Full disclosure: I've only been on two first dates with girls so my experience is limited. However, I found on both of those dates that they weren't worth it based on the work I put into asking the out and planning it. While I was on each of the dates, I kept thinking to myself what a chore it would be to keep this up. I don't know if it had to do with the girls I was out with (I liked them less after the date than before...especially the second one, who ended up talking about other guys like her old boyfriend), but it just didn't seem very fun at all. Like I could be doing something else during that time on my own that would've been more fun.
