The frightening question is, where will you go on your all important first date?
How about a nice romantic meal?
The idea of being wined and dined by a jaw-stoppingly gorgeous man is certainly appealing, but be careful what you order. Going on a first date and ordering garlic bread, followed by garlic pasta is never going to be a good idea. Neither is ordering something that’s notoriously difficult to eat, like spaghetti, so consult the menu carefully. I’m not suggesting eating your food in a seductive manor, if you start suggestively liking your fingers the waiter might not be too pleased, just try to order something that you can eat without getting it all over your face.
A trip to the cinema...
Everybody loves a trip to the cinema, if there’s a new film out that you simply have to see then that’s even better. However, in my opinion the cinema isn’t always first date friendly. Firstly, you can’t have all the ‘getting to know each other’ conversations in the cinema without being hushed by the rest of the audience. Plus it’s dark, which, when you need to check out every curve of this man’s face isn’t ideal either. But, on the other hand, the cinema doesn’t allow for any awkward silences, and if you’re not feeling a connection between the two of you can sit and enjoy the film without worrying about making small talk.
A cosy bar...
First date drinks could go either way, a nice relaxing drink in a bar, or dancing on the bar. A few cosy drinks in a classy bar or local pub could be a good idea; the atmosphere around you will provide you with things to talk about if the conversation runs dry. A few drinks will calm your first date nerves and bring you out of your shell, but a few too many drinks will have you stumbling and spilling your heart out, not a good look.
How about a spot of bowling?
Bowling always seems like a fun trip out with friends, so why not with a man. Well it really depends on how comfortable you feel with the man in question. Are you happy to make a fool of yourself in front of him on your first date? Because skipping up the lane, bending over and bowling a ball is never going to look elegant, but it’s guaranteed to show your fun, bubbly side. Another important thing to remember about first date bowling is the shoes. There’s always going to be that awkward moment when you hand over you beautiful shiny new footwear in exchange for those gastly red, white and blue bowling shoes. Think carefully about what you wear too, skirt, plus bending over and bowling shoes, equals embarrassment.
Let’s go for coffee...
The idea of going for coffee seems a bit American, not to mention cliché, to me, but as first dates go this could be ideal. Going for coffee provides all the conversation options as going for a meal or to a bar, without the fear of eating in front of him or getting rolling drunk. Going for coffee can also be as short, or as long a date as you make it, unlike the cinema where you’d seem extremely rude if you left mid film. Any there are no embarrassing shoes like with bowling; you can wear what you like. Just try not to spill hot coffee down yourself.
