Traditional or unconventional? Rediculously creative or sweet and simple.. ?

Place, time and attire agreed by both parties. An open and fairly busy place. The first stage is to explore each other, see if there’s a spark and hopefully agree to a new date……

Sweet and simple for me lol. When I'm meeting for the first time it's always very casual and not much discussed prior to the meet. I usually suggest a coffee shop or pub with somewhere to go for a walk but I'm easy.

Depends if it is with someone that I know already, or never met before. Food and drink and good conversation is always enjoyable.

I don't mind as long as she is respectful and doesn't expect me to jump into bed with her just because she offers to buy lunch.

That sounds more like your fantasy, Mr Q. Do women usually try to bribe you with food to take advantage of your body?
Answer carefully, this could alter your dating ratings on MSE considerably. :)

A mutually agreed place, dress code, drinks ( Coffee, tea or latte with cake), and walk somewhere pleasant outdoors.

A bit like yesterday; arranged a time to collect from a pub near to their home, drove to a local town, found a good parking spot, walk by the river, explored a castle together, had a latte & cake, walked by the river, sat and talked, walk back to the car, drove to local town that is good for "eye tests", then dropped my friend of at their house, and I drove home. A good day was had out & about in the sunshine.

Looking forward to our next meeting.

My modus operandi when I was meeting people for first dates was a safe place, not too far from home, and make sure the venue has a rear exit or toilet window big enough for me to climb through ;-) I used to plan more interesting things if we'd been talking for a while or had met in person before and already knew it was likely to fly, but nothing that involves getting into a virtual stranger's car and if you have any doubts make sure you've made it a coffee date rather than a whole evening out.

I've never had a date disappear through the toilet window - yet! I suppose I would laugh if it did happen for real. I've never met anyone so awful I needed to do a runner.

In retrospect, a sweet and simple man would probably do me just fine.

Totally unconventional but in the public space. Maybe go to an event which gives us something mutual to chat about afterwards or just go our separate ways.

No dress code whatsoever. To coin Kurt Cobain of Nirvana "Come as you are."

You can over-think these things. If it's a first time meet then a relaxing coffee or drink in the pub and see how it goes.
