If you use sites like Match.com, you'll probably find yourself going on quite a few dates. One of the questions I get a lot is, what sort of food would be ideal for a date? Not to sound boring, but standard foods usually work best. If you think about it, offering exotic foods before you know you're date's preferences could prove to be problematic. On the other hand, there are plenty of foods that just about everybody likes. Here are some ideas for foods you can eat on a first date.
Depending on your date, this may be a bit adventurous, but most younger people eat sushi on a semi-regular basis. If you live in places like California or Hawaii, you can't go wrong with this choice. On the other hand, if you live in more conservative areas, you might want to check with your date first. For the most part, sushi is tasty and also considered a bit on the high end, so you can't go wrong with it. Even if your date doesn't care for sushi, most restaurants have serve other kinds of Japanese food that might fit the bill.
This is idea for a lunch date, especially if you go on a picnic. Make at least two or three different kinds of sandwiches so you have different choices, in case one type of sandwich doesn't appeal to your date.
It's not necessarily the healthiest choice, but pizza is something everybody loves. It also goes well with beer, if you are inclined to drinking. Another great thing about going to a pizza restaurant is that pizza takes a while to make. For this reason, you will have plenty of time to have a nice conversation before the food arrives.
The most effective way to get a date in this day and age is to use a dating service such as Match.com. Free trials are available at Match along with many other dating websites. This is one way to sign up and get a few free days to see whether or not you want to stay with a given service. In most cases, you should be able to find a date within a month of joining a site.
