The Type of Site that Tinder is
Tinder is both a dating and a hookup site.
It is an online dating app that allows guys to find girls more easily than a face to face interaction.
However, sooner or later, matches must meet up in person!
Before a guy gets the chance to meet a girl, they must have a good Tinder bio and conversations.
This is very crucial toward helping a guy have a successful first-time Tinder date.
Also here are some examples that you might need What and When to Text After a First Date?
How to Meet a Tinder Date
Yeah, there really is a way or ways to meet up for the first time.
It is not always so obvious.
There are several ways to have your first Tinder Date:
- Virtually, through video chat.
- A public date, that is outside at a restaurant or hotel in public.
- At one of your houses. Either yours or hers.
These are the three major ways to meet a Tinder date.
Naturally, you want to be safe and therefore, option three is only applicable where there is trust.
Trust is built over time.
The best first-time date even from Tinder is safely done.
So the best option is to meet somewhere public. This could be a restaurant or a park.
What to Do on a Tinder Date
Here are 10 of the Best First Tinder Date Ideas that you will be happy to have read:
1. Suggest a board game
Well, many girls are not smart right? Wrong. Women are very smart and they would just love it if you played a board game with them
This could be Chess, Scrabble, Checkers, or even Mahjong.
Have you heard that intelligence is sexy?
Well, it is.
You can take my word for it.
When women are making Tinder Swipes, they really look for intelligence.
It is very attractive. So, play a board game guys!
2. Go to an event in the neighborhood
This could be a festival or a concert.
For those of you who are extroverts, this should be very easy for you.
This is the time to gather all that information on where the best of bands are playing in town.
It is also the best of times to unleash your party side without feeling so guilty and irresponsible.
If you are an introvert, seek out an art event. Something quiet and without noise.
You could get a book signing event for an awesome novel whose writer is around. Intelligence is sexy, remember?
Read your Tinder date and find out what she likes.
You can get lots of her information by making a Tinder Profile Search on her other social accounts.
3. Instead of the usual heavy meal, try pizza and coke
It is so cliché to always have a heavy meal while dating.
Guys usually buy girls heavy lunches plus drinks and they end up paying for the bills.
Many guys complain that the girls hardly help in paying for bills on a first date.
All the more reason why you should try spending as little as possible with her.
Try having a simple pizza and coke and this could be sometime in the late afternoon.
Depending on your time schedules, do not even meet at lunch hours, meet at 4.30 p.m.
Get a simple pizza and a drink that are not so tasking on you.
This not only saves you cash but is something different and not so ordinary and boring.
It also makes you both feel comfortable as you do not need to worry about eating mannerisms.
How hard is it to eat pizza? You just eat it.
Having gourmet meals is however hard for those not used to rich people's food.
4. Have something light outside rather than indoors
This could be a nice beverage in the park.
It could be one of those drive-by light meals, like a burger.
The advantage of this is that it helps you easily build a conversation.
You do not have to eat every time you meet a girl.
You might as well ask her to help you shop for something for your house, like a TV.
It would be a nice opportunity to window shop on what you both want.
This madly helps build conversation!
The outside helps you to be more creative than being cooked up in a restaurant.
There are many sweet jokes that you can safely crack in your conversations with her.
Using some Funny Tinder Bios would help you boost creativity in your efforts to maintain a conversation.
Remember though, do not overdo it, it might turn her off.
5. If you can’t meet, do a video call
Meeting a date does not always mean face-to-face.
The meeting date may be from the comfort of your bedroom.
How do you do that?
You simply video chat.
Video calling is more effective than a mere phone call since it allows you to see each other.
It has these advantages:
- It helps you flirt, sexually.
- It helps you feel at ease.
- It makes you anticipate what meeting in person would be like.
- The anticipation makes it mysterious and romantically interesting.
Video calling is a great way to make a Tinder first date.
Through the Tinder Match Disappeared, you can learn what to avoid so as not to turn her off.
Wear something romantic as Tinder Statistics show that women like bright colors on a man.
Wear a red or pink shirt in your video call meeting.
6. Go somewhere for dessert
This is a good way to pass time if you run out of ideas on what is next after lunch.
Think, what if we went to another place for dessert?
This will make you walk a bit or drive a bit and therefore kill that monotony of being in one place.
Don’t make her walk too far, it makes girls mad.
However, try moving to a different location for dessert.
Another advantage of going elsewhere for dessert is that you can exchange gifts there.
Most women love surprises.
Don’t overdo it by giving her something expensive but, just small and worth it.
A good example is a bracelet or a necklace. Small, but means a lot coming from you.
7. Hey, imagine going to the zoo
Some girls love nature and they will love the zoo or national park.
I know Lisa Simpsons does.
Nature is her best friend and hitting on her is easy using nature.
You should try take a girl to the zoo, national park or the animal orphanage.
I already touched on window shopping.
So, other than a zoo, try go to a pet store and window shop for a pet that you would want to adopt in future.
This is actually sweet and will make a pet lover drool over you.
Women love cute cats and small dogs. Go for a poodle rather than a German Shepherd.
