You don't have to get dressed up. You probably won't need reservations. There won't be10 other guys/girls that youre worried are cooler/prettier/more stylish/more handsome than you. In other words, you can relax.

2. You’re Both Already Excited

I don't what it is, but the novelty of eating a meal intended for the morning at night makes people insane with glee. And it's not the kind of excitement that sets you up for disappointment either, because...

3. It’s Always Good

Sometimes it's better than others, of course, but even the grossest, greasiest white-toast-only, no-hot-sauce-having diner is still pretty good.

4. It’s Quirky, But Not Annoyingly So

Breakfast for dinner is just offbeat enough to satisfy your twee longings, but it's not like you're dressing up in gingham and suspenders and having a picnic in a graveyard or something.

5. It’s Cheap

Nine times out of 10, breakfast is going to be softer on your wallet than dinner.

6. It’s a Very Subtle Sexual Innuendo

Heh. You're having breakfast together. Like, heh, you know. The morning after. *BLUSH*

7. It’s Easy to Share

Eating off each other's plates is the universal sign for "It's going well." Your date can't decide between sweet and savory? Suggest getting both and going splitsies.

8. Coffee is Good for Talking

If you're already having breakfast for dinner, you might as well go whole hog and have coffee at night, too. A few cups of joe can actually serve as a better social lubricant on a date than alcohol. Many a four-hour deep, passionate conversation about what's most important in life has been caffeine-fueled, but accidentally telling someone how attractive you find their ears and then throwing up on your shoes is pretty much always booze's domain.

9. You Can Order Ridiculous Things

You can order ridiculous things that you'd never actually eat for breakfast. Getting food on your face is not attractive. Unless the food is whipped cream from a huge stack of chocolate chip pancakes with sliced bananas and chocolate sauce drizzled all over it. Then it's adorable.

10. It's Acceptable to Drink a Milkshake
