I think it depends on how long you have known each other/been dating and the time of year/weather. After all, a first date in the summer is totally different than a 20th date in the winter. Earlier dates need to be relaxed with some kind of activity...bowling, ball game, putt-putt, museums. ice-skating...anything that allows you to learn a little more about each other without the high pressure of having a metnal list of questions to ask the other person in order to keep the conversation going. Activitiy dates lend themselves to conversation about the activity and the chance to laugh at yourself, depending on the ativity. Later in the relationship as the romance between you builds, the dates can be a little more romantic. Sorry, I am a hopeless romantic! )
All that being said, one of my favorite dates from the past is when I get the chance to cook with a man, especially when he does the cooking! There is something about a man in the kitchen.
For me, it depends on the time of year.
Winter: ice skating under the stars, followed by a casual dinner in a rustic country restaurant.
Summer: a hike or easy stroll in the hills, or maybe a baseball game ... followed by dinner nearby.
Tom, sounds great! When are we going? LOL!
Danny Boy, if you know of a reasonably priced restaurant within close distance of the Eiffel Tower, I will buy you dinner there as a first date. Seriously, one of the few things I hate about Paris is that there really isn't anywhere to eat near the Champs de Mars. (Washington DC's Mall is like that. Not even a hot dog stand in winter.)
