Conversation is probably the most important part of a first date. Chatting over a couple of drinks will ensure the mood is relaxed and will help to dispel any inevitable first date nerves. Choose a gastropub with bags of atmosphere, so you don't feel compelled to fill every break in conversation yourself -- the last thing you want is to choose a silent place.
The other great thing about going for drinks is that the date is casually open ended -- you can easily make an excuse to keep it short if the spark just isn't there, or can go on for dinner somewhere else if you both don't want the date to end.

I think meeting for a drink or lunch is a good way to get to know someone at first without it being considered a date. Lunch to me is confusing because I would classify that as friends until further defined. It is helpful to know it is a date. An ideal date is where things are really taking off toward a potential relationship with a future, conversation is good and there is a connection. Anywhere...probably starts with dinner.

Something not to long but not to short.. mybe coffee..it, can be short if things don't click... like the guy that gave me way too much private information about stuff that not one no needs to know...or a woman or man that talks about previous relationships or his ex-wife. But truely if things are going good you can drinking more coffee or bottle water. One time I met a fellow and we talked and laughted for hours.

The firstdate is not only a first impression, its one of the most memorable dates. If you do something funr or witty like play laser tag, keroke or wear something weird like a clown nose. This helps break the ice. Plus you can bring to back or reintroduce it for a romantic twist on an annivesary orsomething. ;)

The ideal first date is when you know you both really like each other and want to make a special first date. Now days it seems people are not always available or seem insurance or uninterested in a relationship, mostly women because that's the only sex I like to invite out. So ideal first date would be a well worth investment of time and money!
However, because of the beginning and uninterested parties a simple coffee will do until the other person is willing to show you she/he is willing to get to know you. If the sign is not there that person is interested in you then I would say lunch and dinner are okey as long as that person doesn't mind going Dutch on that first and last date!!!!

A mini-adventure would be excellent, just like Peter is describing. It lets you get to know something more about the person, and it can bond you if you turn out to be interested in the person. Then dinner. Go for a walk/hike in a gorgeous park (if its warm out, walk along a beach), wall climbing (in a safe environment since i'm not a pro at it) or volunteering building someone's home, for example. Or out to dinner and then for a waltz (seriously, waltzing is awesome if a guy knows how to lead). Something active and then communicative in the same date.
