The first date is an important step on your journey to hooking up with a Cougar. You could make a case for it being the most important. All you are really accomplishing with your profile and online conversations is getting your foot in the door with a woman. Sure, that’s also an important step, but charming a woman online won’t matter at all if you can’t charm her offline.
Before I give you a list of places to go, we must first discuss what types of places are good first date ideas. The places you take her to will show her what type of person you are. Before selecting a place, remember what type of person you portrayed yourself to be online. If you were the church going type online, it’s probably not best to take her to a Strip Club. You get the point. Regardless of the place/activity you select, it should show her that you are…
The best way to impress her: take her to a fancy lounge
Hole-in-the-wall bars are for rednecks and alcoholics. Or, at least that’s how they’re perceived. Don’t take that offensively if you’re all about those types of bars. I am too. But Cougars are looking for a fun man that’s a little more “grown up” than dudes that hang out at hole-in-the-wall bars. Piano bars are great ideas. They’re classy, different, and she will fit in if she puts on a fancy dress (she probably will). Another type of bar to take her to is a Martini Bar. Cougars LOVE martini’s. I don’t think I’ve met a Cougar that didn’t. Plus, Martini Bar’s generally attract a more upscale clientele.
If she’s not a drinker, do something adventurous
Do you like rock climbing, mountain hiking, or gambling? These types of date activities will impress her. There is a catch to this. If you’re expecting to get laid on the first date, it’s unlikely to happen after a night of tiresome activities. When I’m expecting to get laid that night, I take a woman to a quiet lounge and for a drink or two and then move the date to my place. But if I’m cool with waiting a couple of dates to have sex, I’ll try to impress her with some adventurous activities. Gambling is entertaining and she’ll probably enjoy it. Just make sure you realize you’re going to have to pay for her play. Although some women claim they don’t care if a man pays for a date, that’s a lie.
