So, you were swiping tinder or Happn and met somebody you felt like asking out. Now you are confused as to where you should go and what you should do on your very first date so that you can make it to the second one. Dating should be fun but it does mean just sitting at the bar and getting up hungover next morning, or walking into a coffee shop with a boring conversation. Candle light dinners are again too cliché and boring.
If you want your date to be fun and memorable so that your date can’t wait to see you again, you need to give your best the first time around. To help you with that, we have made a list of first date ideas to give your date a kick-start.

1. Head to a stand up comedy show

The ultimate key to your date’s heart is not an expensive meal or a bunch of flower. It’s making them laugh. Laughing together is the best possible thing that can happen on a date. So, make the task easier by taking your date to a live comedy show. Most towns have Indie stand up nights every week, be it at a comedy club or in a pub. Enjoy some drinks and at the same time get ready for a fun date.

6. Pub hopping (only if you are 25 or above)

Chatting with a couple of drinks will make sure the mood is relaxed and will help dispel the inevitable first date anxiety. Try choosing a quiet bar or pub as there is no better idea if your date likes to drink and chat. A crowded bar wouldn’t be a great idea to chat.
