Hey Guys, Women LOVE Creative First Dates!
Real women respond to the article we ran earlier this week about the creative first date ideas men are too shy to propose.
On Monday, we ran an article called “First Dates Guys Thought Up But Would Be Scared to Try Out” by our resident straight guy, Justin DeMarco. In the piece, several men propose uncommon first date ideas that they would love to take a girl on, but assume they’d just get rejected.
I wasn’t the only one reading the article saying to myself, “But I would go on that date!” In fact, the truth is, women don’t want the old dinner-and-a-movie song and dance. We’d much rather be asked to do something more substantial, fun, and interesting.
In the words of one Betty reader, “PLEASE take us on fun activity dates!” says Taryn, 28, from New York City. “Any guy that takes the time to think about something I might enjoy that’s new and different gets major points.”
“Women are dying to go on creative dates,” adds Andrea, 34, from Santa Monica. “Anything that gets us to go beyond the ‘resume’ conversation is a great way to build chemistry, fun, trust and relatedness. If men want to be creative on dates, DO IT!”
In fact, BettyTalk member pogmathoin commented on Justin’s piece, “Where do I meet a guy like the ones in this article?”
