When deciding where to take a first date in Aberdeen you need to complete the following check list: Do you really like the person? Do you want this to progress to a relationship? Do you want to get in their pants? If you have answered yes to any of those questions you may need to put a bit more thought than going down your local into your date plans (although don’t get me wrong, I have known of guys taking girls down their local and ‘closing the deal’ after a few shandys – kudos to them, they must have the charm of George Clooney) Below we have put together a list of the top 3 places for a first date in Aberdeen and the kind of result you should be expecting from each, enjoy:
A Fancy Restaurant – This is a classic romantic choice throughout decades, so is always a good safe bet. If your date is someone you’ve known for a while; a friend, colleague or friend of a friend, then you will generally know if you like the person and if you’re wanting more than just sex a restaurant could be the perfect option for your first date. As a woman I would interpret a first date venue of a restaurant as a sign the guy wanted to spend time getting to know me outside the bedroom. So, you may choose somewhere like The Prime Cuts restaurant in Aberdeen, they offer a great selection of dishes so no matter your dates tastes there will be something on the menu to please you both.
The Cinema – A cinema date is a good way for you to gage if you are attracted to the person, if you’ve met online or got each other’s numbers on a night out when beer goggles were if full effect it’s a good way to meet up with them again without promising too much. You don’t really get to chat and get to know each other better on a cinema date, so it just gives you both a chance to work out if the spark that’s needed to make a relationship work is actually there.
A Bar – Meeting in a bar or a pub on a first date can be a great idea if you’re feeling a little nervous as everyone well knows alcohol lowers your inhibitions… this said, is that always such a good thing? If you want to get to know the person better it could be perfect for loosening both your tongues, but you need to make sure you don’t blow your chances by getting too drunk. One of my girlfriends went on a date with a guy that got so drunk he tried paying for drinks with his driving license and while waiting for a taxi used her leg as a urinal, trust me, you NEVER want to be that guy. Why not keep it classy and choose somewhere like Upstairs Wine Bar in Aberdeen? You can have a couple of drinks to get you chatting while keeping it tasteful. They have a great choice of cocktails for you to choose from and the relaxed atmosphere will give you the perfect background to talk and get to know each other.
So, decide first of all what you want to get out of the date then you can make the decision of where to go, but most importantly enjoy your dating times because whether they go well or not you can make some great memories.
