Movie dates, mall dates, coffee dates. There's nothing wrong with an easygoing get together, but first dates and dates beyond the first date don't have to be so typical! Making a date special is all about thinking outside of the box. I find that planning a date that deviates from the conventional “go-to”s is a great way to explore each of your interests and to experience something a little different for a change. Here are a few ideas for an unconventional date that might even earn you a second one!
1. Always, always, ALWAYS stock up on frozen meals before finals.

Here are my sarcastic and hopefully helpful tips to avoid screwing up your first date!
