn in the pad, go down a 70 percent grade to corral sheep, chase a car cross-town to be part of a family outing, sniff out a warehouse while policemen crouched outside with pistols drawn, lick a sick man's feet, kiss a crying child's cheek, stare beseechingly at a mother's worried face, raise an arm of a dead-tired man who'd worked too hard to make ends meet."--Bill Tarrant
