When you’re trying to come up with good date ideas, First Fridays might not be high up on your list or even an option at all. First Fridays is an event that occurs on the first Friday of each month (go figure) in which people take part in business networking and general schmoozing in a convention-like setting. Now, why in the world would you ever choose this as a dating venue? How is it creative instead of just pathetic? Well, this is the perfect forward-minded date idea – especially if you or your date is looking for a job or to switch careers.
What to Expect
Not only are there thousands of companies exhibiting at First Fridays, there are also a ton of things to see. If the two of you like going to conventions like comic book conventions or things like that, you’re sure to love this setting. It’s a fun and busy environment with a lot of things going on like a business festival or something. It’s worth mentioning as well that a lot of the booths set up at First Fridays will offer food and drink, even alcoholic ones for those who like to get a little tipsy while they walk around. It’s great to go from table to table with your girl and check out all the local talent. It’s especially fun to collect business cards and their various leave-behinds to either compliment or make fun of them later. if you really want to get creative after this whole thing, it’s especially fun to snip the words out of the cards and rearrange them to get hilarious results.
Looking Out For Her
If you or your date is looking for a job, then she’ll be incredibly happy that you were thinking about her success and you took her on a date where she could find somewhere she wants to work. It might not seem romantic to you, but knowing that you’re looking out for her might be just what she needed. This might not necessarily be a date that she’s bragging about to all her friends, but the two of you can make a night out of it easily. Go out to a nice restaurant beforehand and have a good meal together, go out for coffee afterwards, and just take your time. She loves you; she’ll be happy just getting to spend the entire day with you. She’ll especially love that she gets the ability to talk to you, unlike if the two of you had gone to a movie or a club where it’s too loud or rude to talk.
First Fridays might not be the most romantic date spot, but you can easily make it fun. It’s great to walk around with her and look at everything there and even come up with new inside jokes based on things that happened that day. And hey, it’s not like going to this convention is the only thing you guys can do the whole day. A dinner and dessert before and after your visit will make it a truly memorable day for you both.
