These days, everyone is dating online. I rarely come across someone who meets someone through a class, or a mutual friend. Everyone is on Tinder, OkCupid, POF, and many others. If you’re like the many college students out there, meeting someone from offline for the first time can be nerve wracking. I’ve had plenty of first dates from one of those dating sites. Picking a first date with someone you’ve never met can be anxiety provoking! I’ve found that the best bet is either a coffee date or a lunch date.
If you're out of ideas for dates, try bowling! I know it may sound lame, but I've gone on bowling dates and they are really fun. First off, you get to see your partner in a competitive environment. This can reveal things about their character. With me, my dates knew instantly that I was a competitive person. I don't like losing, which is something they learned about me. Then you can go as a group date, which makes it more fun because then you can compete couple versus another. You can later get dinner, take a break, and talk to each other. The best is backlight bowling!
