Girls Shared What They Think Are The Best Activities For A First Date So Get Ready To Take Notes
Unlike most “Ask Reddits” today’s topic might be of actual use to us bros somewhere down the road. Instead of weird stories of masturbation or roommate horror stories, today we learn straight from the female mouth, “Girls of Reddit: what do you think are the best activities for a first date?”
Here are some of the top responses to help all you Casanovas out the next time you are lucky enough to hook up….
I like anything with an activity built in so if you get a bit of awkward silence you can just pretend to be concentrating on whatever. i.e. cooking class together, ice skating, that kind of stuff. Even if the date sucks, maybe you learned to cook polenta. ~ punnettsquaresrule
Bowling. You can enjoy a few beers, laugh at how bad you are together and check out their butt without them seeing you. Win win! ~ PsychTest
The zoo. Lots to talk about. You’re not just sitting face to face chatting. Its amusing. This was our first date and stayed together 10 years. ~ falulaflowers
Anything you can focus on fully OR talk while half-assing. Either way, it allows for good flow. Things like: Pool/billiards/snooker, mini-golf, walking, attending a food festival or fair, wine/beer/food tasting, canoeing, fishing, darts, zoo/aquarium. ~ elligirl
It depends on how well you know the person and how comfortable you are with them, but one guy took me to an escape room for our first date, and then for board games at a cafe.
We had a great time, and I was very impressed.
EDIT: I live in Toronto. An escape room is a game where a small group (2-8ish people) get locked in a room and have to use the clues in the room to solve puzzles in order to escape. You have about an hour to get out. ~ lucciolaa
I do coffee. Can end really quickly if it’s going sour, or it can be prolonged if it’s going well. ~ PartyAtGatsbys
Hiking! You get to wander with someone, have good conversation, and enjoy being outside. Hiking dates are always my favorite dates. ~ mamyd
A state or county fair! There’s so much to do and see, like food and rides. You can even hint at wanting a stuffed animal and he could try winning it for you. It sounds cliche, but I swear it’s super fun. ~ ellelta
