First Date is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to protagonist Niko Bellic by Michelle from her apartment. The mission is one of the two options given to the player, the other being "Bleed Out".


Niko receives a phone call from Michelle asking him to go out on a date. When Niko arrives at ther apartment, he comments to Michelle her house is very clean, and she asks him where he is taking her. Niko suggests the "funfair", to which Michelle accepts. The two get in Michelle's car and drive to Firefly Island, talking about what made Niko leave his country and what is Michelle's job.

Michelle notes that the carnival is closed for repairs and suggests the two play a few frames of bowling. The two walk to the bowling alley and play a game of bowling. When they finish, they get back to the apartment and Michelle tells Niko she is interested in more dates with him.


The player does not receive any rewards other being able to date Michelle.
