great advice actually, that sounds more fun than awkward ass coffee shops and other shit people are suggesting
@Shamalien Absolutely. You don't want to put too much pressure on the girl or make her feel like she owes you anything or is obligated to do anything - you want her to WANT to spend time with you, and to feel relaxed and that she's free to choose.Given that, you don't want to spend a lot of money on her (that often makes a girl feel uncomfortable, and that you expect a quid pro quo), and you want to keep things public, at least in the beginning, so she doesn't have to worry. But most importantly, you want to be able to talk and joke and laugh together, AND talk about compatibility (career plans, family plans, family obligations, morals, values, hopes and dreams, etc.) because that's really the goal of early dates.I like to pick some kind of activity that allows these things to happen, and we usually do a casual meal or snack (ice cream, or maybe a cupcake from a bakery, or something like that) at some point.I've taken dogs for a walk (hers and mine), gone on a bike ride, gone to a new outdoor mall and walked around the shops, food festivals, a local hot-rod street show (she liked old custom cars), and all kinds of other things. Anything but the old, boring "dinner and a movie" date that she's been on a hundred times. It's not that those can't be fun, but they just aren't a great early date.
thanks again for the advice, I've always made the mistake of thinking dinner and a movie was a good idea for the first date, but I knew deep down it felt awkward, your ideas are much better
Isn’t the whole point of a date social exchange?
@okeydoke I was thinking a blind date or a date where you realize you don’t like the person but want to conclude the evening for politeness sake without ghosting them the minute you realize you don’t like them.
I think ghosting them the minute you don't like them is the kindest thing you can do. Hanging around in a dark theatre with someone you don't like sounds awful. Thanks for meeting me, I have an appointment to keep, I'm meeting my cousin in X minutes. Escape. No point in continuing a date that has failed.

How come a lot of people from there smell poorly?
People from where? The movies? 😶
Oh they do? Never noticed!
Got many nearby?
Plenty! I am in India.
How is Australia? Follow back!
That is how it should be. This girl said after the second time meeting me she didn't feel a connection blah blah, then ignored me when I was trying to be her friend and asking her to play tennis, etc. I insisted she pay me for the $ I spent on her (she makes quite a bit), she did, then said not to contact her anymore. Mean people these days.
Women are fake. Bottom line. Fuk'n gold diggers. They get offended by this because they know it's true
