MM: Nix The Coffee Shop Date

with

JJ Tomlin

Today we’re diving into another mini mansode where JJ explains why we should skip the coffee shop date and gives creative first date ideas!

Introduction

Hey HOD fam! We are back! We’ve got an exciting episode lined up for you today. Our host, JJ, is here to chat about why coffee shop first dates might need to be a thing of the past and spill some awesome alternative ideas. Trust us, you’ll want to share this one with all your single friends. Alright, let’s dive in!

Coffee Date Controversy

So, onto the good stuff: JJ’s Instagram post about ditching coffee shop first dates stirred up quite a bit of discussion. Some of you loved the idea, and some of you... not so much. JJ’s main point? He just wants to help guys create first dates that are memorable and meaningful, not stressful.

The First Date Objective

JJ broke down the goal of a first date: to gather just enough info to decide if you want a second date. It’s not about figuring out if you want to marry them right then and there. Coffee dates can sometimes stifle the process of really getting to know someone’s personality.

Alternative Date Ideas

Here are some cool alternatives to the old coffee date:

1. Active Dates: Tennis, pickleball, hiking.

2. Public Places: Grab a coffee to-go and stroll through a park.

3. Fun and Games: Bring a board game to the park, or hit a par-three golf course.

Understanding Safety

JJ reminds us to keep dates in safe, public environments. Think about making sure your date feels comfortable and secure.

Making It Fun and Lighthearted

Bring some fun into the mix! Icebreakers, question games, or just choosing an engaging activity can make the first date a lot more enjoyable and less stuffy.

Final Thoughts

JJ wraps up with some advice: Tailor your dates to the person you’re getting to know.

 Remember, the goal is to create a fun, relaxed space where both you and your date can really connect.

Go out there and crush it on your next first date. We believe in you!
