Last updated: July 26, 2016 A common concern that I hear about living in Flower Mound is that the social scene is lacking, and that there are no good places to turn to in order to find attractive singles to meet (and also that there are no good venues nearby). Many people like to strongly allude to the idea that Flower Mound is just one big anti-social bubble – and that you have to head to Uptown (McKinney Avenue) or Addison to get a taste of DFW’s buzzing nightlife! However, I think that a lot of this one massively overstated misconception!
Sure, heading to Uptown or Addison is an easy way to find a bunch of attractive singles hanging out in popular bars, clubs and lounges. But, Flower Mound is still packed with so much underrated potential that I legitimately consider Flower Mound to be Dallas’ diamond in the rough for singles. Many people refuse to believe me when I tell this to them – but these are also usually the same people who don’t put forth too much effort into dating or socializing to begin with. For instance, just last week, a lady was cutting my hair at Floyd’s barbershop when I brought up the fact that I lived here in Flower Mound. She immediately started talking about how boring Flower Mound was, and that there was nothing really to do here except dine and drink in this lame suburban town.
But much to her surprise, I immediately made it clear that I didn’t agree with anything she’d told me (she also probably didn’t realize that I run Flower Mound Famous). Instead of agreeing with her like most people would have, I calmly explained that you just have to get really fun and creative when it comes to dating and going out in Flower Mound. I mean, isn’t that what makes dating fun anyway?
When you can’t rely on going to shows or certain venues for entertainment, you have to force yourself to do stuff that you wouldn’t normally do otherwise. You instead have to rely on edgy conversation, spontaneity, adventure, excitement and many other crazy things that you might not experience if you live in Uptown – where I can say that dating truly is much more about dining and drinking than in Flower Mound.
Side note: Uptown Dallas is awesome, but the main takeaway here is that Flower Mound can be too.
It’s mainly up to you to make dating in Flower Mound just an average experience, or too much fun to handle. The choice is completely yours.
And the good news is that I’m going to go ahead and give you Your Guide to Dating in Flower Mound, Texas so that you’ll be prepared with a fool-proof system for dating in Flower Mound. This small city truly has so much more potential than most will ever give it credit for. Many of my fellow Mounders probably don’t stop to consciously think about just how lucky we really are. In case this sounds like you, this article is your big shot at redemption.
This is your guide to dating in Flower Mound. Guy or girl – your gender doesn’t matter here. This will work for just about anyone. Oh, and no dinner or drinks are needed (although bringing along a good bottle of red wine will definitely help for those who are 21+).
Here we go (finally). These are the steps that will take you from being a “Flower Mound is boring” kind of person to more like an “I love this place” guy or girl.
Dating in Flower Mound Tip #1.) Change your Mindset About Dating in Flower Mound
While this might sound like an underwhelming first step, it’s by far the most important step of this guide. This is really important because like I briefly mentioned above – you’ll definitely need to know that dating in Flower Mound requires a lot of creativity.
I say this because while you COULD *easily* drive out to Dallas or Grapevine or any other awesome neighboring city for a date, you’ll more often than not want to keep things local. Logistics are usually pretty key when dating, and most people don’t want to drive for thirty minutes one-way, then spend another thirty minutes driving back on a night out.
So to date in Flower Mound, just understand that you’re going to need to take your game to the next level (guy or girl, again this doesn’t matter). How awesome can you be without having to rely on outside entertainment to have fun with your date? Do you have any (multiple) great stories to share? Are you really charismatic, interesting or pretty cool in a unique way? If you aren’t, then that’s completely okay. I’m not really that cool at all. I just make sure to try and have as much fun as possible whenever I’m taking someone out on a date in Flower Mound. This is absolutely necessary, because you’ll go a little bit crazy if you can’t self-entertain here.
Side note: Self-entertaining or being able to self-amuse is one of the key takeaways of dating in Flower Mound. This is huge, so make sure to remember this on your next night out.
So step 1 is definitely more of a mental construct that you’ll want to soak in before deciding to go on a date in Flower Mound. Just know that your overall goal is to have as much fun as possible on your date out in Flower Mound *regardless of your environment*. It doesn’t matter if you’re literally going to sit on a bench in the park with your date and talk about the different species of ducks swimming in the pond. I want you to prepare to get so wild, self-amused and energetic on your night out in Flower Mound that you actually start to convince yourself that you’re the most fun guy/girl in all of Dallas.
This is how you prepare for a date in Flower Mound. You don’t even need a real plan to begin with. Just the right mindset is all that’s needed.
