I absolutely love going to the movies and I think it's a great idea for a first date. It doesn't require a ton of money, and you can tell a lot about someone's personality by his or her reactions in the theater. For instance, if you see a love story and your date sheds a tear, then you know he's the sensitive type. In a movie, you don't have to worry about awkward silences or searching for conversation topics like you sometimes have to on a standard dinner date. And if things are going well, you can always eat after the movie — you'll be guaranteed something to talk about then!
