Use firefox for one. It has a spellcheck feature...you can at least look half-intelligent.


Your best bet, unless you have a real swingin' bachelor pad, is to go OUT for your date. Where? No idea. Somewhere interesting that isn't a movie. (movies are for official boyfriend/girlfriend...they suck for 'real' dates).
Or, ask her what she wants to do. Real simple way to do things. Though, have a back-up plan or two if she doesn't have an idea. If you ask her, and then have some awkward conversation about how you don't know where to go either...you look like a dork. If you ask, she hasn't got any ideas, and you can immediately pop a few ideas...you look considerate and organized.

Oh, unless she's a gamer. Then let her beat you at some games. Chicks dig that (i'm kidding, sorta).

I completely agree. Movies suck for first dates (just came back from one). I recommend some other activity during which you could talk, for example pool (girls where I come from seem to really like it).

Firefox? Puh-leeez, FireFox is overrated. Safari is way better

for one thing. Wash that filthy hair of yours. Geez when was the last time you washed it?! I thought I saw something get lost in there. Clean it. and don;t use that nasty smelling shampoo you use. eww. Use that one. Yes ~that~ one.

What? No. No. Thats no good. That outfit is tacky. Pick something else out.
And clean your room. Pick up those nasty books and DVDs
No one wants to know about your freaky porno collection.
Better yet. Take her OUT somewhere. And no, the back of your truck does not count.

What? You want me to give you ideas for date spots? Nah. You figure that out yourself P:

Use the following phrase, which regretably I'll have to write out phonetically.

ee-gah-kahn ni iki masen ka?

I hope I got that right. According to my study of Japanese that shoud translate (rather haphazardly I admit) as 'would you like to go to the movies tonight?' At least it adds a little stylistic flair to your incoherent mumblings. Oddly enough it works, too.

So does this mean you have already invited her? Take her out some place to eat, good way to converse and eat yummy foods. Or perhaps prepare something at your place and sorta interact playing some video games. Don't ever hide your hobbies and interests from a girl. I'd never settle for anyone who doesn't accept what I like and for who I am. Anyway I recommend going out and doing something but doesn't mean you can't have fun at home.

I dunno, but that worked for me. And she's a gamer.

It's a crappy place for the first few dates with a person.
"Hey I had a really great time silently staring at the movie screen with you."
Dates need talking. After some dates talking becomes less of a priority, as you already have a decent idea about eachother.

Safari is Mac-trash, and it can keep it. I'd use Internet Explorer before safari.

About you problem, don't have a clue where to take her, but I know that what ever you do, be natural. If she doesn't like you for who you are then it's not gonna work

Sorry but for me this was the complete opposite, me and this girl never went out on any "OFFICIAL" dates. Most times when we went to see movies we also did something else too. Also we've gone back and forth for hours asking each other what the other wants to do XD.

And I never let her beat me at games...she just wins ^.^

(And yes all of that worked for me, we're going out now

Just be yourself, make eye contact, smile and compliment them on things that are nice about them!

None of them compare even the slightest to Internet Explorer! It's the best thing you can use to download another browser! XD.

My tip would be depending on a few things:
1) Is it cold? -> Go out to a café and drink some tea, coffee or hot chocolate whilst talking and looking out the windows at the falling leaves.
2) Is it warm? -> Go outside, and drink some tea, coffee or hot chocolate!

no but honestly, I think cafés are really awesome, you can talk a lot, look at eachother a lot, and drinking stuff is always nice.... I think it's hard to eat when I am with people, but drinking is no problem

Ah, yes. But definitely have a backup plan. I've, on more than one occasion, fallen into one of those unfortunate "I dunno, whaddyou wanna do?" things that make it seem like more of a boring Saturday afternoon than a date.

If you have a roller skating rink, try that. There's lots of stuff to do, including an arcade usually, as well as food, and most of the ones I've been to have a "couples" time where you go on the floor with a partner. It helps you get used to being physically close to a person, without the discomfort because you're concentrating on something else.

I'd probably go with a roller skating rink, too. Although, the ones that I'm near are the small shitty ones
