Making Those Big First Date Mistakes… One Of The Biggest, Dinner.
“Here’s why you shouldn’t be taking them to dinner on the first date” Stay clear of those first date mistakes.
First dates, they are a combination of nervousness, excitement and adventure. Going on a first date can create some amazing memories for both of you, or some bad ones… Now what I’m here to do today is have a little chat about not making the biggest first date mistakes and how to mix up a standard date from oh so casual to so memorable they can’t forget.
You’ve met this great person, maybe you bumped into each other at a club, book store or even on the street, whatever your story may be you have probably exchanged numbers and you’re now planning that first date. That first proper ‘meeting/interview’ where you’ll be asking each other questions and getting to know one another.
Well while getting food and chatting is great, its so important to get a bigger picture of both of you. Its a bit.. Well… Overdone. Okay, I suppose that’s a bit over the top. Let me explain, going to dinner is good, you get food, have a chat, get to know each other and go home (Maybe with a kiss if you’re lucky).
That’s great, you’ve had a good night, but let’s say it goes somewhere, maybe you keep talking putting the effort in and eventually after long work you are going out, would you want to look back and say “Yeah our first date was at the restaurant there” I just feel like you could do something so much better.
At the end of the day you want her/him going back home and thinking… “Oh wow, that was actually amazing, I can’t wait to see them again” not “Yeah, that was alright, food was good”. Think of all the possibilities you could do instead of dinner date, struggling for ideas… Follow this link!
Imagine if you said to that person, I’ll plan the date and you end up doing something amazing that creates this memory that sticks with your for the rest of your life… Sounds better than dinner, don’t you think? If you’re still sold on dinner, do it after something different, so for example; Imagine going to a concert, watching a live band with this great atmosphere then going to dinner after. They’ll get asked so how was your first date, give me the details. Imagine them replying with... “Well, actually…We went to this concert, it was so much fun!” It just sounds so much better than “We had dinner”.
So remember, when planning that first date, don’t go generic… You should start to get an idea into what they like. Mix up the first date opportunity and make this amazing memory.
What do you think though? Would you want to try something new on a first date or are you stuck to the concept of dinner first? Comment below I want to hear all about it!
