Top 10 Things You’d Like To Do On A First Date

gothic-lolita-cafe-by-ginta

Japanese asked what it is they would most like to do on a first date yield a list of activities likely to please the budget-concious.

The ranking:

1. Go for a drive (2968)

2. Watch a movie (2588)

3. Appreciate a night view together (1374)

4. Have tea at a cafe (1359)

5. Dine at a bar [izakaya] (1245)

6. Relax at home (837)

7. Shopping (689)

8. Play sports together (286)

9. Karaoke (240)

10. Fine dining at a restaurant (146)

The lack of car ownership amongst younger Japanese may yet prove a problem – though otherwise the activities selected seem surprisingly modest.

As to how to actually ensure that the date goes well – see the earlier ranking.

    I'm surprised so many people are dissing - admiring the night sky.

    For one - it gives off the opportunity to talk and interact. Which is the point of a first date. This is why I usually don't like stuff like movies.

    It's only boring if you or her are boring people with nothing to talk about.

    For me a succesful date is less how much money he spends on me, and more how well we can talk about almost nothing, or alternatively serious topics, and generally get along.

    If you're going to view it as a transaction of money for sex, you're going to get boring, unenthusiastic sex from a ho. Enjoy your passive aggresive attitude to women.

    Some of the best dates I've had consisted of spending 0$ money, or going dutch, but being taken to non-cliche place, like a cool belvedere spot over the city... or the best view of a park from a secluded bench, or by the waterside, with a couple of beers to see the sunset, or a dirt cheap cafe with a lot of character.

    The worst dates were dates where you could SEE the ENTITLEMENT bursting out of the top of their heads as they take me to a crappy, pretentious superexpensive restaurant, and just basically wait for the night to be over to propose sex. FAIL.

    There's nothing more off-putting about a guy who thinks he's entitled to your body.

    Unfortunately, some guys are just too stupid to see this. "Hey, I can't win your attraction normally, so I'll try to BUY it! That'll work for sure!"

    I'm all about cheap dates, mainly because I'm poor. If I have to buy an expensive meal, I've already lost. It's much cheaper and more romantic to just sit on a hill and chat.

    Of course, that's "boring" to most here, even though it could easily lead to sex. Some people just have no clue.

    "admiring the night sky (...)

    It's only boring if you or her are boring people with nothing to talk about."

    I say, just enjoy the moment. Whether you talk or not doesn't really matter. At one point or another either of you will say or ask about something and before you know it you'll be talking for hours and possibly lose the track of time if it goes well enough, no matter how boring you are.

    How come "go for a drive" is so high on the list when cars aren't common in Japan for young people because public transport is so convenient and most young people prolly cant afford a place with carpark ? Are they planning to steal a car ?

    Because it implies the partner is rich enough to own a car. When have you ever seen a poor guy in anime driving his own car (exclude small businesses).

    People calling for sex on a first date are just inexperienced virgins who can only associate dating with sex because sex eludes them forever.

    Please go get laid.

    I'm a virgin and it'll probably stay that way forever, but even I don't associate dates with sex.

    Personally, in my fantasy world where everything goes as I plan, I could date a girl indefinitely, even if sex didn't happen after the n'th date as long as I knew there's love between both of us. All that matters to me is the time spent together and memories. That's pretty much all I want. Of course I wouldn't mind if I got laid, but it's not necessarily a top priority for me right now.

    Yeah, I do realize I made myself look like a loser, but oh well. It can't get any worse than it already is.

    As a car owner in Japan I can say that outside the cities cars are VERY common. You kids seem to forget that Japan isn't all Tokyo and big cities. There's millions outside the cities where you need cars.

    And even though I've only had two long relationships here, both my my girlfriends favorite things to do was to just go on a random drive for no reason.

    Go for a drive is anything but cheap in Japan.
    Depend on where you live, without the highway you can't go far without getting stuck somewhere in traffic, and highways are expensive. Car parking is just as expensive.

    Sure it's fun to say go and fuck like bunnies somewhere, but that's not called a 'date' in my universe, that's just looking for casual sex (nothing wrong with that though).

    1. Go for a drive (2968)
    As long as there is a point.

    2. Watch a movie (2588)
    As long as something is playing worthy of both.

    3. Appreciate a night view together (1374)
    This should happen on any variation.

    4. Have tea at a cafe (1359)
    This is a nice start.

    5. Dine at a bar [izakaya] (1245)
    Slightly better than tea at cafe.

    6. Relax at home (837)
    No the point of a date is to go somewhere.

    7. Shopping (689)
    Kinda meh.

    8. Play sports together (286)
    Not ideal though.

    9. Karaoke (240)
    Fine if you are Japanese

    10. Fine dining at a restaurant (146)
    I find this is the second half of a nice movie out.

    I would pick #5 #10 #3 in that order.

    I doubt I would date a girl a second time that spreads her legs in the first 10 dates. I'd fuck her good if she offered, but she'd likely eventually realize being easy means you only meet guys that want to fuck.

