Dinner At An Unconventional Restaurant
Having dinner on the first date will give you a chance to talk to your girl without having to worry about any distractions.
However, the catch lies in picking the right restaurant. Your average Shoeless Joe’s just won’t do so you have to get creative in your choice.
Luckily, there are plenty of new restaurants popping up everywhere so ensuring you take her to a place she’s never been before is not that complicated.
However, your best bet is to go for a restaurant with a twist. For instance, everything that has to do with cooking is huge these days.
Lots of colleges offering state-of-the-art cooking programs also have restaurants where you can get great food for less while you support student efforts. She’ll praise you for being socially responsible.
Weather permitting you can go for a bicycle ride around town. Biking is huge everywhere and it’s a great chance for you to show your environmentally conscious side.
Pick a nice trail that is tranquil and where you won’t be disturbed by all the downtown hustle and bustle. Make sure you can ride next to each other so you can talk.
This is not your chance to show off your athletic abilities. You want to be a riding buddy to a girl, and you want to get to know her, not race her.
Your ride can end at a nice environmentally friendly bar/restaurant where you can get refreshments and end your date on a more relaxing note.
If you and your date enjoy the drink of the gods wine tasting can be a great first date idea. You can chat the afternoon away as you take all the notes from the sommelier.
There will be other people there to take the pressure down a notch, but you’ll still have a chance to get to know your date a little bit better, and make a killer first impression as a wine connoisseur.
On the other hand, if you’re not into wine lots of hip breweries offer beer tasting, but make sure you don’t drink more than your date and embarrass yourself for no reason.
