Dating: Summer in the city

It may feel like Phoenix outside, but this is Atlanta – a place that offers many options in date destinations. We talked earlier this week about having solid date plans for date night and we are fortunate to take advantage of all Atlanta has to offer! We have activities and locations that are ideal for night dates, daytime dates, lazy dates, adventurous dates…you get the idea.

Our good friends at HowAboutWe.com revealed that Atlanta daters have particular locations that we like to frequent on dates:

Top 10 Summer Date Spots:

1. Piedmont Park
2. High Museum of Art
3. The Tabernacle
4. Museum of Design Atlanta
5. Turner Field
6. Atlantic Station
7. SweetWater Brewing Company
8. Georgia Aquarium
9. Atlanta Symphony Hall
10. Fontaine’s Oyster House

I have only been to 1,2, 3 and 4 on a date. All really fun and memorable outings, and I plan to get to the remaining soon! The destinations helped, but I suspect that I was deeply distracted by my date. When you ask out the right people, your date destination becomes the cherry on top of the already iced cake, am I right??

There were also a few other notable facts about dating in Atlanta during the summer:

The dating site also uncovered the following in their research of Atlanta’s Summer Dating Trends:

-Atlanta singles love going to sporting events when summer time rolls around. Specifically, heading to a Braves game. Atlanta’s sport of choice, with 1 in 4 dates in the “play” category involving Turner Field.

-Another way Atlanta singles get their hearts pumping? Hiking. Hiking dates are suggested 2x more often during the summer.

-Volunteering date ideas are suggested 10% more often in Atlanta during the summer.

-Looking for something a little more unique? Hot air balloon dates also trended throughout June.

-Dates involving Brazilian cuisine are suggested 26% more often during the summer, a departure from winter’s favorite: French fare.

I have done the volunteering date idea and I was pleasantly surprised at my date’s willingness to go and not complain. I think you can tell a lot about a person when you observe them helping others.

Do you change your dating habits in the summer? Do you go to different places and do different things?

Naw…you back pedaling. You think because you can’t be concretely identified you’re gonna pull the switcharoo and pretend you don’t have a clue. BS…yeah you do. I’m smarter than that… Naaaw, you thought I was gonna run and hide from your threats.

Leggs — No, not that. I just thought ATL Guy was the same “ATL Guy” that had been around off & on before. Just a random ass. Didn’t realize there was any alter-ego.

So, ATL Guy, if it makes you feel any better, I didn’t think you were anyone else. I still think you’re an asshole, but I at least assumed you were you. :)

You faking. Yeah, you started out dropping that Elijah email addy. That didn’t work so you tried to spin it and PRETEND you was kidding and PRETENDED to holler at other folks. Remember asking me “since I’m your blog boo how many others have you had” Naw you was not kidding. NONE OF YOU DAMN BUSINESS. And from there you’ve gone on and on and on with it everyday day. Naw, I’m nowhere near slow. You been poking and picking every since. Damn creepy self, sitting back watching what I type everyday. You crazed f@ck.

As mentioned, I could destroy you on this blog if I wanted to, but I don’t want to. I have no issue with you, its all good (as mentioned before). I own up to what I type so I keep the same name, but haven’t been on here in like a year. So I was getting confused what you’re talking about, but now I know you’re talking about someone else and being pissed about that. Go find that person and yell at them if that makes you feel better. Couldn’t understand why you were so mad

ATL dude I’m not you but if I was I’d just shut it down, if you’re not the one we know cool let it go. Get off Cely and stand up like a man, can’t you see going on and on is making you look weird.

Destroy me to who? Ding ding ding…posting information destroys no one…UNLESS YOU LET IT. Tell it, I will help you get it said. Credit? Tell it Child out of wedlock? Tell it Sex before marriage?

And like I said YOU CAN DISPLAY WHATEVER IT IS YOU THINK WILL DESTROY. IF YOU AIN’T JESUS CHRIST THE RIGHTEOUS, I DON’T GET BROKEN DOWN LIKE THAT.

I OWN my home, I have a cool 17 grand in the bank, I own my car, I don’t f@ck around…with Peter Paul and John. Tell whatever the hell you want to. I will be back Monday morning (Lord willing of course) blogging.

well heck. I might not be the only one in the joint not getting any. if ATLguy is still sweating something he tried to get way back when and cutting up like all this over it, he might not be getting any either. guess I might want to get out there and find some if going without for extended periods makes you do all this.

And, if you have you think you have the same moniker as someone else, change yours.

But, how uncanny is it for two people to pick that particular moniker??

ATL Guy, I’d like to politely ask that you leave. I know it’s a public forum, but your continued comments only serve to keep things riled up. Lurk if you must, but please stop with the inflammatory comments.
