I’d like to think I know a thing or two about the art of the first encounter. A first date should be casual, but not so spontaneous that it seems carelessly unplanned. And a first date should allow partners to chat and get to know one another. Most importantly, with greater risk comes greater reward. The more you’re able to wow a woman on a first date, the stronger your bond with her will be. Or, you can also opt to just try dating sites and you’ll know why dating sites are the future of dating.
Anyway, here are the best first date ideas:
- Stroll in the park
Don’t let the name deceive you. In reality, this date is no simple “walk in the park.” Only take a woman to the park if you are particularly skilled at sniffing out fun in the most mundane of environments. Sure, you can feed the ducks, hop on a swing set, or people watch but if you’re willing to drop a couple of bucks on some hot dogs, pretzels, or ice cream, you can still pull off a cost-conscious rendezvous without looking like a cheap. And any place you take your lady following a successful first date at the park will automatically be an impressive upgrade.
For a successful museum date, you’ve got to know which exhibitions are worth spending time at without pretentiously pontificating when passing by each one. You should also be familiar with your date’s general interests before committing to a museum date, which isn’t easy to do when you’ve never gone out with the person before. However, knowing even a simple fact or two about a brainy, cultured lady can be extremely helpful. Got a date with a physics major? Try a science museum! Seeing a musician or painter? An art museum could be bliss! I love bringing my dates in museum. You should try it too!
- Theme Park / Carnival
Fairs, festivals, and amusement parks can be wonderlands for a couple of crazy kids about to fall in love on a first date. But they are also obstacle courses of filled with roadblocks to romance, if not navigated properly. Daters face an endless barrage of fried food, wobbly rides, and startling surprises inciting attendees to vomit around every corner. If you can nail the sequence of events, and steer her towards the slower moving rides, you’ll ensure that she’ll be blinded by love, not nausea.
Meeting for coffee in the morning or afternoon with a woman provides very little risk. It’s an inexpensive outing, and fewer variables make this date less likely to end in utter disaster. Plus, either of you can escape quite easily if things go awry. Admittedly, it does take a bit of skill to pull off any daytime date, which often sets more of a “friendly” tone than a romantic one. For this reason, it’s important to select a venue with a date-appropriate vibe.
These are just some of the best first dates ideas. Well, these are according to my experiences that worked. Will these work for you too?
