Amazing First Date Fun Ideas
There’s something about meeting a new person without anyone else around that makes for a nerve-wracking experience.
You might think the easiest way to calm down is by getting together at a bar, but why not try out some first date fun ideas instead?
In all of the rules about relationships, there is no law that says you have to gather for coffee or lunch, you can really plan anything you like – particularly if you have some common interests.
When you are just starting out, it can be profoundly helpful to experience stuff together and see if there is any chemistry.
And, once you do, you are in a better position to make the second date that much better. Wondering what to do? Try these four out:
Though most people think of a first date as an opportunity to get dressed to impress, why not try an activity that makes you sweaty and gross? Do both of you like to run?
Then take a long jog and talk about your lives, why you enjoy getting a few miles in each day and so on. You could also try out a local rock climbing wall to see how quickly you develop trust. This is not, however, an invitation to attend a kickboxing class. That’s a bad start no matter what.
Get On the Floor
Dancing is one of the most romantic activities ever invented, yet it might not quite be the most appropriate first date – you don’t want to get too close right away.
That said, you might see about taking some ballroom dancing lessons together, especially if both of you have no knowledge of proper technique.
This gives the two of you a chance to connect on the basis of how bad you both are at something and laugh as you step on each other’s toes. When you don’t take things too seriously, fun is right around the corner.
A Walking Tour
Even if you have lived in the same city for years, you probably have different restaurant preferences for food and drink. See if you can find a couple that are near each other, then have dinner in one and dessert in the other.
But, instead of hopping in the car, walk from place to place and talk about what you enjoyed, why and other places you love to eat. Share memories of previous visits or discuss what you would like to try next time. Not only will you work off some nervous energy, you’ll see where your tastes overlap.
Try Your Hand
The increasing popularity of art and cooking classes can be a great way to work together as a team on a project and – like dancing – enjoy each other’s lack of skill.
Check with your local galleries to see if they have beginner-level sessions in painting or sculpture and peruse the listings on your town’s recreation calendar for cooking lessons. Even if you don’t make a love connection, you will still pick up some kitchen tricks or a nice souvenir for your troubles!
