Some people have sleepless nights trying to plan a perfect first date. The secret is not to overdo it. First dates are supposed to be casual.


Nobody wants to be overwhelmed by someone they just met, so you need to ease into it with basic everyday things that will make your date comfortable and willing to open up.

Here are a few helpful tips.

Grab a bite together 


Breakfast, lunch or dinner. That’s up to you. Get to know each other over food. Everyone likes food. Or to spice it up, try a new place to excite your taste buds and give you both something to talk about.

Dancing lessons

Sign up for an hour of dancing lessons. It’ll be better if both of you are beginners. A learning experience between two people is a great and efficient way to bond quickly. She or he will find it funny even if you’re a terrible dancer so why not.


Karaoke bar

Drinks and music. Match made in heaven. Head to a karaoke bar and rock it out like a superstar. The secret it to let loose and have fun. The person you’re with will get a glimpse of how fun you are, and if you nail it, you’ll probably get a second date.

Cook a meal together

It’s easy to go out and eat. Challenge yourself, buy ingredients and hijack a complicated recipe from the internet. Even if you both mess it up and have to eat noodles at the end, it’ll be a memory both of you will never forget.



Nothing like the great outdoors right? Stay active, engage the wild, break a sweat and watch you bond faster than super glue.

Amusement park/carnival

People are most comfortable when excited. They get to express themselves in their bubbly form. What better way to get excited than an amusement park or a carnival. This way, both of you get to play together and share tons of laughs. Can’t start better than this.



With a variety of animals to look at, there will always be something to talk about. So if you’re worried you’ll have nothing to talk about, head to the zoo. The monkeys have your back.


A movie is perfect and is one of the most common date plans. With a movie, you get to have an idea of a person’s interests. What makes them laugh, what makes them cry, and the opinions they have about life.
