Its actually quite common. Never understood it myself. Been to plenty of both, generally they are un-sociable events where not much talking goes on.

Of course before and afterwards you can talk more. But hardly practical for early stages of dating.

Maybe thats why for some they are a good choice. You can spend time with someone without having to yap or avoid awkward silences for 4 hours. 90% of our communication is non-verbal.

My first date with a guy was at a movie once. He held my hand.

Loved it.

While this is true, shared silence (or in this case, just not talking) is a perfected art. The anticipation of sitting in the dark with someone you like, stealing glances, holding hands or resting your hand on a leg... I don't know about you, but this is all a prelude to more closeness after the movie ends!

I think it is great. A shared experience that you can talk about afterwards.

How do you pick the right concert or movie before you know the personal taste of the date?

Well, at least it gives you something to talk about afterwards.
