    Well, I think I've finally built up the nerve to ask out a girl I've been hanging out with for a while now... But I have no idea what would be approriate for a first date, despite the whole dinner and a movie thing.

    Keep in mind that I am of the religious type, and that sex is not my goal, well not till after the vows are exchanged anyways :p:

    What did you guys do with your first girlfriend on your first dates? Any suggestions, or advice?

    Bit on the nervous side here :doah:

    Relax, there's nothing to be nervous about. Try to be as at-ease as possible and have courteous conversation, IE if she's not into cars, don't talk about your truck all night. Avoid politics, too...

    I don't remember my first date, if I ever had an actual "first date". I remember dates where we just went driving on abandoned roads all night, others where we drove to mountains 3 hours away, still others where we just got ice cream and hung out by the water.


    If you're not trying to get into her pants, you're probably already ahead of the curve... She's probably not used to that... :D

    Talking and personality-stuff is good, like an amusement park with lighter rides (don't hit the 100MPH roller coaster yet), mini-golf. Stuff where you're in public and reacting with other people is good, and stuff where you're alone is good, too, but usually more appropriate for a 2nd or 3rd date, depending on the pace of your interaction.

    Have fun, good luck!

    agreed.... maybe go out with friends? putt putt? bowling? but im guessing you've already been hanging out with friends because you said shes a girl youve been hanging out with... ask her if she'd like to get dinner with you one night and when she says ok, just tell her you'd like to take her to a nice dinner and see what y'all are up for after that... never know... but always be confident not cocky... assume the date is going to happen...
    we'll use joe and kate for this exercise lol

    "hi, kate, how would you like to go to dinner and an evening out starting with grub at jims steakhouse with me this friday?"
    "joe, i'd love to"
    "ok kate, i'll pick you up at 6"

    -joe walks to his truck and gives himself an imaginary high five

    you can do it!

    Do not go to the movies or to a coffee shop or anything like that. If you really want her to like you go do something you have really been wanting to try and bring her along. Like a new rollerblading path or something like where you both will have a lot of fun and can have good conversation with breaks inbetween.

    Problem with a movie is you spend the whole time not talking and you dont have a chance to convey your great personality, and the problem with coffee or dinner is it's the two of you face to face the whole night. There will be awkward moments and such.

    take her some ware like a internet cafe, then surf Ck5 all night.


    If she sticks with you, GOT your self a keeper!

    and she will be use to the eventuality.




    Very good stance you have, you can build a much stronger relationship togeather and avoid many problems, My wife and I were the same way and our marrage is very strong. I commend you:waytogo:

    To answer a couple questions:

    Yep, we have been hanging out with friends, and have gotten along really well so far, no major conflicts as far as interests etc go, unless you count my marked lack of fashion sense vs her keen sense of fashion, LOL

    And yes, she is on the same playing field as I am, as far as religion and sex goes, I made sure of that long ago...

    Some excellent advice as far as making sure that we are not spending the whole day / night chatting non-stop, or not chatting at all during a movie... She is big into outdoor type stuff (camping, quadding, etc) so maybe I'll take her paintballing or something (she was talking about how she wanted to try it the other night, lol :D)

    bwahaha knew it was coming...

    btw, just get everything together for the paintballing thing, pack some sammiches and make a picnic paintball date out of it, tell her in advance to trust you but to wear old clothes.... lol or if your fashion sense is that bad, offer to let her wear some of your new ones LMAO

    Invite her over for a thrilling game of "milk the one-titted cow"... Wait... you said NO sex... hmm. Like you said paintballing or wheeling... what about fishing?

    Mini-golfing is always good since 98% of wimmens suck at it so you guys can poke fun at each other. I probably wouldn't shoot her on the first date although it could be fun if she's being a pain. :D

    Be confident and a little sarcastic. You'll have her pants off....errrr....have her at the altar in no time. :p:

    Take her some flower's,BUT stop and pick some wildflowers(if they are in bloom up there yet) instead of buying them.It will show that you like her enough to take the time and pick them instead of just plopping down the cash for some.

    So does this mean my mancard is revoked??
