First Date Tips

Jan 22, 2014

It can be hard enough to get up the nerve to ask someone out, but once you’ve done it you then have to start worrying about making it a date they won’t soon forget! With a little planning though, you can channel your inner Romeo and give your crush a rush. Check out these First Date Tips!

Awesome Activities

When you’re in love, anything you do together is fun, but that’s not always the case if you’re just getting to know each other. Pick a first date activity that suits their personality, and that also won’t make you too nervous (for example, you may want to pass on sky diving.) Here are a few ideas:

  • Picnic in the park
  • Go to a movie (but make sure its something you both agree on)
  • Go to a concert
  • Hiking
  • Swimming
  • Go for dinner
  • Go to a party
  • Go for dessert
  • Check out an amusement park

First DateTipsSometimes keeping simple (like dinner or a movie) is the best plan
 

Whatever you choose, make sure you do enough planning so that things go smoothly, for example figure out how you’re getting there, how much it costs and how long you want to stay.

Wear it Well

Don’t stress about how to dress, but you should figure out what you want to wear before the last minute – that way you won’t end up with an outfit that makes you feel awkward ten minutes in. It’s good idea to pick clothes you feel comfortable in so that you’re not fidgeting, or worrying about your appearance, but don’t forget to also try and look good!

First Date TipsPlan an outfit you're comfortable in so you don't feel as awkward as this guy!
 

Talk the Talk

There’s no bigger buzzkill than sitting in silence with your crush, so before your date try and remember things you’ve talked about in the past, their interests, so that you’re never short of conversation.

First Date TipsPut your phone in your pocket and tweet about the date later
 

Another big no-no is constantly checking your phone, talking on your phone or texting. Lots of people do this when they’re just hanging with friends, but it can make that someone special feel like you don’t really want to get to know them.

Dear dish it, my friend first met eachother on the first day of kindergarten we sat next to one another and we became close. we were BFF's throughout 1st to 2nd grades. then, the second grade teacher realized there were alot of kids in the class. and same w the 3rd grade teacher. so, we had to have a split class. my friend was in the split. I was not. It all seemed like the teachers were doing somthing... weired. all the girls (well, almost there were only 6 girls on one half) were in the split. and all the boys were in regular . AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE WAS WEIRED! :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( all the boy BFF's and the girl BFF's were SPLIT. me and my friend,kids named Nia & Georgia, Isaac& Ethan, and more. it was so sad for all of us.2 months later, I got homschooled. 2 years later im back in public with my 4th grade self. everything had changed. a bunch of people were obsessed w\ a girl my age named kassidy. im neighbors w\ kassidy and she is REALLY cool and nice. but the whole I  [s:sm3/1jw1] kassidy crew got mean. if I asked them to play they would say. "If Kassidy is playing I will" or I would want to be parteners with kassidy on something and they would freak out. anyway jasmine NEVER invited my to anything, and I am trying to be nice to her ( ice cream money, homework help, comfort when sad, ect.) And not to mention I invited her to 3 things!!! on the bright side she came to 2 :thumbsup :thumbsup she also embarassed me by saying that she was moving I freaked out  because I cared about her and I would cry all the time. I even held onto her and said sadly, "PLEASE DON'T GO!!  :sad :sad . later i found out that she was not moving, she was going to CA for a vacation. even the teacher was in on it!! :mad :mad anyways, my parents told me that i should just let go of her. But i am not ready. HELP??? :e :e :e :e :e

When I was a child I wanted glasses SOO bad, cuz I wanted to copy my mom and sister. And also, I thought they looked cool. I wear glasses now. I have had them for 2 years and honestly I don't mind them. Although, this year I am gonna pry get contacts for swimming better and stuff like that. But if you don't need glasses I wouldn't recommend wearing them. They're not bad, but trust me after a while you will pry not like them as much. But hey, that's my opinion. If you want to do it I'm not gonna stop you. Do what makes you happy in the long run. And tell your friends that they are non prescription if you don't need them, but still get some.

I agree I was afraid of that first too. Eventually I just began inviting my friends over and they don't use it/practically obsess over it like I do but they understood why I use kidzworld and not many other forms of social media.

They would put me in trouble for falling in love. They believe I can't date until age 20. Aw, well, my advice for you would be to talk to your parents about it. There's no point trying to sneak around like those films and it is better for your mind if you talk to them about it. It can be super difficult I know but if you and your parents get along really well then you guys can talk about it and make it work. On the other hand, if your parents ban you from falling in love as you put it, then I think it's better just to stay as friends with him.
