15 Things You Should Know About Dating a California Girl

Yes, I listened to "California Gurls" while writing this. Here are 15 things you need to know about dating a California girl.

1. She's not necessarily from Southern California. 

Though a lot of us wish we were.

2. She's pretty into the beach. 

But she doesn't live on it.

3. LA is our NY. 

The West Coast's Big Apple.

4. If she says she's from the Bay, that doesn't always mean San Francisco. 

Honorable mentions to Walnut Creek, Berkeley and Oakland.

5. Her ideal date is probably going to In-N-Out. 

It doesn't need to be fancy.

6. She's there to remind you that there's California north of San Francisco. 

There are five more hours until the Oregon border.

7. There's a good chance she's really into yoga. 

Bonus points if it's on the beach!

8. "California Gurls" is her personal anthem. 

Katy made it just for the Cali gurls.

9. She'll complain about weather under 70 degrees.

Because high 70s is just perfect.

10. Going to Disneyland is a big deal. 

A date at Disneyland means things are getting serious.

11. She's probably spent large portions of summer in Lake Tahoe. 

And probably part of winter, too.

12. She's been to Coachella…

…or really wants to go.

13. Summer is her favorite season. 

That's a given.

14. She's planning her next birthday in Vegas. 

Or maybe she spent her 21st there.

15. And most importantly, you can take the girl out of California…

…but you can't take California out of the girl.
