Somewhere out there in the "Land of Love" there is a couple or 10 who are trying to decide on the perfect first date. Eons ago, when I first started dating, it was expected and rather traditional for the first date to consist of dinner and a movie.
Let's fast forward to a new century. Since my first date, many things have transpired and I've kicked a many guy to the curb because the first date was all wrong. The traditional dinner and a movie hoopla are a no-no for me. I mean who wants to sit next to a stranger between 90-120 minutes risk his hands, hot breath, and weird vibes. *lowers hand - NOT ME. Therefore, I encourage short, trendy first dates to simply gauge what's what. You may have found Mr. What's His Name via online, a hook up, by chance or stalking; either way, the first date is important.
My suggestions are; coffee shops, book stores, a "vibing" lounge, happy hour, a tech bar, or appetizers at the hip restaurant. First dates should be quick and fun. Most sane people can determine general character and vibes. Why plan for a long drawn out date for a maybe? Why chance it? Who has that type of time?
What's your idea of a great first date? What did you do with your catch?
