Ideas for a fun first date?

What are good ideas for a fun first date with someone you've never met in person or only very briefly? For example someone you met on Tinder. I'm looking for ideas that are in a public location (which give space for an escape) and won't cost a fortune. I'm not a grabbing a coffee/going for a drink kinda girl... So I'm interested in what some more creative ideas you guys have or maybe some stories about fun/original/creative/out-of-the-box dates you've actually been on ^^ Ideas for a fun first date?

  • My first date with my fiance, who I met on tinder, we went to a good Asian restaurant and then we looked at fish and other animals at the local pet shops. Then we went to baskin Robin's before taking a walk at a park.

    Once I went to a zoo that was free with a woman and then went to a place on a lake that has fire rings and fire wood available for anyone to use for free and we sat around a fire sharing memes and talking until midnight.

    Another time I picked up a woman from her college, and took her to help me get some groceries from a really nice small time grocery store so I could cook dinner for us before going to the pet store to help me pick out a few fish for an aquarium I had started to set up when we first started talking.

    • Those sound like awesome dates! thanks for sharing :)
      A free zoo? :O where can I find such a magnificent place? or do you mean a petting zoo?

    • The one I went to was in Madison Wi. It's a great zoo and funded by donations.

    • Cool. I wish we had those in the Netherlands :/

  • Do something simple like a game of bowling, laser tag, roller skating, or ice skating. You don't have to go on from there, but if you like him then maybe go to a comfortable diner or drive through and have a laptop in the car with a movie set in mind. Try a comedy, it'll make you laugh without getting too far into genre. Everyome loves to laugh, so you can get to know his. This way you can watch the movie without having to cuddle or touch, but you can still hold hands if you want. Leaves room for if you like him or not and how comfortavle you are.

  • If he/she loves pet then definitely take them to a pet cafe where you can play with dogs/cats... If he/she is shy types then take them to a place where no one will bother you... If they are spontaneous then an arcade or amusement park would be great...

  • Go old fashioned. When the weather is nice I like to go to the park for a walk/picnic. If your park isn't super public, picking some sort of "psuedo-date" is always fun. I took one girl too the super market for grocery shopping once haha. I just told here where I was gonna be and welcomed her out. Dont be surprised if they don't show, but it's a good way too meet someone without breaking your daily stride.

    • That sounds really casual, I like it! Thanks :) did you two do something after the shopping? Eat together?

    • While I was shopping and getting too know her I asked if there was anything around she needed too do. As it turns out, there was. We didn't go anywhere after but we did plan a real date. And we got a lot of errands done on both sides

    • Cool. I like this idea :)

  • I found bowling is usually more fun than one might think. The main thing is that you can hear each other talk

    • Never EVER go to a movie on the first date. You'll spend most of the time sharing nothing.

    • Going to the movies is sitting down and not talking for 1.5-2 hours. Sure, you have something to talk about afterwards, but for a first date, I'd much rather get more to know about her rather than about a movie!

    • Sorry, got to agree with Shoenron and GuyWannaHelp here..

  • Bowling or something sporty that you are competing, you learn a lot about someone when you compete against them

  • This is how I would treat someone on a date or in general if I see potential for more than friends (after talking for a while of course for safety reasons)
    From a guy's perspective 😊

    Start out the day with going for breakfast or tea , then take her shopping, go to the movies together and finally have dinner with her in a spot where you can get a picturesque scenery like looking down at the city or beach bellow.
    Treat her like an absolute Queen by not only being a boyfriend but also as a best friend by always supporting her and by making memories each day to last a lifetime

    This is just my opinion 😊😊😊

    • Sounds really good! You sound like a true gentleman ^^ But a whole day? What if (s) he turns out to be disappointing. Then you're stuck with them the whole day πŸ˜₯

    • Well in that case πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      If he goes left

      go right

      But everything in life takes time just as getting to know a person 😊

      Other than that
      RUN πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • The only date i've been with someone from tinder I went to the cinema and then to get something to eat. She ended up being my girlfriend for 3 years

    • I've done this a lot of times. Didn't really work for me. You're stuck with a person for a long time, which is fun if the person is fun. But it gets awkward if you're not really into him and this becomes more obvious during the date. You can't escape basically xD Also: cinema is fun, but you don't really get to know the person... But I'm glad it worked out for you :)

  • This is very vague, but take them somewhere social. There is nothing more awkward than a quiet cafe or bar. Set the scene
