First Date Ideas for Fall

Football season is upon us. Leaves are changing colors. World of Warcraft’s Legion is in full swing. As Bob Dylan eloquently wrote (and sang), the times they are a changin’.

The best part of creating a profile on LFGdating is that you get to meet new people every day. Gamers that are just like you: intelligent, fun and awesome to be around. With the summer fading and autumn on the rise, we want to share some first date ideas with you. Once you reach out and meet someone meaningful, here are some first date ideas that will get you away from your computer and out having fun!

Botanical Garden

Most major cities and surrounding suburbs have at least one botanical garden basically free of charge. You don’t have to be a plantsman or garden expert to appreciate the different types of flowers and greenery a botanical garden has to offer. Some places even have small tours or classes you can arrange to sit in on. While botanical gardens typically don’t serve alcohol, this is a great pre or post lunch or dinner venue. And remember, not only is the scenery amazing, but it’s cost effective as well. Double bonus!


Brew and View

This is for those of you who want to up the ante on the traditional dinner and a movie kind of night. Brew and views typically offer more comfy and cozy seats or couches for your viewing pleasure. Couple this with your ability to enjoy an adult beverage or two, and you’re in pretty great shape. We recommend following two guidelines if you choose this date idea. One, limit yourself to two drinks. Maybe a third if your date wants to splurge and its a longer movie (insert titanic theme music…) Two, have a ride home planned out before the film begins.

Minor League Game

The beauty of attending a minor league game is everything is basically 1/10th the cost. Sure, you may not be court side in an NBA game, at the 50 yard line of an NFL game, or behind the plate of an MLB game, but you also won’t be crushing your budget to eat nachos and watch live action. Lots of smaller cities outside of metropolitan areas have some form of minor league baseball, hockey, football or basketball games. Plus, it’s autumn! The weather has a chance of being amazing if you choose a baseball game.

Arcade Bar

Games and a drink? Sign me up! Arcade games abound, and you should have no trouble hopping from game to game for at least an hour or two. Want to play the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game? Knock yourself out! Or how about The Simpsons? Terrorize Springfield with Bart’s skateboard. Maybe you’re a Burger Time expert. Whatever your milieu, enjoy it with a beer! (If you’re in Chicago, we recommend Emporium!)

Where you choose to meet up in person for the first time, the most important thing is to enjoy the time you spend together. Whether inside or outside this fall, make sure you learn as much about the other person as you can in the time you have. Games are fun, but it’s the people around us who truly make our lives better. When you find the person you’re looking for at LFGdating, make the most out of your time together!
