Should You Scrap The Traditional Movie And Dinner Date?
Once upon a time the movie and dinner date was accepted as the ideal first date. So many people accepted this that it was believed by many to be the best option when it comes to a first date.
However, there are some problems here with this option that makes it less appealing compared to some other first date options. One of the biggest problems with the movie and dinner first date is social pressure and awkwardness. There is a reason why going for a casual coffee or drink is so popular and it’s exactly that, it’s more casual so therefore a more relaxed social environment.
The relaxed nature of going for a coffee or a drink on the first date is ideal because it will allow both people to feel at ease quickly, therefore they’ll be more likely to open up.
If you are out watching a movie, going for dinner, and there is a lack of connection and chemistry, things are going to get awkward quickly. However, if you’re just going for a drink or coffee then it is very simple to let your date know that there is no connection or chemistry between the two of you, and that things probably won’t work out.
This way you’re avoiding any potential problems that may arise throughout the date and you can still both see if there is that important connection and chemistry. So if there is someone you want to invite out for a first date then it’s advisable to reconsider the movie and dinner date.
There are far better options than this for a first date. Make your first date something relaxed and casual, and you could even try for something a little more fun than usual depending on what the interests are of you and your partner. If you do this and focus on connecting with your date then you should have a great time.
