    Ok blokes, here's the deal. Instead of going to church this Sunday, I was a bad boy and went to a pool party and met this super cute guy. There is no doubt this guy is into me and exchanged numbers and facebook( This I am kinda regretting now). Well we tee'd up our first date this coming thursday.

    I am almost never nervous when it comes to first dates as I am usually confident. For the first time I am feeling the pressure and told me we should make it a creative date, plus dinner of course. Because of my nervous eccentricities since I met this bloke, I can't think of anything creative. This is where you come in!!

    Any ideas anyone? No sex though, I don't plan to make this a hookup. Thanks mates!

    Well, since your profile is basically blank, there's no way to know what you are into to make a sound recommendation.

    Best suggestion (if you asked him out and are in charge of making the plans) is to do something YOU love to do, so he can get to know you better. It shows confidence, plus it will give him a chance to see the real you and decide if he likes it.

    I had a "first date" not long ago, and that's exactly what I did. There was a movie I wanted to see, so we did. Then, I took him to a restaurant I like. Then (since things were going well), I winged it for the rest of the day (I ended up taking him to a Lithuanian Festival here in the city - we stumbled on it, and I like spontaneity). We ended up back at my place talking for hours...it was awesome.

    I love doing things sorta adventurous on any date but especially first dates. Something like kayaking, hiking, go-carts, rollercoaster, etc. and grab something to eat afterwards.

    maybe introduce him to something you like to do that is fun? I remember one time this guy took me to an art gallery once because cause he was really in to photography and paintings... then we went to see a symphony concert because he knew I played cell... and then grabbed a bite to eat. We were going to call it a night right there but my godmother called and invited us to her B-Day party at the club so we went hah.. (my g'mother is 3yrs younger than me... I was just baptized btw.)

    although I don't go often ... I would not mind a first " date " to involve hiking of some sort ... some sort of physically challenging element. that way, we can let our bodies communicate - sans sex - and also help each as we go along. pushing each other and seeing how you and him communicate can be done this way.

    suit your fancy: go running ... kayak ... sit in a tree over a nice picnic of sorts ... either sail or row around a university campus ... indoor climb ... play a series of chess matches and the loser (best out of a fixed set of games buys an inexpensive dinner) ... use your imagination for those primary dates so that he'll have someone to think of when he is idle.

    good luck.

    Sur la Table, the kitchen store on West Gray, has in-store cooking classes that are supposed to be fun.

    I don't live in TX but maybe paintball. I always wanted to try that even though I have horrible aim. If you are creative do a painting, arts and craft lesson. Most crafty places have those classes quite often. You can also check your local paper for any interesting events going on that week that maybe a fun activity. Good luck!

    This seems fairly simple. Look at his facebook page, find out his interests and things he's passionate and excited about and that should give you a good idea of something that's both creative and something that he'll like.

    Hmmm - being in Texas sounds like you should either go to the rodeo if there is one nearby or a Dallas Cowboys practice. Everybody feels special after they've seen them nekkid in the lockerroom.

    Hell otherwise tell him to go to an internet café somewhere and you go to an internet café somewhere and you do it via world of warcraft and then have dinner after (irl)

    I would also recommend doing something you haven't done before. Let him know you are willing to try new things and can laugh at yourself. Some very good traitsicon_smile.gif

    Well, you're his FB friend now, right? What sort of interests does he have? Maybe you can surprise him by doing something around something he enjoys.
