    Speaking of dating why is it that whenever I meet someone whom I really fancy they always have a boyfriend?

    50% of the time their boyfriend either treats them badly, takes them for granted or looks like the back end of a bus yet they still stick with him.

    Dates are an american concept, created in the 20th century. Thought I'd point that out.

    A picnic? How lame is that?
    Hey, if someone's worth going out with, they'll be good company.

    If you need a film to make it remotely interesting, I'd seriously consider whether I wanted a second date.

    First dates are about finding out about a person, not snogging their face off in the back row.


    Besides, I love picnics. Surely that'd be handy for the bloke having to pay to take me out...?

    Like I said, needs to be spring or Summer though... And I'd want nice food too.



    And SamTheMan: A lot of things are American creations started in the 20th Century. Doesn't make them less worthy ways of spending time.

    Ironically, the first recorded use of the word in English to mean a rendezvous with someone of the opposite sex is in the works of George Meredith, the English poet and novelist. The use of the word date to mean `a person of the opposite sex with whom one has made an appointment or engagement' is American. The concept of the date is easily traceable to earlier notions of courting, wooing, and the like.

    true, dating has its roots in courtship which has been around much longer than the USA. But in response to the previous posts, 20 or 30 years ago, noone would say "I'm going on a date". It's just American films influencing people's opinion on what you should do.

    Picnic eh? I think I may try that one day in the future. It'll be just like Neighbours.

    Failing that - boardgame evening!!! There's no way to get to know someone. Plus you can show off your intelligence with Scrabble.

    Ah my first date!

    I was 10 and went to see problem child at the pictures! His dad drove us there and my mum picked us up. It was so innocent-we didnt even hold hands!

    Now going to get a drink and going for a walk is nice. As long as its not in the country-no escape1

    I think going to a cafe/little coffee shop always makes a good first date

    And as for the picnic thing thats what me and my boyfriend did the first time we went out...It was fun because it was a lovely sunny day in May and we went for a walk by a river afterwards..
