I am going to vote the drinks option - get to now her and see if she is normal!

Good luck

I agree with Kate, it's never a good idea to take a girl to the movies on a first date. Go to a pub with a pool table, that way you can impress her with your skills.

Anyway you don't have to hit the Coronas. You know, you don't need alcohol to have a good time...How am I trying to fool, break out the booze, some Ketamine, a little crack and get battered. Just remember, NO means NO. No matter how much she begs for it.

Pool sounds like a sexy option. The only danger is how she would take loosing. Or you could have a bet beforehand?... That's sexy too.

Well I stand corrected.

Drinks get my vote too

Bamberio said...

Playing pool is my preferred option for a first date:

Drinks, a bit of healthy competition, opportunities to chalk your cue in a suggetive manner and also the ability to subtly check out your date's arse as they bend over to take a shot.

Then if you really are kicking her (apparently sexy) arse, you can retire to the bar area and imbibe some intoxicating liquor to oil the wheels of romance.

Or something.

Good luck!

Cinema then drinks. Then you have something to talk about.

Fishy....

Thats what I think of the text - Total hunk???

Come on Fishy...

I reckon a nice dinner somewhere is a good call good luck dude

Little Sophie said...

I think I'm going to go with drinks here.
It kind of lowers the first date presure.
Pool is also a good option, but only if you don't trash her.
Girls generaly don't like it if they're brutaly beaten in any game.
Especially on a first date.
You don't have to let her win, she will know it when you do, but give her a chance to defend herself.

And don't brag about winning, you will never see her again if you do...

the pub. I personally can't have great conversation and play well (kind of like walking and chewing gum at the same time) but it gave me and this one guy a real fun time taking turns asking questions as we took our shots at the table.

Hunter said...

Pub and pool. Throw a game or two and hustle her. Maybe make a bet for date #2 if all is going well...

Sparkless said...

I'd pick the supper out with drinks. And if the supper goes well you can go out to the pub afterwards.

Meenakshi said...

Pub to impress, then drinks to know her better..

All the very best !

Claire said...

Pub is my vote. Cinema is not a good idea for a first date.

Miss OverThinker said...

My first option would be drinks - would loosen the two of you up so that the conversations are more easy flowing - I guess it has worked for me..

Morgan said...

I say Christmas markets! I have no idea what that is, but it sounds wonderful.

Unless it's the equivalent to mall, in which case that could be really boring. So if it is, I say pool and pub. Nothing wrong with that at all.

Pub and then pool.

Loosen her up with some drinks and then wow her with your talent, which may increase your chances of a second date.

Sarah said...

My votes (in order)
Christmas Markets
Pub
Pool

:) Have fun

plentymorefishoutofwater said...

Looks like pool and pub are winning. Not sure I'll be able to stop myself rubbing it in if I win though Little Sophie.
Thanks for your comments everyone.

Gillian said...

Drinks is a little impersonal. How about coffee and dessert? A little bit more romantic and you can leave early if she turns out to be a bunny boiler!

ByDSea said...

I vote Pool and Pub, then if she's rotten at pool you can teach her and that can be very sexy. Then maybe take her somewhere cute for coffee and dessert after wards like Gillian suggested...Good luck!

Aunt Juicebox said...

Drinks maybe, and pool. But even if she invites you back to her place, maybe it would be better if you don't try to score on the very first date. Just sayin'.

Kato said...

Two drinks...THEN pool. It will slow you down a bit and not hamper your er...performance later ;)

30-F-London said...

Fabulous news!!

I am going for the drinks option... make her laugh :)

Rapunzel said...

If that was the actual reply you got to your note, I don't know how to tell you this but it wasn't the hairdresser texting you...

My guess is that it will be you and Mullet Boy going on this date!

Wynn said...

Totally pool and a beer!

joeygirl said...

Defnitely pool.
It'll be guaranteed to be soaked in witty banter.
Good luck.

Lou said...

A date! That's great news!

Hmmm. Well, at Xmas markets they usually do mulled wine but i'm thinking that's not your drink of choice. So i would go with drinks at a pub or game of pool. Either option, drinks are involved and you can talk.

Just don't talk her to death.

E's said...

Go play pool at the pub. You can show off your skills a little while acting humble - women go for that. & there are many tacky puns to be made referencing pool sticks, balls, pockets...get creative.

Great blog BTW.

Mr. Knucklehead said...

I'd go with the drinks first, THEN pool. And I'd suggest subtly letting her win a couple times. That's just good form.

Another Face, said...

I'm going with Kate, the drink option sounds top :).

And if you get too drunk, just make sure she's off her game too. That plan never fails.

The pool idea is unbelievably cute British and I just love it. I would think it's adorable, but I don't know how other British girls think about it.

Good luck with your hairdresser :)

Shannon said...

i'd go for drinks and pool, and make sure you go easy to start. ideally, get a team situation going and pair up with her! good luck!

Marc said...

Definitely not the cinema, or as we call it here in the U.S. - the movies. You only go the movies on a first date if your date looks better in a dark theater.

Soda and Candy said...

Maybe I'm late to this but I advise against "thrashing" her at pool which implies a bit of making sure she knows how badly you beat her. It just seems impolite. That dfoesn't mean you can't play at all though, just maybe don't keep score or at least make sure you are not a "bad winner".

My now-husband taught me how to play pool (as a pair against his friends) and said he didn't care who won as long as we were having fun, in stark contrast to my previous BF who wouldn't let me be on his team because I wasn't any good and he wanted to win.

Chester said...

Well whatever you decided on Fishy, I hope all goes well, and it's a successful first date!

Hater Von G said...

I may be too late, but Id vote drinks.

Princess T said...

I vote dinner - come on, you're supposed to be wooing her! And for god's sake, offer to pick her up. And bring flowers.

And for the record, do all guys think/hope for sex on the first date? I mean really?! Haha poor suckers who date me...

Princess T said...

And yes I just realised my comment was after the fact, but I hope whatever you did went well!

Michael said...

My thing is dinner and drinks, the good restaurants and bars that treat me well, know me well. I think over dinner, you easily can get straight into getting to know the other person. You talk about food, then your mother's cooking, then your hometown and family, and then a bit about difficult career choices, what you do, what you do outside work, and that melts into the venue for drinks. At the bar/pub/club, you may dance, talk about favorite drinks, funny dating experiences, and then MAYBE the... sex stuff.

And that's my cue to stop. That's my formula. It's a bit inappropriate for me to treat all my dates the same, but I found a girl I love in the end. :)
