If you’ve been reading dating advice for women articles, and still don’t know where to go on the first date, then this one is for you. Deciding where to go on your first date can be tricky because you don’t know much about your date’s preference in entertainment or food.
Dinner and a movie is such a cliché when it comes to first dates. Just think about it, how can you really get to know each other if you’re sitting in a theater? Moreover, most movies are romantic comedies or filled with high-speed chases, which could or could not be conducive to creating a memorable evening. So why chance it?
Likewise it’s probably not a good idea to take your date to your parent’s house. Involving family at an early stage could be too pushy. Men like to keep their business to themselves in the first stages of dating. If you feel that he will be a keeper, there’s no need to rush a meeting with the parents. This should happen naturally when the time is right.
Furthermore, it’s probably best if you avoid sleazy bars. Remember that the first date is the opportunity to show him a little of your personality. If you like bars, be sure to go to one that offers a classy atmosphere and perhaps nice jazz music. Be clear of bars and/or clubs that have lots of drunk men and promiscuous women lurking; you date may get the wrong idea about you and what you’re looking for.
On the brighter side, try to do things that may seem more casual. Instead of starting out with dinner, try doing coffee at Starbucks, or perhaps a nice lunch. This way, you’ll be more alert and you will most likely find out more about your dated. If lunch goes well, you can then plan for a romantic evening at a good restaurant or perhaps even enjoy an event together.
Begin with a simple lunch or coffee date. You want to keep the date casual so suggesting meeting up for lunch or coffee can be a good start. This way, if the date didn’t go so well, you can end the date there. But if you enjoy each other company, you have the rest of the day to spend getting to know each other better.
Other than dinner, try arranging time for a tour at a museum, or if your guy likes sports, you can catch a professional game near by. When all else fails remember to enjoy an outing that you have in common. Too much of you and your likes could possibly bore him. Find out about him and then do things that fit both interests. The idea is to have fun and enjoy each other.
