Yes, we've come up with another checklist of things you need to know if you're going to go on a date with a Donny type.
Our original article caused a massive stir - so here's 7 more reasons you might want to consider before taking to the Doncaster dating scene. And remember, its just for fun...
1. The way to their hearts is through their stomachs
They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Well, that’s true for men, women and everyone in between here in Donny. When you start seeing someone here, you’d better learn to cook sharpish. Present them with a hearty, homecooked dish (preferably with chips, mushy peas and gravy), and you’ll be in their good books for life.
2. You must learn how to make Yorkshire puddings...
Did we mention that Donny folk love Yorkies? Well, they do. If you can’t make these things as fluffy and tasty as possible, you might as well not bother. When you start dating someone from Doncaster, they will expect you to know how to make these from scratch. Remember, you’re competing with their mum – who was probably the master of making the perfect pud.

3. … preferably seven days a week
And, don’t make the mistake of thinking that these things are just a Sunday tradition. As if! If Yorkshire people could eat them every day of the week, they would.
4. They'll take you to 'old man' pubs
If you’re accustomed to being taken to high-class restaurants every night of the week, you might need to alter your expectations. When a Doncastrian takes you out on a date, you’re most likely to end up at an old man pub. Don’t be disheartened! They have probably spend ages fretting over which one serves the best craft beers and has the tastiest snacks to boot.
5. And, ordering a cocktail will ruin your chances of getting a second date
Make no mistakes – ordering a drink is the ultimate test of northerness. If you want to make the right impression, you need to avoid tacky drinks. That includes anything that’s fruit flavoured or brightly coloured. If you order a glass of red, it won’t do your image any harm, but neither will it do you any favours. If you really want to make the right impression, though, you need to order a pint of local ale. In a tankard.
6. You need to know how to make a good brew
The art of tea making is a serious thing. When you date a northern lad or lass, you’ll learn that. If you’ve been doing it wrong for the last however many years, they’ll call you on it. First, you need to start with the right brand – Yorkshire Tea, obviously. Next, add boiling hot water to it. Wait. Wait. Wait some more. There’s simply no rushing this very important process. Now, squeeze the bag. Add a little milk – no sugar.
7. They’re hardy as hell!
If there’s one thing you need to know about Donny folk, it’s this – they’re hardy. You won’t find any soft, southern traits in these people. These people don’t take nonsense. They don’t shy away from hard work. They will stick up for the people around them. In short, they are the most lovable people you’ll ever meet.
