  • Something that is easy to eat without making a mess of myself, so pasta and Mexican are out! Lol

    Any standard sit down restaurant that has a decent variety to choose from. I'd usually get something like a wrap or steak, or see if he wanted to split a few applies.

  • I'm not really a fan of meals on a first date, but if I did have to pick, it would most definitely be small bites.

    For example: Sushi.

    Keep it nice and formally conducted 😂 don't want any heavy indulgence in food on the first date.

    • Do you prefer to go out for a drink on the first date?

    • drinks are good for part of the night :) but I enjoy dates that allow me to really get to know my partner, or ones where we can interact a lot and have fun (playing, for example 😂)

  • Meat, some kind of grill or BBQ, because everybody who isn't vegetarian or vegan loves BBQ. So even if the date is boring asf you get a good meal out of it.

  • Meat!!! Steaks are the best!!! I would settle for pasta and sushi though since I also like them. I am also up for almost any kind of good food. A little lamb chops, some goat curry or maybe some spicy hot pot. I tend to avoid chinese food on 1st dates as they are much better when you eat as a family.

    Women are a little strange on meals for their 1st dates though. I watched some of them devoured a 16oz bloody steak with dessert on top when they hang out with other girls or alone. Then the next day, they would have something like a chicken salad with the boyfriends.

  • I'm a fan of using chance to decide things like that. I let her narrow it down to 2 places that she wants and then I like to flip a coin to decide. I also use coin flips to decide what I'm ordering.

  • wow it seems like I'm taking first dates to mcdonalds or olive garden from now on! I chose meat because that's what I always eat.

    Speaking of which, I'm surprised no salads or pizza on the menu

    • The company is way more important than where we eat to me so I'd rather just go somewhere she likes

  • I would hit up a sushi bar. Sushi is yum!

  • I don't recommend restaurants on a first date, we're both very nervous on a first date and restaurants are just too intimate, I took her to a very casual place and was still very jittery.

    • I was always a fan of doing a nice pub for a first date. Have a couple beers, share an appie or two, play a game of pool or buck hunter. Nice and casual..

  • Something that isn't messy, and eaten with utensils as opposed to picked up.

    Going for food on a first date isn't a good idea IMHO. It makes conversation difficult.

  • I don't go on dates or eat inside restaurants. What humans call food is disgusting and deteriorating my body and my mind. Food that is healthy, hearty, and will fill me up is good. So much sugar, salt, fat, or bad chemicals is added to food nowadays that it will soon be impossible to survive. It seems like food becomes made cheaper and cheaper, after a certain period of time anyway.

  • Fast food on the first, spending little money and putting full focus on the conversation. If it goes well, and she seems my type so far, the second would be a pasta or breakfast type.

  • I like going to bar and grills. Basically because they offer a good variety of foods, so there's bound to be something we both like on the menu.

    If you know they like specific foods, like sushi or indian cuisine, then you could always take them to a restaurant that offers that. Otherwise you should play it safe.

    I love going out to eat on a first date. It gives me a chance to talk to them. I'm not a coffee drinker and with it being warmer out now, it's not really my thing to go sit in a coffee shop. I feel so confined and it makes it hard for me to think of things to talk about.

  • I prefer Korean food because it gives us something to talk about. Anybody eats italian or chinese food but Korean is so different it leads to a conversation like "why korean food?" Or "have you been to Korea?" "How do I use these chopsticks teach me please! "
