First date

Hi, I am a 17-year-old girl who has never been on her first date so I was wondering what was your first date like and do you have any tips for me.

My first date was a 12-mile run at 6.30 am. My decision as I was training for a marathon, he insisted on coming along. I enjoyed it, but I don't recommend it for everyone!

Date 2 was dinner that evening. His choice of restaurant as I was new to the area. Five hours later and the conversation was still going. We're now in an LTR.

Serious tips: Don't rush into dating someone because you haven't yet or due to peer pressure, direct or indirect; theres time for all that in the future. Depending on who you are seeing, meet in a safe place, make sure someone else knows what you are doing and have a way of travelling home. Don't force the conversation; it's OK to have pauses. And be yourself; don't dress or do make-up you wouldn't normally and don't put on an act to impress the other person.

It would be hard not to overthink at first as I tend to overthink sometimes.

As a 19-year-old from Bangladesh living in London, I've had some dating experience back home and would like to offer a few tips:

1.

Choose a date when both of you are free to spend ample time together, avoiding any other plans on that day.

2.

Plan your activities ahead of time and have backup options to maximize fun and minimize decision-making.

3.

I don't recommend having sex on the first date, but if it happens, always use protection—no glove, no love.

4.

If your date lasts the entire day, look for deals on food and drinks to make it more enjoyable and budget-friendly.

These suggestions might reflect my background and cultural traditions from Bangladesh.

That's good advice I think. I think the advice there is pretty universal actually, I would have recommended similar things and I'm from a different background.
My first ‘date’ was going to his house and watching a movie. Was quite sweet as I fell asleep and he was too scared to wake me up. Was a very calm and relaxing time.
Thanks for the tips these will definitely be helpful when I do eventually go on my first date.
I need help ASAP so there is this guy I have a huge crush on and there are two problems, the first one is I am too shy to talk to him and the second one is I only have a limited amount of time to talk to him. What should I do????

Strike up a conversation and uncover new aspects of him.
