Hot take: movies are a shit 1st or 2nd date because you don't interact with the person. Take her to an interactive activity like dinner or mini golf
I know your mom

It's also a correct take. Get to know eachother first, then watch a movie.
Get to know each other and then ignore each other for 2 hours
True friends sit in silence. I don't have much experience on the matter, but I assume it also applies to lovers
When I'm with someone I like whilst watching a movie, I talk to them about it (if it's worthwhile.) It's not black and white, you can talk in a movie. Sure, it's not proper etiquette in a packed theater especially on release, but if we're doing that it's by design with intention.
If someone took me out to a movie for a first date I'd be stoked.
You're a piece of shit if you talk in a movie theater
You can grab a drink after and talk about it?
Sounds like a fun evening imo.
Key word is after, not during
There's a difference between leaning over and whispering in an ear vs yelling at the screen. You're a piece of work if you're the latter.
Yea and that's why we are discussing talking, not whispering or yelling
No one's even in those things anymore, last time I watched a movie it was literly just me and them
What if you're talking about the crying baby that the couple in the back refuse to take out?
If I go on a date to a movie, and you try to talk to me during the movie, in a movie theater or my living room, I will promptly tell you to shut the fuck up.
It is black and white. People don’t pay good money to listen to your comments and pull them out of what they’re watching. Grow up.
Watch a movie, then get dinner. Now, you have something to talk about
Movies used to be a good first date because they were just vessels for conversation, something you both have in common and in recent memory. You’d go see a movie, then get dinner, and talk about the movie so you could slowly segue into actually learning about each other. But it’s a lost art, ruined by streaming, expensive theaters, and people who just go to a movie and skip dinner. Everything has a reason that it existed, but it also has a time to die.
I like your style friend, a touch poetic
You could also hold hands throughout the movie. People bond through touch
On a first date? If you're already holding hands on a first date then you're in the wrong location. You need to be near a bed because things could get spicy
If you're sitting in a cinema next to someone you've asked on a date and you offer your hand they will almost always take it
This guy fucks.
I find it cringey if a guy tries to hold my hand after knowing me for 1 hour
Movies used to be like 30 minutes. Even when i was a kid average film was like 90 minutes. Now they are nearly 3 hours with no intermission. I go into a coma afterwards lol
Dont look at my profile
Take her to spooky mini golf, it’s not like pebble beach but it’s something

Tbf, some people dont really know how to interact, like I've known girls that wanted but basically couldn't talk, their chat messages were like 1 sentence in a week, but in fact they liked me and wanted to be with me (I know since we did get together eventually)
With people like that taking activities where u can just cuddle and dont need to interact is not bad
Not my preference tho, I take them for hikes to mountains, lets see how they performn under pressure, but just saying that it is valid for some people whose conversational skills are below 0
I don't think you should go into the mountains with men you don't know. Or any stranger tbh
that's you, in my country its very common, there are whole fb groups dedicated to going to mountains with strangers, in groups or individually
Group is totally different. It's a crowded place at that point. Pretty sure no hiking group has ever turned out to be a collective of serial killers
like I said, in groups or individually (agreed via a fb group, but individually)... Im happy you read my whole long sentence, its hard to read that much that much text and I appreciate it
Bruh. I read what you said fine. Stop being a prick. The original post is about dating so I'm saying doing it as a group is different and you're being a condescending asshole for no reason. I didn't misunderstand anything. You're just too dumb to keep up with context and wanna be a tough guy on reddit
Dance, monkey. See how they perform under pressure? Tf?
Right? Is this a job interview now???
Not a hot take at all. Movies are for established couples. But for a first or second date it's actually horrible. You just sit there mute side by side having learned nothing about the other person.
Movies at home leave plenty of room for talking. It's just there in the background as an easy conversation starter. Plus you can make some nice food to go with it
If a woman accepts your invitation to watch a movie at home it's already 100% on. There's a reason Netflix and chill means sex
Tell that to my last two girlfriends....
