|Dinner Date Ideas:Want
to impress that special someone with romantic date ideas that are sure
The dating culture has determined
that him taking her out to dinner is a great beginning place for couples
to get to know each other. In fact, socializing around food and drink
makes for a great starting point for at least the first several dates,
followed by going somewhere else (dancing,
a concert, bowling, etc.) afterwards or just enjoying meeting at one another's
home (although, not a good first date idea).
The creative inovations below take into account various
types and stages of the first several dates. They are intended to
add that little something extra that is sure to get his/her attention.
The only warning I would offer to the guys would be....
Men, whatever you do, take her to a nice restaurant on
the first date where they actually have waiters/waitresses and romantic
tables for two. An all-you-can-eat buffet or a fast food franchise
just does not impress a lady. Agreed?
Now, enjoy the ideas below.....
DATE: Two Roses at the Restaurant...
When making reservations at a nice dinner club that I checked out previously,
I asked that two of the roses be placed in a vase (you might have to supply
this) and be put on the table just after we were seated.
| It was our first date and I already knew from
our e-mail correspondence that, like most women, she loves roses.
She even told me the two colors of roses that she liked. Wanting
to throw in that extra "little kiss," I picked up fourteen roses (seven
of each color) at a florist.
You should have seen the look of pleasant surprise on
her face when the roses arrived. She knew immediately that I had
done something special for her.
To top off the evening, as we went back to my car, I pulled
out the other dozen roses and gave them to her. She was enthralled.
By the way, I did get a kiss for all my efforts.
Actually, it was a series of tender little kisses and, yes, there was a
second date, and a third date, and a, well, you get the picture.
DATE: Dinner & Dancing
Guys, you just have to get it through those amazing thick
skulls of yours; women love to dance. They also consider a man who
can dance as being romantic, masculine, and wonderfully attractive; all
at the same time. So, do some research in your local area and find
a nightclub or bar that features a disk jockey or live band with a good
mix of music that includes slow dancing as well as all the other types
of styles. Also, get out there and join some of the local singles
groups that are centered around dancing. Learn to dance and when
you get a hot date, take her out on the floor after a nice dinner to show
her that you know how to trip the light fantastic. Believe me, she
will be eating out of your hands before the night is over. Dance,
DATE: Personalized Fortune Cookies...
However, here is a very creative idea that is really going
to get her attention...
| Invite her to your place and order some Chinese
take-out --then transfer all of that good Oriental cousine to some nice
table dishes instead of serving it out of the cartons.
1. Previous to her arrival, take two unwrapped fortune
cookies and use a straight edge razor knife to carefully slit it open along
the length of the cellophane wrapping. Carefully remove the cookie
without breaking it.
2. Use your computer WordPad program or whatever you have
to make two small paper fortunes. Here are the ones that I made....
The secret of a happy life is to fall madly in
love with Vincent and want to spend every
moment of the rest of your life with him.
The secret of a happy life is to admit to
her that you sabotaged her fortune
cookie, but did indeed mean well.
3. Use a tweezers to pull the fortunes
out of the cookies and then carefully fold and push your personalized fortunes
in to the cookies. You won't be able to place it in just the way
the original fortunes had been from end to end but, by folding them twice,
you'll be able to get them in all the way.
4. Place each cookie back into their
wrappings. Place a piece of tape on the end of your cookie so that
you can tell which one is yours later on.
5. After enjoying your dinner together,
hand her the cookie with her fortune in it. As you do, rip open the
end and let her remove it. Do the same with your cookie while she
is opening her piece of paper to read her fortune.
Now, watch her face light up as
she reads it. Of course, she will catch on almost immediately but
that one precious second of delight will produces laughs and smiles for
a long time to come. Once more, you will prove once again that you
are the man who goes the extra mile for her.
That's not luck. It's a foregone
DATE: Recognition Night
Okay, what did you learn about her in the last three dates?
Is there something that she told you in regard to a favorite activity or
event that she particularly enjoys? Forget about the things you want
to do. If you are seriously attempting to attract a female, then
find out what it is that she enjoys doing. Riding horses? Never
ridden a horse? Well, it is time to learn. Wine tasting at
a local winery? Never done it before? Take her to a winery
and learn how to taste wine like a pro! Recongnize what it is that
she has indicated are those things she enjoys and then plan a date to include
just what she enjoys most. You'll be her hero. I promise!
DATE: The Silent Chain Card
However, you must keep it concealed until after you have been
seated for awhile or possibly even after the food has been served.
| Pick up one of those greeting cards that has a nice
romantic picture on the outside but the inside is blank. Take it
with you on your next dinner date at a restaurant.
Then, take it out along with a pen and write on the inside
top, "What are the things that you are enjoying about our dating so far?
P.S. Only one rule: No talking about this note while we pass it back
Before you hand it to him/her to write something
like, "You make me laugh" under the question to start it off.
DATE: Live Concert Night
Music is the stuff of romance. So, does she like
good ole rock 'n' roll or classical music? Will it be jazz or hip
hop? Find out where the next concert is to be performed with just
the kind of music she loves best. Order tickets, take her to the
concert, and enjoy every musical note together. She will love you
for it. After all, isn't that what you want?
DATE: Sofa & a Movie
if she is so offended by the implications of such a choice that she decides
to go home before you even hit the play button?
|| Perhaps the two of you have not yet reached
the cuddling stage but, after several previous dates, there's nothing like
the bonding experience of viewing a really romantic video or DVD together;
especially if you feel comfortable enough to cuddle up on the sofa together
when you watch it.
However, be sure to pick out something together.
For example, some guys might think that choosing a porno flick would be
just the ticket.

DATE: A Day Trip
Where is it that she loves to visit? Okay, so it
is not somewhere that you would enjoy. That is the point. Find
out where she likes to go even if it is a mall or a nearby attraction.
Damn, if it is roller coaster riding at an amusement park, then climb on
board! The point is that spending a whole day together results in
two people bonding all the more. If that is what you want, then do
it! Am I making sense, or what?
DATE: An Indoors Picnic
|| Get out a nice blanket, lay it on the living
room floor (perhaps in front of the fireplace), set out whatever food items
you want to include, a bottle of wine, and two long-stemmed glasses.
Now, have fun.
Breakfast in Bed?
Chances are, you have already experienced
this with her by now. That is, if you have taken my advise regarding
the kinds of dates that speak to a woman's heart and soul.
Need I say any more?
