So, you’ve finally sorted through all the free casual encounter ads, dismissed all the forums filled with fake women, and have found yourself an online hookup platform that actually works. After all the messages you’ve sent out, you’ve started chatting up a woman that you actually find quite interesting, and by all indications, she finds you interesting as well. Eventually you ask her to meet you in person on a date, and she says yes! Great for you, that’s fantastic news. The only question that remains is what to do on this online date. There are a myriad of options before you here. You don’t want to lack originality, but you also don’t want to delve too far into the realm of experimentation and scare her off. Should you go for something tried and true, or something totally new? Well, you first need to reflect on what you know about this lovely lady that’s making her way over to see you. What does she like to do, what is she into? Once you have a good assessment of her personality in mind, it’s time to start thinking of what sort of things you two would enjoy doing together. To help you out, we have a few date ideas for you on your first date with your lovely online gal.
Take A Walk In The Park
There’s nothing quite as refreshing and relaxing as a good old fashioned walk in the park. By taking your date to the park, you two will both be in a calm, pleasant mood, which is perfect for getting to know one another. Maybe bring a few chunks of bread along with you, sit on the park bench, and feed the ducks as you find out who your lady is, how she grew up, and what she likes. If you have a dog, it would be a great idea to bring them along, and you and your date can have some fun in the sun playing frisby.
Take Her To A Museum
Whether she’s an art fanatic or not, a museum is the perfect setting for a first date. There are so many things to see, so much space to walk and so much open air for you to talk to each other. On a first date, while two people are trying to get to know each other, there tend to be several gaps in the middle of the conversations. At a museum, you can fill in those gaps by commenting on the beauty, ridiculousness, or hideousness of the piece in front of you. It’s a fail-safe dating idea, and it’s definitely something you should consider if you’re on the fence about what to do during your first date.
Take Her To An Outdoor Festival
Perform a quick online check if there’s anything special happening in your city on the day that you plan on taking your date out. Perhaps there’s some kind of fair, or an outdoor food event, or outdoor concert. Maybe there’s even a lovely, vibrant street parade happening. Some sort of outdoor festival can be a very fun, very different first date idea that your lady will thoroughly enjoy.
Take Her To A Restaurant
Of course, while novel ideas are certainly fun for all, it never hurts to go back to the tried and true roots of dating, and take your woman to a nice restaurant. Enjoy some good food, good wine, and ask her some questions about her life. Humankind has been engaging in courtship while sitting on a table and eating food for thousands upon thousands of years. It’s an activity that flows thickly through our bloodstream, which is why no one tends to oppose it when a restaurant is brought up. Maybe choose a place with some live entertainment, like some good live music playing, so you and your woman can be mesmerized by the musical aesthetic of the night. Who knows where the conversation will go, and who knows how the night will end?
Take Her Back To Your Place
We’re not saying that this would be the ideal first destination of a first date in all cases, but this is definitely the ideal place for your date to end. Gauge how well the night went, and ask her if she would like the idea of coming back to your place for a night cap. Night cap in this instance can mean several things, and we’ll leave that for you to figure out. The most important thing at the end of the day (or night) is that you and your date have a good time!
