Ladies, you can tell a lot about a man, and his intentions toward you, based on the date he plans. Thatís according to Bill Nichols, co-founder of the website So, here are the top date places decoded - so youíll know whether a guy thinks youíre long term material or not:

  • Coffee shop! Experts say if a guy invites you for coffee, know that heís interested in finding out more about you, because thereís no hiding behind drinks or the 2-hour distraction of a movie. This guy is ready for some one on one Ė sober Ė conversation. It also indicates a guy who wants to find out quickly whether you two click. If you do, odds are, heíll pursue a relationship with you.

  • What about his neighborhood bar? It means he wants to be comfortable in his own environment. But it also means heís not willing to get out of his comfort zone for you. So, he may be interested in a relationship Ė but only if it can fit into his life on his terms.
  • The batting cages. When a guy suggests doing any type of activity, like batting practice or mini-golf, that shows he wants a woman who he can share experiences with. It also means heís looking for someone he can be friends with, above all.
  • An elegant restaurant. Experts say a fancy meal means one of two things. He either expects you to be romantic from the get-go - since he flashed cash for a nice evening - or heís seriously into you, and wants to wine and dine you into a relationship.
  • Beware if he invites you to a party! Experts say it could go either way. He either feels comfortable enough about you to show you off to his friends, or heís just being casual and figures if you donít hit it off at the party, then it wonít be as awkward because thereíll be lots of other people there to talk with.
