Doll, this blog, is also a dating blog. Yup, you can find dating articles here. As a matter of fact, you’re reading one right now. As a guy who was once single, I went on my share of dates. I learned where to go to have great dates, and not where to go that would/could lead to bad dates.
Below are the three best places to go on a date. Here’s one surefire tip I can give you right away: Movies, events (sports, music) are not great places for dates. Why? Because, what you really want to do on a date is talk to the person you’re interested in. It’s hard to do that while watching an action movie, or screaming at the top of your lungs at a concert or a football game. Trust me on this.
The 3 best places to go on a date are:
Coffee shops: As I mentioned before, what you want to do is a have a conversation with your date. Get to know them. A nice coffee shop is perfect for that. And not necessarily a chain coffee shop, but one that’s independently owned. They usually have a cozy vibe, and that can help relax the both of you, so you can have a great convo. A nice cup of java, some mood music, and truly open dialogue is a great combo for a date.
Hole-in-the-wall bar/restaurants: Once again, you may want to forget about going to a major chain eatery for a date. They operate by serving you, and then getting you up outta their establishments so they can make as much money as they can. It’s not so brutal with more mom and pop-ish places. You can actually eat, drink and talk (at bars…and restaurants, too) without worrying about rushing your date.
A small party: You read that right. A small party is a great place for a date. It’s not as loud as a blowout party, nor as crazy. You can talk, have fun, and actually observe the person you’re dating that night. You can see if they mingle easily with other party guests, or they are awkward with others (that may not be a bad thing…especially for introverts). You can learn a lot about a person in social situations.
Maybe next time, I’ll give you the three worst places to go on a date.
