    So I am 19 I would really like to go on a date with a girl that I really like and its just going to be a get to know you date for now. The only thing is I don't know where we would go, I don't want to goto the movies because you do get to talk to people at the movies. Please help me out if you can.

    First date is never movies. Especially if its a casual thing. Find out what she likes and do something based on that.

    Ask her friends or bring it up in conversation but be subtle about it

    If you don't know her real well maybe try making it a group thing but during the night focus your attention on her and get to know her. You should be able to find out some stuff about her and then you can ask her on an official first date.

    One of my favorite first dates was always going for a walk. Not everyone is into but I like it for a few reasons. It offers a huge opportunity to get to know her, your looking ahead of you so you don't have to be constantly making eye contact which can be akward on a first date, its free, and depending on where you live it can be pretty romantic.

    Good luck regardless on what you do.

    I agree on the group thing if you want to keep it safe.

    I also think 'going for a nice walk' is a great idea. It fits me well but it might not fit you or her. If it does tho, a nice long walk is a great way to enjoy the day and keep in conversation (make sure you plan random topics that DONT include your droid :)).

    Go to the park!

    Casual lunch. Just tell her you like her and want to hang out, chat and eat. You don't have to go any further than that for now

    I am all for the walking idea, my current gf of 2+ years told me "you know, it was our walks that sealed the deal for me"

    We used to go spend 2 hours walking around just talking getting to know eachother

    maybe theirs a nicer/ kinda casually type restaurant/cafe you guys can walk to rather than drive, if theres a park around there take a detour on the way home

    btw, im 21 so our walks started when I was 18 :)

    i like to take girls putt-putting or bowling on first dates, its not too expensive, can be really fun and you dont have to be concentrating on conversation topics the whole time. just make sure you're good at it before the date lol

    What is putt putt? I refuse to acknowledge anyone who calls mini golf, putt putt! Haha jk. I went to school in the Midwest and 2 things that drove me mad were calling mini golf putt putt and calling soda, "pop"

    "I have a little something here I'd like to give you before the date."

    Slap

    "No that comes after the date."

    "No open it!"

    "Oh....but I already have a phone"

    "This is a Droid. It's customizable and you'll spend hours upon hours with it. You can root it for high performance, you can customize it by using different ROM's."

    "OMG. You're a geek! Um, look, I gotta headache and my Aunt is sick so maybe some other time......."
