Enjoy these first date ideas, and tell me if you plan on giving them a try!
Go out for dinner, then go for a walk and look at the stars.
It's romantic, and gives you plenty of time to talk.
See a movie, then get coffee and discuss it.
Show off your intellectual side a little. Plus, it sidesteps the usual pitfall of seeing a movie with your date – not having any time to talk to each other.
Go to a coffeehouse for some live music, then visit a used bookshop.
This is for all the hipsters out there (@paulisaverage). Enjoy some acoustic strumming and then go hunt for cool old books (or vintage records!) together.
Go for a short hike, and then at the end, have a picnic lunch.
If you and your date are outdoorsy folk, this is perfect. The little burst of endorphins and gorgeous natural scenery will definitely put you in the romantic mood.
Meet for drinks, then go see a play or musical together.
It's always fun to see a show – it's like a real people movie! You can get a few drinks beforehand so it's even more fun ;)
And there you have it! Five first date ideas that could even turn out to be spectacular if you share them with the right person. Whaddya think, @paulisaverage? ;)
Remember, first dates are all about two things: 1) having fun and 2) getting to know your date. So try to accomplish both these things as best you can, while never getting too stressed about the planning. Relax, be yourself, and smile!
Peace out girl scouts!
