A great first date is when there is a connection that leads to good conversation. I guess I'm an old fashioned gal who wants to be friends first and see where it leads. That emotional, intellectual connection is the top desire I have!

A great date isn't defined by location or activity, it's if the OTHER person is interesting, funny and pleasant to be around.

I choose to sparkle!

Ummm, def. we would have to do something that would envoke a great conversation. We would loose track of time. Being a gentlemen would be second nature to him.

My ideal first date would be with someone who's my equal intellectually, or my better. I'd want to be able to chat and throw ideas and questions out to him and be able to receive his input back...doesn't matter if we have different ideas about things..what does matter is how we'd both handle those differences. The ideal setting? A quiet restaurant with a nice glass of wine. Relaxed atmosphere with perhaps a fireplace for gazing, soft background music, and soft lighting. I want him to feel at ease and just enjoy visiting with me, and vice versa.

I truly believe in myself!

I will contribute to this discussion again, I hope the guys are reading these...

The first date should be simply FUN! Have fun, don't get melodramatic or too intimate, keep some mystery there, but make it so there are laughs upon laughs to be had during that first date

I would lean toward something simple for the first date. I don't want a movie, or somewhere noisy, I want to be friends first. I want honesty and compassion. I don't want to be woo'd off my feet. I want friendship and respect. Anyone who is willing to sit and talk with me over a glass of tea etc is perfect. I also want him to get to know my parents before we date. I know that is very old fashioned but I respect my parents opinion highly and they play a big roll in my life. I don't want to be alienated from them at some future date.

God has given me this romantic notion of what love is to be. I think for me the first date would just be that moment that the LORD reveals to me that the mysterious guy and me are together for His purpose. It wouldn't have to be any place magically, because God's grace is sufficient. Song of Songs 3 gives a beautiful description of how I feel the thing is suppose to go down.

Maybe coffee and lunch at a book store. Or even going for a nature hike. I love to read so if he wants to talk books he can get some brownie points.

a nice date would be a classic moon light walk after a nice movie

Art gallery, museum, botanical gardens...there is always something to talk about. Even if the company turns out to be not so good, the surroundings can usually make up for it.

A rose or flower will definately make a great first impression! I like to go to a public place for coffee to talk n get to know each other! I've been hurt twice so I am more cautious! Once burnt twice shy!

No need to expect a kiss, although on most first dates it is welcome. Dinner and anything like walking through the park or hanging out with friends to get us talking to each other. Flowers make women feel like princesses! Just one rose bud is all it takes.

Coffee or a mid-day stroll. Public place. If I am given the opportunity to spend a couple of hours with a person in the middle of the afternoon, I will know pretty quickly if I want to know him more.

Hello all, I know all too well what its like to be hurt by guys especially on line. Its something to do for them to play with women's emotions and lie to them even thou their girl friend or wife in their lives and they know that there is no real connection or romance with the person they are chatting to on line, but to get the women's hopes up for no reason then go away and leave the women sad,depressed,and have low self esteem. But i have learned what doesnt kill you only makes you stronger and im not quit as gullible to these players on line. Who dont like me for me its their loss cos iam one of the nicest, sweetiest person your ever gonna meet. So yes i agree our time will come when we least expected and i have been waiting for a long time.

Be the best person you can be.

That's funny. I was having a conversation with my Mother about how God can COMPLETELY change your life in no time at all. Our time will come probably when we least expect it. Until that time...we have each other to vent to! :)

Yeah, I know what you mean. It seems like there really just isn't very many good guys out there! And I TOTALLY know what you mean about the married guys. What is up with that?? I'm an OIF veteran, and when I was in Iraq, there wern't a lot of girls around, so it was a given that the guys would hit on you. But the VAST majority of the guys who would hit on you were married. It was TOTALLY ridiculous. I would remind them of the fact, and it's like it didn't even phase them. Pretty disgusting! I felt bad for the poor, clueless women waiting for them at home.

