Picking the Right Place for Your Date
There are a number of reasons I stress the importance of the place you choose for your date. First, you don't want to take your date to a place they are not interested in. You must both choose a place that you mutually agree on. If your date suggests that the two of you go to a place that you're not comfortable with, you should not be afraid to let them know this. If you go to a place that makes you uncomfortable, it can damage the date. It will also show that you have poor communication skills, because you failed to make it clear that you didn't want to go there.
To pick the best place for a date, you must first understand the interests of both you and your partner. For example, if either you or your partner hates sports, does it make sense to buy tickets to a sports event? If you or your partner hate being in large crowds, does it make sense to attend a crowded party? It is critical that you choose a date that perfectly matches the interest of both you and your partner. If the two of you cannot come to a consensus on where you want to go, this may be a sign that the two of you are not compatible with each other. The reason I say this is because if you both have similar interests, it should be easy for you to choose a suitable location for your date.
An art gallery is a great place for those who are intellectual or have artistic interests. Another good place for these types of people is the library or bookstore. Many couples choose a dinner and a movie. If you do this, pick a movie that the both of you are equally interested in. The same goes for food. A dinner and a movie is a classic form of dating, and it is a great way for the two of you to get to know each other better. You may not want to go to an expensive restaurant on your first date, unless this is something both of you agree on. Another good place for couples is a nice park or garden. You can sit and talk about various topics while enjoying the company of each other.
A classic place for intellectuals is the museum. This is a quiet place where the two of you can talk about the various exhibitions that are being presented it. Those who enjoy being in large crowds may want to go to concerts, sporting events, or even clubs. If you both like to shopping, you can spend a day going to various stores.
