I have a date comming up and was looking for something interesting to do on it. She has said she isn't keen on going to dinner on a first date and i find the cinema a bit impersonal
How about going to Foleys on a Wednesday night, they often have very good music and the crowd are good and its not too busy and is close to a club(sinbin). The music isn't too loud so you can still carry a conversation
Unigolf out by UL, it's relatively cheap a fun activity and you will be able to talk and get to know each other out there instead of being blasted by music, if you're looking for something to do that doesn't involve getting bladdered then that would be my suggestion.
my best dates in limerick have been a match in thomond park, or a day trip to bunratty castle/folk park - a couple of drinks in bunratty after
often trying to think of alternatives to the pub myself ..
I'll second the bunratty trip. It's really good once the weather is ok..
What's wrong with dinner?
Cheers for the suggestions guys, hadn't thought of bunratty
She refuses to go to dinner for first dates- not really sure why tbh
Op, that made me laugh....haha seems so silly now, but i didn't eat in front of my bf for weeks when we first starting seeing each other!
sitting facing each other afraid to drop something down your front, take a mouthful of food and burn the mouth off yourself etc.....can be a bit too formal, feel like you're in the spotlight....
then there's the awkwardness of the bill, afraid of ordering something expensive, ordering a big steak and ur date just has a salad etc!!!
(i once went to the cinema, ordered a large coke and popcorn and my date didn't get anything for himself but produced an apple an a mandarin from his pocket once we had sat down!! turned me off my goodies!!)
Fair enough Amybabes.
I guess it's a long time since I went on a first date and have forgotten the awkwardnesses....
reminded me of my cousin that could peel an orange in his pocket and every so often you'd see him dipping in for a segment and discarding the peel from his pocket at the same time, then slipping the piece of orange in his mouth when he thought nobody was looking!
You could go to a Bible Study Meeting and explore the meaning of the salvation of OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST together.
Why not bring her back to your place for coffee
