Best First Date Ideas

What is the best idea for a first date? The boring (and also correct) answer would be – it depends. It depends on what you and your date would like to do and where you feel the most comfortable. If you don’t have a date yet, please read how to ask someone out on a date. Read on for some great first date night ideas.

How to pick a first date location

Take a look at the picture above. That lake would be a great place to bring your date to if he or she feels comfortable being alone with you in the woods. Maybe the two of you have known each other for a long time and you know that your date enjoys being outdoors. Well, then that lake is the perfect first date location.

A different scenario would be that the two of you just met the other day and therefore know very little about each other. A more comfortable approach to a first date location would then be in a public place, like a cafe or a park. A public location ensures that your date can feel safe.

Another aspect of the location of your first date is the chance for you and your date to converse freely. You won’t get to know each other that much watching a movie. Choose a calm and cosy restaurant and not a super-load restaurant.

Does first date location matter?

Yes, it does. It’s all about getting the two of you in the right mood. You both need to feel relaxed. The location definitely sets the mood between the two of you. You need to make your date feel safe and also let him or her know that there is a way out if the date doesn’t work out.

Should we sit at a bar or table on the first date?

Again, it depends. Sorry! There is no easy answer because the answer depends on whether you are in the mood for an informal or formal date. An informal date fits best at a bar (this could be ideal for a first date!) and a more formal date fits better when you sit by a table.

What are some funny first date ideas?

  1. Make a bonfire. As cozy as it gets! Cheap as well.
  2. Go ice-skating. A great icebreaker. Fun intended.
  3. Geocaching. It’s fun to struggle to find an object together.
  4. Take a dance course. Learn together and be physical.
  5. Go to a concert. It doesn’t have to you your favorite band that plays. Live music sets the tone for the whole night.

What date ideas is there for winter?

It can be a struggle to plan what to do when it’s cold outside. Embrace the cold! How about a winter bath together?
