Great memories are often made by either really enjoying an experience together or by not enjoying it at all. This is what most men should keep in mind while they start planning for the much dreaded and for that reason, highly expected, first date. Behind really successful first dates is actually incredible creativity or incredible spontaneity or simplicity. Remember the goal of the first date; you must engage with your date in a meaningful conversation, getting to know them, showing that you are thoughtful and at the same time keeping it fun and casual, something that both parties might enjoy and not expect much out of it. But, if your plan is to impress the woman, then going for something unique is what you require.
Tip #1 – Be Spontaneous
For one of the above mentioned options, spontaneity, there is something rather unique that you can do. For example, take the day’s newspaper and see what band is playing in town that day or what show is on the theater. Don’t worry about who or what is playing, just get tickets and take your date. It could go either way, really; you would either have a great time and love what’s playing or you will hate it and remember the first date as something funny and memorable. Later, you can bond over the experience of the first date. And hey, if it goes bad, it gives you a chance to make up for it.
While keeping in mind spontaneity, you should remember that doing things that you have already done before might turn out to be not such a good experience. Talk to your date before the big day and ask about things that she hasn’t ever tried. Tango? Salsa classes? Cooking class? Think about what you haven’t done ever before and sign up for something like this for the first date. It’s a good experience where both of you will be equally inexperienced and will let your competitiveness and inhibitions down. It would also make for a really fun day doing something completely outrageous. It is a good bonding experience to do something with another person that is a new thing for the both you, and your older female date. Who knows, you guys could end up making some of the best memories together.
The key to keeping it spontaneous is to be open to new experiences and new relationships, very much like your first date.
