Going out for a meal on a first date can be a very awkward moment in life. For a start you are eating for the first time in front of someone you are attracted to and at the same time, you are still getting to know that person. The worst thing to do is be even more uncomfortable by going out for a meal to somewhere you may not even like the food. This is one thing that needs to be sorted out when planning the date. You must both establish and place that you both enjoy the food, rather than go somewhere just to impress your date. At the end of the day, food that you both like is a necessity if you want to have something in common.
