Creative, Memorable First Date Ideas

Whip out a pen and make a quick list of the last five first dates you’ve been on. Where were those dates? What did you do together? How memorable and meaningful were these past five first dates?The common denominator for each of your first dates? It’s YOU, Baby! Let’s have some fun sprucing up your first date regimen. Here’s what some of our more creative Personal Matchmaking Clients have been doing on their first dates with us at

1) Samantha really likes to meet up over lunch or a drink at a someplace lovely, but…Kevin’s suggestion was Starbucks. Not wanting to be fussy, princess-like or controlling, but also wanting to add in her personal touch, Samantha didn’t request a change of venue, rather she made the date special by bringing a sweet little tablecloth, silverware and her homemade blueberry muffins. She was all set up at Starbucks when he arrived, reading the paper and she greeted him with a big smile and a warm hug.  The look on his face when he saw that she had brought a homey, romantic touch to his neighborhood coffee spot?  Surprise and delight.

2) Brent is a committed dog lover and is thoroughly unwilling to partner with a woman who isn’t a fan of the canines. He was particurly interested in meeting Ana, as our personal matchmaking coordinator shared with him that she has a new Dalmatian puppy.  The two of them met up at her favorite dog park, on a bench in the shade of Magnolia tree. He’d stopped off at to pick up chicken sandwiches, chips and a couple of Snapples – and the two of them bonded over doggie kisses and California sunshine.

3) Becky is ten pounds down, working on losing another ten, and her biggest habit change? She no longer meets anyone over food — rather, she meets over some fun kind of exercise. She’s doing lots of dating at the moment, the most memorable for her of late being — roller blading with Jon in Venice Beach and a meet-up with Scott at a Sierra Club Singles hike
