The gist of it is that before going on a first date, the first three dates need to be completely planned out, with attention paid to newness, coolness, and locations across the boroughs.
And you will leave feeling exposed, a little vulnerable, and very hungry. The steaming-hot baths, ice-cold tubs, and holy-hell-what-is-happening-to-my-body “flotarium” make for a highly sensual experience that you have to surrender to — as if you’re the star of your own soft-core porn.
But don’t make it harder than it has to be by subjecting your date -- and yourself -- to a painfully ordinary night of dinner and drinks.
We've broken down the very best options, based on what date you're on.

You certainly won't blow your date's mind by suggesting any of them.
