Deciding where to go on a first date can be a taxing experience. You want to make sure it’s someplace that both of you will enjoy. You also want to make sure that you’re choosing a place that doesn’t put too much pressure on either of you. An expensive restaurant that serves you a four-course meal may be too much for the two of you. In fact, we think that when it comes to a first date, you should skip the fancy and go straight to the familiar.
Visit a Coffee Shop
Going to dinner and a movie doesn’t always have to be the type of first date that you come to rely on. There are plenty of different things and places for you to visit on a first date. One of those things would be to visit a coffee shop. A coffee shop is a perfect place for a first date. Typically, you won’t have to worry about calling in reservations or waiting several minutes to be seated. A coffee shop is also offers a relaxed atmosphere that will help the two of you become comfortable with each other quicker than you would at dinner. Another great thing about a coffee shop is that it allows the two of you to go your separate ways if you find that you aren’t really into each other. Neither of you will feel the stress or awkwardness of cutting things short.
Even the aroma of a coffee shop plays an important role during a first date. One of you may not even like coffee, but the smell of it can be calming and can help relax both of you. It also helps to put both of you in a better mood. The last thing you want to do is be in a bad mood on a date, and the smell of roasted coffee can definitely help erase any ill feelings or thoughts.
Visit a Dessert Shop
Taking women to a dessert shop for a first date may seem strange to some people. In fact, most people wouldn’t consider it a date at all. However, one important thing to remember about desserts is that most of them are packed with sugar and sugar can definitely put people in a good mood. It also will show her that you won’t her to have a good time and don’t care about what type of food she eats. Many times women believe that they have to only eat a tiny amount of food so that men won’t think that they are greedy or have the potential of becoming fat. When you take her to a dessert shop on a first date, she will automatically feel comfortable with you because she will know that these things aren’t important to you.
First dates are already stressful enough. Don’t make them harder by going someplace that makes the two of you feel awkward and uncomfortable. Instead, go somewhere where the two of you can relax and unwind so that you focus more on getting to know each other and less on how uncomfortable you feel out of your element.
