Seven Great Ideas For a First Date

First dates can be nerve racking, exciting, and intimidating all at the same time. We all want to make a good first impression. On a first date you want time and space to be able to communicate and get to know each other enough to decide if you want to see each other again.

As well as a lot of space and time to communicate to get to know each other better. Museums are typically quiet and intimate, perfect for the occasion.
