Need Ideas For A Date

Feel free to roll your eyes.

Anyways, long story short, met a girl, we really clicked, more so than any other girl worth remembering in my mind, and she told me many times she would love to see me again. We already had a (too long IMO) lunch date, and we are supposed to meet again this weekend. However, I'm having a major hard time picking something fun to do. I want to include lunch/dinner somewhere in the day, but before that I want to dedicate some time to doing something fun together and create more opportunities for bonding/getting her hooked on me/crushing more on me/whatever you want to call it.

I'm currently living just outside of IAD, and she lives near DCA (Alexandria to be exact).

What I would really like to do is take her go-kart racing, as it has worked great with other girls. Not talking about the stupid 10mph kid ones, but the more serious 50mph racing karts. Problem is, the only decent place is kind of a drive from my place, and even more so for her. Also, it's really expensive, $20 for an 8 minute race, and to make it worthwhile you'd really need two races per person, so that's $80 right there, and I'm very broke at the moment.

Then I thought about stuff like mini-golf, bowling, paddle boating in the potomac, laser tag etc etc. But that all sounds extremely cliche and/or childish and unoriginal. Trying to stand out on her mind, ya know...

A no brainer being a pilot and very successful one I've used before is doing a $100 dinner flight, but as I said, I'm pretty much broke.

She mentioned she likes to see museums, and she hasn't been to the Udvar Hazy air and space museum yet, but I dunno if I really want to show her my extremely geeky side, and again, it's kind of far away for her. ( we try to do stuff mid way).

The last alternative which could be dangerously lame, is just dinner and then going to a bar afterwards, but it would have to be out by her as I don't know where the good bars are at, and it would look wimpy on my behalf to have her pick where and what to do.

Not sure how I'd describe her, she's somewhat of a tomboy with a girly side to her. Can curse like a sailor yet knows when to stay classy. She's very different than any other girl I've met, and we have a lot in common and think almost frighteningly the same.

So, any suggestions?

And yes yes, I'm stocking up on snow globes.

OK, you mentioned being tapped out a few times ($$) and she likes museums but you dont want her ull up into your geek side yet.

This seems like a no brainer for me.
Guy, with about a dozen or so of museums in the National Mall, find one that neither you or her have been to yet and hit it.

Followed by picnic(wx allowing)/bar/ dinner, bottle of wine and fruit and cheese. Or if modify that according to her tomboyish personality.

Well I was thinking that too but I figure a museum, any museum really only involves walking around and that's it. I'm having a hard time finding something that would be really engaging for both of us. While I know for sure she's crushing pretty decently, I also get the feeling she's the type that gets bored quick.

FWIW, I wouldn't hide the real you. If you can find a way to make a museum trip engaging (usually, this means interesting and funny), then take her there. Share your knowledge and show off a little bit. But at the same time, when you have dinner, play the 20 questions game with her. That is, ask her 20 questions (or roughly that many. don't be counting on your fingers under the table). If she's nice, she will ask about you, so just brush that off and say "we will get to that, but I want to learn about you first..." Pertinent, relevant questions to keep the conversation going will earn you so many brownie points, you won't know what to do with them. She will feel like you are genuinely interested (which, it sounds like you are), and will definitely be impressed.

Be cool, confident, and collected. You'll nail it.


I hope this works out for you. If it doesn't though, careful about posting that on here. We all remember FLAIRPORT. I mean, I wouldn't mind a second version of that thread, but it'd definitely be at your expense.

That's not a bad idea. Maybe not the air museum, but one she might be more into. Doing things that she really likes shows that you:

A. find her interesting and think that she's more than just another good hook-up
B. care enough to put her interests ahead of yours.

But lets face it, this is enough in itself:

It may be cheesy but why not go to the National Zoo (if the weather is decent, though being April that can be hit or miss in DC). Plus there are plenty of nice places in Cleveland and Woodley Park to grab a bite to eat afterward.

You could go ice skating at the ice rink at Ballston... again plenty of places nearby to grab food/drink plus the movie theater there is decent.

The Potomac Nationals (Minor League Baseball) are playing this weekend down in Woodbridge. Probably a bit of a schlep to get there for both of you, but it could be a good cheap outing.

Dinner and bar hopping, could either do this in Alexandria or in Georgetown. I don't think there is any shame in letting her decide which bars to hit up in Alexandria... unless they all suck.


