Home and we make supper together, cheap, fun, easy then watch a movie or something.
I like activities outside, hiking, rollerblading, biking...

I usually surprise her with random ideas

if i known her, i'd prob take her home for homemade dinner and a movie. its a first date, most people expect to much from the first. the idea is to give her a taste. but i can actually cook, the trick is to make it simple but slightly exotic just to impress her a bit but not to much for example US girls don't know of chicken tikka but instead of rice a nice and fluffy naan. after the dinner/lunch with all the talking. you'd enjoy the movie. here is where acting plays a role, it can back fire. basically its to use the silence to your advantage and try to read her like a book and that will lead to a second date with a higher rate of success.

this is where you can do something fun, if she doesn't like the activity, you still got the lax home and movie kinda thing than you can work with.

if its a first meeting and scoring, than i'd like to go with somewhere like iceskating and such.

My dates usually consist of renting movies and just hanging out since that seems the best way to get to know each other. but I do think laser tag would be the ultimate date.

What are some of your favorite/best ideas of where to take someone on a first date?

I tend to avoid loud nightclubs or movie theaters on a first date because both of you are essentially strangers and neither venue affords any opportunity for talking and conversation. And really that's what a first date is all about. Learning more about the other person and getting a feel for what they're about and whether there is any chemistry/compatibility.

For this reason I like to go on first dates that are fun, playful, and laid-back. Never rushed so it disrupts conversation flow or is awkward.

I like to choose places that allow you to interact with your date, like say a fair, carnival, zoo, aquarium, etc. Where you can see cool things, participate in some game or activity, and maybe promote some playful competition and teasing.

Something that causes an adrenaline rush or fear is great too, like a scary rollercoaster ride, etc. People tend to open up a lot more and empathize with those around them when they feel like they're in a "life-or-death" situation.

Other date ideas that are romantic but allow for ample relaxation and conversation is perhaps going bowling, bonfire at the beach, picnic and walk at the park, etc.

Dinner should be someplace nice, but never so upscale that you feel like you have to whisper across the table, or feel uncomfortable dining at. You want your date to be relaxed and comfortable wherever you choose to have dinner at. Some guys might think it's romantic or a kind gesture to try and share food with their date. But I advise against this, especially on a first date, because it can make them feel quite uncomfortable. Remember, you barely really know the girl.



Depends on a lot of things I think. Movies can be a good starter because they don't require a ton of talking. Some people have trouble acting normal or holding up a conversation when nervous and sometimes a movie allows them to relax without pressure. Afterwards it gives them something to talk about as well.

really comes down to how comfortable you are with the person. What kind of things she likes. A first date that is all about the girls likes rather than your own can make her feel special.

I agree with the OP, interactivity on a date is awesome to have. I think the two general guidelines I follow are interactivity in a fun loose atmosphere, no nightclubs or bars, and then for dinner, nice, but not too nice.

Worst first dates would include a restaurant with a smart ass waiter who picks on the girl you're with because she wears gold mittens and talks too much, then you end up agreeing with him and tip him $50 and she sees it and gets mad... going out on a double date with two of her best friends and sitting on the same side of the table as her as they talk the night away and you're the odd man out.

Big outdoor mall like places, like Universal City Walk, have always worked out well for me, or doing things like Mini-golf.

Do: Show up in your car in 10 degree weather with snow on the ground playing Slayer loudly with your windows rolled down and slide into your parking spot and then don't wear a jacket.... I'm sure I looked "soooo cooool"... she later told me she saw me pull in and I "intimidated her" which is why she was so nervous... I'm not intimidating.

On a side note, movies have worked out for me okay too, since as another poster said, it's good for shy people and helps to loosen you up... and if you're shy and trying to give off the image you're not don't do the above Slayer thing... just go to a movie.

If I've known the person awhile... like through work or something... I like staying in the best. Not a lot of pressure, good way to chill out and get to know someone better.
