When you plan first dates you want to ensure your date enjoys a good time with you and that it might lead to a second one.

Some of the things one should have in mind when taking someone on a date is that the place you pick out on the first day will be your first impression. 

First impressions matter, you have to pull that off.

There are nice places and activities you can do other than boring, dinner dates that are to make things fun and less awkward.

Here are some of the ideas you can add to your first dates;

  • Coffee date

On a first date, you can decide to go out of your way and do the most ambiguous date or just opt for something simple.

A coffee date is a simple way to get to know someone as you’ll enjoy something that you both like and this is a good start off.

  • Visit an escape room

This would be an interesting way to get to know someone by hitting up an escape room. 

You’ll see how your date behaves when under pressure and if they can come up with a solution.

Other than that it will be fun to enjoy each other's company and it will lessen the tension.

  • Go to an arcade

Visiting an arcade will show you your date’s personality. This will give an insight into who your date is and if you are compatible or one another.
