There are some places you should never take a woman on a first date, no matter the woman. Dates are a way to get to know someone, and if you take her to the wrong venue you won’t know much about her after the date is over. Avoid these venues for your first date if you plan to have another one.
A noisy crowded bar is a no-go for a first time date for several reasons. If she agrees to meet you for cocktails and appetizers, go to a quiet lounge with a laid back atmosphere. Don’t take her to the local college hangout where neither of you will be able to talk because of the noise. And if she isn’t a drinker or able to deal with cigarette smoke, she may be miserable at the bar. Chances are you won’t able to find anywhere to sit either. Better yet, take her to a nice restaurant with a decent drink menu and nice atmosphere for a cocktail and a snack before you head out to wherever you’ve planned to take her on your date. But, please, make sure that the restaurant or lounge isn’t the only thing you have planned.
Movies are a third or fourth date activity because you can’t talk to someone or get to know them during a movie. Well, you can, but you’ll probably be shushed by other movie-goers and eventually asked to leave the theater. Unless you take her to a drive in, but again, that’s a fourth date sort of thing, because everyone knows what happens with couples going to the drive in. Instead, take her to a museum or a place you can have a meaningful conversation.
Your Mom’s House
Whatever you do, don’t take her to your parent’s house, especially not for a date and definitely not the first date. Dinner with parents comes much later. You take her to your parent’s house for the first date, and while she’ll be polite and make conversation, you’ll likely never hear from her again. Would you want to go to her parent’s house the very first date? Not likely, right? You’d probably not even make it to the front door.
A Sports Event
Kind of a mix between a noisy crowded bar and the movies, you can’t have a decent conversation and you can’t really get to know each other as the focus is on the game, not on each other. Maybe she doesn’t like the sport, or either of the teams that are playing, even though it’s your favorite sport/team. This could end in a miserable time.
