Just a few i put together but you boys should know the basics ^_^
1) Be nice and polite on the first date.
not quite, be Nice to her yes, but be bold and outgoing. Dont hold back, Dont be shy.
2) Open the door for the girl
Ok, i know you all like to avoid being traditionalists, but a man should treat a girl like a lady. Do all sorts of overly propper things like this, and try to be a little romantic, as long as you dont come off being tottaly full of shit.
3) Dutch is good but if the male pays for the meal she will be impressed.
No. No. No. No. No. Almost. Dutch dates are never good. Dont be a cheap ass. spare no expence. Relationships make Cars look like handbags when it comes to costly. Girls take trime and money. Lots of both. In anycase, as a man, you should pay for everything, even if it means you had to mow a few extra lawns. If the girl plays it off like she doesnt want you to its because A, its a test or B she feels like she'll owe you something and that you'll hold it over her head.
4) Dress nice (Depends on the place)
dont dress too nice, it will be intimidating if you come in a suit and tie. Dress like you spent alot of tim,e looking in the closet for what to wear.
5) A rose is a nice gift for a first date.
A rose might be over the top. you dont want to start with the presents yet. you could realy fuck yourself that way, because everygift must be better than the previous until marrige, Belive me, i had a nearly 3 year relationship. I went all out on 3 month. and on 6 month i had to double it. On a year i had to do twice that, and on 2 years i was like < how can i keep this gift under 600 bucks?
6) Give her nice comments.
Give her complements yes, but be a lil snotty, because girls like to think you changed a little just for them.
7) Movies are a great first date
No, although i have had many movie first dates that became long make out sessions where very little of the movie was actualy watched... including the first date that developed into my super long relationship, i would say a better first date would involve being somewhere where you can talk and get to know eachother better. the more creative the better. If its crowded where you plan to go, make reservations.
