Here are a few tips that can help you turn your movie date into a stepping stone for love and a lot more.
What’s the best type of movie to watch on a date?
Depending on your date’s choice and yours, you can pick a movie that both of you will enjoy. [Read: How to get to know someone on a date]
# Drama and romance isn’t perfect for a first date. It’s too involving and emotional. Your date can’t immediately fall in love with you. You need to create the stage of infatuation and excitement first.
# Horror is too obvious. It can excite both of you with bursts of fear and adrenalin. But at the same time, it can cut the budding romance now and then with sudden shrieks and involuntary distractions.
# Movies where there’s a lot of making out. This is just pushing it. It’s too obvious on a first date and it sends the wrong impression that all you want to do is get physical.

# Action movies are awesome, especially the ones where there are a lot of fast cars and edge of your seat moments. But there’s a hitch. Action movies are not everyone’s cup of tea. If both of you are seriously interested in action, it’s definitely the best option. The pumping adrenalin can excite both of you sexually and emotionally without inducing fear.
# Funny movies or a romantic comedy is just perfect. Keeps the atmosphere light, and the plot is so simple that it’s okay to be distracted. Romantic comedies and Adam Sandler’s movies are the best first date movies of all time. It’s fun and easy, and your date won’t hate you every time you ask them something or try to make a conversation about Adam Sandler’s egghead.
How to dress for a movie date
Well, it’s just a movie, really. Go casual and dress exactly how you’d dress when you watch a movie with any of your friends. It’s a first movie date and it’s still about looking good and making a good impression on your date though.
One important tip, wear good perfume, especially around your neck. You need to leave a lingering fragrance every time both of you come close. [Read: What to wear on a date]
Be nice to each other
Don’t forget your manners or the fact that both of you are at a date, just because you’re busy watching a movie. If you’re the guy, be chivalrous. If you’re the girl, be a cute damsel.

Get into the comfort zone
While watching the movie, use these tips to get into each other’s comfort zone without being pushy or intrusive.
# Use the excuse of loud scenes to talk to each other. Just like in a club, it gives an excuse to get into the other person’s comfort zone.
# Intentionally say something softly so your date has to come closer to you. Use the excuse to shift your butt closer too. The only thing between both of you must be the few inches of armrest. [Read: How to accidentally kiss someone]
Build up the flirty touches
Once you’re both sitting really close, use these moves to build the sexual chemistry. You have to remember that the focus is on building the infatuation and the attraction. Love will follow soon enough.
# Use the big tub of popcorn as an excuse to touch your date’s hand softly now and then. Don’t overdo it though. Just a couple of times during the entire movie would be perfect.
# Place your elbow on a small part of the armrest or adjust your hand really close to the armrest. Don’t make it seem like you’re hogging the armrest though. Instead, make it appear like there’s a lot of space for your date to sit comfortably or rest their hand.
# When your date rests their hand on the armrest or gets it close at some point, bring your arm really close to theirs. But don’t be obvious. Wait for a few minutes and try to touch each other’s arms with the slightest of touches.
And when your arm does touch your date’s arm, don’t move your arm away. Just sit back and focus on the arms touching. Your intense focus on enjoying your date’s touch and wanting more will set the same vibrations in your date and make them enjoy your touch too! [Read: The art of flirting by touch]
Take the plunge
Nudge your arm closer after a while. If both your arms have been touching for more than five minutes, it’s only a matter of time before one of your arms get sore and prickly. Don’t let it get to that point without doing something about it. After a few minutes, get brave and ever-so-slightly, shift your arm in an obvious manner towards your date. Pretend like you’re focused on the movie though. Does your date reciprocate back by bring their arm closer to yours?
No matter how your date behaves, don’t worry about it. You’ve already set the ball in motion with your casual touch. The only reason you had to nudge the arm was to let your date know that you know that both of your arms have been touching each other’s. [Read: 20 signs of attraction on the first date]
Go close, really close
Go really close to your date after about ten minutes and if you’re a guy, softly whisper into your date’s ear and ask your date if she’s having a good time. If you’re the girl, go really close to his ear and softly tell him that you’re having a great time.
If you want, you can clasp your date’s hand briefly while saying that.
You’ve built the touch and both of you would be feeling very intimate in the dim setting by now. All you need is a few excuses to get your faces and lips really close to each other’s faces.
If you’ve worked your moves well and patiently, you would have impressed and made your date fall head over heels in infatuation already.
Love will soon follow, as long as both of you are sexually attracted to each other. If you want to, and you feel like everything’s going perfectly, you can kiss your date either on the cheeks or on the lips if there is any reciprocation during the movie.
Don’t end the date abruptly
Even if you don’t want to risk a big jump by trying to kiss your date, don’t end the date immediately after the movie. It’s too abrupt. [Read: How to end a date the right way]
You’ve built the momentum and you need to end the date with romance to create the balance of love after stroking your date’s sexual infatuation.
Go for coffee or dinner. Or even for dessert. Anything, as long as it’s somewhere cozy and calm. [Poll: Best places to go on a date]
End with a good impression
Plan the second date, or take the first date further. Either ways, it’s all good and depends on the way the date goes and your date reciprocates to you.
