14 Things You Must Know About Dating Someone From Kansas
Can I let you in on a little secret? Dating someone from Kansas is pretty much the best! Kansans are polite mid-westerners who know how to work hard, play hard, and just have a good time! What else do you need to know about dating someone from Kansas? Well…
1.) You shouldn't expect a laugh when you make a "Wizard of Oz" joke.
If you make an out-of-state "I don't think we're in Kansas anymore" joke, you're not getting a laugh.
2.) If our team loses, plans can change.
My boyfriend (now husband) once canceled our plans because KU lost to Mizzou and he needed time to process/grieve.
3.) Heading to the shooting range constitutes as a perfect first date...
4.) ...as does eating the best BBQ in the world...
Think BBQ is a taboo first date food? You're SO wrong.
5.) ... going out to have drinks and watch the Royals game.
6.) Eat whatever you want; we won't judge.
On our first date, my husband and I had cheese fries and milkshakes from Bogey's. #heaven
7.) You will always be kept safe under our watch.
...even when we're storm chasing.
8.) We know how to work hard...
9.) ...play hard...
10.) ...make you smile whenever you're sad...
11.) ...and keep the flame alive.
12.) We love our country!
13.) We are the poster child for the word "loyalty."
Even when our beloved Chiefs couldn't win a game, we still stuck by them.
14.) Lastly (but certainly not least), Kansans are the nicest people you will ever meet.
Not to mention extremely laid back and humble!
