If you have just met someone that you think you would like to ask out for a date but do not know what to do or where to go it could be best to take your first time date to a Christmas party. This would be ideal during the holiday season but if it is not the holiday time of year then there are so many other things you can do otherwise.
Taking your first time date to a Christmas party will do a number of things for you. First, it will finally show all of your friends that you can actually get a date and it will start to build your confidence with the opposite sex, or same sex, whichever the case may be.
If it is not the time of year for the holidays and New Year celebrations then your options are completely open as to how you treat your new love to fun and excitement on your first date.
To make things enjoyable, especially if you do not know how to go about planning a date, ask your prospect what she likes to do for fun and then plan your time together around her answer.
However, if you are confident about setting up the fun you both will have, the the sky is the limit.
You could start out like most people do and go to dinner then see a movie. If money is a little tight then stick to the movie and then go for coffee and pie afterward. The movie will give you a beginning topic of conversation so there will be no awkward silences to try to get through. Remember to not get too personal with the questions until this date goes well and there will be more in the future.
If the weather is warm, plan to take her to the zoo. Everyone loves to look at the animals and have a good time. You could pack a lunch or buy lunch from the cafeteria at the zoo and have a nice leisurely picnic. Try to find a semi-secluded place where you can eat and talk without being disturbed by others.
Is there a lake nearby? You could go swimming or sunbathing and maybe rent a boat to go cruising out on the lake. If she likes to fish you could bring along a couple of your rods and reels and try to catch something, assuming it is the season for fishing and you have a license. She will need one, too, of course, so spring for one for her.
There is lots to do during the Christmas season as well. Take her on a tour of the city at night to see all of the Christmas lights before you take your first time date to a Christmas party and then go back to your place and bake some cookies or make some candy. Get your mother's recipes for her holiday baking or candy making and pick one or two and have some fun. Let her take some home so she can have something to remember the date with until the next one.
