10 Fun Date Ideas!

Seeing this MyTake got me thinking this list could be longer...

So here we go!

1. Cook or bake something together

10 Fun Date Ideas!

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

10 Fun Date Ideas!

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

10 Fun Date Ideas!

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

10 Fun Date Ideas!

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

10 Fun Date Ideas!

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

10 Fun Date Ideas!

The zoo will allow you to

-Expand your animal knoledge together

-Talk about favorite animals>talk about other favorite things=conversation

7. Play games

10 Fun Date Ideas!

Play truth or dare, 20 questions etc. This can also be part of another date.

8. Visit a museum

10 Fun Date Ideas!

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

10 Fun Date Ideas!

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

10 Fun Date Ideas!

Enjoy the dance, the music and take a stroll or grab a bite to eat afterwards.

  • Grocery shopping is a great idea. It lets you get to know what it will be like spending time with the other person when not everything is as exciting as a date activity. Which is most of the time. And likewise, you can interest the person you are with by showing them that it is you who makes the time spent with you valuable, not the activity.

    Not sure if cooking will always work out since not everyone is comfortable being in someone else's place on a first date. I agree with what you wrote though.

    • Actually 7 is a yes lol

    • You should really visit a ballet sometime. Trust me, many people thought they were boring until they went there. But ofcourse it can't suit you too lol. Thanks for reading!

  • Playing board/card games are so underrated in terms of planning a date.

    My girlfriend and I's first date was going to Starbucks and playing UNO. :-P

  • I like them all, except for ice skating, because there's nothing less sexy than ending a date in the emergency room and the dog date because I don't have a dog :)
