2017 is here! It's a brand new year. Could it be time for you to turn over a new leaf? What about the possibility of a new relationship? If so, where do you go in Shreveport-Bossier for that all-important first date?? Cheap and fun and expensive and trendy?

Well, there a new dating app out there called Clover and they recently did a study by analyzing data from 1.5 million users across the country, and it looks like cheap and fun wins!

The number one first date hot spot of 2016 was: Starbucks!

In my opinion, that result is not surprising. As a woman, I'd rather have the opportunity to screen my date in a casual, friendly environment before being forced to endure a meal with someone I don't know.

The other top results were:

  • In-N-Out Burger
  • Chick-Fil-A
  • Central Park (this result most likely did not come from fellow Louisianians)
  • Panera Bread

These results are interesting, but that brings me to the most important question. What is the best first date hot spot right here in our area??
