Go to a coffee shop on a first date.
A coffee shop is quiet and laid back, providing the ideal environment to have conversations and hear each other.
A first date mustn’t be too much too soon.
Stick with environments that don’t have major distractions.
Going to loud environments like a nightclub, movie theater or concert on a first date, is a challenging approach for a first date.
Focusing on the person you are with when there are so many people bumping into you at a concert is a challenge.
Hard to hear what is being said when loud music is blasting through eardrums.
Meanwhile, a movie theater provides little time to have a conversation.
A good first date is free of redundant distractions.
Save those for later.
This early, talking to each other without distractions is priority.
Besides a coffee shop, a good first date is a tranquil walk in the park.
Similar to a coffee shop, a park is a conducive environment to conversation.
It’s quiet and there are few distractions.
Take your walk together, stop at a bench for a break and take in the scenery.
The goal of the first date is to establish rapport and chemistry.
A first date is a step towards knowing whether there is an authentic connection and without doing it in the right environment, you do yourself a disservice.
You don’t have to do anything extravagant on your first date.
Extending from the park idea, how about a walk on a pier or a beach.
This adds scenery to your first date and provides a great feeling of being around such beauty.
Human beings are visual.
Beauty elicits a good mood.
Scenery aids with conversation.
Wherever there is a lag in conversation, the scenery is ripe as a source of conversation to fill in the lag.
Have a picnic somewhere for a first date.
Pick a scenic spot in your town to set up your picnic.
A place that is peaceful and photogenic.
It doesn’t have to be the traditional park, set it up anywhere.
A beautiful spot that overlooks your city is a great choice.
The picnic doesn’t have to be elaborate.
Some fruit, chocolate, vegetables, cheese, and wine, works.
Like the other suggestions, a picnic eschews overbearing distractions.
The tranquility is palpable.
A first date of mini golf works too.
Although it’s a sport, it’s much less strenuous of a sport than many others.
Conversation flows without distractions as you two play and have fun.
The activity provides a topic of discussion when there are lags in conversation.
It’s tranquil and laid back.
This is the environment that works best.
