When it comes to dating, and especially dating with someone you have met online, matching the place with the personality can make all the difference. Choosing the right place makes between getting off on the right foot easier, making the right impression come more naturally, and getting the best idea about the other person more quickly, so that you gain the best idea whether you want to continue with the other person and let the romance blossom.
The first trick is to get to know the other person enough so that you have an idea of where best to take them. When you first meet an acquaintance in person or on-line, it won’t be difficult to gather an idea of the best place to go on the first date. It is not only the interests of that person you need to consider however; the other’s personality, and the combination of both of your personalities will also give you vital indications of where to go and what to do.
For people who are naturally exuberant, talkative and extroverted, the first date should be a lively an exciting environment. It should not be so exiting that the focus leaves the two of you however! A lively city bar or restaurant is usually a good idea here, and if things go well and you decide to go on a second date, then it is always a good idea not to re-tread old ground and takes things up a notch, for example by going to a bowling alley, sporting event, or going on a mild bar-crawl. Never go anywhere that you are unsure of, and a poor establishment is always something to be avoided.
For the more quiet, reserved and passive individuals, the date you go on needs to provide a talking point so that the conversation does not run dry. Dates such as the movies, or going to events and exhibitions are good examples, and you might not think it, but doing things that you would usually do with friends, such as pub quizzes, are great to get the conversation flowing.
If you make these considerations, then it will be far easier to tell if you are not right for each other – the tragedy is not with people who do not match, but for people who do but do not go on the suitable type of date.
