Do you believe in love at first date? Probably not, because first dates are always cumbersome. We’ve always described first dates as “make it or break it” moments for two people because the first meeting is usually used as a way to find out if a possible relationship is in the works or if there’s attraction building up. However, a recent survey reveals that now married couples have all had basically the same kind of the first date.

Could There Be A First Date That Leads To Wedding Bells?

There possibly is a specific type of the first date that could lead to tying the knot. Instead of going out and doing a specific dating activity, like hiking or playing paintball, you’ll have better chances of getting married when your first date is less complicated.

Survey Says

1,100 married couples who met on online dating sites were given survey questions. The first survey question had to do with picking an activity that they did on their first dates. There was a list of 20 options. Surprisingly, most married couples answered going to dinner as their first date. Second in the running was going for a walk, and the third most popular option was meeting for drinks or coffee.

What Dating Lesson Can We Get From The Results?

It seems that the common factor that we can observe from the survey results is that first dates might pay off if they’re less complicated. We, all, have this particular first date idea where everything needs to be fun, romantic and perfect, but reality and science say that we need to dial down what we think first dates should be like. Who would have thought that going for a walk would be so good first date idea? Obviously, simplicity is the key.

Why Should You Stick To Simple First Dates?

So why stick to simple first dates? This is a good question. While taking a walk or having a simple meal or drink with someone might not be very romantic to you, but it’s actually the best way for you to get to know a person. When you’ve planned an elaborate first date, you might have a good time, but it could leave both of you not experiencing a connection that we all look for.

Do you think that you’re going to plan your first date with simplicity in mind from now on? Go for it. Try it and see if it works for you. Remember that the main focus is on getting to know the person. We have more dating tips for you on the blog and don’t forget to check out AsianDate if you want to meet pretty girls from Asia.