I repeat, window shopping is a nice way to pass time with a woman, especially if she is not tired.
Try to buy some of the things in future though. Don’t just make promises.
The zoo is not an everyday place and therefore creates uniqueness.
It is a wonderful place to really have dreamy conversations with each other and build memories.
If allowed, take some photos.
8. Go bowling or to an arcade somewhere
On the very first point, I talked of, playing board games.
Playing is a great way to bond and come closer.
If the board games do not appeal to her, try going for bowling or tennis.
Any game that you can play together and compete safely, is a great game!”
Go to a mall or an arcade or just a joint where you can play something together.
Anything that bonds you together is okay.
9. Try to show some of your future projects
This could be a fashion project you are working on.
It could be a comic book that you are making.
Women love men with a future so, guys, show her a bit of what you are doing.
You don’t have to reveal all the details of your sensitive project.
Share just a little bit of what is okay to tell someone.
I meet several women who are always telling me of a business idea that they have.
They do not go so deep into the details but they at least say something that makes them look focused in life.
Remember, don’t share deep details. It is your private plan. Just generalize.
10. Play a light truth or dare
It could be a safe version of the game.
“I am holding a flower in my hand, truth or dare?”
When she says dare, come up with a box of chocolates and give them to her.
She will so drool over you.
It is safe and romantic. It is also fun and very simple.
You do not have to make things so complicated.
Simple surprises that lead to romantic gestures are good.
It could also be a great way to decide who will pay for the fare back home.
“I have enough money in my wallet to pay for our fare back home”
When you show the wallet, it does not have enough cash.
Hopefully, she is the kind of girl that can participate in handling bills and she will pay for the fare.
Remember that it is just a game. If she does not have enough, help her out.
Be careful of the Tinder Catfish who never helps pay for bills. Both of you should be responsive to any use of cash on your date.
Otherwise, have some fun together.
The Person to Plan for the First Tinder Date
Should the guy or the girl take the first step in this?
Hmm, it is really debatable.
Traditionally, the guy should decide when and where to meet the girl.
Personally, I think that any of you can decide.
It depends on who is more conversant with the streets and eateries or parks.
Alternatively, if you trust each other that much, you could meet in any of your houses.
Guys please, don’t rape nor hurt the girls. Trust is very hard to find and you must respect that.
How Long to Date while on a Tinder Date
The length of time that you could be on a Tinder Date depends on:
- Where you are meeting. Online by video chat or in person.
- At a park outside or at a restaurant.
- At your house or at her house.
If at all you are meeting online, you may have to consider having enough on internet connection.
If at all it is at a restaurant, you are indoors and surrounded by food and drink. That is okay.
If at all at yours or her house, you could sleep over. It all depends on how well you get along.
Since it is not easy for a girl who is not after a hookup to meet you in your house, try a restaurant.
What to Not do on a Tinder Date
I know. You are asking yourself whether it is okay to kiss on the first Tinder date.
Yes, it is okay. If opportunity presents itself, then that is okay.
However, don’t demand for it. Be easy with her.
You may know what your Tinder Date is generally about by reading their bios.
Taking a Tinder Screenshot may help you make reference on their bios or profiles.
It will help you remind yourself what sort of person you are on a date with.
Do not do these things on a Tinder first date:
1. Pressure someone
Never ever push someone so far that they cannot breathe.
This could actually be a reason why some of you have had a Tinder Match Disappeared story.
You may be pushing the girls too far and they hate it.
Likewise, girls should not push guys too far.
2. Spending too much time on it
Your time is precious.
It is not fair for a girl to keep you waiting for 4 hours before she finally shows up.
So, do not spend too much time on the first date.
It is mostly about knowing each other and seeing whether you still like each other.
Spend just one to three hours.
If you are in each other’s houses, you will most probably make out but, remember to be gentle.
That may mean that you will spend more time with her.
3. Spending too much money on it
Do not be catfished.
Most girls are catfishers. A handful of men are.
You must always watch out for the Tinder Catfish and know how to protect yourself.
Never spend too much money on a first-time Tinder date.
It is a red flag that the girl is catfishing you or wants to do that to you.
Also, it is best if she can help out with the bill, maybe you buy the food and she buys the sodas.
4. Run out of things to say or do
You must think fast so that you do not lose her. There's always that you can come up with ideas to say something creative on Tinder.
You must keep a girl occupied with you.
he should be totally interested in what you have to say or do.
Try not to play with your phone or look away so much.
Stay with her and keep her with you.
Do that trick that I talked of, number 6-getting dessert elsewhere.
5. Overdo things such as drinking or being bored
Yes, people meet for the first time and they get bored of each other.
Try to make it through the date.
Do not be rude even if you are bored and she never turned out to be what you had expected.
At times, people bore each other and fall in love later.
That is why you should not be rude.
It is not that hard to have a successful Tinder first date.
All you have to do is get out of that shyness and believe that all will be well.
This article has given you a lot on what you can do to make it all work.
I actually believe in all of these and that is why I wrote them for you.
Trust me, they work.
Women are sometimes easy to please so, do not think so hard.
Take it easy.
Hey, good luck out there.
