If the season is fall and you don't go apple picking with your boyfriend, are you even in a relationship? Some might argue no, and I would probably agree with them. Now that the weather is finally showing signs of fall, couples everywhere are throwing on some flannel and embarking on a journey to the nearest orchard to pick some sweet, sweet apples. We all know that ladies love apple picking, whether for the Instagram or the genuine love of apple pie (but mostly the Instagram). But do guys actually like apple picking dates? More importantly, are they onto the fact that the purpose of an apple picking date is not to pick apples, but to take a perfectly cozy and rustic fall picture?
I decided to ask some guys how they really feel about going apple picking with their girlfriends. Do they go just to make her happy, or do they genuinely enjoy it? Here's what they said.
This guy absolutely freakin' loves it.
— John, 29
This guy thinks social media ruined it.

This guy would have to check his feelings first.

Naturally, I had to ask my boyfriend how he felt about apple picking dates. His response? "I've actually never been apple picking."
Ummm, what? Can someone grab me a flannel and a Valencia filter ASAP? Thanks.
