Accordingly, you have made plans for a first date. Wait, don’t tell me. Let me guess what you are planning.
Um, I think you picked “take her to dinner at the chain restaurant around the corner and then to a boring chick movie.” Am I right?
This may be what you think is a safe bet, but there are numerous drawbacks to this.
First off, it’s dull! Why did you choose this? It’s probably a wearisome restaurant and lackluster sappy love movie.
Second, how can you really get to know someone when you have to spend three hours of your time together silently?
Let’s be more ground-breaking, show her how imaginative you can be.
OK, so they might be lavish but they are a great place to go on a date. She will see that you really want to have a great time with her, so you are shelling out a lot of money for tickets. Also, when you are waiting in those hour long lines, you can pass the time getting to know each other, asking questions. And as the day goes by, you slowly move on to the rides where you have to sit tremendously close, sometimes she has to sit in your lap. How great is that?!?
Have a beach BBQ with friends or just the two of you. It’s a nice way to relax and it’s a surprise. Not very many guys can whip out a beach BBQ picnic. You bring some hot dogs and condiments (if you are smart, you start saving up those little packets from fast food joints way before hand).
Bring some drinks in a cooler, a blanket (or two) to snuggle on and of course, don’t forget the s’mores fixings and wood for the fire. Then you can take her for a walk on the beach, hand in hand, enjoying the crash of the waves, the cool night breeze and the sand between your toes. She’ll like this because it’s quite dreamy.
Fairs and festivals, especially the small community variety, are a pleasant way to spend your time. It’s tons of fun to people watch and that helps break the ice on a first date. Play one of those games where you win the stuffed animal and she will be thrilled at your attempts to please her. Buy corn dogs, frosty beer and those yummy funnel cakes or share an ice cream cone. You’ll win over her heart in the process.
