21 beautiful first date locations you need to know about

I met someone at a festival earlier this year. Sparks flew, and we exchanged phone numbers. After some witty banter and meme exchanging via WhatsApp, he finally set the first date. A lunch date!

Honestly, I wasn’t overly excited. Is there anything more boring than a lunch date? First, there are absolutely zero chances of getting tipsy. It is an overly intimate way of getting to know someone. Besides, one has to act proper, perfect, and poised! Doesn’t it simply scream out interview vibes to you? Wait, am I being mean?
