I'm 17 and i got this nice girls number the other day.
I want to take things further but i don't know the best way to do it.
Should I take her on a one-on-one date, or should I invite her to some public event that might be going on (like someones 18th party for example)?
I'm not particularly experienced in this area (I've never had a proper gf), so a bit of advice on what to do would be very helpfull.
People mature differently, looking back i don't think i was ready for any girlfriend at 17, i would just suggest take things slowly, get to know each other first, and yeah nothing wrong with taking her along to a party or something like that.
Ye, i think maybe the party would be good, low pressure for a first date.
I suggest the cinema. Its a public place, and its nothing too preasured.
of course your old enough, just ask her to the cinema thats the easiest thing! I got my first proper boyfriend at 15, obviously then i didnt know he was gonna be such a long term thing but now we just broke up last week and im 19 now...
But you don't talk in movies, and surely if you've met someone new then the whole point is to get to know them and see whether you like them. I've never really understood why the cinema is considered a suitable date venue. Personally, I'd recommend inviting her out for a meal -- lunch, if dinner seems a bit too serious, and think of something you can do afterwards.
Thing with a movie is it establishes a comfort to spend time together, and allows a more lighthearted chat.. with a lunch date with someone you hardly know it could make it a bit more nervous, this way its a nice break In.
yea the cinema gets rid of nervousness...it doesnt matter so much if you cant find anything to say! i dunno, my date in the cinema just worked so so well.. we went to the cinema, watched a funny film (i think funny is a good one for a date) and then went and chilled in the shops for a few hours afterwards joking and then we talked. It was lovely. Then again we sort of did know each other a little before the date..but not much so maybe if you didnt know them atall then the cinema isnt good?
i hate cinema dates. i get bored, my pupils dilate then when i come out i squint in an ugly way. and the guy im with, i want to talk and flirt with. omg i bet i'd fall asleep. and i dont go in for any of that back row fancy business either.
bowling is always fun and also ice skating!
my dates involve pubs, parties, clubs, meals, films. thats about it.
