I am in my early 30s and no, I've never really been on a date. I've had a few double dates. However, I've been married for ten years, I'm not sure how to dress for dates, unless its with my ex-husband. Its not with him so, I don't know how to dress, lol. I don't know how nice the place we are going to eat is, all I know is a movie and dinner. I need to know what to wear :(

It depends what kind of guy asked you out.
Movie theaters are pretty low-key venues. I've never been to a theater where people dressed really fancy, so it would be weird if he took you to a very high-end restaurant after that.
Also, since this is a first date, the general rule is not to go to a very expensive restaurant. It puts too much pressure on the date and he still barely knows you. The exception is if the guy is extremely wealthy. Then he can take you where ever he wants because it's all a drop in the bucket to him.
But assuming he's not a self-made multi-millionaire, I'm going to assume a mid-range restaurant for this kind of date. This means there will be some people there still wearing their work clothes, and some people dressed a little fancier because they're also on a date.
In fact, you could probably get by with casual attire. However, a good rule of thumb is to always dress a little fancier than what's expected because it makes a good impression. It's not bad if you're dressed fancier than him and even most other people (just don't over do it). But if he's smart, he'll know this rule too.
So I'd suggest that at the minimum wear some kind of dress, not a t-shirt and jeans. Even if t-shirt and jeans are acceptable, you can't go wrong wearing a dress. Take the weather into consideration. I'm sorry, I don't know much about woman's clothes so I can't advise more than that. Most guys don't know, so if it looks good to you in the mirror, then he'll probably think so too. If he thinks you spent way more time than was necessary, that's a good thing. Just don't overdo it. You're not going to an opera house or a wedding.0
