    Re: First date..outdoorsey ideas ... got any?

    Probably too suggestive for a first date, but if you could couch it in terms of science/outdoors, it may be very rewarding...

    The Perseid meteor showers are this week. Go to a park, get a blanket, and see what happens!

    Re: First date..outdoorsey ideas ... got any?

    The correct answer is to take her Frisbee Golfing.

    Everyone loves frisbee golfing, and it's a perfect first date. You basically are just hanging out for an hour or two, bad/good throws give a perfect opportunity for witty banter if you don't have much in common to talk about, and it perfectly lends itself to getting ice cream or something simlar afterwords.

    Plus even if it is ackward and doesn't go well, at least you got to go Frisbee Golfing.

    You can thank me later.

    I like where you're going with this. But to really get the full view of the sky you need to drive out in the country somewhere to get away from the light pollution. I'm guessing she'd probably call 911 half way out there. But I do love me some meteors. Already saw quite a few this weekend.

    That's true...that's what I'm doing, but my "date" is going to be my 9-year old son. You can still see some in the city, but it just wouldn't be as spectacular.

    It seems like this thread is a waste of time if she doesn't exist.
    On a side note, I just married my theoretical girlfriend over lunch at Arby's.

    Re: First date..outdoorsey ideas ... got any?

    If you can get her in a bikini go that route. That's the best route.

    Otherwise, the other idea are good too.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Frisbee golf and miniature golf are always good ideas. It doesn't feel uncomfortable or awkward if you don't hit it off right away. The witty banter can also be a pretty good ice-breaker. If nothing else, it at least allows you to see if your date has a sense of humor. IMO, no sense of humor, no second date.
