    so, as corny as it sounds what is your ideal date? For me, I think anything unconventional like rock climbing or go-cart racing hene

    It depends on what you mean by first date ... if it is someone I have already met and sort of know and have asked out on a date, then I think a nice dinner ... hikes and such are better for second dates. If it is someone you are meeting for the first time, then you need time to get to know them so you want to keep it active, but quiet, like maybe a museum or coffee or lunch.

    Agree with the second poster, a good first date should be in a place which is relatively quiet so you can hear each other and talk face to face. The emphasis of it should be more on talking & getting to know each other than anything else. That's why other activities like rock climbing or seeing a movie could detract from that main emphasis.

    Just keep it simple - go out to a nice restaurant or have a coffee somewhere. If you wanted to keep it outdoors you could maybe go to the beach or a park just make sure the emphasis is on TALKING!

    Good luck icon_biggrin.gif

    When he tells me that the other guys on the Brazilian volleyball team are also curious about being with a guy and wonder if I can come back to the training camp and show them a thing or two...

    Since I would usually just go on a date with someone I have already met, I think dinner on a first date is always a good idea. I would prefer in a restaurant rather than at someone's house for the first date since there isn't as much of a "we are having sex tonight" undertone. Dinner is great because it is more intimate and facilitates conversation. Then if it goes well you can extend it to maybe drinks or a walk or something and if it goes poorly you can cut it off right after you eat.

    I prefer dates after the first date to be less "conventional". If the first date goes well, an afternoon and/or evening at Six Flags if they like roller coasters like I do would be great. You can walk around and talk in lines, but have fun on the coasters. Also, a sunset picnic at the park would be nice. In winter, ice skating would be a fun thing to do together, or maybe walk through the botanical gardens and look at lights. These are all clearly ideas for Atlanta...

    I've heard unconventional fun first dates are more successfully. That way they always correlate you with fun.

    That was before exchanging names and numbers, as it should be.

    As much as I thought about dating, I never thought about the first date.icon_eek.gif

    For a first date ideally we would meet up somewhere like a pier or beach. Walk around and talk for a while. Then grab some lunch. Maybe go to an arcade then a movie. And finish the day off by playing some video games at home, and maybe getting some take-out.

    Obviously I need to know if this guy is any good at video games. If he is, we'll hit it off, if not then I have alot to teach himicon_wink.gif.

    But the most important thing to me is learning about him. I find co-op games to be very showing of a person's nature. (Either they are enjoying the game and having fun regardless of what happens, enjoying it just because we are together, or control freaks who blame you when anything goes wrong) That may just be me thoughicon_redface.gif

    I've never been on a date really so I can't imagine. The ideas about getting to know each other and talking makes sense. I might be nervous as hell to go on a date with a stranger. It seems like guys have all these expectations about a date and I don't think I would be any good at it lol.

    This might sound weird coming from me, but...

    While I agree that going somewhere for dinner is in my opinion the best idea for a first date, I somewhat disagree with the idea of it being a "nice" restaurant. Don't get me wrong, I think it should be a good restaurant with awesome food, but an expensive steak house or something like that is inappropriate - it sets too high of a standard and puts too much pressure on the situation.

    I actually like really good pizza places for a first date.

    This might be the one and only thing I agree with him.

    I get it, nice restaurant, good foods come with high price and you want the night to be dazzling but you don't know anything about him or his financial situation. Its best to pick some place casual and quiet so the two of you can get talk and mingle.

    It's fun to challenge yourselves and actually DO something on a first date. Meet up for a run, a hike, sailing, a top-down convertible drive along the coast, or a run for a couple of miles on the beach - right at water's edge. Get down and have some fun together. Then, get showered and dressed - and go to dinner someplace good - maybe with outside seating - even an outdoor fireplace if possible. Then - in a good setting, you can kick back - look at each other and laugh a bit about what fun you had earlier.

    This way, you get to see what the other guy is made of, and you get to decide if there is going to be a second date. I'm very active, and for me - if a guy would be up for hanging with me and doing some fun (and strenuous) activities before we sit down to eat, then it's all good. I'm thinking he's an active guy into having some fun.

    First date= get to know the person. They might not be your type. If you do not know them well, you are wasting your time and fooling yourself. I guess unless you have time to spend.
