Updated on February 5, 2019

You might have finally got your girl to agree to go on a date with you and now is the real deal. What are you going to do on the first date? You are nervous, you want to impress her and you also do not want to make it look over romantic. If you have a hot date coming up and are wondering what to actually do, here are some tips that will help you impress the girl.

Plan the date around her interests

Personalization is indeed the key here. Girls love the idea of having some plan the first date based on their interests. You need to pick up clues from the text messages or social media platforms and plan a similar date keeping their interests at the forefront. It will make the girl feel special and loved. 

Drinks and movies always work

If you are someone who is not sure what your date is into, you can always choose a movie, drinks and maybe a walk after that. The drinks will get you talking and a movie will break up the convo. Depending on the vibe you have with the person, you can decide to go on a walk. If nothing, you can discuss the movie on the walk. Louisa Knight has some fun ideas for a first date for you. 

If the date is not into drinks, grab some treats

There will be many who might not enjoy drinking on the first date. However, there is no one who is not fond of tasty treats. You can pick an outdoor food market or a big food venue where you can try different things together. 

An art show is very romantic

There are a number of exhibitions and art shows happening across the city. You can have dinner or grab a few drinks and then head to an art show. It could be an ideal mix of fun and romance. 

No need to spend a bomb

You might have thought that the first date will burn a hole in your pocket but no, do not worry about spending a lot of money to have a good time. You can simply take a stroll along the beach and it could be absolutely special and romantic for your date. 

Plan a brunch

For many women, drinks and dinner are no longer fun. Brunch is their idea of a first date and if you do not enjoy their company over brunch, you need to think again if they are the one. 

Keep in mind that an ideal first date will begin with being comfortable in one another’s company. You need to be honest and relax in front of your date. Do not put too much pressure on yourself and allow the conversation to flow easily. Choose a comfortable place where you can have a conversation and get to know each other. Never go drunk on your first date. Dress well and look sharp for your date.