Another quick side note: If you need help finding a date in Flower Mound, then I will write an article on that topic shortly. Finding a date in Flower Mound is extremely easy. It actually takes much less effort and energy to find a date in Flower Mound than it takes to go on one. You can easily find your next date at Lifetime Fitness, Whole Foods, a dance/salsa class, in your neighborhood, while running errands etc. It’s a simple process, as long as you’re okay with facing some occasionally harsh rejection (if you’re a guy).
If you’re more interested in online dating than in-person dating – then I recommend using Match.com for the best results in Flower Mound. OkCupid is another solid website to use for the greater Dallas area as a whole (more oriented towards the inner city areas). Most other dating websites will probably just be a waste of your time.
Dating in Flower Mound Tip #2.) Never Plan. Just Do.
“What do you mean by this? This is crazy!” is what most of you are probably thinking right now. Mainstream websites usually explain that it’s extremely important to have a set plan in place for your date, so that your evening goes as smoothly as possible. You’ve probably always been told by others to make an early reservation for dinner, and to buy your movie tickets well in advance.
But I’m going to tell you the complete opposite, because this is Flower Mound, and you don’t really require a
party killer plan unless you’re meeting with friends for a pre-game/pre-party.
In Flower Mound, your traditional dating options are going to be restricted, so I’m going to suggest that you flip the script a little bit here and do the complete opposite of what you’ve been told in the past…
Seriously – prepare to do the opposite.
For your date in Flower Mound, to make things *not* boring, you’re going to have to prepare to spice things up a little bit. I want you to stream a movie outdoors, while you and your date are hot tubbing/swimming. Break out a bottle of champagne if you must, but I’m telling you, doing something like this is going to completely shatter your date’s reality if they’ve been dating in the Flower Mound market for too long. Going against the norm here is what will truly make some some amazing memories happen.
Go skinny dipping in your pool if you want, or even in Lake Lewisville – if you need more of a “wild” outing for an adventurous partner.
You could even simply set up a huge outdoor blanket and lay out in your backyard with some light food and drinks. Talk about life. Get fun and physical. Make your date be vulnerable with you. Hear their real story. Record yourselves on video. Upload it to YouTube and laugh about it later.
Do you guys get where I’m going with this?
Dating in Flower Mound is more about your ability to create fun rather then relying on external events.
Dating in Flower Mound builds character!
Dating in Flower Mound Tip #3.) Find your special person, or keep dating and enjoy being single
Let’s face reality here. Many of us in the Flower Mound dating market are looking for an attractive, life-loving and reliable partner to build a great relationship with. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. I recommend that you go on as many dates throughout Dallas as possible until you find whoever is right for you in your current stage of life.
You’re probably going to have to date many men or women until you find that awesome person who’s just right for you. Yeah, that sounds like cliche advice, but I’ve found it to be pretty true. I mean, who you decide to spend the majority of your time with needs to be an extremely important decision. And it’s a long and occasionally tricky process to date in DFW in order to find that special person, but it can definitely be an enjoyable experience as well. As long as you keep your Tinder dates to a minimum (or not) then most of your dates will probably go fairly well and lead to some great memories – regardless of if you decide to keep in touch with your dates or not.
However – there’s another trend that’s been emerging in Flower Mound as of late. It’s the trend of being single/divorced and remaining completely okay with that. I think that this is a powerful stance to take if you’re great with being independent. Being single and having fun is another great option that I’ve been entertaining recently. It’s a nice feeling to be free to do whatever you want at anytime that you choose.
If this is you, then I suggest that you enjoy dating in Flower Mound to the fullest. Take advantage of being able to date as many awesome people of the DFW area as you want. There are so many single people here that your options for dating are completely unlimited. Blondes, brunettes, toned, tanned, average size, thick, strong, light – whatever your individual preference – Flower Mound (or at least Dallas) has it! That’s what I love about this area. So. Many. Options!
So get on Match.com in case you haven’t already signed up, and you can begin to browse through many of the attractive local singles of Flower Mound right away. Message someone who you like and just say hi. See what it leads to. The most important thing to do is to start planting seeds right away. Or, if you prefer to date in person, then smile at someone attractive next time you’re out shopping. I guarantee you’ll get a smile back (most of the time), and an opportunity to chat.
I hope that this guide has helped you with dating in the greatest suburb of DFW. If you can implement some of this advice in this article, I guarantee that you’ll literally shock your next date by NOT mentioning how boring Flower Mound is, and instead creating a fun environment for the both of you. By creating the fun wherever you go, you’ll actually become even more attractive to other people in your dating AND professional life. Being known as the “fun” girl or guy is definitely a beneficial reputation to hold in Flower Mound.
