    First Date Ideas..?

    Well..

    Had been speaking to this girl for a while, and then I finally asked her if she'd come out with me sometime, she said yes W000t

    but now ive sort of thought, oh yea, now i've actually got to go somewhere lol.

    So im after some ideas for a first date, so far come up with a few:

    Go for a meal - not a bad way really

    Go for a drink(pub) - could be ok, as its informal (but would this be a *good* first date?)

    Pool - sounds weird, but goto a pool hall and have a few games, could be a way to break the ice

    Cinema - not very easy to get to know someone due to lack of conversation..

    i'm trying to think of something fairly unique but not OTT, so suggestions are welcomed

    Toboganning if she's an out going kind of girl not one of these princesses that can't possibly get cold.

    If she is a princess then a nice meal somewhere in the country side.
    Its a jam thing

    Pool hall sounds like a good idea!! Alternatively, there's always things like bowling, funfair type place if there's one around, the zoo (much awww's, and aahhh, and oohhhs)

    For a first date, a meal might be a bit too much pressure being as it's your first time and you are definately stuck together! And your idea about the cinema i'd agree with being a bad idea. I remember doing this once and it was awfull!

    I'd say stick with a casual drink for a first date mate. Like you say, cinema is no good cause you just sit there not talking. Meal may be a little too much for a first date, prob better for second or third.

    cheers for the ideas people apreciate it, keep them coming

    on a further note, seeing as its been a while (god im only 23..) would you ask her where she wanted to go,ie give her a selection or just pick the best and ask her if she fancies .... idea?

    I think girls like the guy to make these kinds of decisions - so I would tell her what youve organised.

    A casual drink is definetly the best way to go as you are not stuck together, just dont go somewhere that there is football on the telly or loud music.

    I would play it cool also, dont get too worried about what she will think about where you choose - if shes really interested and worth getting to know - it wont matter.

    I should know, I've made so many mistakes before lol!!!

    Cinema followed by a drink after.

    informal and its not too heavy makes both of you feel relaxed, then on 2nd date something more getting to know each other

    Try this if you can... take her for a walk in the country, or better still along the beach... the fact it'll be a little cold means she'll have to cuddle up to you a bit as you walk together

    when you've walked for a bit, maybe half an hour/an hour or so (dependant on weather ), tell her you have arranged a taxi to take you somewhere nearby for some food and a drink - see if you can find a local pub that has an open fire in it, and ask the manager if you can book the closest table...


    This is a near fool-proof plan... taking her to the nice warm pub for food will show the considerate and caring side of you, after you have taken her for a romantic walk.. if you've been chatting for a while, then she will know you anyway, so something like this will give her the message you want to be more than friends...

    Good Luck hope it all works out whatever you do!!

    for a first date, a casual drink in a nice bar (bottle of wine in a cooler etc) is deffo the best way to go. Ive overdone first dates before, and it just felt weird... My best first date was simply a drink as described, in the vudu bar in york, on a thurs night i think it was. We ended up getting pretty tipsy pretty quick and it just flowed. Not sure what you are like at cunjuring up conversation, but i find it helps to at least think about some topics of common interest and plan ahead in that respect. Might sound weird but worked for me.
