Female Speaker 1: So you don't want to go play ping pong?

Female Speaker 2: No!

Female Speaker 1: Okay, that's fine. Let's talk about what type of restaurant you should be picking.

So obviously, you have to pick something that you can actually have a conversation in. If you're going to go to a restaurant, find something kind of middle of the road. You want to make sure your date feels comfortable but, at the same time you probably shouldn't be taking her to McDonald's for the first date.

So somewhere in the middle there lies a nice little Italian or whatever place where you can have a conversation and connect at. I think that's the biggest thing, it needs to feel romantic and it needs to feel like you can have an intimate conversation.

Female Speaker 2: Don't go anywhere too fancy. Your not putting on your tuxedo on the first date and your not going to make your date feel uncomfortable if she shows up in jeans and heels. So you need to find something that's kind of middle of the road. A bunch of different outfits would work for it. Not that you guys are thinking of this, but we are.

Female Speaker 1: Anything above a chain restaurant and below the Four Seasons is pretty much doable for a first date. You just feel you need to have a conversation. You need to be able to hear each other.

Female Speaker 2: A little Italian restaurant where you can have a little bottle of wine. Maybe even have a story about how you picked it out just to give something to talk about. Something that lends itself to a good environment. You want it to feel intimate and romantic but not too over the top.
