The most common first-date locations are all chain restaurants

There's nothing more romantic than Frappuccinos, apparently.

Clover, a mobile dating app, decided to study where its users most often met for their first dates. The most common first-date location was Starbucks. While it's not the most original idea, the location does make a bit of sense — you don't have to worry about spilling food on yourself or fighting over a bill.

The top 30 first-date spots list includes some surprising contenders, though. Chipotle rolls in at the second most popular spot, and chains like The Cheesecake Factory and Cracker Barrel even made the list.

Clover noted that men prefer to have first dates at restaurants, while women are partial to coffee shops. But if you really want to figure out whether someone is a keeper, wait for their reaction when you suggest a first date at the 13th most-popular spot, Five Guys.
