For those of you who are interested in making your first date with a special someone fun and memorable, I've made a list of some cute date ideas.
An activity like bowling, miniature golf, ice skating, indoor rock climbing, or tennis
Activities that get you moving are great because:
- They're fun and bring out your playful side
- They allow for friendly/flirty competition
- They can help diminish the awkward silences that often happen in the beginning stages of a relationship
- Some can allow for innocent physical contact (e.g. holding hands while ice skating, teaching your date a better bowling or golfing technique, etc.)
Cupcake shops are adorable, and generally very low-key. Going to one is more of an original date idea than simply going for coffee. If both you and your date have a sweet tooth, visit a cupcake shop; they have so many delicious and unique choices to choose from.
Visit a Local Zoo or Aquarium
Animals are fascinating. A zoo or an aquarium can give you and your date a lot of visual stimulation and things to talk about.
Have a Picnic
If the weather is nice, have a picnic in a local park. It's cheap, while still being a very sweet and romantic date idea. You and your date can pack sandwiches and drinks, and bring a blanket, a speaker for music, a deck of cards, and a frisbee.
If you and your date are wine lovers and legally able to drink, then consider spending the day at a wine festival. They're usually located outside, in very scenic locations, and give you and your date a chance to loosen up a bit and enjoy the outdoors. Have a relaxed, classy date with delicious wine, cheese, and grapes.
Have a Date Night In
If you both feel comfortable doing so, have a date night in at one of your places. Order takeout (maybe pizza or Chinese food), light a candle, rent a movie, and snuggle up on the couch under a warm blanket.
