Having Fun Together
One of the most important things to establish when first dating are what a couple has in common. If both love to go to museums and art galleries, they have found an enjoyable way to spend time together. It is perfectly acceptable when their dates are comprised of visiting museums and art galleries. They can do this without hesitation. Neither will be on a date with someone that doesn't appreciate their pastime. This makes the date even more enjoyable because the couple can explore their passion together.
There are many things people like to do that are quite surprising. Some people adore Renaissance Fairs. Other people are interested in flying machines such as airplanes and helicopters. Exploring ancient ruins like Stonehenge is another interest. Dating is about finding companions and sharing experiences. Finding a compatible person means they want to do many, but not all, of the same things.
