Great First Date Ideas

It’s 2024 and it’s time to really update your dating game because fancy dinners on the first date were so last year. No longer will you have any bad date as these first date ideas will have them coming back for more.

The last thing you want to do is take a girl out to dinner that you struggle to connect with. Generally what would happen is she will either message one of her friends under the table to do the emergency call “Omg Samantha just got into a car accident” then all of a sudden your date is the only one with her blood type and has to rush to the hospital immediately.

You offer to take her but miraculously her other friend is at the front of the place you took her waiting for her. The trick is with first dates, keep them short, simple and playful but always have a backup plan teed up if you do kick it off. Below I’m going to give you some tips, tricks and date idea’s to keep it very fun, playful and get you that “Yes” when you ask to take her out again.

  • Sushi:

The great thing about Sushi is that everyone loves sushi. If your date does not love sushi, I suggest finding a new person to take to sushi. Just kidding, please see next point if this one does not suit your date (I’m out of options if the point below doesn’t work). Really though, the great thing about Sushi is the fact that it isn’t expensive and won’t cost you an arm or leg, it’s a very bubbly yet casual environment where conversation isn’t really hard to flow, and the great thing is, if you run out of talking points.

All you have to do is have 2-3 plates and say you’re full. Also you can go with the whole cute approach and get her to try one that she hasn’t had before, it shows that you’re adventurous and willing to try new things cough Extreme BDSM.


Pro Tip: Depending on how your date goes, Sushi can always lead to Ice Cream or a nice viewing spot in the city. Take the time to research the key viewing spots in the city. Don’t be a creep and take her to the darkest one and when she asks if you take all your “hoes” here, say no that’s the other spot, this one is sacred.


  • Burgers:

Not just any burgers, take 5 minutes out of your day and look up the best 10 burger joints in either your area, the area your date is from or in the CBD. The best is when they haven’t been to the one you’re suggesting, so it comes as a “Ohhhhh his different” type and most likely they will love the fact that you have her trying something new. Great thing about burgers is that everyone loves them and they are a little naughty cheat meal which is also quick.


Pro Tip: This one follows the Pro Tip above, but because you had a heavy meal, go to a viewing spot where you can get out, stretch your legs a little or go into the city or a nice harbor spot and get ice cream but make it a walk and talk sort of date, this will help you burn calories and also take away the heavy sluggish feeling that generally makes you want to go home.

  • Ice cream:

You can never, ever go wrong with Ice cream. Now there are two ways you can go about this one. You can either look up the best voted Gelato in your City, for me (Sydney) it’s Anita until the next one pops up. Most of the time if it’s a new spot, they would not have been, so  again you have the element of trying something new and being playful. The great thing about an Ice cream date is

  1. It’s extremely playful, trying all the different flavours and
  2. Depending on what your date is like, it can be extremely quick
  3. If it’s a good date, you can always suggest a good spot with a nice view point.


  • Coastal Walk/Scenic Walk:

You can’t beat a solid scenic view because you’re being active, with a stunning backdrop and it just allows a little le-way for awkward moments of silence. Most girls love a guy who enjoys the outdoors and gets active. This shows you have some substance to you instead of the typical lets go to a nice restaurant to I can pick up the pill. There is some great coastal beach walks around Sydney that will take around an hour or an hour an half. A great follow up after this would be a nice lunch or breakfast around if the date does go smooth.

  • Art:

Pro Tip: Make sure that when you pick up or meet up with your date, have a bottle of water each for the both of you. This will show that you’re considerate and also if you do snag a cheeky kiss, you won’t have a dry mouth.

The Most Important Of All Is How You Act On Your First Date:
