You don’t need a whole lot of anything, just each other… and your truck.
There are so many reasons to date a man (or woman) with a truck, but these 13 dates keep it simple, and will have you making memories that last forever.
Just you, your girl, and your truck…
1. Backroad cruising.
Just going on a drive down country roads will always be a good idea. You can talk or just enjoy each other’s company while listenin’ to the radio.
2. Late night drives.
Personally, this is one of my favorite things to do, and it is even better doing it with someone you are comfortable with. Some of the best and deepest conversations can come from late night drives in the middle of nowhere.
3. Watching the stars in the bed.
Grab a few pillows, lay down a blanket or two, and pull your honey in tight. So romantic.
4. Making a tent and camping out.
Make good use of your truck bed and spend the night. You don’t even have to go out and buy the tents that are made for trucks, you can get creative with it.
5. Drive-in movies.
Get online and figure out where your nearest drive in movie theater is, pick a good one, grab a couple lawn chair or blankets, and you’re set. Drive-in movies are typically pretty cheap so that’s a win.
6. Fishing off the tailgate.
Park your truck right up on the water and take a seat. You never know what you are gonna catch.
Tailgate sittin’ right up next to the bonfire can be a romantic date night or turn into a throw down with your buddies.
8. Go off-roading.
Whether you are exploring, gettin’ muddy, gettin’ stuck, or just raisin’ a little bit of hell… this can be a whole lot of fun.
9. Have a picnic.
A picnic in a truck bed is like a dream date. Park down by the lake or in the middle of a pasture, anywhere in the country is perfect for this.
10. Watch the sunset.
You can lay some blankets down or set up a couple lawn chairs in the bed… just point the tailgate west, have a little background country music, and let the sun do the rest.
11. Teach her how to drive.
Or HIM. Ladies you might have to show the man a thing or two about drivin’ YOUR truck (which is badass). Anyway, one of the most fun dates I’ve been on is when my boyfriend taught me how to drive stick shift. We were at it for hours and was just a whole lot of fun learning something new.
12. A roadtrip to nowhere.
If you have a free day, just hop in the truck and hit the road. It doesn’t matter where you are going, just keep driving until you stumble across your destination. Spontaneous dates are always the best.
13. Make a jacuzzi.
Bring out your redneck side and build yourself a place to cool off right there in your truck bed. This is incredibly fun and I highly recommend trying.
