Are you planning on taking your longtime crush on a date? That certainly has to be exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time. The first date will say a lot about who you are, so it’s important that you make a good impression. Therefore, we will help you plan the ideal day and you can guarantee a second date will be coming your way. Let’s get started!
Cocktails and beers all the way
You haven’t had the opportunity to get to know this person well enough, so play it safe and suggest a quiet night of cocktails and background jazz music. You can’t go wrong with that; who doesn’t love to drink and listen to a beautiful melody. The best part about this idea is that during first dates you’re most likely going to be a bit nervous. Therefore, having a few mojitos will lighten the mood and help you be a bit more comfortable. However, keep in mind not to overdo it, you don’t want to be passing out; that won’t be a very good first impression.
Take a Walk
This will genuinely turn out to be more fun than it sounds. The reason is that, most often on dates you have to dress up and most likely be in a restaurant with a bunch of other couples. Hence, you don’t get the privacy you want and you find yourself being rather stiff. Therefore, take her out for a walk to a peaceful area, where you either can sit on a bench overlooking a lake or perhaps stop for some ice cream during your walk; this will give you a better chance to get to know each other. Save the extravagant plans for later!
Make it a Triple Date
The standard plans for any date is usually to go for a movie and some dinner; this idea is getting so predictable. Hence, it’s to be more creative! Perhaps go for a music festival, take a hike or grab yourselves a few Barcelona football tickets; that would certainly be something new and turn out to be more fun than the usual dinner date. The best part about having friends around is that it takes away some of the first date jitters and allows you to let loose so that you can be yourself.
Do something out of the Ordinary
Ask your date what they would like to do and come up with something you both will enjoy. It’s certainly a very gentleman like quality to have flowers at the door step and plan a candlelit dinner, but isn’t it so much better to do something fun? You may even find that you have the same likes and dislikes; jackpot! Is she a Tom Starkes fan or rather football in general? Why not surprise her with Bayern Munich tickets or Arsenal FC tickets? Perhaps take a stroll through an aquarium; even if you experience any awkward silence, seeing the sharks will make up for that. It certainly sounds like a date to remember!
Whether you decide to do something adventurous or stay in and explore your cooking skills; there are plenty of options for you to choose from. Play video games, have some wine and listen to music, it doesn’t always have to be over the top. The first date does give you the ‘butterflies in your stomach’ feeling, but considering the following tips, it will certainly be the most fun.
