I was thinking of reserving a place for dinner downtown and then a movie, would that be lame? What are some other ideas for a first date? Also should i give her flowers? I was thinking a single rose not like a boquet
If its cold, I think thats a wonderful idea. Maybe also if you two are up for it, get some hot chocolate/coffee and walk around and see pretty Christmas lights. My city does a whole light ceremony and stuff. Flowers on a first date may be a little too sudden if you barely know each other. But if you two were good friend first, I'd say flowers are cool too.
Sounds like the perfect date to me but I agree that if you're getting to know one another? A movie might be better saved for a later date but it is your call and what you think she'll love (I would personally dig it but I'm not every girl, obviously). You sound very romantic, like a lot of thought and effort is being made here, I'm sure she'll have a great time with you :)
No you going over board on first date. do not flatter a girl first date. Just dress nice, and eat somewhere casual. Dinner should be like 30 -40 and anything else above is over spend. Please no flower or gift. It will take pressure off from you and her. You don't know what she thinking or after. Maybe she want just hook up or she just make new friend but you don't know for sure. Just get to know her but not a interview way though. Express yourself to her and tell her what you want
