It is a crucial moment to accomplish two goals; to impress and to be impressed.

What to do?

Keep reading for first date ideas to choose from.

Lunch or coffee

Sometimes you want to keep the outing casual so suggest meeting up for lunch or coffee can be a good start.

This way, if the meet didn't go so well both can part way but if you enjoy each other company, you have the rest of the day to spend together.


Choose a restaurant with a relax atmosphere. Something decent but not too fancy. Not too noisy either.

A nice ambiance to dynamise or relax both of you depending on the mood you both feel.

It would be ideal if the restaurant has a bar so you can have a drink or two while you talk before you sit down for a meal.

Theme Park.

Doesn't matter how old you both are, we can all be big kids at heart.

There're so much you can do at theme parks that most likely you forget about the dating pressure.

It allows to see what level of thrill your companion is comfortable with. It is only an indication.

I have a friend who hates roller coasters. But she is the strongest individual I know who can deal with corporate pressure.

Sporting events.

If somehow you found out you both share the same passion for certain sport.

Why not suggest going to see a game?

Tennis, baseball, badminton, soccer, hockey, etc....it will give you plenty to talk about after when you guys will go for coffee and/or desert in a place near by.

These sporting event ideas give plenty to chit chat with your partner first; you may observe the level of competitive nature.

Being competitive is nor right or wrong. It depends what kind of lifestyle you are looking for. You might be delighted either way.

Do something active.

Having something to do is sometimes better than being in a setting where you're forced to have a conversation. Here are some ideas

Go bowling

Go Kart racing

Play pool


Skiing, Snowshoeing and reward yourselves at the best hot chocolate place in town

Art. Culture. Beauty.

Outdoor free show (concert, classical, themed festival, ...)

Expo in a museum of striking painting, colorful glass sculpures, late musician or historical artefacts, etc...

Visit and Aquarium be both amazed with the colorful fishes. Talk abour your favorite vacation spots

Depending on how active you and your friend are that is, you would hate to be forced into doing something you don't enjoy.

There're endless of other things you can do on your first date.

Altough all of these are suggestions, keep the following attitudes regardless of your date's behaviour;

Be creative

Be considerate of the person's likes and dislikes.
