First date - What should I do and where should we go?

For your first date with someone, you should choose somewhere you think you will both feel comfortable – this could be a café, the cinema, or even a walk in the park.

Think about what you are going to wear as you probably want to look your best.

Try and think of some things to talk about that you are both interested in.

Do not feel you have to kiss on the first date. The most important thing is that you have a good time together.

It’s natural to get a bit nervous, but just remember to relax and be friendly.


TheSite has lots of information about dating.
