But anything beyond that was a bust. As I kept frustratingly going along with this strategy, a pattern started to emerge. Of course I insisted on paying for everything. You should be trying to figure out if you like them.
But instead of just going down to the local ice cream shop and sampling a few different flavors every now and then, I was overcomplicating things. I was wasting so much time, money, and energy!

Shout out to Hitch. I still love you. Instead of going all-in with elaborate dates, keep it casual I love all out, impressive dates, but save them for someone you have a real mutual connection with.

The reason young Peter was terrible at dates was precisely this reason: I had a severe lack of empathy. The first dates were really all about me. Dating was about what I could get out of it.

Dating for women, overall, can feel hostile and unpredictable in comparison to what us guys experience.
So with that in mind, you need to approach a first date the same way I do with my style advice: with empathy. Splurging on Hamilton tickets for a first date? Baller, but way too much for someone who is basically an attractive stranger. Elaborate or expensive dates tend to only impress one type of girl, gold diggers. So keep it casual.

Are you free around 2pm? A stroll somewhere, like a park loop or farmers markets, should give you enough time to find a connection. Again, using the word date makes this clear as to what it is. Bonus points for showing her why the date is a good idea, like mentioning fantastic apple cider donuts. The Date Combine the two for a fun twist.
Covert day drinking and a walk! Grab a coffee drink at Starbucks, spike both of your drinks with a bit of bourbon, and take a walk somewhere nice with people around, like a farmers market. I recommend a vanilla latte with a bit of Bulleit Bourbon.
