Ok, you've found someone online that you really like and they like you too. You'd like to meet face-to-face...now what?
One of best and worst things about singles meeting via Internet is return of old-fashioned first dates - with added concern of personal safety when meeting a virtual stranger. Picking a place to meet, an activity to share, things to talk about - it can seem a bit overwhelming especially when you really want to make a good impression.
Here are some unique first date ideas that will keep you out of "dinner and a movie rut" and set your first date apart from rest:
A Picnic In The Park Eliminate pressure of a Saturday night date by enjoying relaxed atmosphere of a public park on a Sunday afternoon. Pack a basket of "finger foods" like cheese, fruit, crackers and chocolates and a chilled bottle of sparkling cider. For that extra special touch include china plates, crystal glasses and cloth napkins. The two of you can search out perfect spot beneath a shade tree to enjoy your picnic, do some people watching and get to know each other.
Root For The Home Team Sporting events are a great place to have a great time and provide a fun and relaxed atmosphere for a first date. No matter what season, there's always something going on in world of sports and if cost of tickets to a professional game isn't in your budget high school, college and minor league games are just as much fun.
Window Shopping You can stroll for hours in a shopping mall or a city's shopping district stopping here and there for a cup of coffee or an ice cream cone. And if you get tired of just looking in windows, there's always browsing through racks at a music store, trying on hats and wasting a few quarters in a video arcade.
