Fantastic Ideas For A First Date

Sep 5, 2008
Whether youave met your date on an online dating service or another source, itas important to choose a great place for the first date. You want to make sure that you show your date that you want to have a good time, but also want to make sure that theyare comfortable. The first date should not be somewhere really secluded, but not so crowded that you donat have an opportunity to get to know each other.

If you met your date on a dating site, you want to make sure of two things. The first is that you make sure that your dating destination makes you feel comfortable. The second thing of course is that your date should feel comfortable. If you donat know the person very well, you may want to have the date during the day. If youare a man dating a woman, youall want to put her at ease. If youare a woman dating a man, a date during daylight hours will help put you at ease.

Some great ideas on where to go on a first date can include a restaurant and often does. However, I would suggest that there be more to the date than eating. If the weatheras nice and itas the right time of year, you may want to do something outside like miniature golf. You can also go to a carnival if itas that time of year and thereas one relatively close.

As mentioned earlier, be sure that the restaurant you choose is not an overly crowed sea of people that must be navigated through, and make certain that the place is not desolate. A good dating environment is a lively one that has places where you can get to know one another in addition to the security of having others around.

After your great dinner you've decided that the movies would be an excellent compliment to your date. Some key things to remember in picking a movie, is that it should be one that is neutral to both of you. Try not to go to a horror movie that is too gory, or an R-rated movie that is too sexually suggestive. Pick something with humor in it, so that it is light-hearted and leaves you both feeling happy and satisfied.

Another thing to consider is to make time for conversation on the first date. You may want to consider as part of the date going for a walk. This could be in a mall or outside in a park. If you go to a town or city, you can take a walk while going into shops and this will give you time to make conversation.

Now that youave decided on location, youall want to think about being romantic. On a first date you should be romantic, but not so much that you run off your date before you get a chance to take him or her out. Try bringing a bouquet of flowers or box of chocolates. Make it simple and innocent. Remember, youare going for comfort, and one sure fire way to make someone uncomfortable on a first date is to be suggestive or spend lots of money on pretentious gifts that seem to be saying that their affection is for sale. Always remember that your actions on your first date should be somewhat tame.

No matter your gender, make sure that your date feels special. You shouldn't bring up past relationships, or in fact bring up any sort of negativity. Your conversations should stay positive and light hearted, leave the heavy stuff until you've known each other longer. And make sure the place that you decide to go to is neutral and holds no past meaning for either you or your date. Make it special, and sweet. Beside you invited this person out because you liked them and wanted to get to know them better so make it fun and find a connection. A successful first date will always lead to a second.