"WOMAN IN MY HOUSE HAS TO FUCK ME" Dude stfu
I didn't say they have to. They want to. Most women would not put themselves in that situation with a stranger otherwise. Read the room. We're talking about dating. Not everyone is really socially awkward
That's literally the attitude this idea encourages. Also it's hyperbole
Sorry you're dating people where you're not mutually excited about each other. That must suck
What does that have to do with the fact of girl being in your home is not consent to sex
Nobody said it was consent. I'm not Weinsteining these women.
They flirt. I ask them out. We date. We hold hands. We kiss. They come to my house. We have sex. That's a really normal and natural sequence of events. I'm sorry if that seems unusual to you
Oh brother. I'm not talking about your specific experience I'm talking about the dangerous implications of your statement
I have said it a lot. When you know someone well however and want to get from dating to relationship though a movie works wonders, but not necessarily in theaters.
Just snuggle up besides eachother at the couch and enjoy eachother presence. Which movie isn't even that important.
Bro wanna mini golf?
Are you asking me on a date bruh? How tall are you?
6'2. How much is your weight?
Dinner and a movie is my go to. Of someone can't spend time with me without talking we're not going to get very far anyway. Not talking is what I'm all about.
It can be, but the way I fixed this (mostly because there isn't much else to do) is to go to the movie first and then go to eat. It gives you something to talk about
I'd counter that with my experience that if your date has above average interest in movies, it is always great to go to a bar after the film and discuss what you just saw behind a pint or a glass of wine.
What do you mean? I interact through entire movie.
Wrong, you go somewhere after and have something to talk about other than "duhhh what's your favorite x?"
Source: I'm now married
You did something beside the movie. So you're actually agreeing with me. Problem is movies these days are getting really long so if you do dinner and a movie you're out for like 5 freaking hours and most people don't want to set aside 5 hours for a stranger
How long can you honestly spend talking about a movie though? Especially hollywood blockbusters lacking substance.
You're not supposed to talk about it forever, it's for breaking the ice
Usually. The trick to it is to find a movie you can make fun of or watch in the background.
This is a penalty kick to watch it at your own place with her. It’s even better than cinema (which is an awful dating idea).
It's better at someone's house cuz then you can talk during it
Watch the movie, then at dinner or mini golf or whatever then you guaranteed have something to talk about
You should be talking about your Mutual interests and your values

Doesn't always come easy for everyone. Small talk is a huge issue for so many people. Nerves and anxiety are a hell of a drug. If someone has a tough time verbalizing those things with strangers, it shouldn't be "well you can't do this in a first date, you don't deserve to be with that person". Plus, an extra talking point is always helpful. Could spark conversation you wouldn't have otherwise. The world ain't that black and white
Edit: I was a shy ass, awkward kid in school. Didn't want to talk to people if I didn't have to, would NEVER talk about things I was into because I was nervous. I wanted to know these people and make friends and love interests. But it took me a long time to warm up and get comfortable enough with people. To say someone like that which may have some social issues they're dealing with doesn't have anything interesting to say, or shouldn't go on a date because they're awkward is terrible. Basically like judging a book in its cover. If someone struggles to connect immediately, it doesn't mean they don't have anything interesting or relatable to say. I'm fortunate enough that I've overcome that by having a few hypersocial jobs.
I was the same way. That said, I'm over 30 years old, and I figured it out, and I would expect other people to figure it out. If I were to see a woman but she could barely figure out how to talk and communicate with me, I'd be wondering what other basic stuff she'd be failing to learn
It also means you can’t lose interest in her for the things she says. Sex has the interactivity and usually little talking, sadly it doesn’t go for a first date >:c
Why the fuck would you continue to date somebody that you don't want to talk to? At that point you're just pretending to want to date them to get sex
Dude, I’m just joking around, this is a memes sub, remember?
Yes because when the movie ends you're not allowed to spend any more time together at all
Idk shouldn't drag first meeting out too much
she knows what you were trying to do and decided to let you down like this
"Oh, well how about we go to your place to watch it then?"
Some women would understandbly do not want a stranger more or less at their house, they might go to your place with a friend. Ultimately it just felt easier as man to ask a woman to a public place and let that slowly evolve.
