Actually the first dates are the most awkward of all dates. Finding a common ground or place to get started on the first date usually begins with conversation between us, so that I can find out about some of your likes and dislikes. But since that option is not available, I would suggest we meet for Breakfast or lunch and start our day early so as to have a variety of choices of activities we can do while getting to know one another. Maybe a movie or show, possibly a local concert or even a trip to the Arboretum for a nice stroll through the flowers. Of course, all these things depend on weather and availability. But the most important thing is for us to communicate, find out a little more about each other, and to have an enjoyable time.
