Organizing a first date can be a real problem – you don’t want to be boring and go for yet another café latte in some overpriced, overcrowded, poncy coffee shop! Yet anything else can seem like a risk. Well, I’m not going to give you suggestions but, even a better I’ll give you a few simple rules to help you choose and organize a relaxed, smooth, fun first date!
Take the lead when organizing a first date
As a man, I believe you should strive to take the lead on where you go for that first date. Women (generally) like a man who is confident taking the lead and can organize a smooth, fun date. Obviously, this is a generalization, so if you’re open to an independent, modern women taking the lead, then why not! However, first impressions go a very long way so it is well worth taking time and effort in organizing something great…
Preparation is everything!
Choose a lively venue that provides enough stimuli to be fun and interesting to both of you but doesn’t drown out the possibility of good conversation so you can get to know each other a bit. Look in your local ‘what’s on’ guide for inspiration. Whatever you do, check out the venue at the same time and day as your arranged date the week before if you can.
Say you’re considering taking your date to an art or photography exhibition, make sure it’s not going to be overcrowded or requiring a long queue at your chosen time – some venues require you to queue even with pre-booked tickets. Check every last detail – preparation is everything! Be prepared to choose something else if it looks like it might be a less than smooth experience for the both of you, unless you know it’s something your date really wants to see.
