It’s one thing to get a woman to agree to go on a date with you, but it is another thing entirely to actually impress her once you’re on the date. You need to pick your date location carefully so that you can still make a good impression and possibly score a second date with her. Otherwise, you may as well have wasted your time and effort. There are some date locations and ideas that women are just going to automatically hate. These are the ideas that you should avoid as much as possible when you are trying to pick where to take her and what to do. As long as you don’t do these sorts of dates, you stand a much better chance of getting to go out with her again.
1. Meeting Your Family or Any Family Events
You might think that there’s nothing wrong with taking her to meet your family, but you would be dead wrong. There’s nothing more awkward than being forced to meet a guy’s family the first time you go out on a date with him, or even if you’ve already been out on a few dates already. You should always discuss family events and parties with your girlfriend carefully before taking her to any of them. Chances are, she doesn’t want to meet your family just yet. Even if she’s okay with the idea of meeting your family, there is really nothing worse than being forced to listen to a family’s inside stories and jokes while you have no way to escape. It’s pretty much the opposite of romantic, even if it’s a wedding. there’s just no way she would want to go to one of these events, so try to avoid this if you can, or you could wind up wasting all the effort that it took to get you to that point with her.
2. Anything at a Sports Bar
You might think sports bars are amazing, but chances are that she doesn’t share that opinion. If there’s a game you just have to see, then you should reschedule your date – don’t try to drag her along to a sports bar to watch the game there. Even if she’s into the sport, the point of a date is to get to know each other, not struggle to get your attention over the game that you’re watching. It’ll be too crowded and noisy to really get anywhere with her, and there’s nothing romantic or sexy about having to scream over everyone else to be heard.
3. Taking Her to a Strip Club
If this isn’t obviously a bad idea, then you might need to reconsider your life choices. Taking a woman to a strip club on a date is about as bad of an idea as you can possibly come up with. She will definitely not appreciate having to watch you slobber over other women, so this is definitely something you should never do. If you’re looking for an alternative, then the only possibility that isn’t downright terrible would be a burlesque show. It’s almost the same thing, but it’s more sensual and she might actually enjoy it.
4. Doing Stuff with the Guys
Going on a date with your friends should seem like a bad idea to you automatically, but if it doesn’t, we’ll spell it out for you. You’re not going to get anywhere with your girlfriend if you’re busy entertaining your buddies, and she’s not going to appreciate having to compete for your attention. It’s really not a good way to date, so try to avoid inviting anyone else with you if you want to go on a date with your girlfriend. She might want to hang out with your friends, but not when she’s expecting a nice date that she can use to get to know you.
5. Taking Her to the Club
Clubs are not where you should take dates – they’re where you should find dates. You won’t have much fun shouting over each other and trying to be heard, and it’s just not a classy place to take a girl you’re trying to date. Consider going dancing somewhere quieter and more exclusive, if dancing is what you want to do. Otherwise, take her to a classy place with live music, but not a club. Clubs are just too hectic to really get anything done on a date, and she’ll hate the idea of it. It’s not a good idea if you’re trying to get to know her or get close to her.
