This should not be much of a surprise, but men and women have very different ideas about what makes a good date.

Here are four date ideas that men generally cannot stand.

  • The opera: for most men, there is not much appealing about putting on formal clothes and spending a ton of money on tickets just to hear people in costumes sing songs in a language you cannot understand.
  • Hiking: According to, nature is overrated for most men. Limited access to Internet means no checking sports scores.
  • Taking a trip: everyone says they like to travel, but men see it as expensive and a hassle, making it more of a burden than a fun date getaway.
  • Shopping: there is nothing appealing about following a woman from store to store, holding her purse, or waiting for her to try on dresses and shoes.
