The choice of what you do and how you spend your time at a date will greatly influence the quality and depth of your relationship. It’s not always easy to find interesting and fun things to do on a date but don’t ever stop being creative. Dating doesn’t have to be expensive or common place, you can have as much fun eating a corn on a cob together at a deli as you would have eating Italian at a boutique restaurant.
Here are some interesting tips on things to do on a date.
Enjoy a chow at an exotic restaurant
Nothing better than an evening at an exotic cuisine restaurant that your date has never visited before – Indian, Caribbean, Korean & Thai are good options. Just make sure you’ve been to the place at least once before and know of the food quality and standards there. Eating out is usually the best thing to do on a first date in most cases.
Do community service together
There is nothing more bonding than to work on a community service project together. For example you can help at the old age homes or at a place for special children. If you have never tried this before do give it a shot because it is a fun and constructive means of spending time together on a date.
Go on a hiking trip
This activity is best done in the morning. Take a long hike along the open fields or hills near your area or just drive down to the nearest hiking place. This is a great “no-expense at all” dating idea that you can enjoy.
Browse through a book store
There is something about bookstores that make them pretty romantic, especially if you love books. You may come across some book you read as kids or find some interesting book to talk about. It can turn out into a really interesting dating idea, just be sure to visit a large bookstore.
Get a barbeque going
If you own a rock fire pit, or a barbeque station, in your backyard then there is nothing cozier than a lazy evening of outdoor cooking. Stock up on the beer or wine to make the occasion more fun.
There is nothing more fun than to bake a pizza together or try out a Italian or Chinese dish. You can show off your cooking skills and impress your date, or may be you are a bad cook, but either way it is a great bonding activity.
Play a fun sport
It can be anything – tennis, racquetball, basket ball or even playing catch. There is no better way to unwind and feel comfortable than to use the medium of an interesting sport. Usually an interesting thing to do on a first date to break the ice.
