Planning is very important for a first date. You don't want to seem indecisive, so avoid a constant cycle of, “what would you like to do?” with your dating partner. The plan should be simple and definite. You don't want to have an elaborate first date, especially if you don't know the other person very well. Planning an afternoon at the carnival, for example, could be disastrous if your date fears rollercoasters, clowns, etc. Remember, the whole point of a first date is to get to know someone and to figure out if you'd like a second. Pick a location where the two of you can talk without being interrupted, but not one that is so secluded that it makes the date seem too intense. Keep the activities simple – you don't want to distract from actually getting to know the person.