    I would only 'date' a girl I was considering marrying, and I wouldn't marry a girl that was 'easy'.

    well fucking like bunnies is part of a date. its not like you just call up most women and say "lets fuck like bunnies all day" you have to bullshit them, and when it comes to it, have that, i never planed to fuck but while we are on the subject iv been waiting for this all day.

    I'd say it is more the usual hope for an after of the date.

    A fuck and a date really don't sound the same to me. You can still go on dates with someone you 'secured' and not be all that craving for sexual favors on that precise day, but just wanting to mutually enjoy the company.

    On the reverse, you don't always have to 'trick' anyone with a date when you just want that person home, for videogames, long speaking and in-depth introduction, or sex.

    In the Philippines, you have to do this on a certain province.

    Make sure her parents approve of you by doing errands.

    - you have to run and fetch water from a mountain.
    - chop wood.
    - milk the goat
    - fix the roof
    and so on for months

    then that is the time you can date the girl.

    I am seeing some massive overreactions here.

    Going for a drive can be very relaxing, especially at night, it's possible to drift into a state of trance just staring at the lights going past (not recommended if driving).

    Watching a movie doesn't necessarily mean in the cinema; it could include watching a film at home.

    Appreciating the night view can have the same effect as a night drive, except without the danger of crashing into something.

    Having tea at a cafe - well, eating together usually lowers a lot of social barriers, and there's no need to pay yourself if you know what you're doing.

    Playing sports together... can get her nice and sweaty.

    Karaoke is just a bit of fun, and also lowers a lot of social barriers, like eating together. Also, it's a great time to get her liquored up if need be.

    Fine dining at a restaurant is good if you can avoid paying.

    It all makes sense. Most of you just aren't man enough to handle a woman (or woman enough to handle a man, or woman enough to handle a woman, or man enough to handle a man (delete as appropriate)).

    "Going for a drive can be very relaxing, especially at night, it's possible to drift into a state of trance just staring at the lights going past (not recommended if driving)."

    yea, at 3$+ a gallon, and lets say 30 miles to and back, and a good 30 miles of happy view driving...

    thats at least 10$ right there, and you did nothing. personally i hate driving, but also around here, the fuck sticks still in school decide its fun to drive on the wrong side of the road and swerve a the last minute.

    "Watching a movie doesn't necessarily mean in the cinema; it could include watching a film at home."

    relax at home implies a movie there, going to a movie implies you spend 50$ to see a crappy movie in a theater.

    "Appreciating the night view can have the same effect as a night drive, except without the danger of crashing into something."

    and as boring as it sounds.

    "Having tea at a cafe - well, eating together usually lowers a lot of social barriers, and there's no need to pay yourself if you know what you're doing."

    you are thinking of a real restaurant not a starbucks a cafe is basically like a starbucks, but more ambiance so you pay more for the shit there

    "Fine dining at a restaurant is good if you can avoid paying."

    ok you are a woman, or a really shitty guy, you will never get laid if you dont pick up the check.

    ...What Minakichan said.

    Geez dude, loosen up! are you seriously complaining about spending $10 on a date? or $5 for a coffee? Dude, I spend around 30-40 bucks when I'm hanging out with my friends (mind you we don't hang often), do you think that's also an outrageous amount?

    There's a good chunk of us women who will pay for their part or split the bill, you just gotta meet more of them. Personally, I'd hate to leave all the bills to the man, especially on the first date.

    Oh, boohoo. A whole $10? That's almost enough to buy a meal at McDonald's!

    "and as boring as it sounds."

    In your opinion.

    "you are thinking of a real restaurant not a starbucks a cafe is basically like a starbucks, but more ambiance so you pay more for the shit there"

    No, I'm thinking of a cafe. I know what a cafe is.

    If you can't enjoy simple things like that without whining and being negative about everything, no woman will want to hang out with you. Whining is so unattractive.

    @alidan I can't help but think of how stupid you are.

    Simple things like looking at the stars and having a nice chat often leave the best memories, as opposed to being pressured into sex or being forced to sit on a couch and look at how your partner plays video games. I personally wouldn't find this fun no matter how impressive his skills were.

    Not to mention your arguments against mr. Quack are invalid. One time you say it's too expensive to drive around with a girl just to spend some time alone with her, then you say that you HAVE to pay for a meal in a restaurant... isn't that expensive as well? Besides, if a woman agrees to pay, there's nothing wrong with it. You can pay the next time you go out or something, or you can just split the bill. A man is "a really shitty guy" only when he avoids paying EACH time he takes a girl out.

    What a shame that your only objective in dating is getting laid without making any effort. Oh well. Have fun being a couch potato and having no pleasant memories of your youth in the future.

    This list almost seems corny, maybe it's due to my lack of experience, but "Appreciate a night view together"? I'd be afraid it'd bore the girl to tears.

    Play sports together

    Found that pretty humorous, but that might actually be an effective way to break the ice for a first date. No lack of entertainment there, that's for sure. Then you both can chill and relax together after.
