Great First Date Ideas
The percentage of first dates that include dinner and a movie is probably extremely high.
It’s like, have we lost our creativity?
If you were looking for someone to date, (more than once) wouldn’t you be looking for something a little more exciting? Let’s save the go-to idea of dinner and a movie for later on when things are a bit more settled down, and go for the wow factor with the first date, shall we?
I mean, this is do or die here people, first date!
You should always be trying to make a great first impression so here are some awesome ideas for a first date that will hopefully have him or her smiling for hours before falling asleep that night.
If you are over 18 chances are you have not played much. Hit up a local playground and try out the monkey bars, swings, and slides. It may be just a bit awkward at first but how could anyone not laugh and have fun at a playground? Just be careful not to knock over any kids, parents tend to not like that!
This is a great icebreaker for a first date and a great memory for the future. (Wink!)
Break it Down
No, I do not mean break dancing (although, that could be fun too!).
What I am talking about is break down your dinner!
I know I said no boring dinner but this is not the usual.
Pick three different places for appetizer, meal, and dessert. If you’re having a great time you can add a fourth for drinks. This beats the usual dinner date of just sitting in the same spot for hours.
Let them pick, you pick, or take turns picking! That gives you a chance to get to know one another better.
This is definitely not your typical first date!
For this idea, you want to volunteer somewhere. It can be anything: a soup kitchen, a local garden or farm, anywhere that needs a little extra help.
This shows your date that you have a kind side and also lets you leave the date feeling like a million bucks. If it’s an impromptu date you can drive around performing random acts of kindness. It will be a feel-good kind of day!
Tell your date to bring a camera, or you could share one. You can be freelance photographers and go somewhere like a local park, an abandoned place, a cemetery, or anywhere interesting. See what amazing photos you can capture but don’t show one another right away.
When you’re finished go to a coffee shop or ice cream parlor. Sit and share your photos and get to know your date’s creative side.
This only works if it is not a college that you attend. College campuses have the most fun placed to go you could ever think of. Sports auditoriums, ice skating rinks, libraries, and eateries.
Pretend you are college students there and just go with the flow. Granted there may not be much going on but there is always a bar scene which is a good place to end up.
Ok. Now go off and enjoy your date. And come back for some great ideas for your Second date
