With romance, you can never go wrong with a classic, dinner and a show. It maybe overused, cliché and old fashioned but you have to admit the concept is brilliant. The point of a first date is to get to know a person, what better than to start a conversation than a sure fire topic you both have in common, the show you just saw. With the variety of shows available today, you can choose to either watch a new release, a comedy act, a stage play or even an outdoor performance. Either way whatever you will choose will give you something to talk about and get over those awkward silences.
A first date is something that can either make or break your love life. Most people think that it’s the art of making a move that determines your place in the dating game but really it’s the first date that counts. You might be a smooth operator but when it comes to dating, you need to be able to do more than catch someone’s attention, you need to keep their attention as well. A first date is an idea place for you to show the other person that you have more than the good (or bad) flirting skills that got them here in the first place.
A great first date is going to a carnival. It’s sweet, it’s romantic and it also shows that you have a carefree fun side that might win you some major points. Whether it be going on a few rides, playing a few games, enjoying a nice ice cream cone or candy floss, there is always something to do which will counteract any awkwardness there might be in the initial stages especially if you’re not the world’s greatest charmer. Another unique date idea is an activity date. Go do something that both of you might enjoy, bungee jumping, rock climbing, parasailing, jet skiing, miniature golf wine or beer tasting or even a cooking or dance class is great way to get the evening off to a good and interesting start. So when the activity is done and you’re enjoying the sushi you made at class or enjoying an ice cream cone on the boardwalk, you will have some interesting opinions on the date or at least you’ll have some good stories to tell.
The thing with first dates is that you have a chance to make an impression that will last or at least set the tone for your relationship. You might have had an awkward first meeting, a very alcohol induced moment of courage when asking them out or it simply might be a blind date. Either way the reason so many people put pressure on a first date is because of the first impression. So remember to be responsible, respectful and dashing and hopefully our ideas will help you as well.
