For your initial "first date" with a lady , CM gentlemen must----

Be well attired -- must escort the lady to a quality restaurant with enjoyable dining selections , a quite atmosphere, and a charming and warm ambience . ( a candle-lite place is best )--- must display good table-manners-- must engage the lady with enjoyable and interesting conversations during dinner , always avoiding intrusive questions.

What else must gentlemen do in this particular circumstance just described ?

Pick up the check. The restaurant doesn't have to be high brow either. Signs of cheapness on a first date is a total turn-off.

I was remiss Julie in not mentioning this , but I presumed that the "gentleman pays" was a well-established pre-condition..

There may be some generational issues but I can say that I never had a first date like that and I think most women I took on a first date would have been uncomfortable with something that formal or intimate. Especially if you had initially met online.

You "must" get dressed up and go to a fancy restaurant on a first date? What if we want to go kayaking instead, or volunteer together at the food bank, or go to a museum? Not every woman wants to be wined and dined all the time.

Might be----

#1 Dress comfortably for the flight/s
#2 We can text to meet at baggage claim/car rental.
#4 Which restaurant/ what time would you like to meet for a bite to eat, sir?

So, not only is it generational...it depends on distance and expense involved scratchchin

After all the flights, candlelight ...might NOT be happening.... wave
