What do you think about a first date at the cemetery?Page 4 of 7    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
I went to a couple of cemeteries with my ex girlfriend...

The first was kind of sad as our family priest - a good friend of our family was buried there along with a few of my friends from school, it was a very poignant moment for me. The other was where Shakespeare is buried in Stratford - we walked along the river.

She slid down the embankment and almost fell in the river...I caught her, but she almost knocked me in. Luckily being a fairly big guy, I managed to catch myself. I digress. I think being in a cemetery can show you a whole different side of a person that you may otherwise never get to see - it can be a very enlightening experience.

I'm not sure I would use that as a "date" idea - it could be perceived as being a little creepy, but if you want to see the sensitive side of someone...well, me, then this would do it. Not that I hide my sensitive side that much.

Arlington National Cemetary.......Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.


I've been there before and it made me cry. I never felt so insignificant as I did standing amongst row after row after row of tomstones. I don't like people that shove what veterans did for for freedom down my throat every day - but that day - I saluted them, every one.

It makes me cry just thinking about it.

I think the date or adventure you went on sounds interesting. A few friends of mine and myself like to visit the cemetery for a walk, to check out the old tombstones, or sometimes i do go to sit awhile on a bench and write. It is a peaceful place.

Since the two of you started to get a little creeped out and left together i dont see where he could be that odd. I find that he was being open minded, interesting, creative perhaps.

My one friend and i used to go and sit under this old weeping willow tree. He would bring his flute and play a few tunes very quietly. The sound of the flute was outstanding in the cemetery.

Have you seen this guy again? What are his other interests? If you felt comfortable with him, by all means try a second date.

No joking aside . If the first date was at Arlington National that would be impressive. That is a very historic cemetery and the person probably shows he/she has some intellect about themselves

Interesting thread.

I don't think there's anything too weird about going to a cemetery for a date. I live not too far from one of the largest and most historic cemeteries in the Toronto area. Tonnes of people go for walks through it all the time. I've wandered through it with friends a few times as well. It's quiet, serene, and perfect for talking and getting to know someone.

And if this guy turns out to be "the one", that's one pretty cool first date story you can tell people when you get older.

Now, if he had taken you there at 2 in the morning with a backpack full of crosses, silver stakes, and holy water, that's a totally different situation ... .

..dont forget the cloves of garlic too

even though i have already answered this thread quite awhile ago..its great to see others have dropped by..tis the Halloween season upon us..and i find nothing wrong with going for a walk in the cemetery.

As already mentioned by the last person who posted..if it was at 2am or some odd hour of the night - then i would NOt be going to the cemetery for a first date.

When we were younger we would go to the cemetery ...get that unsuspecting friend in the car with us - go for a little drive - and have a scary good laugh. Does this mean i need psychological help?

I like cemetaries, they are peaceful and historic. I think a great one to visit would be Hollywood Forever in California.

That sounds like a cool date, cemetaries can be fascinating places of history. My problem is the banshees would molest me.

My grandmother lives right beside a cemetary and as kids we used to go in there to play, sometimes we would fall sleep on the graves.....so for me that would b eno big deal because I'm used to it and to be honest I think with the world the way it is today I would feel much safer in a cemetary on a date than at a mall or in a theatre.....too many people getting shot.......and for the stupidest reasons.....

Cemetary love connections...bring it on

Well I like cemetaries -- nice real estate, neighbors are quiet.

Actually I have gone on a few group dates by going to cemetaries. There are some that I have been to that date back to before the Revolutionary War and the tombstones are so faded, you cant make out the lettering.

I think people who are into cemetaries show a certain quality about themselves. Yes, for those who are conventional, it may sound sick and twisted. But, I am not conventional. And I am a cheap date who would rather look at the nature of things than the evils surrounding every day.

well, to each their own. it would'nt have been how i wanted to spend my time on a date, but if you were happy and he was happy, and no one vandalized anything while you were there, then no harm, no foul. lots of us will end up there sooner or later anyway.......lol

I'm a weird one...I think cemeteries have a relaxing, ethereal quality to them so I can appreciate a date like that. It's unique, different and interesting. Besides, it doesn't matter where the place is as long as you truly enjoyed his company.....

I was going to say, CREEPY!! But if it's a historic kind of place... then I think that's kind of neat... show's he put some thought into it, probably thought he'd try something creative. I'd say it got you thinking, didn't it? That was probably the goal.

Go out with him again, but if he shows up with rope and a shovel... RUNNNN!

I don't believe it would be inappropriate. Cemeteries are often very beautiful, and can be quite a pleasant place to take a stroll. I just recently took a long walk in one of the coolest cemeteries imaginable, (check it out, for those who have never seen a "really" cool cemetery , www.pere-lachaise.com ) and would actually take someone there on a first date myself if they were alright with it. Got to see Jim Morrisons grave and headstone, that and many other famous people. Saw lots of things that would make for good conversation.
