But if you’re reading this, I’m going to assume that you’ve got one lined up in the next few days and that you’re ready to mop up all my first date tips for women… So many people decide that going for dinner and drinks for the first date is the ‘safest’ and best option… Dinner is perhaps my least favourite first date idea of all. ) eating (which is hardly the most gracious thing in the world) and if there is the slightest lull in conversation, it immediately becomes incredibly awkward between you both.
Sounds like the perfect thing for a first date right?
What I mean by this is doing something where the attention is away the two of you.
This could be going to an art gallery, the zoo, or even ten pin bowling. Firstly, as you’re actually out doing something, you’re going to find far more to talk about.
And secondly, it’s far more relaxed and casual so you can quite easily wander off for a moment or two to look at something.
I often think that people convince themselves that they’re terrible at dates, when in reality they just set themselves up for it with bad, conventional ideas.
Just because that’s all anyone else ever does, doesn’t mean you have to do it too.
