Seeing this MyTake got me thinking this list could be longer...
So here we go!
1. Cook or bake something together
Cooking a delicious meal or baking a nice cake together has these advantages:
-Working together=closer bond
-Talking during the process
-It's a loose, fun activity
-If you mess up, you cannhave a laugh and order takeout etc, if you make it good you have something to enjoy!
-Working closely together
-Often leads to making out or dancing in the kitchen
-Don't have to dress up, because what if your LBD or fancy suit gets dirty??
2. Go ice skating
If your area has an ice skating rink, it can be a fun activity. If not, try roller skating!
-One of you will probably be better at it than the other, you can try to teach the person that's less good at it.
-Most of the time the rink has somewhere to chill and eat or drink something. You've just skated so you're in a casual setting and can keep the convo light.
3. Walk your dogs together
This one's for the pooch lovers among us. Walking your pups together will be a healthy activity and give you the chance to talk.
4. Go grocery shopping
This might seem weird, I get why. I recommend doing this as a second or third or even later on date. But look at it this way:
-When do you bond best with friends? When grocery shopping.
-You'll get to know what the person likes.
5. Go swimming
What's better than going to a nearby beach or pool to cool off?
-Oppertunity to talk
-Swimming is a fun activity
6. Go to the zoo
The zoo will allow you to
-Expand your animal knoledge together
-Talk about favorite animals>talk about other favorite things=conversation
7. Play games
Play truth or dare, 20 questions etc. This can also be part of another date.
8. Visit a museum
If you're an art freak like me, visiting a museum is a favorite.
-You can discuss the art
-You can get a coffee down in the lounges most museums have.
9. Go to a movie
Now, when I say Go to a movie I do not mean visit the movies. That's something I'd do further into the relationship. I mean project a film on your wall or watch one on your tv. Prepare the night by making a sort of adult blanket fort and getting snacks.
10. Go to a ballet
Enjoy the dance, the music and take a stroll or grab a bite to eat afterwards.
