Third date with this girl tonight. Maybe date isn't the right word because we're not going anywhere. I'm taking her home and then we're ordering a pizza and watching one or two movies.

But which movies? I know she doesn't like action or horror. She says she likes a movie with a good story.

Guys. Girls. Tell me, what are your favourite movies for a night in with your potential love interest? That could give me some ideas.

Something not very good, or something we've both seen before, cos we are probably not going to get to the end of it :lol:

Might give a more serious answer later.

Honestly you're right. When I was with a previous girl we were unable to get to the end of 300 because we were "distracted" by each other.

I think this new girl likes to take things slowly. We didn't even kiss until the end of our second date. So I'd better pick out a good movie on the off chance she actually wants to watch it.

These movies have, in my opinion, interesting storylines. Not action or horror. And they have either no sex scene, or not much of one. I don't know you or your date, but plenty of people feel awkward watching sex scenes with someone they are already a bit nervous around, or someone they don't know that well.

Inception
The Martian
Arrival
Passengers

If she doesn't like sci-fi, my list is probably crap. I think mainstream sci-fi is a good genre for dates though.

Good ideas. Sci-fi sounds like a winner. Perhaps I could show her 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I wouldn't call that mainstream, though. If she's not into it she'll probably fall asleep!

I see your point. In that case I probably shouldn't show her Metropolis either.

Good ideas. I've only seen a few of those. A sure sign that I need to watch more movies.

When I was single, I didn't like going to "safe" movies for a first date. If we saw a quirky, perverse or intellectually challenging movie and it was too "weird" for her, then I'd know she probably wasn't for me.
