Fun And Cheap First Date Ideas

First date ideas
Here are a few helpful hints for making any first date one you’ll both never forget, regardless of age, sexual orientation, or income. Have fun with it!

  • Try to guess how much money your date makes in a year. Start by guessing how much the clothes they’re wearing cost, then how expensive their car was. Keep smiling the entire time. “Is it $40,000? $38,000?” Pick a number in your head – any number – and if the actual amount is higher or lower by even a dollar, leave.
  • Drink as much milk as you can in ten minutes before meeting up, then ask them to pick an offbeat, creative place for you to throw up in. Throw up in an art gallery! Throw up on a playground! Throw up at a croquet field!
  • Have a crying contest! Don’t tell them it’s a contest, though – that would be cheating!
  • Bake something together. Don’t let them have any. Ask them if they have any more food you can take home to eat later.
  • When your date goes to the bathroom, take the opportunity to go through their phone and call their mother. Tell her you love her.
  • Take them on a picnic – everyone loves eating outside. Carefully but thoroughly smear whatever skin your date has left uncovered with whatever food you’ve brought along. Ask them to choke you. Not sexually or anything, just a light choking. Ask if you can choke them. Laugh. Laugh harder. Laugh much more softly, now. Don’t break eye contact.
  • Talk about your sexual fantasies. Ask them, “Have you ever seen Grey Gardens?”
  • Go ice skating together. Talk about death. Don’t let them change the subject or skate faster than you.

      A girl I dated sorta did the cake one…I hated her for it because I love cake, but I respected at the same time..because I love cake. I understood where she was coming from.

      Throw up at the opera! The only downside is that you both have to be remarkably punctual. Otherwise, you’ll puke in an uncreative space.

      Sidenote: I once came within a whisker of throwing up in Westminster Abbey. Thirteen-year-old me was super relieved it didn’t happen; now, though, I think it would have been the most awesome thing ever. Or at least as awesome as anything involving vomit ever can be….

      This is stupid. I dont understand how this sarcasm is supposed to be entertaining an informative.

        Well, of course entertainment is an entirely subjective experience, but informative wasn’t really one of the goals here. I had hoped it went without saying one should never try any of these, but: please don’t ever try one of these.

      All of these are good ideas, I’ll have to keep this post in mind.

      I met this woman at a friend’s party last night. It’s warm today Upstate, so we decided to go on a picnic. I liked our version better. :)
