Figuring out where to go for a first date might seem like an easy decision, but if you're trying to impress your date, it's understandable to start second-guessing every suggestion you make. Drinks or coffee? Too cliché! Dinner? Too much pressure! Movie? No chance to get to know each other! You get the idea — it's totally normal to over-think the first date activity, especially because creative date ideas can seem so hard to come up with in the first place.
Truthfully, the location of your first date isn't necessarily make-or-break; if you have a connection, the two of you could probably have a great time doing virtually anything (even failing miserably at bar trivia, for example). Although you're still on your own when it comes to figuring out the perfect first date, Twitter users have kindly taken to using the hashtag #BadFirstDateLocations to fill us all in on what *not* to do if you want to woo your date the first time around.
Here are 13 of the funniest, strangest anti-suggestions for first date locations that Twitter users have to offer — and for all the people who (hopefully facetiously) advised against a funeral first date, I just have one word: really?
1. This *Unique* Exhibit
2. At Least Go In The Store, Guys

So now that you know where not to take your date, all that's left to do is plan a fun, creative first date — which will hopefully lead to many more!
