    Got a date with this girl later today.... arranged to meet her at starbucks but my friend told me that apparently this is a bad idea because its "awkward" to sit across from people and try to make convo with someone you don't really know. He said I should have come up with a date that's more interactive like going for a walk at wollaton Hall or cooking together or something like that.

    Surely this isn't true? What do you lot talk about on first dates. Am just gonna ask her about herself and try to be interesting or something.


    I think if there is mutual attraction the awkwardness is not so great and Starbucks has quite a good atmosphere. I don't think a first date should be too complicated. You could always suggest a walk after. Talk about interests, aspirations, family etc. and try and make her laugh. Good luck.
