first date ideas: Make each other playlists

“So, what are you listening to?”

This first date classic is always an easy conversation starter. Build on this question by getting to know each other through your favorite tunes, then have a dance party.

(Side note: if you’d like to take it one step further, try creating Spotify playlists for each other before the first date!)

Here are three first date ideas that don’t include dinner and movie… because who has time for dinner and movies anymore? Who can say how long it will take them? I’m sure Netflix isn’t planning on canceling anything anytime soon so let’s not rush love! And here they are…

1. Playlist swap + dancing at home

  The first step is creating these fun playlists for each other. Try not to think too hard about it because first dates are first dates and nobody really knows the other person yet! Just have fun with whatever comes to mind first.

The next step is making the first move, so that could go one of two ways:

– If you’re feeling bold, just hold your hand out for his phone and ask him if you can put in some music.

– Or, be an adult and ask him what he would like to listen to first (seriously though, be an adult). Then give him a chance to make his first pick without interruption.

Once the first song starts playing, start dancing (by yourself or together) until the song ends. You will probably feel silly, but that’s okay.

When the next song starts, you choose if you want to dance together or alone.

Repeat this process until songs start repeating, then just sit and talk for a minute with a sweet first date glow before going on to the next first date idea…

2. Take turns interviewing each other

What is your favorite food? What was an embarrassing moment from high school? If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would it be? What superpower would you like to have? Why do you think people first started dating? If your life had a soundtrack, what music would play during which scene?

Adding these questions into a playlist will make them easy to ask as each song plays. It also eliminates the awkward silence that comes with first date jitters.

The first person will start interviewing the next person when the first song starts. The first question is “what is your favorite food?” (this also becomes a great appetizer for getting to know each other). Then answer his questions as the songs play and notice how much more you learn about him by what he chooses! When it’s your turn to start, start with an easy one like “what is your favorite food?”

After doing this for 5-10 minutes, take turns telling each other three things you learned about them through their playlist.

3. Make dinner + watch one of your first date ideas on Netflix

  If it doesn’t feel right to just dance around at home then cook a first date dinner to the perfect playlist. Yes, first dates are first dates so it’s okay to have standard first date ideas like dinner at home!

You can each cook your best dish or you could do something fun like cooking together. If you go this route, try to plan out what dishes you will be making ahead of time so that nobody has to struggle with cutting vegetables while other people are waiting for their food (been there, done that first date).

When all is said and done, eat first then enjoy one of these first date ideas on Netflix (the entire first season of Stranger Things starts streaming on October 31st… hint hint). The playlists you create should pair nicely with whatever movie/tv show/documentary you choose!

After first date glow has worn off, take the time to talk about how you’re feeling, what you thought of first date ideas and maybe even plan a second first date. If there’s still first date glow left over and it feels right, then go for another first date idea… like dancing around your living room until midnight. The possibilities are endless!

Thanks so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed these first date ideas as much as I do… Good luck with first dates post-Rad Girls Club! xoxo, R.
