7 First Date Ideas That Aren't Awkward AF

First dates can be awkward AF, so here's a few fun activities that'll help you get through your first hangout:

  1. Playing mini golf. Friendly competition inspires flirtatious teasing and witty banter.
  2. Going to an amusement park. Talk between thrills.
  3. Visiting the zoo. Talk about life while you look at the wildlife.
  4. Catching a movie screening. No small talk necessary.
  5. Going ice skating. Link arms and giggle about sucking at ice skating.
  6. Going on a group dinner date. The more the merrier, especially if you don't know what to say.
  7. Watching a football game. Hoot, holler and cheer together!
