There’s so much to think about when you’re out there meeting new guys and dating.

What should I say to him so that I sound like the perfect combination of funny and sexy?

What should I wear so that I look attractive but don’t subliminally signal that he’s gonna get some tonight?

What is my exit strategy if this guy turns out to be a foot shorter than he said he was in his online dating profile?

With all these questions buzzing around your mind, it’s easy to overlook where you go on a first date.

Maybe you think if he’s cute and I’m cute, why does it matter where we go on our first date?

Sparks will fly, or they won’t, right?


Not all places were made equal when it comes to first dates.

Go somewhere and do something that will get you into a fun, flirty, feminine zone.

Don’t plan a date like you would a business meeting, then wonder why you’re just not feeling it.

A first date should be romantic and relaxed, and sensual.

So if a guy suggests doing any of the things I mention in the video, politely suggest something else that will really help you get to know each other and build attraction.

Key takeaway: never go on a first date to Dunkin’ Donuts. Just don’t do it. I promise it won’t end well.

For the 55+ crowd- Many are retired and lunch is great! Coffee/lunch/dinner and then a movie is fine-if both are dying to see a certain movie, maybe in a romantic movie theatre, sexy! Coffee dates are Wonderful-short and hopefully sweet! I rarely give a guy a first kiss-he can kiss my cheek. If I think I may kiss him-I drink tea!

I love your wild hair lol. I don’t mind coffee dates because you can really talk about a range of things, especially if a funky type venue with fireplaces etc. Agree with the rest!

I agree with don’t do #1, 2, & 4. Disagree about coffee dates. I had a first coffee date that lasted 3 hours, got lost in conversation & ended with a kiss. We dated for about 6 months. But go on a weekend when not time pressured by work- can find place with ambiance or outdoors if nice weather

Your hair looks great! Unlike the men I’ve been dating with no hair, lol I agree with you, don’t due lunch dates on weekdays but I do on weekends. And I would agree not so romantic! I agree with the rest. My issue is I am 50+ years, I have lots of energy, enthusiasm and positivity. I work out regularly. And I look younger than my age by 20 years. I get the 30 year olds and the men my age aren’t interested. Unfortunately, the men my age don’t have enough energy, no stamina, no interest, or have major health… Read more »

I’m right there with you ladies, but in the 70+ category.
I look, feel, act and have the attitude of a 50+ – honestly I have confidence, have never looked better and am more sure of myself and who I am than in any years before.
But you’re so right – the age-appropriate men are inappropriate for all the reasons you mention. I’m fine with the 55-60’s, and yet they still look at years in my life, not the life in my years!
Seems to be a problem for the ages!

Well, I went on three matchmade dates: one was a Starbucks meet-up, two were lunch dates. They were all blah. I didn’t get a spark on any of them. But the match-making organization that I was using just didn’t did me any good matches. All the guys were old codgers.

So, what places DO you recommend for a first and second date?

I personally enjoy movie dates because you have something in common to discuss afterward.

Absolutely agree about coffee dates – there is no privacy especially if everyone else is one their phone or laptop. I also hate coffee.

I enjoyed listening to what Adam said. Thank you, Adam. I still liked your hair.

I prefer some type of active date outside like a walk or trail. I get to be comfortable, get fresh air and some exercise so even if the date is not a love connection I at least get something out of it.

Writing to someone for a couple of weeks (if connecting on a dating site), seemed a good way for me and my partner to initially connect. So, when meeting in person, we had so much to talk about and already knew we liked on another and were both interested in starting a relationship with the other.
