To take the pressure off of your shoulders, book tickets for a comedy club in your town and enjoy some drinks whilst enjoying the show and your date.
Go for drinks
You’ll probably feel a bit apprehensive about your first date with a love interest; it’s important to ensure the atmosphere is relaxed, what better way to get rid of first date nerves than over a few drinks? Another great thing about going to a bar is that the date is quite casual, so if you decide that you’re not interested in the person, or that there is no spark between you, you can make your excuses and then a quick exit!
Music gig or a sporting event
Go and watch your favorite band or sports team, these ideas guarantee a casual atmosphere for you to get to know your date better and determine whether or not you actually like them, and if you aren’t particularly attracted to your date the event will act as a good distraction.
