Pro First Date Tips

Lately Iíve had a lot of friends complain about first date failures. I myself have experienced a fair share of bad dates and have taken it upon myself to compile some pro tips for each gender on how to ensure a successful first date. Since I think most people are capable of basic conversation, my tips are more directed to the date set up and end of the night. Also, I am assuming that this is a first date between two people who arenít previously friends and have a general interest in each other, not just looking to hook up, etc.

Guys:
1) When you are about to ask a girl on a date, pick up the phone and call her. Texting is lame.
2) Have a place in mind you want to take her on date as well as a time. Offer to pick her up. If you do not own a car, worry not, public transit goes to most places in the city, meet her at her place.
3) When you arrive at her place to pick her up for the big date Ė go to the door!!! Calling or honking is unacceptable.
4) Now youíre on your way to your date location. (If youíre unsure of where to go for a first date, dinner is always a pretty good bet. Victoria has a lot of neat locally owned restaurants great for dates, oh look, a whole website! http://www.dinehere.ca/results.asp?l=29). Donít feel pressured to pick somewhere ďfancyĒ. Also donít go somewhere with your friends, it should be one on one. If youíre broke, go for coffee and a walk by the ocean.
5) If you have decided on a date that involves eating, watch your table manners! Actually watch your manners the whole time.
6) Bill time. Bust out the credit card and pay. If you are not going for a meal, pay for whatever it is you do.
7) Time to go home. If you are having a good time, suggest going for drinks or dessert after whatever it was you had planned already. If you arenít having a good time, take her home. Try not to have plans after the date. That way if itís going well you arenít rushed to leave. If itís going badly, feel free to make something up that you have to do afterward. Donít hint at hanging out again if you donít see it going anywhere.
8) If you like the girl, set up a time to go on a second date before the first date is done.

Girls:
1) Youíre allowed to ask a guy out too. Donít expect him to pick up on the hint that you like him or that heíll ask you out.
2) If you drive or have access to a car and your date doesnít, offer to pick him up.
3) Same goes for girls as for guys, if you are the one doing the asking, think of somewhere to go and have manners.
4) If/When your date goes to pay the bill, offer to pay. You donít have to throw cash on the table or anything, but ask if you can pay for your portion. If they say no, sincerely thank them. If they say yes, too bad sister, get the wallet out.
5) Itís the end of the date... if you had a nice time, tell your date and suggest a date to see them again in the future. If they werenít for you, thank them again and go on your way.

agree?

Be Respectful and be Yourself because there's no point playing a role because when she finds out she will be pissed off with all the time you have wasted... or worse not like who you really are... if you wanna open doors cause she makes you feel like it?.. do it

3) When you arrive at her place to pick her up for the big date – go to the door!!! Calling or honking is unacceptable.

ROFL I always call and tell them to get their ass out...doesn't everyone do this or do you guys actually knock on their doors?

Maybe it's the way I've been raised, but I knock on the door every time--regardless of occasion or person.
It's more respectable to her family, and even if she doesn't live with her family, I just think of it as a good habit.

Honking is always rude, but personally I ALWAYS call instead. Many times you don't want her parents making a big fuss at the door, especially if she's Chinese/Asian. I only ring the doorbell after I've been formally introduced to her parents.

9) Make sure the girl isn't a nutcase first.

i stopped reading after you put your lame list.

every girl is different, and every date is different. Just be yourself, don't act like someone your not cause if you do , your just gonna get burned later on.

And don't make your first few , or even first feew months of date so extravigant, unless you got the $$ just take her out for a good dinner or lunch and some alone time to chat and get to know each other.

OP post = FAIL

I believe you are also mistaken. Bust two loads* in her twice, unprotected, then once on her face. Wait a few days for her to feel "pregnancy symptoms" and THEN buy her the Prada bag.

*Two loads minimum, inside her, unprotected, just to be extra sure.
