What's your idea of a good first date?

Something very casual that allows conversation to happen. No point being distracted by activities! The idea is to get to know each other.
For me, it would have to be with someone who has the same likes as I do.
I love Art.
So I would say The Art Gallery of N.S.W. in Sydney....we can have interaction looking at the Art...talking...people around, it all makes it go smoothly. No moments of ''what do I say''?

As long as he likes Art, it would be a wonderful place, and they have a great place to eat there too!

Definitely. A first date should at least test the waters of compatability, methinks. Art galleries and museums are perfect for interesting conversation. Good call :-))

A late afternoon stroll in the park. We can have food from the food vendors and sit on a park bench. Its a low pressure situation and we can just talk and laugh.
There is no such thing for me because the idea of a date to me is completely repulsive.
Repulsive? I don't understand.
by jonaja
I don't think other people going on dates is repulsive, but I would never want to go on a date with someone, and would find it quite a horrid experience.
Bryony, don't wish to pry but I do have to admit I'm curious as to, what makes it repulsive for a person. For example, bad experienecs in the past perhaps?, or simply not interested in a relationship or prefer to be single/"own boss" so to speak. Or perhaps "date" conjures up images of uncomfortable formal situations where everything just seems fake etc ? Is it just the definition of what constitutes a "date" that people differ on - that is one person might define a "date" as being where two people spend time with each other vs others who define a date as something more intentional where the parties are expected to consider potential committed relationships, and so on. Don't mean to offend nor expect to you to respond if you don't feel comfortable doing so. Just curious, that's all...

Hi Kimp

I'm not offended at all. In terms of definition, I consider a first date where to people who are romantically attracted to one another go out together in order to learn about one another and potentiallly pursue a relationship. Since I am an asexual, I find any such kind of meeting repulsive.
A movie would be nice, followed by a snack or a drink, somewhere you can have a good chat.
Definitely not white water rafting . . . in case of drowning or throwing up. Also, a near death experience can put a damper on things. See a Shakespeare play . . .that'll sort the chaff from the wheat. (you might get dinner too) ^_^

I like jonaj and Rice's ideas. You would think I had an answer of my own given that I posted the question, but I haven't given this a lot of thought. I only had one real first date. My now husband took me ice-skating. I was petrified. Knowing I hadn't done it before, he was betting I would have to hold onto him for support - that's my bet - LOL.

My idea of a first date would be casual, maybe a walk on the beach and going for coffee afterwards, and hopefully the man in question has a good sense of humour and can make me laugh, as well as being romantic.
