1. “On our second date he took me to the public library to hear an author speak. I had mentioned that I read one of her books on our first date, the fact that he was even listening surprised me, and it was so thoughtful of him to do that. He was probably one of the nicest guys I’ve ever dated. Figures I didn’t stay with the nice one.” —Leah, 25

2. “I think it has more to do with the guy, and less about the date. The best dates that I remember weren’t anything special, but the person I was with is what made it so memorable. I think the best date I’ve ever been on was at a restaurant, and not because it was extravagant, but because the guy who took me there was an incredible person.” —Michelle, 26

3. “I once went ice skating on a first date, and it was actually really nice. We were both far from professional skaters, so it loosened up the vibe a bit. It’s good to embarrass yourself on the first date, falling on your ass in front of them upon first meeting is a great ice breaker, no pun intended.” —Denise, 26

4. “My now husband took me to his parent’s beach house when we first started dating (his parent’s weren’t there). We spent the weekend together, and for the beginning phase of our relationship it was pure bliss. We constantly wanted to be around each other, so having the whole beach house, and the whole weekend with just us was perfect. He cooked me dinner one night, we carved each other’s names in the sand, we watched the sunset on the beach, it was nauseatingly romantic and cliche, but I loved every bit of it.” —Paulina, 29

5. “Honestly, a Mets game. I know that sounds far from romantic, but I’m the least romantic person you will ever meet. I don’t want to be wined and dined, I want to see you drink a beer, eat a hotdog, and scream profanities when the other team scores, and I want to do the same exact thing right next to you.” —Marissa, 24

6. “I once dated a guy who flew me to Vegas for the weekend…on his private jet. He was the richest guy I’ve ever been with, and the oldest. My friends thought I was with him for the money, but I really did like him. Anyway, that weekend was the most fun I’ve had since my Dad took me to an N’sync concert when I was 11. He showered me with attention, and I couldn’t get enough of it.” —Cassie, 24

7. “I studied abroad in Italy, and met this GORGEOUS Italian local boy at a bar one night. He got my number (to my janky international flip phone) and invited me over his place to cook me lunch one day. My friends thought he was a murderer waiting to chop me to pieces and throw me in the ocean, but he was SO CUTE, and I was abroad, I wanted to live life adventurously. When I went to his place he made me pasta (of course) and played the guitar for me. My heart melted, and if that wasn’t enough he was trying to teach me Italian the entire time. When he spoke Italian I was basically hypnotized. I felt like I was in a movie. It was too perfect.” —Alex, 23

8. “He took me to a cooking class, which at first I thought was him trying to say I sucked at cooking, but it turned out to be so much fun! We got to mess around in the kitchen and drink wine the entire time. It was super relaxing, plus we got to eat what we made at the end of it. I also ended up learning a lot, which I think his stomach is now very happy about.” —Cecilia, 26

9. “I’m like perpetually single so I’ve been on tons of dates, none of which have lead to a lasting relationship, but I think the best one so far was when a guy asked if he could kiss me at the end of it. I thought that was adorable. Usually they just kind of go in for the kill, and I’m totally caught off guard. When he asked if he could kiss me it was so polite and in a way, sensitive. Needless to say, I let him, and it was a great kiss.” —Brynn, 24

10. “It was our anniversary, and instead of the usual chocolates or flowers, he painted a photo of us from when we first started dating (he’s an artist), it was framed and everything, and it was beautiful. It’s so much more meaningful than a stupid piece of jewelry. I love him for that.” —Jaqueline, 26

11. “It was in the summer and there was one of those outdoor movie showings of Despicable Me, super corny, but I’m a sucker for a good animated movie. He brought a big blanket, a bottle of wine, and Reese’s Pieces (my favorite candy), and when the movie was over we stayed after everyone else left. We were just talking, and laughing and then one thing lead to another, and…It was great. I love having sex in public, and on a blanket under the stars on a summer night was just perfection.” —Katherine, 24

12. “My friend and her boyfriend set me up with one of his friends from work. It was a blind date on my part, or partially blind because I looked him up on Facebook beforehand. All four of us were at a local restaurant in town, and me and him were totally hitting it off. We could both tell that we only wanted to be with each other. He got my number in the middle of dinner, which I thought was pretty strange, and he texted me while we were still at the table. I read it and it said ‘Want to lose them?’ I did, so I just went along with it. He told them he had to step outside to take a call, and I excused myself to use the restroom. We both snuck out of there and left them with the check. It was so mean, but at the time we found it hilarious. We walked around the city and had a great night just us. Our friends were pissed, but they eventually got over it. I’m still dating him today, he’s awesome.” —Angie, 25 TC mark
