Childhood stories, exposing your hideous tummy, food in teeth, and nausea, these are just some of the few things that you try to avoid during your first or second dates. However, you run the risk of experiencing these embarrassing situations if you’ll bring your date in a place where those mannerisms are hard to avoid. That said, allow us to reveal some of the worst places that you should never consider going to during your first date– especially if you just met the person online.
1. Parking Lot
So, you have met a guy online and decided to go out on a date? If he suggests that you should meet in a parking lot, better think again. No sane person will think about meeting their date with this kind of place, unless they’re drug dealers and thinking of selling you some drugs!
2. His Parent’s House for Dinner
This is entirely fine if you have known each other for quite some time now. However, if you’ve just met the guy a few nights ago and he’s already asking you to go to their place and eat with his family, that’s definitely bothersome. Granted that his family is hospitable, intelligent, and interesting, these reasons aren’t enough to make you feel comfortable at all. Oftentimes, parents of the same sex would make you think that it’s what you’re going to look like after two decades.
Not just that, bringing a date to a parents’ house is also asking for trouble– whether you’re aware of it or not.
3. The Beach at Night
Don’t get us wrong, the beach is definitely a wonderful place, but from a point of view of a stranger, going to this place late at night would definitely be absurd. For one, there’s a good amount of sand that could go anywhere, and it’s not comfortable to eat on the beach. There aren’t any furniture to make your dating experience memorable and romantic– unless you are ready to set it up quite well.
Though, probably, one of the reasons of not meeting your date at the beach, even at night is the fact that you’ll be required to take most of your clothes off. This isn’t really a problem at all if you have a hot body, but what if you don’t? Then you’ll be full of worry and feel anxious all throughout the date.
4. Movie Theater
Never meet your date at the movies! Believe it or not, there’s nothing more uncomfortable than sitting in the dark with a total stranger you met online. Maybe there is, but you get what we’re trying to say. The purpose of a date is to get to know the person better, and this would be impossible if you’re in a dark room with a noisy sound system.
5. Night Club
Although a lot of people think that going to a night club is ideal for first dates, the truth is, it’s not. We’re talking about the blues club, jazz club, and any musical performance you can think of. Don’t take the wrong way. Although these are entertaining places, they’re still the worst places to meet your date.
6. At a BBQ Joint
Let’s be honest; no matter how hard you try, you’ll never look sexy while gnawing on ribs. Not just that, if you’re the girl, you’ll definitely feel self-conscious as you try to enjoy your meal.
BBQ dates are great, but it should be saved after a couple of days when you already feel comfortable with each other.
7. Amusement Park
Unless you want to witness your date swearing on top of her lungs, then you should never consider bringing her into an amusement park, especially if she’s one of those ladies who don’t enjoy going on a ride.
Amusement parks are definitely exciting and fun. However, they’re not for everyone. That’s why, if you really want to have your date in this place, it would be better to ask your partner about it first.
8. Non-Traditional Restaurant
Never take your date in a non-traditional restaurant unless you have a feeling that she’s going to enjoy something like this, or if she’s not prepared, you’ll just make her feel upset and don’t expect for a second date after. Communication is the key. Know the places where your date would probably enjoy going to.
There you have it. These are just some of the worst places to bring your date to. Dating can already be traumatic and a nerve-wracking experience, that’s why it’s very important to make sure that you have planned it quite well and don’t go to places, just because you enjoy going to them. Think about your date first.
