Every girl wants that “dream come true” first date that she’ll never forget with the guy who will hopefully be her last first date. But creativity seems to have taken a backseat when it comes to this subject. Dinner and a movie? No thanks! It’s time to throw that old cliche away and show your potential girl that you put some thought into the first impression. No ideas? No problem! Guys don’t have to be creative geniuses to sweep a girl off her feet, though. All they have to do is listen. Country music provides the broom! Here’s five first date ideas I picked up just by listening to the radio.
1. Darius Rucker “Alright”
“Maybe later on we’ll walk down to the river
Lay on a blanket and stare up at the moon
It may not be no French Riviera
But it’s all the same to me as long as I’m with you”
The purpose behind a first date is to get to know someone. There’s no better way to accomplish this than to isolate yourselves from crowds and loud noises. Dinner at a restaurant with numerous other people around and a movie afterwards doesn’t give you ample opportunity to talk to your date. The romantic atmosphere and the opportunity to wrap your arms around her if she gets cold is sure to get you a second date!
2. Jason Aldean “Big Green Tractor”
“We can take another ride on my big green tractor
We can go slow, or make it go faster
Down through the woods, and out to the pasture
Long as I’m with you, it really don’t matter
Climb up in my lap, and drive if you want to
Girl you know you got me to hold on to
We can go to town, but baby if you’d rather
I’ll take you for a ride on my big green tractor”
This may top the list of unusual first dates, but who said unusual is a bad thing? Taking her for a ride through the country and cruising at a low speed is probably not what she expected going into the date, but keeping a girl on her toes is definitely a good thing! Plus, she’ll love how safe you make her feel as she holds on to you during the ride.
3. Keith Urban “Kiss A Girl”
“I wanna kiss a girl
I wanna hold her tight
Maybe make a little magic in the moonlight
Don’t wanna go too far just to take it slow
But I shouldn’t be lonely in this big old world
I wanna kiss a girl”
What could be more romantic than walking, talking, and kissing under the moonlight? Getting a little playful and sneaking in some kisses lets your date know that she is admired and wanted, but respected enough to wait until the right time. There’s something memorable about kissing out in the open. It’s a romantic scenario that is sure to give her goosebumps, and a great first impression of you.
4. Brad Paisley “Mud on the Tires”
“Have you been outside it sure is a nice night
How about a little test drive
Down by the lake
There’s a place I know about where the dirt road runs out
And we can try out the four-wheel drive
Come on now what do you say
Girl, I can hardly wait to get a little mud on the tires”
This probably wasn’t a song you expected to find on the list, but mudding in a big truck is an easy, raw way to have a great time. You’ll get to show off your brave adventurous side as you navigate the ruts and turns, and she’ll use that as an opportunity to cling to you from the middle of the cab. You can keep it clean by rolling up the windows, or, if your date is as country as you are, roll down the windows and watch the mud fly. Afterwards, you both can cuddle up in the bed of the truck as you connect with nature, and, maybe each other.
5. Justin Moore “Small Town USA”
“Give me a Saturday night my baby by my side
A little Hank Jr. and a six pack of light
Old dirt road and I’ll be just fine”
This song is the purest way to have a laid-back, relaxed good time. You can’t go wrong with two people who are interested in each other, a six-pack, nature, and some good country music. She won’t have to worry about getting dressed to impress, and the two of you can focus on getting to know each other. If you take away the fancy restaurants, crowded movie theatres, and distracting noises of public places, you’re left with the easiest, fastest way to know if you want to go on a second date.
If you’ve ever heard the cliche “It’s the thought that counts”, you’ll understand why all of the above is important. Females appreciate how much effort you put into the date more than the amount of money you spent. The dates listed above cost very little or none at all, and they allow you to spend romantic one-on-one time together. What else could you ask for?
