There is a viral list of 28 places women don’t want to go on a first date. And there are some quite surprising places on the list.
First dates can set the tone for the relationship. It’s time to see if there’s any chemistry and if you want to pursue the relationship further. And let’s be honest, first dates can be nerve-wracking. Especially if you really like the person. You want to make a great impression.
And a big part of the first date? It’s where you go. Are you going to take them to a casual dining spot? Or maybe opt for something a little more interactive? And of course, there’s always the movies… or maybe not!
Worst Places For A First Date
The list of worst places to go for a first date that’s going around features a mixture of specific restaurants and other activities. While it’s not in the top 10, things like going out for ice cream or coffee date are a no-go. Also, bowling, nightclubs, hookah bars, and any bar “just for drinks” are also on the list of places you shouldn’t take your date.
One item on the list is “anywhere that requires a long drive.” This one makes sense though if you think about it. First of all, you’ll have a long way to ride before even arriving at the destination, and you don’t want to sit in silence. This has a potential to be great for getting to know each other. Or, it could be really awkward trying to fill the silence.
And what if the date doesn’t go well? Then you’re stuck riding all the way back together.
Response To The List
There has been quite the debate on this list with some saying it basically covers everything and has them questioning what is acceptable for a first date. But others are pointing out that the list highlights boring, stale ideas and this encourages you to get creative with planning out the first date.
What’s funny is, it wasn’t too long ago that Chris O’Kelley asked listeners for the best places to go on a first date here in Augusta… and some of those top 6 places are on this list. Hmmm… Maybe we should re-think our first date spots?
