First Date Do's and Don'ts
NEVER Take your date to see a movie (especially a drive
in) on the first date. You need the first date to do all
of the 'getting-to-know-each-other' stuff.
DO keep conversation going. Ask questions. Be interested
in what he/she is saying. Even if they are talking about
their bug collection....it is their passion so be
supportive and listen.
DON'T take your date to a basketball, football, hockey,
or any other kind of game UNLESS he/she agreed to go
with you because of a shared interest.
DO Women (or at least the ones I know) like to have the
door held and chairs pulled out for them. It is really
nice when a gentleman does these things......For you
women, if a man is gentleman enough to hold the door or
pull out a chair for you...let him. He is just being
polite, he is not doing it because he doesn't think you
DON'T hold hands or even kiss on the first date. Leave
some mystery for the next dates. Plus, by NOT doing
these things it shows that you are more interested in
the PERSON than the BODY.
When you go to the movie theatre, while the movie is
playing, tell your sweetie that you have to go to the
bathroom. Instead, sneak outside and leave something in
or on his car. For example: a card, flowers, putting a
tape you made to start when he turns on the car...
anything. After the movie is over and you go back to
your car, he will find the surprise so act dumb like you
don't know a thing. He'll love it.

Jar Of Ideas
My fiancee and I live in a small town where there is
little to do, and when we would go out we would argue
what there is to do and what to do. Now we have a date
jar where we put in all our ideas for places to go and
things to do and each week we pull out one slip and do
whatever is on that slip.

Notice The Little Things
One night after I date I noticed that the fuel level in
my girlfriend’s car was getting rather low. As she
dropped me off at home, I asked her to call me the
second she got home just so that I knew she got home
safely. I also told her if she didn't call in 20 minutes
I would come looking for her. It may only be a little
thing, but all the small things count towards something.

A Memorable Toast
My fiancÚ and I went to a 25th wedding anniversary a few
days ago. I sneaked up to the bar while he was in the
bathroom and got 2 glasses of the champagne the couple
toasted each other with (the bartender was quite
generous about it when I told him what I intended to do
with it). When my fiancÚ got back, he saw the champagne
sitting on the chair in front of him. I raised my glass
and said, "To Erik. May our marriage be as happy as this
couple's is and may it last twice as long.” We toasted
each other then. He thought it was really sweet.

French Fries and Dress Up
I love dressing up but I'm on a strict student budget
and can't always afford expensive dinners out, so my
boyfriend and I often dress up, me in a dress, him in a
suit, then go to a fast food restaurant and each have a
combo. Then we sometimes go 5 pin bowling (it's always
cheaper) and finish up the night by going to the
discount movie theatre. Or, you can always check your
local paper for amateur theatre productions or
elementary school band concerts or plays. It's important
to play the part too; we often make up a story about our
riches and go window-shopping downtown and talk about
the things we are going to buy. You can't really do this
if you're overly shy, you do get a lot of weird looks
but it's totally worth it. They have been some of the
most romantic nights I've ever had!

Be a Little Creative
My boyfriend of 2 years and I recently went to a popular
bar and grill for dinner. That night, they happened to
have a balloon artist there making balloon sculptures
for the kids. Well, my boyfriend excused himself to go
to the bathroom, and when he came back, he handed me a
yellow balloon daisy (my favorite flower) and a tiny red
balloon ladybug (my favorite animal.) I had to give him
a kiss for this sweet, creative gesture!

May I See Your Tickets Please?
My girlfriend called to invite me to a movie she was
going to with some of her friends. I sadly informed her
I couldn't make it. I then proceeded to buy the largest
polar bear our mall had, and went to the theater a few
minutes after the movie started. I asked one of the
employees to pull her and her friends out of the theater
to "check their tickets." When they went out one door, I
went in the other and put the huge bear in her seat and
sunk down in the seat next to it. Needless to say she
was completely surprised and pleased.

A Cute Gesture
I had just met a guy about a month ago and we went on a
date. We would talk on the phone at night, and at
school, we would meet each other at break and walk each
other to our next class. One day, while we were walking
in the halls to class, he asked me to hold his binder
because he had to tie his shoe. I was watching him
"pretend" to tie his shoe and was wondering why. Then I
looked down at the binder that I was holding. On the
front, on a piece of paper, it said "Will you go out
with me?" There were little hearts everywhere and our
intials joined with “+” all over. It was the cutest
thing a guy did for me.

Concert beach ball
At any really big concert event, bring a beach ball and
a permanent marker. Write love notes to your girl
telling her how much you love her and how much she
means. Then launch the ball into the crowd. You can both
watch as people in the crowd keep the ball for a minute
reading the messages before sending it back into the
crowd. It's a great way to profess your love.
