These activities may be divided into different categories: Of course, if one of the two people have a favorite place, that would probably be a good place to go on a date since it will be endorsed enthusiastically by that person—and enthusiasm is always appealing.
Of course, what strikes one person as interesting may not seem so to someone else.I think it is reasonable to try to determine what is interesting to the other person; but it is not reasonable to submerge one’s own interests entirely.It then becomes important to that person that he or she does what can be done to make a good impression on that other person.He--or she--wants to be liked, and, possibly, loved.A man and woman meet, talk for an hour or so, and then, usually, never see each other again.
