Whether you’ve been out of the closet for six months or six years, planning a killer first date is a must. After all, you only have one chance to make a great first impression. No matter if this is a blind date or a first one-on-one meeting following an online relationship, here are five first date ideas to knock his socks off.
Depending on your local terrain, plan a romantic picnic with artisan cheeses, croissants, cured meats and wine. Bring him to a beautiful area of where you live and set it up complete with music and candles. This gives the two of you a lot of quiet time to talk and get to know each other.
Even for people who don’t think they’re “artsy,” visiting a museum or gallery opening is not only a way to gain culture, it also helps create dialogue for two people who have never been on a date together. There are conversation starters around every corner!
If, and only if, you know your guy enjoys outdoor activities, then plan a hike, a paddle boarding session, a road trip, or bike ride. Follow up with a relaxed dinner at an outdoor cafe — somewhere it won’t matter if the two of you are a little bit sweaty.
Choosing a concert for a first date can be tricky, but it can also be a “hole in one.” If possible, choose an outdoor concert. Bonus points if you’re allowed to bring a blanket and picnic.
If it has to be an indoor show, then choose something mellow where you can get a few words in over the amps.
Be spontaneous and ask him to meet you at the local pier to watch the sunset. Bring a bottle of champagne, something to nosh on and arm yourself with some interesting local history, such as a shipwreck, doomed love affair among sailors or anything cool that’s washed up on the shore. Even if you’re landlocked, I’m sure you can find a park or a nature trail with a good view of the sun setting.
Watch the sunset, visit a local art exhibit, or go for a hike — just put some thought into it.
