My idea of an ideal first date would be something laid back where we can mostly talk and get to know each other. If it is nice outside my favorite is a picnic at the beach or park sounds good. If not then an indoor picnic or dinner at a nice restaurant will do as well. I have found that movies are not a good first date as they limit the discussion to almost nothing. During the date the guy must be attentive to me and also be able to hold my attention. He must be a good conversationalist, and be able to give and recieve body language well. I find body language a fantastic communicator. On a date I like a man who is willing to speak his feelings and show them as well.
