Deciding where to go on a first date in Montreal can be difficult, so MTL Blog is here to help you in your search.\nWe made a list of public spaces that are perfect to go when you're meeting someone for the first time.\nCheck out our list of first date spots below!\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nFirst dates are always stressful, especially when you haven't met the person previously. But, as online dating becomes the norm in our generation, it's becoming more and more common to go on dates with someone you haven't met before. With this in mind, MTL Blog made a list is that's jam-packed with cool first date ideas in Montreal, all of which are ideal for those hopeless romantics looking for love in the big city.\nBefore my single life came to an end, I went through the dating app phase and learned that you don't really know who you are speaking with until you meet with them face to face. I found that meeting someone in a public area and doing an activity together almost always turned into a good time.\nThe thing about dating is that you can never predict how the other person is going to act or feel, which is why the least you can do is plan properly.\nFrom food halls to museums, our city is full of great spots that seem to be made for dating app meetups. Just remember, there is nothing that is forcing you to stay during a date if you feel uncomfortable. Be safe, have fun, and I hope you find that special someone!\nTime Out Market\nWhere: 705 rue Saint-Catherine O.\nView this post on Instagram Spaghetti alla carbonara.
