Where To Go On A First Date

So, you’re finally ready to meet the dude/gal you’ve been video chatting with, IRL, but where to go, what to do?
The worst thing you can do on a first date is go to dinner. Dinner is likely to take at least an hour and a half and it’s impossible to politely escape if it ends up being a total flop. Not only are you likely going to have to wait for a table (unless he’s taking you to a cheap-o place with no wait or he was thoughtful enough to make reservations), but she/he might order an appetizer which will add at least 20 minutes to the experience. And then, what if they order dessert?!
Keep the first date short and simple. Coffee is the best, lunch if you’re pretty sure that he/she is at least semi-normal (you really never know, it’s too easy to be uber anonymous on the internet).
It’s up to you, but remember, you can always go back for more if you haven’t had your fill of said hottie on date number one.dating tips first date how to date online dating
