For Aries, the best date involves being physically active. You love to show off your fun side, and you feel most confident when you're doing an activity that gets the blood pumping and lets you lean into your competitive side. Consider an afternoon at your local rock climbing gym, where you and your date can tackle the challenge together. And if getting physical isn't your cup of tea, attending a sports game is another great idea.

Taurus: Wine Tasting

You're a lover of the finer things in life, Taurus. You like to take things slow and savor every moment. Your ideal first date allows you to sit back, unwind, and get to know the person you're with. As the sign ruled by Venus, the planet of romance, your idea of a great first date includes food and drink, which is why a wine tasting at your local restaurant or vineyard is sure to impress. Looking for a sober alternative? Try crafting a flight of delicious and colorful mocktails with your date instead.

Therefore, your ideal first date involves finding a local dive bar or alternative music venue for a night of karaoke. You'll be sure to get the adrenaline flowing and show off the real you.

You're not the most emotionally vulnerable sign, Capricorn, which can make dates difficult. However, when you get out of your head and let down your walls, others get to see just how sweet and goofy you are. You prefer a first-date location where the two of you can be alone and get to know one another. But you also have a competitive side, so axe throwing is a fun way to be active without a lot of other people around.

Your ideal date is somewhere you can see and experience others' energy, such as an art performance, a drag show, or even a burlesque show. The intimacy that comes with live entertainment will help you come out of your protective shell and connect more deeply with your date.
