The first date is very important when trying to get to know someone new. Many people think it’s the make or break of a potential relationship. While the first impression of a person is important, keeping a first date light and casual but with potential for romance is the key.
Check Out a Show
A great first date idea is to find something that’s fun and doesn’t require too much initial face time. A concert or theatrical performance are a fun choice for a date with potential since they don’t require too much one-on-one interaction but also a great chance to find out about one another. Instead of surprising your date with a live performance, make sure to find out what they like in advance. Choosing a show without finding out what they like, can easily destroy a potential love connection.
Going to the Movies
A classic, but still works like a charm. The movies are generally less expensive than a show and they have the potential for snuggling up or sharing some intense emotions, depending on the movie genre. Movies are an easy topic to discuss when getting to know someone and they are short enough to leave time for a bite or a drink afterwards.
Visit a Museum
A museum or art gallery are another great choice for a casual date where you can learn a lot about one another. While walking around and admiring the different collections, it provides many opportunities to talk about yourself and find out about your date as well. You feel less on the spot to entertain your date but you get a good chance to spend time together and see what they’re like.
Picnics in the Park
A picnic in the park is a romantic way to spend time together. It’s not as formal as a restaurant and you get some good alone time without feeling the pressures of having them alone at your place. This is a quick and simple approach that’s easy on emotions and also your wallet. Anytime there’s good weather, grab a blanket, buy some snacks and head out to enjoy the scenery while learning more about your date.
Dinner at Home
Making the first date fun and playful is the best way to casually find out if there’s some chemistry between the two of you. A first date has endless possibilities, and if you happen to play your cards right, you might even get to know each other even better. Just so you don’t blow it on the first try, make sure you’re prepared for anything.