On the other hand, I have met a few guys who would never DREAM of cheating...naturally, they're married as well. Those women are lucky! I'm sure if we continue to be patient, God will yank some good guys out of the woodwork for each of us. Luckily God has a WAY better imagination that I do, because most days I just can't picture it! emoticon

Wow! You had my eyes going a little blurry imagining Mr Dream Date! Imagine...actually coming to the door and having a plan! LOL
The last interested guy would call and say "Are you decent? I thought I'd drop by". And that was ALL he had planned...literally.
Then there are the married guys at work who like to hang out in my office and make veiled innuendos. emoticon Surely there is a good guy with integrity and manners looking for someone like me!
Before I get off my soapbox... Shelly, I LOVE your prayer!

Um, quite frankly I think you hit the nail on the head.

Everything you said sounds top notch. I want to add to it.

I think it is absolutely mandatory that you find a setting for the first date where the two of you can really talk. Whether it be a restaurant or an outdoors setting I feel it is so very important to be able to get to know as much as possible about each other in that first date. Really, if he is a dud why would you want to waste another friday night on him. You could have figured it out with some good conversation time the first time around.

I live right on the ocean in Daytona Beach, FL so I am thinking that it would be nice to have dinner and then take a walk on the beach at night, but not too late.

II Corin 10:5
You have given me the power to pull down all my old mental strongholds and take control of every wayward thought, imagination and impulse.

Lord, please help me tear down the mental strongholds that have caused me to overeat in the past. In their place I ask you to help me form new, healthier mindsets. Ones which will help me honor the temple which you have given me.
In Jesus' name.
Amen

Personally, I've been on very FEW really great dates in my life. It seems like a lot of guys just don't put the effort out there to really sweep a girl off her feet anymore, you know?

It isn't that I think I have to be wined and dined...not at all. But I really notice it when a guy puts a little thought and attention into the thing.

First of all, I want the guy to ask ME out. I don't want to have to hint or wheedle or manipulate my way into getting the date. We've all done it. We've all batted our eyelashes and laid the flirt on thick until the poor cornered thing stuttered out the words we wanted to hear. It's just not as satisfying, though, is it?

I love it when the phone rings or a guy approaches you that you had NO IDEA was interested...he was only interested in your WILDEST fantasies...and there he is, sweating like a pig, hoping you won't reject HIM. It's the best feeling!

So...established...the guy askes ME out...I'm completely giddy because I didn't see it coming...

So...after hours and hours of primping--the kind of primping where we get the brand new SHARP razor out to clean up those legs--when I know I'm looking 110% my best self, he picks me up, AT THE DOOR...no honking his horn from the curb or calling the phone to say, "Oh yeah...I'm outside..." No...Mr. Dream Date picks me up at my doorstep. He tells me I look like a million bucks...not lavishly..but with a quiet appreciation that radiates from his eyes...

Mr. Dream opens the doors for me, makes sure I buckle my seat belt and then he he DOES NOT ask me what I want to do. NO...Mr. Dream already has something planned. I don't care what it is. I don't care if it's a fantastic dinner at the best new restaurant in town or if it's racing bumper cars...the point is, Mr. Dream took the time to plan out this date. He cared enough about impressing me that he put some THOUGHT into it. Extra bonus points if Mr. Dream actually knows me well enough to know what I like, but on a first date, ANY premeditated effort goes a LONG way...

The activity is fun. The conversation is great. Mr. Dream is polite and respectful, and HE PAYS. Even when I offer to split the check he refuses (maybe if this advances to a relationship he'll let me treat occasionally, but this is not the rule...I'm old fashioned!) He doesn't forget his wallet. He doesn't inform me that he didn't bring enough money to cover the cost of both of us. Again, Mr. Dream planned ahead and was prepared...

Mr. Dream does not keep me out too late. He respectfully takes me home at a decent hour, even if the date is going REALLY well and neither of us want it to end yet. Mr. Dream does NOT try to finangle an invitation inside. Mr. Dream walks me to my door, and doesn't try anything, even if I'm giving him THE LOOK...

No...Mr. Dream saves that one for Date two...
