    On the first date, is the guy inclined to pay for things, ie. bowling, then coffee etc?
    Is it a part of society for a guy to pay for his 'date' on the first date.
    Would you feel comfortable with it and would other girls?
    Lol I never even mentioned the paying bit :confused:

    But I'd always go halves or sometimes take it in turns to buy rounds or he'll pay for cinema and I'll pay for drinks. Give and take really.

    if you want to be a really cool **** take her to trisha's in greek st, 56 or 57 i think. it's a members club but they're very lax and you can get in anyway. underground, hot, sweaty and small, cheap for soho £3 a beer, but good atmosphere, and she'll drip for it.

    First date, I would let a guy pay for me yes, I'd offer of course, but if he insisted I'd humour him. From then on though, I would always pay half, or he pay one time, I pay the next sorta thing. I don't think a guy should pay for everything! Maybe just the first date

    Yup, 57. Tiniest place in the world, but great. If you want to sit down you'd better get there early, though!

    Ah, London, full of lovely areas for love
    Avoid the really crowded areas e.g. Camden (lovely area but not the best place for a first date), shopping malls e.g. Westfield.
    Go someone where there are really nice shops/attractions/scenery and a place to eat e.g. I always found having a picnic quite romantic, go someone like Hyde Park/Regent's Park

    Just somewhere nice, but not really expensive if its a first date. Just somewhere chilled with no pressure
    "Chilled" shouldn't be hard at this time of year!

    To the OP: perhaps one of the parks? I thought the rockery in Regent's Park was really pretty.

    Take her to a hotel, jokes, never do that.

    Depends on the time and maybe the typical will do:

    shop around town then cinema then resturant and finally take her back personally to her house, don't forget the goodbye kiss.

    GAH, nothing better than being stuck in an inescapable (for an hour or so) cabin of doom with sweaty tourists! Honestly! Me and the other half were gonna go since it would've been free for us at the time... we chose to watch the 5 minute '4-D virtual experience' instead then went to eat. Lmao.

    EDIT: And honestly, everyone saying park, bloody hell. I get that it's romantic and all, but I wouldn't want to be sat outside all day freezing my nerps off for some 'scenery', save it for the summer! Outdoor ice skating is fine, though, atleast you're moving and all. Still, can't go wrong with some place indoors and food :love:...

    Basically you should actually pay attention to what she say, sometime you can receive clue about where she want to go and most importantly come up with the date plan yourself is much more useful and better.

      It's pricey and not really worth the money but the Absolut Ice Bar just off Regent Street is pretty cool.

      Hamley's Toy Shop nearby is good fun.

      I'm looking for some places where I could take her for a day. We will meet in London next week
      Thanks a lot for advices
      W/e you decide take her to a place you already have been to. It is really stupid to take a girl to a place that you don't know on a first date.

      It's winter and if the day is nice I always prefer ice skating and if she is not good in skating it will be perfect for you (you need to be good ofc) because you hold hands and can talk a lot so you can bond over 1 hr skate. Keep a slow pace so you don't end up all sweaty and after the skates take her for a hot choco/moca/late or w/e she like.

      Depends what you want from that girl a dinner/coffee + cinema is not a bad idea, because the cincema give you the chance to shut up for a bit.

      Other option which is most commonly used is a coffee/restaraunt/bar that is comfy and you like it. If you are in a place you like you will be more confident and she will sense that.

      P.S.
      Don't try to impress her because that is actually the best way to impress her.
