This is an issue that came up tangentially in another thread... I have usually gone out on one or maybe two dates with a girl and then for the next date either invite her to my house for dinner (a nice home-cooked meal and a bottle of wine) or invite her to my house to watch a movie on DVD. If I am really, really into the girl I opt for dinner, and if anything less than 100% IL on my part I go for the movie date. I usually schedule the first few dates on weeknights if possible rather than Friday or Saturday nights Some other DJs have suggested you should not invite a girl to your home for as long as 6 or 7 dates. I have always been of the mind that once a connection is established (which should occur within one or two dates or else you seem to be headed straight for LJBF-land) it is time to get them to your house and on the comfy couch so that making out or more is easy in a private setting. What are your thoughts?
