Whether you’re a true art buff or just along for the ride, this one’s a great quiet place for both of you to gauge each other’s interests and conversational skills. Choose a fun, exciting gallery or photo exhibit that’s not too obscure if you’re anxious about not having enough to talk about.
The first date is all about getting to know someone new. A first date will reveal information like whether or not your first-date partner thinks critically, has good taste (hehe), and considers himself cultured at all. What better way to do all that than by visiting an art exhibit? Plus it’ll get the two of you out of any awkward situations like where you’re trapped in matching threads at Chili’s while your appetizers are already served.
And I don’t know about you, but first date jitters can make it hard to keep a conversation going. You may not want to risk sharing the first kiss with someone who is terrible at small talk, so take your first-date partner here first. It’s super easy for anyone to comment on art pieces and ask questions, making it an interactive environment for everyone involved.
Just some friendly advice: avoid turtlenecks and tights on first dates – especially first date outfits that are solid colors. When visiting someplace like an art exhibit where you’ll be sitting down for most of the time, dressing comfortably is key. I also recommend wearing something that makes you feel attractive but relaxed because first impressions count!
And if first dates make you nervous, here’s a helpful first date idea: first date jitters actually benefit first-date partners. I know that sounds weird, but it makes sense! If someone is just as nervous as you are on your first outing together, you’re going to have a really great time laughing things off and trying to calm down at the same time. And ultimately if both of you leave the first date with a good impression of each other, there’s a much higher chance that second date will happen.
I hope this article helped! Whether your first-date partner is an avid art lover or just tagging along for fun, be sure to have an awesome first date by visiting an art gallery. You’ll find something everyone can appreciate because humans are a diverse bunch. Have a great first date!
