Ways to Decide What to Do For a Girl’s Night Out
With all of the options available, how do you and your friends decide what to do? Well, there are multiple ways to help you make your decision.
Pick From a Hat
First, get the girls together. Have everyone write down suggestions for what you should do that night on a piece of paper and throw all of the ideas into a hat. Keep the pieces of paper a uniform size to prevent any accusations of cheating. The person who is hosting the night should be the person to select from the hat.
Picking from a hat is a popular option for a lot of reasons. It is a fair way to decide. You can also put popular possibilities into the hat multiple times. Make sure that everyone will play along with whatever option is selected.
Look to the Stars!
Many people believe that astrology can tell us about our futures. Well, your horoscope may even be able to help you decide what to do on your night out! Use your horoscope to plan your night around. Have everyone read their horoscope to see if it can lead you in the right direction. The stars may suggest something lowkey. They may suggest something exciting and fun. Alternatively, they might recommend taking time to bond with your girlfriends and develop relationships. Perhaps you should invite someone you don’t typically include on your outings!
Let One Person Decide
Sometimes, it’s easiest to let one person making the decisions for the night. This is especially effective if it’s someone’s birthday or bachelorette party. If you have a regular group of friends that you go out with, you can also take turns. Rotate who gets to pick the event for the evening. Whoever is in charge of the night should consider everyone else’s preferences to be kind. It’s probably not a good idea to go out drinking if one person is pregnant and can’t drink.
Let’s go back to the schoolyard and be democratic throughout the process. List a couple of options and let the group decide. You can always do anonymous voting if you think that’s necessary, but it might be easiest to have people raise their hands.
Shoot at a Dartboard
Put a number of your favorite ideas on a dartboard and take turns throwing darts at the different suggestions. Whatever option gets the most hits will prevail! This makes the whole experience super fun, too. If it’s someone’s special day, they should be the only one who throws the darts.
Go to a Psychic
A girl’s night is supposed to be fun. Start it in a fun way by going to a psychic or tarot card reader to decide what you and your friends will do for the rest of your night. You don’t have to believe in it for it to be a fun way for you to decide.
Let a 3rd Party Decide
If you and your friends can’t agree on what restaurant to go to or what show to see, have a third party to help you make your decision. Ask your husband to intervene or even one of your children. They may even come up with some creative ideas that you never expected.
Technology has made planning events much easier. Send out a large group text to everyone involved and communicate. Ask questions and offer suggestions at first to see what your friends think. Everyone will be able to voice their opinion and see the plans as they play out. No need for a lot of back and forth between different people!
As we grow up and obtain more responsibilities, fun can become a thing of a past. You may even lose touch with friends that you once loved. You and your friends deserve some time to relax and catch up, and that’s what a girl’s night is all about!
Girl’s Night is supposed to be a fun experience; that includes the selection process. Talk to your friends about how you want to make the decision and go from there. And don’t forget to take plenty of pictures to save the memories. And remember, no matter what you choose to do for your adventure, everything is better with a limo!
