If you know the area where you are going, check online for events scheduled in the area. Get at least three suggestions to ask your date's opinion. If your date leaves it up to you, be organized and make arrangements. Your date is saying that he or she is trusting you to surprise them with a fun time. Make reservations if needed. If you're traveling a distance and need gas, take care of it before you pick up your date. Another big preparation detail is cleaning out your vehicle before a date.
