Great First Date Ideas That Are Sure To Impress Without Making You Broke



By David N Kamau

Whether you're on a blind date with a friend of a co-worker, or you're meeting with a special connection you met on an online dating website, great first date ideas can assure you a second, third and beyond. The key is finding a unique, engaging, idea that will leave your potential beau wanting more. The perfect first outing requires a balance of conversation time, and distraction, with the right atmosphere that conveys intimacy.

The zoo is a fantastic date idea for animal lovers. A couple is afforded lots of conversation time, as they walk from exhibit to exhibit. Take special note of your potential partner's favorite animal. Aquariums offer the same benefits of a zoo excursion, but can be even more romantic, with the sounds of water and dim lighting.

Skip the formal restaurant outing, and go for sushi! Sushi can be an adventurous meal, and seeing what your partner is willing to try will give you a better sense of the kind of person they are. Going out for sushi is a fun spin on the traditional dinner that gives you ample time for learning more about your partner in an interesting environment.

Living close to tourist attractions, we can forget how special they can be. Many of us haven't even visited our local monuments, museums or attractions in years, and an outing where you play the tourist can be a fun spin on a night, or day, out on the town. Take your friend to the local amusement park, the great architectural wonders of your city, or make a day of it and visit several locations in a tourist tour of your home city.

The swap meet is an active adventure that combines a good outing with the love of a great deal. Walking the stalls will give you ample time to speak with your new friend about all the interesting items that vendors have for sale. Impress your new friend with your haggling skills (but don't over-do it!), all while finding the hottest deals in town.

For a casual yet intimate time, try the good old-fashioned picnic. Picnics are a classic excursion that allows you to display your culinary creations catered to your friend's favorite taste sensations. Furthermore, the impressive amount of locations to picnic at assures you the perfect location for this age-old dating favorite.

Dancing the night away is one of the best great first date ideas, and a dancing lesson is a good opportunity to learn something new while learning more about your new friend. Dancing lessons can bring a pair closer together, and dancing is a great way to burn calories and showcase your energy. Dance lessons are an economical first date that's sure to impress.
