  • I love free dates because they're always the best dates. There's no pressure to impress with how much money you can spend or who picks up the tab, and they're usually the kind of dates that force you to interact with each other instead of just sitting across from each other at a table.

    I love movie and dinner dates at home, and I love picnic dates. My husband proposed to me on a picnic date in the park. I loved it.

  • I would do the movie night/game night/cooking thing if I lived by myself. And those other things are pretty obvious. But okay.

  • First Date/Blind Date Idea: Go browse through a bookstore together. Not only will you find out if your date even likes to read (big turn off for me when I found out a guy didn't read), but also WHAT they read. If they seem to gravitate to a certain section or authors you might find if you have common interests or authors that you like, or maybe they can open you up to books you never had heard of. Either way, it's a fun and interesting way to get to know someone on your first date together!
