What are some fun things to do for a first date?

I asked a girl I'm really fond of on a date. she said yes, and I need tips on what would be fun for us to do. I'd like to cook for her, but what kinds of meals are considered 'romantic?' Also, what kinds of activities would be fun for after dinner that a girl would like to do with her boyfriend? She's 16 and I'm 17, so no alcohol or anything like that will be a good idea. I really do like her and would like to make a good impression.

Some fun things to do on a first date are dancing, watching a movie or playing board games. You can also go swimming; go to the park or rock climbing. Check out other fun things to do at http://www.discoverfun.com/freeinfo/500fun/love-dating.html.

Don't cook for her quite yet, that's definitely third date material. But when you do, do something simple, but use really good ingredients, like tortellini with a nice home made alfredo sauce. A good first date has enough things going on to avoid having to talk all the time, but not so much that you can't talk if you want to. Things like fairs, carnivals, museums, art galleries, or just a walk through a cool part of town with stops for coffee and gelato. Once you know each other more and you are comfortable being together with nothing to do but talk, then go for the dinner date.

I think art galleries would be awesome and coffee sounds really nice. As far as cooking, the only reason I'm really doing that is because she really wanted me to. She'd be asking me to since even before I asked her on a date, and she really wanted me to for our date. Should I maybe ask her if she'd just be ok going for a stroll? I don't want to upset her, but at the same time, you're right. That might be a bit too early for dinner.

Well, I happen to be a chef, so try this; Cook tortellini to the instructions, rinse with cold water till cool, then set aside. Cook 4 strips of bacon, chop them into small pieces, and set aside as well. Do these things first, (the guys in the funny suits call this "mise en place", and having the pasta and bacon cooked and chopped means you have more time to devote to your date, I have cooked for a dozen women, and you need to be sure she never feels what you are working on is more important than her. When it is time for dinner, heat a good sized frying pan to a bit above medium heat, toss in 1/2 a cup of heavy cream, and get it boiling, add the tortellini and bacon, salt, fresh ground pepper, fresh basil if you have it, and three fine cut green onions. Cook it till the cream has reduced by about half, then add a little parmesan. Serve it with some nice "mocktails", like ginger ale and pineapple juice garnished with strawberry slices. For dessert, I like vanilla yoghurt (shows you are health conscious), with some lemon pound cake, sliced mango and a couple of werthers toffees crushed fine in a bag a sprinkled over it. Good luck, I am 43, and have cooked for many women, and while it is not magic, it's pretty darn close!

On first dates I recommend going to see a movie or just order pizza and y'all can meet up somewhere or go out to eat. The cooking idea is good but I would suggest that for a 5th date no offense.

When I was younger and single, my first date choice was Putt-Putt. It's a way of enjoying yourselves and getting to know each other. Always always worked.

follow your intuition and don't play games. if you would definately be comfy cooking for her then do it. and definately play Madlibs. Digiorno pizza, not really cooking, but you make Shirly temple's... romantic, and sweet.

Ah! There is nothing like the first date!! Based on my experience, the best thing you can do is first is a movie, a good one, no action o boy stuff (lol), and then take her for dinner (pizza, or something not to serious, but romantic) so she can feel comfortable with you to talk (girls like to talk lol) try to be yourself, that the most important think... good luck!

take her to a movie she wants to see if shes into scary movies that would work great due to the fact that if she gets scared you can comfort her and feel like a hero. If that doesn't work then ask her what she likes to do and do it even if you dont enjoy it. If all else fails take her like the skating rink or somewhere like that

I like the previous ideas of putt-putt golf and bowling. If it's daytime and the weather is right maybe you could go fly kites together. I'm sure you'll make a great choice. Be sure to listen to her and have a great time buddy! ;-)

Cook something for her, if you are a good cook. That's a good idea. I'm a girl, and I would personally like to go to the mall on a date. But, I'm just that type of person.

Depends on what your girlfriend likes to do. My first date was a five mile run. There wasn't much talking though. Just me trying not to fall over and die from trying to keep up with her.

Surely, you need to know her favorite first and then arrange your date according to it. More important, do something with her together. As for food, also it will be sweet if you can share something, e.g. pizza or cake. Wish you good luck.

Oh. Lol. Thats a character from a webcomic I read. I certainly wouldn't want to go on a date like that. We both dress up kind of like that when we go to conventions though, so I don't think it'd freak her out that much. (Though I'm still just going to wear nice clothes)

Ok. First you might want to see what her favorite foods are and see if maybe she has any allergies to foods. But, if you want to surprise her, just ask about the foods she likes.
If you want to do some outing check out what local events are occurring in your city. Example: Museum, Botanical Gardens, Shakespeare, Plays, Gardening Events, Food Tasting Events, Car Shows, etc. Like where I live we have a Hatch's Chile Fest ( at the event the have contests, food tasting aswell as Kiosks to purchase goods from vendors) Remember keep it simple and be yourself. :-) How about a picnic if weather permits? A no fail dinner is spaghetti with a salad. Hope this helps :-)

I saw this question yesterday and it really stood out for me and it made me start to really think about the whole dating thing and what I would want if I were this girl.
I wouldn't want to go on an actual date all. Also, I would like it if you told me that you asked this question on here. Thoughtfulness is a very attractive quality for me. And telling me this shows that you’re being open and honest and that you really like me.

Do something creative like having a picnic in the dark and when you're done , watch the stars and just talk, while she's talking interrupt her gently and kiss her :) (girls love it when guys do that) If you want to be creative, i suggest not going to the movies because everyone does that. Take her to a fancy dinner ;) good luckk

If you have a place to stay with her it would be very cute if you guys would bake a cake! you can do it together, plus it will get both your mood up and and you will not have to feel not in your plate and I'm sure she will really like it! since its first date, first impression you should get her flowers no matter how cheesy it sounds "we" like it!!!

If nice outdoors, Putt-Putt golf and a sub sandwich after. If not nice out, if you can find a decent movie, go to a theater in a mall, walk around the mall, especially to a music store and a book store, get a soda or healthy drink and pick something to eat - since lots of food choices and you can each get anything you want.

I think that going to eat somewhere where the two of you can have a good conversation would be ideal. Its really too soon to be talking about romantic dinners. Find out more about her before you begin looking for romantic options. After having a few conversations you may find that you are not as fond of her as you thought you were :) You'd be surprised what you learn about a person through communication. Or you may find that you like her even more...take it one step at a time and have fun
