Day 3 from 30 Day Blog Challenge: Your idea of the perfect first date. My first date with my current bf was actually pretty perfect in my books so i'll just tell you about that. :)
Over 3 years ago when we first started dating, I was still working at a hotel. One of the perks of working in a hotel is getting the chance to go to all the popular tourist spots in your area for FREE! They did this so that you would be better able to help guests with their experience in the city.
On our first date, we decided to go to Capilano Suspension Bridge, a very popular tourist destination here in Vancouver. You cross a bridge that's about 230 feet above the river and there are many trails and things to see on the other side. One thing you may not know about me is that i'm scared of heights but i love the thrill. My boyfriend is scared of heights too and he later told me that he wasn't pleased that we went there but he didn't mind that I kept grabbing on to him for protection. hahaha!
After that, we went for a nice Italian dinner in the city where he recommended I order a PESTO PASTA of all things!!! I barely even ate any because I was so conscious about little green things being stuck in my teeth. haha!
We ended the evening with dessert at a nice place by the water - all in all a perfect evening :) As long as there is good food and good conversation for a first date, it's good to me! Don't you hate first dates where the majority of the time you're just looking around the room, sipping your water every 5 seconds hoping that'll help you bring up a new topic to talk about? Awwwkkkkward.
