The only thing that is really talked about here is, cars, money, and women. So why not include those highlights here.

Why not make the thread a little interesting. Clearly you don't need to know all my detailed conversations with her and a run down on her personality, lifestyle, etc. I just need a request for a nice restaurant.
Dude, your asking a internet car forum for dating advice...

Sounds to me like your trying to crawl in with a class of people you don't belong with for all the wrong reasons. She'll realize that.

Let hope for your sake you not driving a 10 year old e46... she might trade you in for a dude with a Ferrari!

This.....



But if what you say is true about her family...that list of cars equals a ridiculous lifestyle....and if your not in that circle/have that kinda cash whatever you do to try to impress her might seem extravagant to you....buts its probably McDonalds to her.


I would do the complete opposite of what your trying to do. I'd cook her dinner/picnic and head to like Malibu,PV..hell even Griffith park . something simple and honest, because im sure shes had guys whos familys are also in that class throw all types of cash at her before. Thats not impressive.......

good luck

Any of you guys have any recommendations for really nice restaurants in the area? Nice views and all! I have to impress this girl! Her family being very wealthy also is a reason why I need everything to go perfect. I need to get on the good side of her father also, owns a 2 Ferrari's, R8, Rolce, Maybach, and whatever else I don't know about.



I will try my best post pics of girl for proof tomorrow night if everything goes well and only if I can make it seem as if I am not literally taking a picture of her. lol.
Are you wealthy? Your swag needs work. If this girl is a gold digging whore, she might be impressed on your fancy first date, but then you will have to keep up the golden spoon feeding. Plan a fun date. Burgers, shakes, a carnival, whatever. You are not going to impress a girl with a father like that, so don't try.

If you want nothing more than to smash her, disregard the above and invest in those fancy dinners. If you actually want to date her, don't do it. If she is a normal girl, she would be far more impressed that you took the time to plan a fun evening of go carting, hot dogs, and disney land than being like every other buttmunch that took her out to the hottest place in town.

Honestly... I think you guys are definitely mis-reading what I originally was looking for. I just wanted some suggestions for some nice restaurants and thats about it! I didn't ask for any dating advice, how to talk to her, what to say or anything of that nature on here. That is not a problem for me or I wouldn't even be going out with the girl in the first place!

Secondly, I guess people forget on here what sarcasm is and that we are e46OT, so like I said before I just brought up the cars and her lifestyle for the hell of it. I am not even looking at impressing her dad really, everyone must of disregarded the winky face I had there as well..

I just wanted location ideas for a restaurant and thats about it. Some guys made some good suggestions so I appreciate that!

First statements are the raw truth. Follow-up statements are usually to deny the obvious.

Pre-teens in high school have nicer cars than that and you're trying to impress lil Miss Venessa Bryant...?

You better at least invest in something Italian!

This.

Stay in your comfort zone. Pick a place low key and relaxed. If she is from a wealthy family she will not be impressed by an expensive joint.
