Where Should You Go On The First Date?

One of the most frequently asked questions in the history of dating (with the exception of the caveman who was a firm believer in kidnapping and always took his date to a filthy cave) is where should one go on a first date. For starters, there are several places you shouldn't even think about going on a first date. They are listed below in order of "you'll die alone" rankings.

1) Never go to your parent's house, especially if you still live there, on a first date. It says you're beyond desperate.

2) When you promise someone a good time, it does not mean a luxury chicken box dinner in your out of the way motel. This proves that you're stupid and freaky.

3) A movie as a first date? When exactly are you supposed to get to know the other person, during the three previews before the movie? This would not be a good call. If you want to watch a movie, watch it at home alone now or save it when the two of you have a reached a comfortable snuggle level.

Now that you know where not to go on a first date, let's discuss a few places where you might choose to go. Here are 4 great places for a first date.

1) A museum is an excellent location for a first date, and they're generally inexpensive. By chance, if neither your nor your date are history or art lovers, the exhibit will inspire you to talk about something even if it's nothing but your dislike of museums. Most museums usually have cafes or are located near restaurants so dining should not be a problem either.

2) A casual restaurant or a coffee house is also a comfortable first date environment. Be sure and keep your date's preferences in mind when selecting a place. There is nothing more itchy than going for dinner at a seafood restaurant when you're allergic to seafood.

3) A park is a perfect avenue for a first outing. Walks that turn into picnics are laid back affairs where two people can feel comfortable out in the open. This is also a great opportunity to showcase your peanut butter and jelly sandwich making skills.

4) Outdoor concerts also offer another possibility for pleasant initial dates. Two people can talk in a relaxed atmosphere, and the outdoor arena lends itself to comfortable unrestrictive clothing, which in itself will take some of the dating pressure off each of you.

One last note. No matter where you go on a first date, always exercise common sense by meeting in public and never doing anything which makes you uncomfortable. Keep yourself safe so you can enjoy all that life has to offer.
