11 Things You Need To Know When Dating Someone From Milwaukee
So, you’re dating a Milwaukeean? Congratulations! People from Milwaukee are some of the most amazing people you’ll ever meet, but first, there are a few things you should know. Milwaukeeans are a rare breed, and whether it be habits, interests, or tastes, it’s best that you know what you’re getting into. We’re here to prepare you with eleven things you must keep in mind while dating someone from Milwaukee.
1. Your date will likely be tougher than you.
Set your ego aside, because
Milwaukeeans were made to be tough
. Whether it's shoveling snow for hours, or merely surviving the extreme conditions, we'll always make it through. On the plus side, we’ll be able to take anything you life throws at us.
2. Wherever you go, you’re sure to bump into someone we know.
Milwaukee is often called "Smallwaukee," and for good reason. Even though it’s a big city, it’s just small enough so that everyone still seems to knows each other. That also means your partner likely knows someone who can help with any problem you may have in MKE!
3. We have some strange habits.
Your Milwaukeean date will undoubtedly be
known to do some strange things
. Don’t be surprised when we make sure their cheese squeaks or ask where the "bubbler" is.
4. We might be late...
Our city is constantly under construction. With closed roads, snow plows, and game day traffic, it can be a battle to get anywhere around time. Despite our best efforts, you should just expect a little delay.
5. We like the finer things in life because Milwaukee is home to the finest things.
We might be the most down-to-earth people you’ve ever met, but we have good taste! With so many amazing coffee roasters, independent businesses, and cuisine to die for, your date is used to the best of the best. If we've picked you, you must be pretty fine too!
6. We’ll drink you under the table— any time, any day.
It’s not a drinking problem, it’s just that there is no place in the world that loves beer more than Brew City. It’s not merely a Friday night event; it’s a way of life. Your Milwaukeean date will go out with you any night of the week, and not only will they keep up, they’ll likely out-drink you entirely. Pro tip: they probably prefer PBR.
7. We’re more cultured than you might expect.
Milwaukee is one of the most diverse cities in the country. Each part embraces a different culture, and it’s likely that your date went to a school that specialized in a foreign language. Milwaukeeans are some of the most open minded people around, and we love to show off the various cultures that make Milwaukee our home.
8. We’re fit and active.
Despite being located in the Midwest, which can be stereotyped for unhealthy habits, Milwaukeeans are very active and fit. You'll often catch us biking rather than driving, and we’ll always prefer an activity that involves getting up and moving rather than sitting around!
9. We might be from the city, but our heart is in nature.
It can be hard to find green space in most concrete jungles, but not in Milwaukee! We have over 150 parks, and growing up around so much nature has given Milwaukeeans everywhere a bit of wanderlust. Hiking will always be an A+ date choice.
10. You’ll need to keep up with our celebrations.
Living in Milwaukee gives a whole new definition to the term "celebrate." We’re known as the "City of Festivals," so there’s always an event going on around here. Not only that, but the long winters we endure have taught us to truly enjoy summer. We naturally celebrate everything. Hopefully you can keep up!
11. We’re the nicest person you’ll ever date.
At the end of the day, a Milwaukeean will always be true to themselves, and this means being genuinely nice and charming. You can't find real Midwestern charm like you'll find in a Milwaukeean, and they are hands down the best people to fall for!
If you embrace the things that your Milwaukeean partner so wonderfully unique, this will be one relationship that’s made to last! What would you tell someone who is dating someone from Milwaukee? Let us know in the comments!
