What’s the best first date activity?
I’ve been asked this question by so many people; it definitely is a common one. The first date is so crucial to the development of a relationship.
One of the most common first date ideas is dinner and a movie. Sure, it’s a classic and sounds like a good idea. WRONG!
Dinner dates can be risky. If you don’t know your date very well, you run the risk of over, or even underwhelming them. The type of restaurant you pick, the price range, even the popularity of the establishment can all send the wrong signals.
Then there’s the movie. Going to a movie and sitting awkwardly next to your date and not talking for two hours is not a way to get to know someone. Save the movie dates for later, the main point of the first date is for you and your date to get to know each other better.
In my experience, the best first dates have always been something casual. Such as meeting up at a Jamba Juice, getting smoothies, and taking a walk around a park. Since it’s beginning to get cold out, don’t be afraid to take it inside, to a mall, perhaps. Make sure you keep it upbeat and fun, however.
Thanks for the question Kendell, I hope I helped you out!
