Its the same move in the same old book of dating , once you invite someone out for a movie date, you might want to get cosy and see if it works.
It is the most easiest part of having to go for a date, because you don’t have to spend so much effort to go out for a movie, but lets face it. Ladies in this new era has more expectations, thanks to real men out there who never fails to surprise them with new plans for their first date.
I once went out on a date and recommended her my ‘die die must watch’ show, but then i saw her busy sending Whatsapp messages over the phone for the past 30 mins. To me, that moment felt that she wasn’t interested or enjoying the movie at all.
I was right when she told me the movie was okay. It ended there.
Yeah, I’ve had my own share of ‘bad movie dates’.
So then what could have gone wrong?
Lack of Interaction
You’re deeply taken in by the huge screen, powerful sound and make you feel like you are part of the movie, but your interaction with your date is little.
Interaction brings out the best part of being on a first date, it is also the few things that ladies would remember, how he talks, what he talks about.What you say is taken into consideration.
She likes Twilight, you don’t . You want to enjoy watching the movie. Save the trouble of having to sacrifice your first date by doing something you don’t like to watch. Your first date should be made memorable that it makes her want to go out with you even more.
Things happen. Your date is leaving the movie halfway because something urgent came up, you’re left with two choices, watch the movie alone, or miss your movie.
Don’t put yourself and your date at that spot.
First come First serve
Everyone you know could be watching the new movie that just came out. Only a few limited seats left, you don’t want to disappoint your date by having to change movie or pick a later timing.
You’re could have book the tickets online, but realise that the popcorn lines are long as well.
Lack of Creativity
First date is similar to you applying for a job. You have one chance to express yourself of what you can do, and what you can contribute, and this links up to Reason 1.
Make your first date an impact. Save the movies for the few dates to come ahead.
The Common Misconception about going for Movies
- Hugging and leaning means she’s into you.
- Movies is a fast and easy way to get to know her
- Movies are good for some alone time with her
- Awkward , you don’t need to talk a lot in movies
You saw the couple beside leaning against each other at the movie the other day, so you decided to try it too by slowly leaning on her. She realised what you’re about to do, and she shifted away because its uncomfortable.
There goes your awkward 1 1/2 hours movie, with your date. Respect your date, you shouldn’t be doing something that’s crossing the line. Going out on a date is a good time to focus on what you can provide for her.
Show that you can both enjoy a good time.
