Dream Date? hmmm... I've never gone a date with someone prior to a relationship, maybe because I find that as courtship. I don't like the traditional-put-your-best-foot-forward kind of thing. I go for guys who can be straight forward and just "courts" when you are IN the relationship.
I'm a girl-next-door or your average one-of the-boys type but still a girl at heart. For the first date... Well, a meet-up at the mall for a start. We can catch a movie, preferably comedy. A big NO for horror/suspense/thriller and Drama/Love Story. If not, it would be nice to chill time at the arcade :)
We could then spend time at a cozy place for some sweets and drinks! A coffee house will suffice! It would be a great way to know about the person -- the basics but not his full biography :)
For a date with MY Guy, I would want to go on a road trip or a travel with him. It's as simple as that :D
WHERE you were on a date is just a minor consideration, its WHO you were with that matters :)
