6 Things You Must Know About Dating Someone From Indianapolis
If you find yourself new to the area, welcome! Indianapolis is a wonderful city full of fantastic food, art, and culture. If you’re on the dating scene and get involved with an Indianapolis native, well, there are a few things you should know to prepare yourself for your new relationship. Here are six things you must know about dating someone from Indy.
1. If you’re dating someone from Indy, you will end up at the Indy 500.
If there's one event that signifies the beginning of summer in Indianapolis, it's the long-standing IndyCar race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. If you're dating someone from our city, chances are that you'll end up there at some point.
2. If you’re dating someone from Indy, get ready to spend some times in breweries.
We love our beer in Indianapolis, so don't be surprised if many of your evening or weekend excursions involve pit stops at some of the city's best breweries.
3. If you’re dating someone from Indy, you will be asked to try a pork tenderloin.
The pork tenderloin is a food staple of Indiana and some of the best versions of it are right here in Indianapolis. If you've never had this delicious, fried meal, you will.
NOTE: One of the best versions is at a spot called The Rusty Bucket.
4. If you’re dating someone from Indy, you’ll need to embrace college basketball.
Whether your significant other calls IU's Assembly Hall, Butler's Hinkle Fieldhouse, or Purdue's Mackey Arena "home," there's no doubt that you'll hear a lot about college basketball. We're a basketball town, one that's home to the NCAA Hall of Champions.
5. If you’re dating someone from Indy, you’re going to spend some time outdoors.
Indianapolis has more than 100 parks within city limits. These include state parks like White River and Fort Harrison, as well as local favorites such as Eagle Creek and Holliday Park. Whether your significant other loves hiking, biking, fishing, or swimming, be prepared to spend a bunch of time outdoors.
6. If you’re dating someone from Indy, be prepared to hate the New England Patriots.
This can't be stressed enough: we can't stand the New England Patriots. You can be a fan of any other NFL team, even if it's not the Colts, but you can't date someone from Indianapolis and be a Patriots fan. It won't work.
We hope this helped you prepare for dating someone from our fine city. Indy residents, are there any other things people should know about dating one of us? Let us know in the comments below!
