Women like men who aren’t afraid to take the reins and make decisions. This includes planning a date. If you’ve only just met online, you’ll want to plan a date that considers your new lady friend’s interests and personality. This information can be gleaned from her dating profile and the back-and-forth messages you have been sending. Not all of these ideas may apply, but they will help get you started. Keeping the date a surprise can also be fun, but if she says she hates surprises, let her in on your plans. Older women like a man to act like a gentleman, so picking up the tab is recommended.
5 Places to Take an Older Woman on a First Date
Depending where you live, some parks are open all year round. There is always so much to see and do, it can take the pressure off the formal interview-style coffee-shop type of date. Also, going on rides together not only brings you into physical proximity with your date, but also gets the hearts racing too!
This is a great idea for a woman who has a passion for cooking or just food itself. More and more restaurants host tasting evenings, sometimes with guest chefs, offering a menu that gives you and your date many different appetizers and mains to try. This may take a little research, and reservations are often needed. This is not a date recommended for the budget conscious.
For those women who are active or just nature lovers, planning a day away from the hustle and bustle can be very calming. The great outdoors is an ideal environment for getting to know someone else because there are so few distractions. This date could be anything from a walk along the beach, a hike through the mountains, or visiting a conservation area.
Most older women have fond memories of going to the drive-in when they were teenagers. There aren’t many around anymore, but they are making a comeback as a retro alternative to the in-house screens. If you can find one, it’s a great place to spark her feelings of nostalgia, and maybe somewhere to make new memories.
Another retro type of date, bowling is always good for a laugh, even for beginners. It’s another way to avoid the pressure of a sit-down date, by being active while getting to know one another. And a little friendly competition is akin to flirting, so you’ll be in the groove without even trying.
