Skydiving First Date?

Met a cool girl. Very active. Says skydiving on her bucket list. I've never done it and always wanted to try. Thinking of surprising her as first date activity.

Good or bad idea?

Thanks

Do it! You'll find out if she's serious or a b.s.er...Nothing worse than empty promises...

There's also an indoor skydiving place very close to me. May be a little safer play...

Good way to figure out if she's a keeper. I'd say if a girl is willing to jump out of a perfectly good airplane. Then she sure won't be afraid of anything like driving a boat or backing a trailer. I say Geronimo!!!!!

Jumping out of a plane is infinitely more interesting than indoors skydiving. I'd say do it - find a place that does tandem jumps from 10000+.

The indoor skydiving is pretty tame but a lot of fun. That might be a good icebreaker with plans to do an airplane jump if you both liked it and want that second date. Good luck!

What are you ever going to do to up that date? I wouldn't set a precedent line that on the first date.

Don't do it!!!

One you will blow a lot of money right out the gate for this trip. You won't get to spend much time with her since ya'll are both first time divers, you will be in instruction and have to jump with an instructor. Yes its cool, but not very personal.... Save it for like a second or third date.

I used the boat on my first date with the girl I have now, if she likes the boat, then you can ask more questions later!!!
