Philadelphia is home to a wide variety of dudes, with all different dating personalities and intentions. This quick rundown will help you navigate through all the guys who aren't looking for the same thing as you by where they suggest going on the first date.
- Coffee: This guy doesn't have the money to go on a lot of dates but definitely wants to play the field. By taking you out for the most low maintenance and low cost date possible it's a giant red flag if you are looking for instant commitment. I say go on the first date if you are intrigued, but pay attention to where you go for the 2nd and 3rd date.
- Drinks: Though the most common, I would urge both parties to stray away from drinking on the first date. You can like just about anyone when you are drinking together. How many times have you thought you liked someone over drinks only to find you have zero chemistry when sober? Also guys who want to get you drunk on the first date are most likely just trying to smash.
- Food: You can't go wrong with food. if a drink or two comes along organically then that's fine but I still recommend avoiding it all together.
- An activity. I like leaving this for the second date because you really do need the first date to be more of an interview and get that out of the way. However, if you are just looking for a partner to do fun activities with, this could be the way to go.
