question of the day: Are movies good for a first date?

CNN.com posed this question the other day in a “lifestyle” article, and it seems like the perfect QOTD for us:

Are movies good for a first date?

Not for me: I don’t want to go to a movie with someone I don’t know well, and I certainly don’t want to go with someone when the point of being together is to try to get to know each other. I go to the movies to watch the movie, to really concentrate on the movie itself — I don’t want to be distracted (not even in a good way) by the person I’m with.

For subsequent dates, a movie might be okay, because how a person talks about a movie afterward — can he articulate why he reacted to it the way he did, or is he only capable of saying, “I liked it” or “I hated it” and nothing else? — can be a pretty good indication of how he deals with a lot more things beyond movies

Ideally, though, movie dates are best when you know for sure in advance that you’ll be able to have a good argument about it afterward… especially if it’s one of those arguments where you end up agreeing with each other in the end.

(If you have a suggestion for a QOTD, feel free to email me.)
