I have written a few different articles on this subject, but the list of places you can go on is endless. I could write 35 articles on date places and still not run out of ideas. My problem with movie dates is that, while going to the movie is fun and dandy, it’s kind of boring on a first or second date. If I take the time to go out with you on a first date, it’s because I want to get to know you and see if you’re really dating material- sitting in a dark theater doesn’t allow me to get to know you. I’m not saying never go to a movie, I’m saying it’s not the best when you are on a first date. 

So where can you go on a first date? The limit on where you can go is only really limited by your imagination. My ideas and experiences are here to inspire you to come up with something that you will both enjoy. Make sure when picking out the place for the date, it isn’t something that only you will enjoy; for example, I am not a sport fan. Sure, if you want to watch a football game, I’ll sit and pretend to watch and care, but don’t think for one second I am actually enjoying the experience. While some women enjoy sports, and taking them to a game would be great, it would be a horrible date to take me on. When planning the date, you need to take things like that into consideration. 

There are a lot of places you can go to- it doesn’t always have to be a movie and dinner. You can go to a museum or art show if you are interested in history or art, or know that she is. You can go on a romantic picnic or on a hike if you enjoy nature and it’s a nice day. For my boyfriend and I, the perfect date would probably going to the comic book store, then getting something to eat and ending the night talking about comic book artists and writers. Think of something you would enjoy doing, then think of something that she would enjoy, and if you don’t know, ask her. 

The whole point of a date is to get to know the person you are going on a date with- you can’t do that in a quiet theater. Find a place where you can enjoy yourself while you enjoy getting to know your date. She clearly thinks you’re worth getting to know if she wanted to go out with you- don’t make her regret it by sitting in a dark room, ignoring her the entire time. So use your imagination and brainstorm ideas with her of places that you would enjoy going. Have fun on your date and don’t stress out, dates are a good time, so make it happen!
