Women love a man who goes above and beyond to create a memorable experience. While dinner and a movie still reign supreme as the ultimate first date pick, many women will tell you this is like an invitation to a yawn-fest. Think outside the box.

Invite her to the local planetarium, take her to Dave and Busters for an evening of fun or go for a game of miniature golf. The zoo, an art museum, a historical attraction or even a day at a theme park are all fantastic first date ideas.

Remember, when you ask a woman out, you want to wow her with your originality and sense of adventure. Keep in mind, however, if you come up with an over-the-top date idea, you should run it by her first to make sure it’s a good one. If she has motion sickness, for instance, she won’t want to hop on a roller coaster!
