You aren’t relegated to the movie theater at the local mall, and if you are going to see a movie you can go to places like Nitehawk and eat artisanal cheese while watching it.
Usually the best first dates start with a drink, maybe at a bar in the East Village, where you talk for hours and determine that you both share a love of dim sum and Chinese beer. Then, during the meal, you both discover that you both have stiff shoulders, so it’s off to a massage place on the Lower East Side for cheap massages.
There are always events happening so take some time to plan your visit.
Perhaps just a relaxing stroll around the park will be suitable, in a city like New York it’s nice to take time out without planning anything extravagant.
Or because you really want that summer share in the Hamptons. Maybe you’re a traditionalist and you still believe you can meet someone in Central Park... This can be why most New Yorkers don’t want to commit, because they know that there will always be someone else, theoretically better, right around the corner.
Or someone to call "babe" every Sunday morning at brunch at The Smith. Like, literally, around the corner you can see right now.
That guy who asks if your back is feeling okay after you have sex on the roof is not necessarily a gentleman, despite how sweet you think that gesture is.
If they offer to meet you at a spot in your neighborhood, even better! (This never happened.) Thinning the herd can also mean dumping the rugby-playing med student because he was super available and attentive.
You don’t want to blow it immediately after your first by seeming too eager.
But you don’t want to let too much time pass, either. There’s too much possibility for something better right around the corner.
