Where to go on your first date?

Where the first date takes place can contribute much to a happy ending of an online dating love story. Of course, the choice depends on the preferences of the partners, but a few guidelines can help you find the right place.
Regardless whether online flirt, casual date or potentially true love: a stranger, whom you only know from the internet, should only be met in a public place and (not to exclude a subsequent change of scenery as mutual decision) never in your own home or in a remote location. 
It’s advisable to plan an activity that is fun for both. That way there is distraction if the conversation falls a little flat or the date is a bust, at least you’ve had a nice evening in the theater/museum visit/walk in the park.
Nevertheless, one should not make excessively elaborate plans, but rather do something that meets common interests so that both can be relaxed.
