First dates are tough: you don't want the person to know that you actually spend all your time in the same dingy dive, but no matter what super scientific online dating surveys say, dropping $100 on dinner reeks of trying too hard. Museums show you're cultured, but all the line-waiting and pretending to know about Kandinsky can get tiring. Movies: staid and boring (you're both just sitting in the dark!), and concerts are fine if you don't mind shouting over the bass.