I'd say Udvar-Hazy is probably off the books for a while. Not really a date material type place. But when the weather gets a little nicer out a picnic lunch at Gravelly Point is good. The planes flying just overhead are an added bonus b/c on a nice day its a pretty good place to be. Just bring a blanket so you don't have to sit on goose shit.

I couldn't have put it better if I tried.

My first "date" with my now-wife actually involved her taking me out to lunch at Friendly's. We were both a college -- well, I was at college: summer school at the time back in 2003. I felt kinda bad that she popped for our $20 lunch. Oh, and that was kinda before we were officially boyfriend/girlfriend. That happened about 2 months later.  

My idea for an inexpensive date would be to take her out to a nice dinner. I'm sure there has to be some sidewalk cafe in DC. Maybe afterwards, weather permitting, you two could walk around the Mall and watch the sun go down. As you hang out around the Mall, you can kinda talk about different things -- find out about any likes/dislikes. Have you been to the Washington Monument? Even if you have, it would be some place to go together... I've been to Mount Washington overlooking Downtown Pittsburgh more times than I could count, but I remember taking my wife there for the first time. It was magical...

OK, but you ARE a geek. And let's face it: you can't hide it. So either you just come right out with: "So you know, I'm a total geek." and take her to A&S museum or you try to pretend you're something you aren't. Plan B rarely works out well. So I actually think that's a very good option.

Get some light lunch, go to the museum, wander around, take the opportunity to hold hands, brush shoulders, blah-blah-blah. Compliment her shoes. Remember to compliment the shoes. I don't care if she's a tomboy, girls like that. It also means: "I've looked at something other than your boobs today."

Then have a nice, simple dinner somewhere. Then go for a walk along the river or someplace pretty. That way you can find a secluded place for a bit of making out.

And then... well... remember to fasten your snowglobe.

Also, I'm trying to come up with two options. I won't tell her what we'd be doing till I pick her up (or we meet) to create some suspense. Once I meet I'd tell her what I got planned. OR I could be even more sneaky about it and just ask her as we drive/walk/take the metro, if we should go left or right, and just have her know once we get there. That has worked for me before too.

At any rate I'm leaning towards ice skating, though I think it's very cliche, and her being tomboy-ish makes me more skeptical. But girls will always be girls I guess. Preferably somewhere around the national mall and near a metro station, but the only one I can find there is closed. So I was thinking either the capitals iceplex or the pentagon row outdoor one.

Now that idea I really like. And I agree with Doc that hiding your geeky side is not really going to win anything so you may as well be open about it and show off your knowledge at the Air & Space sooner rather than later, at least it shows you have interests and knowledge on something many people don't. If you say she is a military geek then she would understand perfectly, and sets her up to be able to take you out to learn some things about that another time, if she is having the same deliberations about unleashing the geekyness.

How about you simply get out of town and got for a walk in the countryside with a picknick? If you want to make it more interesting, bring a camera and take turns being model and photographer.

Someone recommended paddle boating on the Potomac. If the weather is good, that's the perfect thing to do. And it's only $12 for a 1-hour boat ride. I was actually supposed to do one today but the weather went to trash.

Afterwards you can jump over to Adams Morgan, Arlington or Alexandria for cheap eats.

Depending on what you're in for, there's a really neat restaurant called Bus Boys and Poets. It's in the U street corridor, and I think there's a second on I (eye) street somewhere (near gallery place)

Another really good place for a meal is Vapiano's - i'm a big fan...neat atmosphere as well..There's on in Ballston, or out near Dulles at the town center, as well as a couple downtown.

LISTEN TO THIS ADVICE!!!

Also, don't worry about looking geeky if you go to the Udvar Hazy museum. Most women like men that are passionate about something besides beer and sports. Showing your passion for aviation shouldn't turn her off unless you spend the whole time talking about nothing but airplanes. It's fine to occasionally point out something unique and interesting about an aircraft or a display, but most of what you do is ask her about herself while you casually make your way through the museum. If she's into you she will find reasons to ask you questions about aviation and what she's seeing in the museum, intentionally giving you a chance to show off.

70 TSS : Okay Fly2HMO, I gather from your post in another thread that the date itself went well but things fell apart afterwards. Let's hear what happened.
