    • Just recently got to know a girl online.. want to take her out for dinner this coming sunday.. was agonising over where to bring her..

      Problem is I have never been on a date before.... and I am an uncle liao.. I know i am quite a loser... Also havent thought what to plan to say during dinner or after dinner activities..

      Anyway just posted here looking for some suggestion on an ideal dinner venue location for chit chat plus any tips for after dinner activities... I am thinking I wont treat it like a date but more getting to know more dinner.. just that its just between a guy and a girl..

      Any gurus got advice for me??

    • well, that depends on what you have in mind. after dinner, a stroll along the beach or a cuppa at the beach would be nice too.

      Just dinner to get to know more about the person... its gonna be like a blind date kinda thing as I only met her online.. However, i dont plan to see it like a date or anything.. more like a meetup to make new friends...

      Budget wise i was thinking maybe 20-40 per person.. Is that too much or too little i really dont know :/

    • i think you have to approach this dinner date in a different direction......and not look from the cost perspective.

      Now you know her thru internet.....i am sure you chat before....just remember what you chat about. read her profile and list down what she Likes and don't likes.

      From there come up with activities and venue. What is important is that both of you enjoy rather than worry about the price .....

      After all she too trust herself to another stranger like you.....look from her perspective....be a Gentlmen.

      That is a place not to bring a potential girlfriend on a 1st date. Sends the wrong signal.

       

      That however is a place to bring a 1 9 stand. Strike fast ...strike hard.... run faster.

       

      Kind Regards

      Young? .... more like a place for aunties. So boring ... I only go there to makan because its quiet and serene.

       

      One of the pubs have free pool with live band so that's pretty decent as well.

       

      Futhermore so out of the way even with car.

       

      If I want to bring a potential girlfriend to a place makan just bring centrepoint at orchard one of those sushi trains then after still can see/see and window shop at shopping centre or find stuff to do since you at Orchard... can go watch movie or whatever..

       

      Dempsey :P Go there catch mosquito

       

      Kind Regards

    • Just a casual dinner follow by coffee at cafe.

       

      Millenia Walk, Marina Square, Suntec City.

       

      But first, check with her, what she likes to eat. Then suggest a place or two.

      Just be yourself....

      As for conversation, from hobbies to latest movies etc

      Then see if can date her out for a movie etc

       

      Good luck!!! wink.png

      x2

      Not ideal for a movie on the 1st date because there will be no communication for a period of time.

      Dinner & coffee is best

      TS dun need to prepare for wedding spread or fine dining... Just a simple get-to-know-each-other dinner... preferably somewhere quiet (no Food Court)...

      After dinner activities could be sitting down for coffee, or strolling ard suntec, marina square... Movie could be something if you both had interest in...

      And for conversation topic... Since u both talk to each other online, I'm sure u both will be able to talk in person too... It's the same... Unless u refer "Hi, how are u. Fine. Thank you" as online conversation >___> Just remember to find common point of interest between u both... I'm sure there'll be something...

    • I recommend you a nice western food cafe, can meet your budget, its called Prime Cut, and its along Simon road, just a short walk from kovan MRT.

      Its just got on my ban list 2 weeks ago because of service. But thats my problem. Maybe you have better luck.

    • Don't go expensive restaurant on first date. Just go to those usual ones like Fish & Co., Botejyu, Swenson and such. After that head down to some cafe for a nice cup of coffee. Make it as much as a get to know you session. But don't keep asking questions. It's good to have some intellectual conversation. =) 

      Talking about childhood can be a good topic. =)

      Yes.. I ve been there to Prime Cut... Its economical too... You can know each other better... Restaurants allow you to conversate more! I suggest you not to go to Movie on your 1st meeting...u wont get good atmosphere to talk