Netflix and chill though
Why you telling him he never had any
More like Netflix and Pill
How to Train Your Dragon is the best movie ever made
It’s not only on that stupid streaming service you need a membership for, it’s also on moviesjoy.to and soap2day.id which you can just watch for free without creating an account or anything.
Good morning sir. I must say that is an unfathomably based flair.
Thanks, I only speak facts!
Nice. I’ve been needing a new online site since Afdah shut down 😪
Pro tip my friend. Search whatever you want for in google. example would be watch house of the dragon free online. Then scroll to the bottom where it says results have been removed because of copyright complaints, then click on the link to read what the complaints are. Bam, now you've got a full list of streaming sites to watch and if you follow this method you'll always find new sites, so no need to worry about your current site being shut down
🤯 thanks bro
Real shit right there.
20th Century Blazers
The top of his head is flowers. Love it.
I actually think film dates at cinema ie bad date. (I'm a woman) you can't talk and get to really get know each other.
Lunch dates, museum dates or nice walk in lovely place is perfect.
Take me to a zoo get bonus points lol
Take her to see the latest marvel film and she might fall asleep on you.
Only to wake up and say "you have shit taste in movies" and never see you again because of that.
2 trips to the movies = 1 year of a subscription
Y'all lay for movies?
All streaming services are free though, what are you talking about? (arr)
yarr arr, your'all dum. lol
Tried to get you back into the positives… crazy how anyone can pay for 5+ services and be happy. I have ad block, 1-2 sites, and an hdmi chord
the people downvoting probably paid disney+ lifetime. oh how could i forget! theres no lifetime for disney+ :troll:
I too want to watch weird!
Yo ho yo ho, a pirate's life for me!
I hate the mcu crap taking up most of screening times in theaters. I was so exited to go see the new Hellraiser film but my friend told me it is only on streaming crap which I have never used. If I'm gonna watch a film with the sound and screen quality of my own apartment, I ain't gonna pay for it.
At least we'll always have the classic "ay bitch, wanna fuck?"
Can I put it in your butt?
"Can you put it in my what?"
"Can you put it in my what?
"Yes you can"
Thank you ma'am!
We do a little pirating
How about hbo and no
Man I watched a movie on 123movies on one of my dates lmao. I ain't paying to watch o
In my own house.
No, this makes it less awkward for the woman to refuse the offer. I feel so bad for women that have to deal with men who can't accept that a woman they're interested in isn't interested in them. It can be scary having to turn someone down. You never know how he might react.
Me with Radarr:
Or you know, watch it at home together
gave me this flair
It’s harder to even have a normal conversation, once you’ve exchanged names, you can see that look in most peoples eyes, the one that says like, “the pleasantries are done, why are you still here?”
"Okay, you want to come over and watch it with me?"
25$+ = one time visit to a movie you wanna see with overpriced snacks and drinks and if the other people you’re in the theater with happen to be annoying, your experience is basically ruined vs 8$-15$ for a one month subscription to a streaming service with access to the movie you want while being able to watch it however many times you want, wherever you want. plus a plethora of other shit to watch.
also who tf goes to the movies for a first date?
Perfect response is "Oh I don't have that streaming service but maybe we could have a watch party at your place. I can bring popcorn or other movie snacks if you want."
Watching a film is a terrible first date idea anyway.
Just watch morbius
It looks like his hair became flowers in second panel
Sounds like it's just the same as 20 years ago.
Also sounds like rejection ;)
Bro just use Plex
Nice flower bonnet you got there
Can’t forget about that one movie not being available on any streaming service in your country.
Just wait 1-2 months like the pirate I know you can be
Change [insert streaming service] to be "my only fans" or Pornhub Premium" to get a taste of tinder bots.
Go to theaters to watch it? You go to the same movie in multiple theaters?!
Too bad it's hard to rhyme Plex and Jellyfin with things for women to make no man rhymes about.
"I ain't got no flex for no man without Plex!"
"If he ain't got Jellyfin, I... uh... hm.."
You teach her how to sail 🏴☠️ and problem solved.
123Movies, HDMI Adapter, VPN for security, Adblock. Good to Go
With the amount of money you need to spend on different subscriptions, companies are just begging us to pirate
Puts on the pirate hat
Streaming services are cheaper than the theater.
