Dating is a hot topic for teens and young adults alike. For teens it's often the first exploration into male and female relationships while for young adults it may often be a prelude to marriage. As adults we all remember well that nervous feeling on our first date. This guide should serve to help teens and young adults alike as they venture into the dating world.
First dates are a great way to get to know one another. First dates should be creative even impromptu if one is trying to set their date solidly into their dates memory banks. This doesn't mean that a disaster should ensue to be memorable, rather in contrast that the date should be a happy and memorable time.
So what should one do on a first date? Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
Do you speak a foreign language? If so, here's your chance to do a little bit of showing off and still have fun. Step into an ethnic restaurant with your date and help your date order in the language of your restaurant choice. For even more fun speak only that language while you're in the restaurant.
If you don't speak a foreign language, you can always pretend you do and that you don't read English. Just try not to get too many giggles as your poor waiter or waitress attempts to assist you in ordering your meal.
If the weather is nice go to a local park or recreation area and rent a bicycle for two. You'll have fun getting to know your date on this contraption and get some great exercise as well. Don't forget to stop for ice cream or soda's after your work out.
Take a trip to the local zoo. Your date will be on a safari adventure with this one. Pack a picnic lunch or stop by a local fast food place en route and enjoy your meal among the wilds of the jungle. This is a great way to learn more about your date and spend time amongst the animals.
Go fly a kite. Kite's can be great fun once you get them up in the air. Guaranteed your date will remember the fun you both have trying to accomplish this.
Go to a vintage or second hand clothing store and buy some vintage clothing and then go out to a local restaurant all dressed up in your brand "new" outfits. Or better yet, have one of your moms fix a nice meal for you two at one of your homes and pretend its a night out on the town.
Watch an old silent movie (or turn the sound off of an old movie) and make up a story between the two of you of what is going on. See how creative you can get.
Go to a local park and remember how it was to be a kid. Swing on the swings, slide on the slide, play in the sand and have a great time.
Love between a male and female is a precious gift. Many seek it and yet it seems in this day and age that few fully achieve it. First dates are a great way to explore your friendship and see if you truly are compatible for having a future life together.
