I want to have a weekly post about places to go. This does not have to be a first date thing. If you have read any of my posts you would know that I typically like to meet people for coffee for a first meeting.
This first post about dating ideas I will start off with why I like to go for a coffee on a first meeting.
Fundamentally the rules of dating have changed. I have mentioned this before but today we are communicating with more people through applications like Tinder, Plenty of Fish, etc. Notice I said communicating not connecting. I say communicating because I do not believe, at least for most people, a true connection with someone until you get to know them and actually meet them.
To those that have been out there a while or have ever dated, how many times did you get to know someone over the phone, text, or chat then meet them and for the lack of a better description ‘the connection was just not there’.
This is why I like coffee. You can meet, have a conversation, if things get awkward you can have a stopping point, and its public so it feels safer.
There is another reason that is pretty important that I need to call out is cost. Lets do some simple math here. If every meeting was dinner, so dinner and a couple of drinks is $30-$100 depending on geographical location and the place of business.
I need to ask myself how many dates can I have in a month? I don’t know about you but I don’t need more than one hand if I have dinner every time. But Coffee is cheap. $10 and an hour conversation is much more economical. You can decide on the second date and what is in your budget.
I want this blog to encourage people to get out away from your devices and have real human connections with people. Coffee is a great way to start.
