Winning Ideas For Your First Date

Aug 18, 2007
Most men conjure up grandiose first date plans that are a sure-fire way to floor their dream dates. While the super-rich may actually be able to fly their date around three continents in a day in a privately-chartered plane, other mere mortals just have to keep their feet firmly grounded and come up with other creative first date ideas that are equally exciting.

Fly High; Dive Low

Planning a day at the beach just sunbathing is pass. How about planning a day at the beach with an extra twist? Arrange to go parasailing and marvel at the bird's eye view of what lays beneath. Or, go scuba diving and get another completely different view of what lays beneath. If you both love the water but would rather stay above it, hire a yacht and go out at sea to get a closer look at dolphins frolicking in the water. All are equally exhilarating, unique and unforgettable.

Life is an adventure

Forget about booking a table at a restaurant for dinner; everybody does that! If adventure is something both of you like, arrange to have dinner around a campfire in the mountains. Arrange to spend the day or a couple of days, mountain biking, trekking and rock climbing and give new meaning to the words 'Love and fresh air'. With nothing and no one to disturb the two of you, this is the perfect opportunity to get to know each other well.

Starry, starry nights

Both of you as passionate about the stars as you are about each other? What better way to spend your first date than star watching. You can take some time off to gaze into each other's eyes as well. You could go to the planetarium and get a view of the different constellations from a telescope, or you could set up a telescope as well as a midnight picnic right in your backyard or garden.

How to dress on your date

How you dress on your date depends on where you've planned to go. A day at the beach calls for nothing more than an itsy-bitsy bikini to reveal your hour-glass figure. Whereas a day out trekking or mountain climbing calls for more rugged clothes that reveal nothing, except your adventurous spirit.

However, if your handsome hunk has organized a night out at the opera with a table booked at an elegant restaurant for dinner, you'll need something far more glamorous than either a bikini or rugged wear.

Now's the time to wear that gown you've bought and never worn, get those stilettos out of their box and wear those solitaire earrings and diamante necklace that were handed down to you by your grandmother. Do a dress rehearsal a few days prior to your date ' check that the gown fits perfectly, make sure the jewelry you choose to wear goes well with the gown. If you have the time and patience, put on your make up and check out the entire effect. Don't wait for the last minute to find out the shoes are too high or too low for the gown or your necklace does nothing to enhance the neckline of your gown.

A good hair style can make or break the entire ensemble. Do up your hair during your dress rehearsal and see how it looks. If you have time make an appointment and get your hair professionally styled by your regular hair-stylist. This is definitely not the right time to try out a radically new look. Go with something classy and sophisticated and preferably something you've tried before and know looks good on you. If you want different, get your hair highlighted for a dramatic effect or get it low-lighted for a sexy look. If going to the salon is out for the question for any reason, just dabbing on some leave-in conditioner or giving your hair a deep-conditioning treatment will leave it looking sleep and perfectly coiffed in a matter of minutes.

Less is more as far as make-up is concerned. You want to look sexy, glamorous and sophisticated, not garish and over made-up. Again, sticking to the tried and tested is far better than experimenting with new make-up ideas.
