I have a term for things like this: A "courtesy war". In a courtesy war, two people are both trying to be nice to each other. It sounds like you and your friend have gotten yourselves stuck in a courtesy war- so the best solution is to have fun with it! When I find myself in a courtesy war with my friend, I usually have to tell her "I am doing this nice thing for you, and there's nothing you can do to stop me." You can do the same. It sounds to me like they really just feel awkward about being the one choosing what to do, and you have to make it abundantly clear that it would make you happy if they chose what to do.Go ahead, have some fun! I love that you've got such an amazing duo going, and it'd be a shame if you guys didn't have the best time possible.
