I thought we were supposed to be thinking of ways to get into the box.

Skating is my number one date, at least it was during university.


Most girls could skate at least reasonably well, but they would still ask for lessons (I've played hockey since I was 4, so I'm decent at skating) Talking during skating is easy.

There's all kinds of points to be scored, we usually end up skating hand in hand, and if they're a better skater than I am, it's also really fun to have a competitive date, haha.

Afterwards it's easy to transition to a coffee date, something that is usually overdone, but after skating it works well.

Well, the thing about this girl is, its not like I am super super interested in her, she is one of my coworkers so we have had time to hang out in the past. We already know bits and pieces about eachother and email eachother a lot. The dating game in Japan is a different beast than in the US. Lots of girls want to go on group dates for the first run, if I didnt know her somewhat before hand I would be stuck in that situation. This girl is really innocent and nice (I mean like no experience, but is sweet and mostly cute). All in all I just dont want to pressure her or anything. Originally I wanted to go to a "Planetarium Bar", but since she wont be drinking booze and its an all you can drink + course food deal, I'd rather keep that one in my back pocket for a later date or a different girl. Lots of really unconventional date places here and actually shooting pool is pretty unusual. Maybe, Ill take her to that for the start then take her to Omotesando and stroll through the Christmas illumination. Edit: she canceled for Tues, sick and has homework due next week after the holiday. Planning on meeting up on Thanksgiving I guess. Oh and Rube, your age and wisdom show in every post.

Anything unconventional that spikes her emotions is good (eg., any activity date).

Avoid the movies, unless you want to just sit there, and not talk. Not usually the best way to get a second date.

Also make sure to keep an escape route handy. If the date gets scary, head for the door - no regrets.

And even if you're a master, if the girls is dull and nonresponsive, it's still gonna be awkward

Exactly.

I always liked to take women to art galleries (not museums). It's a blast, and you learn a lot about someone from their reaction to art. Not only what they like, but how they like art, and whether they're able to articulately express what they mean.

Whatever you do, though, have a plan. Women hate it when you don't.
