If you’re younger, a dinner date might seem a little formal.
If you’d like to keep it casual, suggest getting a coffee somewhere you both probably know.
Otherwise, group dates and movies are an easy way to get to know someone without too much pressure.
As a general rule, whoever suggested the outing should at least, offer to pay first.
But it’s becoming more common to split payments on dates – especially when you’re both students – so don’t be alarmed if your date wants to chip in as well. There are more Australians with Facebook accounts than without.
A very average Aussie relationship might go something like this: You meet at work or school, and you talk and get to know each other.
The first time you hang out, it’s probably not on a formal date.
The main thing to remember is that we don’t have a huge pick-up culture here. Try to have at least one decent conversation before you ask to see more of someone.
Generally, people will want to know someone a bit before they agree to share contact details or hang out somewhere. This totally depends on what kind of people you are.
This makes for a pretty fun and flexible dating culture, which forces people to get to know one another.
