How Do I Make My Cinema Date Go Well? 4 Flirting Tips

flirting tips for a first date

If you want to make your cinema date go well, make sure that you pick the perfect movie, you get to the cinema early, and you’re always breaking the touch barrier.

Getting to the cinema early isn’t just essential when it comes to any date, but there are also quite a few other benefits for why you’ll want to do that.

More about that soon, as we’re going to talk about why picking the perfect movie is essential for having the time of your life during this date.

1) Pick The Perfect Movie

You might find this hard to believe, but picking the perfect movie will allow for a much easier flirting process.

Before I explain why you need to understand the types of movies that your date likes to watch. After all, horror movies are perfect for watching, but not if your date avoids them like the plague.

Here are a few of the biggest genres of movies, and why you might want to go for them:

  • Action: high five whenever an extraordinary action scene happens.
  • Horror: you and your date can get close together (thanks to the scares).
  • Romance: give your date a nudge when a character does something you like.
  • Comedy: share a laugh together, lightly touch them, and ask “Wasn’t that hilarious?”

Now, the important thing here is that picking the perfect movie allows you to break the touch barrier.

Given the fact that you can’t exactly talk a lot during a movie, you’ll have to let your body language and hands do a lot of the talking (so to speak).

So if you and your date are down to see a horror movie; do it. These types of movies come with many great jump-scare moments that can bring you closer together.

More about this later though.

This is something that you’re going to want to figure out and decide before you go to the movie theater, and that’s a big reason as to why it’s the first big tip for having a successful movie date.

2) Get To The Cinema Early

You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression, and you might not be flirting if you don’t get to the movie on time.

This might as well be fundamental when it comes to having a good movie date experience, but you’d be surprised how many people mess this up.

There shouldn’t be any reason why you’re running late to your movie date, unless, of course, a true emergency occurs that is out of your hands.

Another big reason for getting to the movie theater earlier is the fact that you get to talk with your date for a good amount of time before.

When you think about it, going on a date to the movies is quite a funny experience. You want to spend time with someone, but most of the time you end up staring at a screen and saying nothing.

Don’t worry about that though, as there are plenty of ways to flirt and make your cinema date turn out well, even while you’re watching a movie.

3) Lightly Break The Touch Barrier

Given the fact that there’s not a lot of conversation happening during the movie, you’re going to have to do a lot of speaking with your hands, in a good way.

The first big tip talked about picking the perfect movie. Here’s where this starts to make even more sense, and it’s for the fact that certain movies allow you to easily break the touch barrier.

Here are a few of the biggest genres of movies, and why you might want to go for them:

  • Action: high five whenever an extraordinary action scene happens.
  • Horror: you and your date can get close together (thanks to the scares).
  • Romance: give your date a nudge when a character does something you like.
  • Comedy: share a laugh together, lightly touch them, and ask “Wasn’t that hilarious?”

Here you get to use what the movie offers as a way of connecting with your date.

Plus, some moments will be so hilarious (or even horrifying, depending on the movie) that you’ll never forget them, should you continue to see this person after the date.

Lightly breaking the touch barrier is a great way to let your know date know that you are interested in them, and it’s all done in very subtle ways:

  • Putting your arm around them.
  • Moving closer to them once you’re in your movie seats.
  • Holding each other tightly during a very scary movie moment.
  • Holding their hand (if you end up feeling comfortable doing so).
  • And if you really feel comfortable, there’s always the option of kissing.

The movie isn’t the only time when you can constantly break the touch barrier either. Here’s one more great tip that allows you to flirt even more, especially since a movie won’t be playing.

4) Plan For Something After The Movie

Want to allow for more flirting after the cinema date and make it even better? Add dinner or any other activity for after the movie is over.

Why limit yourself to the times that you can interact with your date? Planning for something (ahead of time) for after the cinema date can allow you to:

  • Break the touch barrier (even more).
  • Get to know much more about your date.
  • Sit down and talk one on one with no distractions.
  • Lock eyes (something that you can’t do when staring at a screen).

Keep in mind that this is something that can be planned ahead, or it can also be a spur-of-the-moment idea.

After all, sometimes it’s best to pick after seeing a movie, just in case you don’t happen to connect with your date (hey, it happens sometimes).

Here are some ideas of plans that you can come up with after the movie has ended:

  • Relax together.
  • Go for a fun drive.
  • Get food (dinner and a movie go hand in hand).
  • Take a fun class together (depending on the time).
  • Mini-golf (another great way to get close to each other).

The fact of the matter is that if you want to have a great cinema date with lots of flirting? Then one of your best options to keep the date alive is by adding another activity.

Regardless of what fun activity you do after your movie date, make sure that you’re always flirting with your date. If you really have a thing for them, of course.

What Do You Do On A Cinema Date? Final Words

The amount of fun you have on a cinema date will ultimately come down to what you do before, during, and after the movie is over.

Recapping what was mentioned previously, you want to start by picking out the perfect movie for you two to watch.

If you and your date don’t mind watching a scary movie, then I highly recommend that. Scary movies come with plenty of jump scares which will allow you to get closer when the movie begins.

After picking out the perfect movie and scheduling the date, you want to make sure that you get there early.

Not only is this a fundamental of going on dates (not being late), it also allows you to speak to each other and make eye contact because that’s hard to do once the movie begins.

During your cinema date, you’ll also want to be frequently breaking the touch barrier. This means that you’ll be looking for subtle ways to touch your date, in a normal and non-creepy way.

Examples include:

  • Holding hands.
  • Hugging when you first see each other.
  • Get much closer to your date in your seats.
  • Lightly touching their arm during a peak moment in the movie.
  • And don’t forget about the possibility of kissing (if you feel that it’s right).

Last but not least, you don’t have to limit yourselves to just spending time at a movie theater. Think about all of the other possibilities for fun activities after the movie is over. This allows for more fun and flirting.

At the end of the day, go with the flow, be respectful of your date, and see where things go. This could be the first of many more fun dates in the future.
