First dates are exciting: a chance to get to know someone you’re interested in to see if there’s potential for a long-term relationship is enough to get anyone’s blood pumping.
But when it comes down to the first date agenda, many people find themselves stuck deciding on what to do. While exciting, there’s some pressure involved with a first date – you want to plan something fun that allows you to get to know each other a little better but is still low-pressure.
To help you decide on a perfect first date plan, take a look at some of our handpicked first date ideas, chosen with you in mind:
Visit a nice restaurant:
One of the most common first date ideas, visiting a nice restaurant is often top of the list for many people. And, it’s for good reason: you have time one-on-one to talk to each other comfortably and get to know each other’s food preferences. Plus, should there be a lull in the conversation, you can always discuss your meals and the restaurant itself.
Be sure not to choose something too fancy at first, though, as this can put unnecessary pressure on your date. Somewhere relatively casual, while still good quality, is ideal for a first-date spot.
Check out a museum:
If you already know of some interests you and your date have in common, consider visiting a local museum. You can look for a museum that aligns with your shared interests and set aside time to visit.
This is a great opportunity to have an engaging conversation you can both contribute to, given your common interest in the subject. You’ll be able to get to know each other better while talking about something you’re both comfortable with!
