-There isn't a lot to do because there is still snow on the ground.

Most Helpful Guy

  • Wanna really intrigue him? Follow these tips:

    - The keypoint to dates is physical interaction.. You may or may not feel comfortable taking it as far as touching one another but listen to this: I'm more attracted to girls which are comfortable than girls which are uptight.. if you never touch me, I know instantaneously that your uncomfortable which is working against your odds.. If we are on a date where it requires physical interaction (if I fall down skating you can try to catch me, see the point?) then there's nothing to make it awkward.

    - Second point is that you should pick something that matches the personality of the person you'll be dating.. if you think he's the active outgoing type then I'd pick a date idea that resembles being a rebel (playing in the snow/rain, sneaking upstairs at the skating rink, etc) anything to get your heart racing.. But if he's more the shy/silent type then I'd recommend something more comfortable and well known, like walking in the park or having a picnic with M&Ms ontop a stationary train :)

    - Third point -> Cancel the date if you truly aren't in the mood. I hate it when women come out on a date only to be boring or to be a bitch; I'm not a therapist in real life unless someone is a great friend.. I didn't take you on a date if I wanted to be friends.. See my drift? If your not feeling up to a date, don't go, just please be respectful and cancel the date prior to the time it's scheduled.

    - Fourth point -> FUN is what your date should be like.. Not sweet or romantic.. You want it to be FUN.. Why? Well, I'm speaking on my own behalf on this one because I was the nice-guy for so long.. But I've noticed that people enjoy dates a lot more when they are lived with your "life on the edge" versus when it's sweet and comfortable.. A while back I said that people will choose the "fun intrigueing mysterious person" before they choose the "bland boring businessman who's nice".. The reason is that there's a type of adrenaline rush feeling behind the scenes which is strong attraction working in your favor.

    Hope the tips help, enjoy the date.. And congrats :P

  • Traveling somewhere where you can show the person a place you have seen, or if it's a new place for both of you, you can share the experience.

    for a first date, somewhere close by where it is a day trip only.

  • Movies are hard to get to know someone, plus its weird because your not comfortable to really sit all close or hold hands yet. Dinner can be nice, but sometimes can have the interview feel to it..

    Skating is fun and you get a good feel for the guy, less pressure more laughing and fun

  • Out of these options I think skating is the best. When you think about it, skating makes it very easy for you to break any contact barriers by saying something to the effect of "I suck at skating you're going to have to help me around the rink". And no matter how many people are there, its a very 1 on 1 activity.

  • Movies doesn't sound like a great first date at all. You can't talk during a movie, you just sit next to each other. Personally, I wouldn't be able to even watch the movie. I'd just find it awkward on a first date, to be honest. Skating I'd do if the girl seemed really cool, but I just went with food... but I'd probably skate and then eat if I could choose two.

  • I voted for food. First dates are about getting the standard questions over with and getting to know the other person. Skating would be a close second, but I think you would be focused more on the activity than getting to know the other person. Movies are a horrible first date, 95% of the time will be sitting around not talking.

  • the movies is not really a good idea for a first date, since you can't really talk in there, and I'm glad you asked him, why can't more girls out there take initiative?

    • because there are loads of shy girls out there xD.. oh and many girls are old-fashioned and think guys should make the first move.. I don't agree with them though I think it is OK for a girl to make the first move.. xD

  • And sex if you can get it.

  • I've always been a fan of "activity" dates; it gives you a chance to interact but also something to do so that there's less concern about awkward pauses in conversation. Plus ice skating can be pretty romantic. Just make sure that this is something she'd be into...some girls really don't like the outdoors or the cold or she might have a bad knee, etc. Some other great date ideas can have to do with sharing something that you enjoy with her. I once dated a guy who had graduated from art school and loved going on dates to museums with him. Also, I once went go-cart racing with a guy who was into cars. Or you could go to the planetarium (also super romantic) if you're into astronomy. As long as the girl likes these things as well, it can make for a great opportunity to get to know someone better.

  • For me a great first date will be a place where you both have the opportunity to chat, get to know each other a little more and be surrounded with people but at the same time not being bothered. I think dinner at a nice restaurant or maybe a place with a cultural flavor like food from another country that you think you both might like will bring itself a topic that you guys will talk and enjoy... Also, if you are a socially drinker (and drinks don't get much into your head) a nice bar with a romantic atmosphere will be a great place. Have fun in your date and best of lucks ! :)

  • Movie is always a bad date idea! I always start with an activity and end it with a snack if its all good.

    First, you have to think about what kind of person he is and choose something that you'll both be comfortable to do. Finding the right activity is the most important thing!

    Skating is perfect, since its neutral (almost like a walk) it will show your personality. It can be fun and energetic or it can lead to a good conversation.

    And then, if you're both having fun and wanna continue, you can suggest to go eating together! Its more spontaneous and revealing to ask it while you're having fun together!

    Like that, he'll know that you had a great time and that you wanna spend a little more time with him.

    Also, I try not to plan it, because sometimes the person is boring, so I leave after the activity :P

    Have fun!

  • DEFIANTLY NOT the movies... There's no talking involved. Skating... Well it's not as much fun if you both don't know how and it could get frustrating but on the other hand its entertaining and funny. Food, now this could happen in many ways... In a nice restaurant it could show how they could be on their best behavior, or a casual setting (diner, family restaurant, etc.) so that there are other people around and different things happening... The downside to this is that there could be distractions, take-out food or homemade/ home cooked is that there could be a lot of creativity and set the mood for the date or even a picnic going to the park with food and getting to know each other better

  • My first date I ever had with a boy was to the movies. I was so incredibly excited! but these people are right, you learn NOTHING about the other person nor do you get to talk. it was really awkward when we arrived at the theatre, we didn't know what to talk about...and the worst part is, is that we ran into friends..making it not just US anymore. which we needed. he made NO moves..later on I learned he was a total douche bag anyway, and a player! ugh...

    I suggest something interesting:) maybe horseback riding then dinner? I find ice skating very romantic. unfortunately I live in Arizona, making it hard to find an ice skating rink for me..

  • Movie's is my vote. Yeah you can't really talk during it but after the movie you have something to start a convo with and carry on from and who says the date ends with you movie you can always go for coffee or food after.

  • I used to think movies would be ideal.

    But now it's on the bottom of my list. The point is to get to know the person. That means talking and interacting. When you're at the moves, you're not talking, you're watching the movie.

    I voted for food, just because it's a first date so you don't know the person very well. Food is a very general, safe choice. Everyone loves food. Can't go wrong there.

    Skating would be a good 2nd or 3rd date, once you get to know the person a little better.

  • I think movies are a decent idea, but I voted C. I think once you know where the relationship's going then you can handle the whole alone in the dark thing.
